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.
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. ;)
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.
