What Not to Do When You Are Bored

Yesterday (Saturday) morning I was up early, talked to my bff on the phone, cleaned the bathroom, did some laundry, mailed a couple of packages, went to the farmers market and visited with another friend there, and read some email. For lunch hubby picked up brats for us from a local brat fry.... By 2PM I was bored, I didn't feel like cleaning or even reading, it was too hot to do yard work..........I wanted to do I decided to go shopping.

At the consignment shop I found some new Birkenstocks and a pretty, colorful bangle bracelet for summer. I found a credit slip in my wallet from Goodwill (that I had forgotten about) so I stopped there....only spent $4 on a picture frame and storage 'thingie' for the bathroom. And I still have $7 in credit left. :-) I still owe one of my grandsons a BD gift so I stopped at Walmart. I decided upon a bike but wasn't sure of the size, so I'll get that later (now that I figured that out). While I was there I got hubby some new socks and me new undies (stuff we needed was on sale-so I had to get it).

Moral of story: don't shop when you are bored, you never know what you will's cheaper to stay home and take a nap.

When I left the last store the sirens were going off, there was a bad thunderstorm in the area. As I drove through town the wind really picked up and it looked like a dust storm. It rained a very little. On the way home I saw these very interesting clouds over Lake Michigan, don't think I've ever seen these before. It's windy and starting to rain but I'm at the wayside taking photos with my phone. Shortly after I got home the sun came out and the evening was perfect.

Moral of this story: don't take your camera out of your purse.


  1. LOL...I'll have to remember not to shop when I'm bored!

  2. That's what I saw too! Wasn't it cool?

  3. Whoa, impressive clouds. Your post got me wondering what emotional need my constant thrifting serves.

  4. I'm notorious for shopping when bored. I actually did it today ands spent entirely too much money!!! Great pictures you captured of the clouds. It is a bit spooky yet beautiful.
