It's Thursday and I'm so thankful that we didn't get any snow last night. It was quite dreary in the afternoon and the wind picked up too. I thought sure the ground would be white this morning; the wind is still howling and the temps cold, but I can handle that. I am also thankful that we rejoined Costco; they are building a new store that will be about 10 minutes away, instead of 45 minutes.
We also have a Trader Joes that will be about 30 minutes away, instead of located in Ca. or New Mexico; this store will open next fall as well. I don't buy mixes in bulk, due to the probability of bugs, but love all the other products-such as meats and fish. Hubby and I don't have much on the schedule today, so we are heading down to Costco to look for some misc. items for our new home-tables, blender, etc etc. I may even have him stop on the way home to look at the two recliners I found online-just to see if they are as nice up close as they look online. I doubt we will get them yet, but I do want to check them out in advance.
Several of you have mentioned you aren't familiar with Pickleball and since I share photos the other day of the paddle and ball, thought I'd show you the net. It is played with four people, like doubles in tennis; it is considered a combination of tennis, ping pong and some other sports. Generally, at least here, the game is played to 11 points or a specific number of minutes-like eleven. It can be as fast paced or slow as the players want. Yesterday, we only had 16 players but on Monday there were 30.
I hope you have a great day!
