Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday.
Its time to join the lovely ladies for T over at Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog. Today for T, I'll share a few highlights from the past week.
Last week I had a fun and busy week as it was school vacation week here in New Hampshire. Not that I am on school vacation any longer, but a couple of my teaching friends still are. I got together with one of them one day and went out to lunch and then caught a movie. We went on Monday, and it was really cold. The whole week was cold, although Monday it never hit 20 degrees F (about -7 degrees C) and the wind was blowing down from the Arctic making it feel a lot colder. The only other person in the restaurant was the waitress. There were only 2 kids in the movie theater too, and they were sitting a few rows in front of us. We went to see the latest Spider Man movie that has been out since before Christmas as we are both fans of Marvel movies. I think as this isn't a newly released movie that might explain the small crowd.
This was my first movie in a theater since before covid took over in 2020, and it was nice to feel like I was doing something normal, even though I don't think I would have been comfortable if the theater was crowded.
I also went shopping with another friend on Thursday. This friend is the woman I usually walk with, but there was no place to walk between new snow on the ground, another cold and windy day, and the tides at the beach that didn't work for us. We bundled up and ended up walking 10,000 steps (hurrah) around the stores. When we got cold we could step into a store as we visited one of those outdoor shopping outlet malls. It was cold so it wasn't crowded there either.
In one of my step inside to warm up moments I found some new walking shoes.
I have small feet and can wear a large sized kids shoe. They had some of these waterproof hiking sneakers on a kids ready to unload mark down table. I even had a color choice; orange or pink. I went with pink. My husband, who wanted so badly to do his favorite thing and tell me I spent too much money, had to admit they were a good deal. Ha-ha! And since I had a birthday last week, and, as my husband now likes to remind me, I am old enough to collect social security (although with a big penalty so I am not collecting it), I can say I will have the snazziest "old" person shoes on my next walk. Ha-ha-Smile about the old word.
My daughter came home over the weekend, and we finished the puzzle that shows the inside of a Costco warehouse. It had been a gift for my husband at Christmas. (Sorry, there's a bit of a glare in the middle.)
Anyhow, this post is for Tuesday T day, so here is my drink related part of the post. Are you a fan of peanut butter?
I love peanut butter. I don't eat it daily, and I'm not obsessed with it, but I wouldn't turn down a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a peanut butter cup.
So my ticket to T this week is my new favorite store bought cookie. Last week after my allergy shots I ran errands, including a stop at Trader Joe's. I saw these cookies, and since they are chocolate and peanut butter, I decided to get some to try.
