Retail Therapy

Yesterday I went to the Apple Store to get software compatible with my microsoft applications at work... so that I could work from home this weekend.  Well, I walked in that store and saw all those pretty new ipods and thought about spending the same amount of money for software so that I can WORK from home - using my own time and money... well, I just didn't do it.  I bought a new iPod.  Oh, it is so nice.  

I went for a trail run at sunrise this morning.  It was glorious.  I am so blessed to be a healthy sober woman living in one of the most beautiful places on earth.  

My son is coming over later to watch the football game with me.  I am making pizza... two different kinds.  One with tomatoes, onion, and garlic - that I will roast and then puree into sauce... yummm.  The other will have figs, caramelized onions, goat cheese and arugula.  Guess which one my son is likely to eat?  

My daughter should be home from her european trip later today.  I am so looking forward to seeing her and hearing about her trip.  She sent me post cards with pictures of beautiful cathedrals in many different places.  

Being sober is a very good deal.

Is that the one where you shake it to change the song? I'm rough on electronics. It won't be long before I have an excuse to trade up to that one.

Lou, it's the one which you drop it out the tenth floor window...and it breaks! Not a TIMEX.

MC did you color-coordinate the iPod with your quilt on purpose? NOTE: I can see colors now. Watch out, bloggers!

Yes, you can shake it to change the song... which is very cool.

And yes, I did chose the quilt for the backdrop to my photo because of the colors. Isn't it pretty? I made it for my granddaughter - and then wouldn't let her remove it from my house. She can have it when she is older.

Nice IPod. Now you'll have to consider getting a Bose system to plug it into. I have one of those and it is great.

Mary Christine said...

Syd, I am actually considering that... That little iPod is 8 gigs. that is a lot of music!

the apple store is evil. all those bright colors and things to touch. I like the blue...thought maybe you would have bought the pink.

I'm also jealous of your headlamp for running. I've wanted to buy one for months and just never take the plunge...

hope you have a good Monday.
