Those who wander

Today feels like the first day I’ve had off in forever.  My job is (thankfully) not the least bit stressful, but I still appreciate a day to myself!

I started out this morning with a nice big mug of iced coffee.

I’m seriously addicted. Do they make iced coffee anonymous meetings? It’s not such a good thing that I work in a mall where Starbucks is a quick trip up the escalator. That reminds me, I really need to take advantage of their Starbucks card. I’d be a triple platinum member (if that even exists) by now if I’d remember to load my card months ago when I began this job.  Anywhoo, I finally think I have a good at home mix. It needs a little tweaking, but it helps with my fix for iced coffee and also helps my checking account!

I had the day to myself. Lately I’ve been using one of my days off to wander. Those who wander….. shop! I’ve had a need to go to Marshalls and TJ Maxx recently. I love to peruse the isles looking for a good deal and keeping an eye out for that once in a lifetime find. I can always count on finding a new mug, plate or bowl that would be great to use here. That is when I remember to take pictures of my food. I’m working on that.

Target. Do I need to say more? I’ve loved Target since the day they opened the very first one in Albany.  I guess you could say it was love at first shop! I go to Target for everything and anything. I use Target to catch up with my best friend once a week over a cup of Starbucks (surprised?) while we shop. I use Target to de-stress. Seriously! My previous job caused me a lot of stress a lot of the time. I would head straight to Target after work for some retail therapy. I know, I’m brilliant. Today wasn’t one of those days. I actually had a reason I was stopping and already knew what I was buying.  Target shopping is no fun this way, fyi. I was on a mission for a new vacuum. I’ve been looking for a small, lite vacuum that would handle pet hair good, plus had the nozzle attachment. I found the Dirt Devil lite at Target. It’s lite, it’s turquoise (but you also had your choice of black or pink!) and it was only $39.99. This bad boy rocks!

Please ignore the dirty filter. But hey, that shows you how good it worked!

Days off, iced coffee, Target and new vacuums. I guess sometimes it’s the little things that make you happy Smile
