I was so excited to try ordering my groceries online for pickup this weekend for the first time. Sunday is usually my grocery day but I had a ton of stuff I wanted to do to get a jump on for the week. I planned on ordering them first thing Sunday morning and then sending Tom to pick them up in the afternoon when they were ready. I swear when I was first puttering around on the website it said that you had to order them at least 5 hours before pickup so when I tried to book a time slot this morning it said I had to have ordered them before 1 a.m. of the day I wanted them. So that was disappointing, and I had to go out and get them and didn’t get anything I wanted to get done at home. I have no idea why but grocery shopping takes a minimum of 2.5 hours here. Walk over, get sidetracked in the mall, get groceries, walk home, put everything away (and clean out the fridge). It’s usually closer to 4 hours, and then there went my afternoon of productivity 🙁

I still haven’t bought the faux fur jacket that I liked (you can see it in the above photo from when I tried it on last week). I really want it but I also want to save for a pair of Anine Bing Charlie boots (short or regular, I’m not picky) which is such a blogger cliche (that I am totally late to because you know? Broke.) but I have liked them  since I first saw them years ago and didn’t even know what brand they were. Come on this weeks’ llottery tickets, momma needs a vacation and a pair of Anine Bing boots (and if you are feeling super generous I’ll take that coat as well). Kidding, almost. I do play the lottery every week, and I would buy all those things if I won. I’ve never won anything more than $485 so I’m not holding my breathe.

The heat came back late last week and I am not happy about it. I’m just wearing my leather and sweaters out of sheer spite and protest while I slowly roast inside. Let’s hope it changes back again soon.

I recently started reading The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis. From what I have read so far it is really good. It grabs your from the first page an holds on to your attention throughout. If you like time travel, and/or the medieval time period (in the time of plague) then I recommend it.

Have you read any good books lately? I’m always looking to add to my to-read pile.
