A somewhat frustrating but not-bad-overall weekend:

     I'm up to chapter 24 with my book 2 verbal edits, so only 10 chapters left! Whee! This is also nice because time for editing should be severely restricted in the future. Even if I only manage two chapters each weekend, I'll still finish by early May.

     I stopped by Trader Joe's Sunday because I happened to be in the area. Wandering around trying to ignore how packed it was, just looking at stuff to try out. I went to the juice area...and what should I find but

SPICY CIDER!!!

Ahhhhh what a delicious surprise! So I had to grab four bottles and nearly break my arm getting my little basket to the check-out counter. Maybe I'll buy the rest of their stock next weekend...have to let them know there's local demand, right! ;D

     The reason I was up in that area was to meet my friend Christi--she was treating me to a meal out as a (rather belated) Christmas gift. And I finally got to give her my thoroughly dried-up Christmas tree (made my car smell great on the way over). We had a good time and talked for a couple of hours.

Woohooo!! Spicy Cider!! What a blessing!! =) Glad you don't have to wait for it to be imported from CA anymore...

What was the frustrating part of the weekend?

It certainly was a wonderful surprise! =D

The frustrating bit was that I got all sorts of things done on my to-do list, but not the most 'important' (to me). I'm absolutely determined to plow into it tonight, no matter how many feet of snow fall between now and then. ;)

GREAT NEWS ON THE SPICY CIDER. YOU MEAN I WILL NOT NEED TO SEND YOU ANYMORE.
HOPEFULLY THEY WILL CONTINUE TO CARRY IT.

GOOD TO HEAR YOU FINALLY GOT TOGETHER WITH CHRISTI.
WHY IS YOUR EDITING TIME GOING TO BE SO RESTRICTED?

I hope they keep carrying it too! I wonder how long it's been there already. Though I recently found a 'Trader Joe's group on LJ, and the thing a lot of people post about is their favorite stuff not being carried anymore--so the place seems to change quite frequently.

Editing's been taking too much time away from other stuff I need to work on. Hopefully a follow-up post about the issue tonight...

What a wonderful treat! I found some of my favourite Nudie juice on special the other day and bought four bottles. It's the little things that bring such joy sometimes.

A frustrating weekend? I'm sorry to hear that. But I am also pleased to see that it had its highlights.

It certainly is! Enjoy your Nudies!

I got into this evening what I'd really wanted to get into over the weekend, so I'm not frustrated any more, just behind 'schedule' as usual. ;) All's well that ends better!
