this and that

having a normal 2 day weekend
 i have to cram
so much
 into it
 look at that nice bench
we had no time
to sit on it
during our hour long walk
 riverside park
 before the walk
 i had to do errands
the walk
 all i wanted to do
sit on the couch
back forth
college football

 sunday morning
 i slept in

 i woke
 a really weird dream
 pieces of which
 i can still
hours later
i recall
 what woke me
 that my iPhone
 had turned into an iPad
on it
 in arabic

 i really
 to be able to use my address book
it wasnt in english
i was getting very upset
a stranger
 a woman
 took it from me
 she said
if you hold it up in the air and shake
 it it will go back to english
 sure enough
 it did
 i embraced her
 to look up a phone number
only to discover
 it was back in arabic

i was very upset
extremely upset

 i dont even care
why or what
 this was about
i am just glad
 it was a dream
my phone apps

after caffeinating
watching the news
 i headed out
 to get beautified™
to meet my friend
 who toonman calls
for brunch
 we went to theory
 i exchanged a pair of leggings
when i bought them
 the sales person
a size 6 was perfect
 its not
 i am a size 8
 they were nice enough to swap them for another style in medium
we went to zara
a place
 that has a lot of very 'current' clothing
 for not a lot of $$
 i got a pair of plaid leggings/tights that were $19
 how could i not buy them?

we walked up to banana republic
 i found a pair of corduroy slim pants
 in a paisley
 in awesome fall colors
 i am very into pattern pants
 after year
of filling my closet
 classic wool black trousers
  skinny leg jeans in mainly blue or black

 we also went to nanoosh
 for lunch
 mushroom and red pepper humus wraps
with side salads
 really delish
 tho i am sure
they were extremely high in calorie

oh well

 we also stopped into kate spade's new shop on columbus
they were celebrating their grand opening
 white wine and rugalah
 i passed on the wine
 the raisin rugalah
 really hit the spot
i had been craving
 something sweet
 the sweet buys
 i got shopping

 all in all
a really good jam packed weekend

  1. What a weird dream Daryl!! Yikes! At least you have all of your contacts back in English again! 😀😀. I would SO love to have gone to the Kate Spade event!

    It is very difficult to pack all of that into a two day weekend! Hopefully, you will be able to think about retiring at some point!

  2. Am so jealous of your shop-tions!
    Of course........

    Aloha, :-)

  3. What a weekend. We had fun, we saw the Blue Man Group, and some chalk art. I saw my Cowboys lose to the Chiefs and then the finish of Miss America. I didn't even know they had Miss America. It is really a bad idea.

  4. Wow, what a New York kind of weekend. Paisley corduroy pants? I'd love to see a photo of you wearing them, my dear. I had a nice weekend, nothing eventful except the 49ers were big time losers and ruined my honey's evening. Oh yes, and I got stung by a bee at the beach.
    Seriously, a photo of you in those pants.

  5. Hah...treating your ipad like an etch-a-sketch...maybe you're supposed to study Arabic...maybe?

  6. Daryl, Wow, what a whirlwind! Was that really you that swooshed by!

  7. omg, your dreams remind me of mine. & then i wake up feeling tired after so much dreaming.
    you did have a great weekend though!
    mine was good too - although too short, I enjoyed the weather, even if the beach was cold, it was beautiful.

  8. You sure can pack in a lot of activities in a short time--including in your dreams!

  9. I am tired just reading this post! The new Kate Spade Saturday line is very dangerous for me. I am afraid to look at new merchandise! Your dream was rather odd, wonder if it was something you ate? I am hoping to get to the city Saturday and if weather is rainy, the Met it shall be. Am so ready to be back!

  10. Except for not sitting on the bench or being able to relax on the couch with Toonman, it sounds like an awesome weekend. I'm drooling over all the leggings you got. I'm ready for fall and ready to sell some real estate so I can buy some new clothes! Hope you have a great week!

  11. Now that's my kind of weekend!!!
    I love this photograph, too! xo.

  12. Sounds like you had great success with sparking up your fall wardrobe.

  13. And I bet you read a couple of books somewhere in there too hey Daryl :))

  14. You actually make shopping sound like fun! I would at least like the wine and rugalah part:)
