Yesterday was my Friday outing to Spiritual Rose. I was gone for four hours, which is longer than I ever leave Charlie. But I gave him a Composure chewable to calm him before I left.
I arrived at the Spiritual Rose store right when they opened and had so much fun looking around. The two ladies were ever so nice and helpful.
My Favorite Iced Caramel Coffee:
Then I drove through McDonalds and bought my favorite iced caramel coffee they sell for a buck fifty. A cheap treat for sure.
Then I decided to drive to Barnes & Noble. There’s a fairly new book on bohemian spaces I’ve been wanting.
But on the way I was driving right past Tuesday Morning. I find lots of treasures there. So I stopped and went in.
Tuesday Morning is always full of surprises and good deals.
So then I drove to B&N. They did indeed have the bohemian book I’d been wanting. But they also had a bevy of books on the clearance table that I was interested in.
What I Purchased At Barne’s & Noble:
Last night I reverently turned the pages of “Global Bohemian”, a book by Fifi O’Neill. I couldn’t wait to see the homes that Fifi and her team toured.
Fifi’s home in Florida used to be more cottage/shabby chic. But the global bohemian bug has bitten her too.
What surprised me most about the book is that it’s boho style mixed with all kinds of other styles. There is the sophisticated bohemian, the vintage bohemian, and all sorts of other styles meshed together.
I decided to eat lunch at a local burger place that has very good prices. It happens to be in the same shopping center as Pier 1. I almost drove right past Pier 1, but I’m so glad I went in because I hit the jackpot there.
They had set up rows of merchandise in the back. All were clearance items because they’re going out of business. I sure hate to lose Pier 1.
I can’t wait to open the seashell chimes I bought. They are beautiful. I’m hanging them inside by the French doors.
Then I drove around the back to the restaurant. I was feeling so good about my outing. It was calming to be out and about with no schedule to speak of.
Where I Ate Lunch:
This restaurant is famous for their burgers and chili. I’d never had their chili. I ordered a taco salad with their chili and beans. It was delicious!
You can have a meal and a tall iced tea in this place for less than $10. So it’s one of my favorite places to go. And they have lots of things to choose from besides chili and burgers.
When I got home I had three sacks of stuff that Ivy immediately charged upon.
Finally I put the sacks in the closet overnight because she was not going to give up. She wanted in those plastic sacks.
Ivy pawed and pawed at the door. She can now reach the knob. I imagine before long she will have figured out how to turn the knob and open the door.
This morning I gave Ivy the biggest sack holding all the paper they wrapped my pretties in. She has been having fun playing with her mouse baby along with the sack.
Sorry for the low light, but I’m sure you can see Ivy. There she is with her precious plastic sack she worried herself over till she got it.
Ivy has got to be the nosiest creature I’ve ever known.
Oh, and last night I watched the last episode of “Wanted” on Netflix. I was so happy to see Lola and Chelsea drive off into the sunset! But sadly the show is now over.
