Braving the elements

Today is cold and gray in the Central Valley, but I was up early and out the door by 9 a.m. to shop for a few items.  I started at Barnes & Noble because I know they open early.  Unfortunately, they did not have the Ann Rule book I was trying to find (Powells said they had it, but alas, it was gone by the time they shipped my order), but I found a magazine and a journal.

The shower basket I had bought at Bed/Bath/Beyond didn’t work with the apartment’s tile so I had to return it.  Ross is next door so I decided to hit that store.  Found a coat and and a large pot.  Not what I went in there for, but I’ve been looking for a black coat with pockets and we desperately need to replace our large dutch oven.  Nice thing about Ross:  they offer a 10% discount on Tuesdays to those of us over 55.

Pier One is in the same center so I stopped in there, looking for cushions for the SF chairs.  I found these on clearance:

These are not the chairs on which the cushions will be used.  I just used our Fresno dining chairs for modeling.  I’ll try to remember to show you, dear Reader, how they look in the apartment.  Terry was a little taken aback at how bright they are.  It is unusual for me in that I keep colors pretty subdued.  But these spoke to me (and they were priced so cheap).

I’m still trying to make up my mind about this garbage can at Cost Plus for the apartment kitchen:

  1. Great pillows and magical colors for an SF apartment with Bay vue !…..I always buy soy candles @ Ross.

  2. Somehow I missed this post. I love that you are taking a risk and leaving your comfort zone with the new apartment. I think these pillows and the trash can are lovely! They will surely make you happy just to look at them.

    • I did not buy that garbage can as it was just too pricey. I got one at the grocery store for $5 instead. In works very well. Should post a picture of it sometime, but who really cares about garbage cans?

  3. Only wanna admit that this is very useful , Thanks for taking your time to write this. “Guilt is a rope that wears thin.” by Ayn Rand.
