All in a day...

I awoke very unwillingly this morning, but my blessed alarm (which I so wittingly had to have...and on the ground level of my condo-in order to convince me to awake)would not be telepathically silenced.
So I rolled (figuratively) out of bed, and to my horror was staring out my window at snow. I knew it was going to be a..."long(I will bless the Lord at all times.)" day.

Kim's chocolate chip pancakes were wonderful! And much appreciated after trudging through snow.

Finally we-Leanna, Cheryl, Kimberly, Ms. V, and myself-hit the thrift stores.

OK, not literally...Kim has good brakes. (Even though she prefers not to use them on yellow. Really it was quite considerate. Otherwise whiplash might have ensued.)

Found some good deals. Mostly books. Some for myself, others for family members. Oh, and I bought some brand new winter boots. That was exciting.

I did manage to squeeze in a short nap b/f heading over to get ready for the Christmas program tonight. It was nice -- the nap.

The program was too. I remembered more of my words tonight than I did last night.

Nichole got her Christmas present from me today. It was a cat...kitten...er, tween age kitty. They're too hard to keep a secret if you're a dorm student.

It's a rescued kitty from Kristen and Zach's neighborhood. His name is Oliver...he's an orphan. Quite the cutie if you ask me. She was very excited. Cats are smarter than dogs. At least they're smarter than her dog. But then again so is your average rock...

Kristen and Zach took me to Caribou Coffee for the first time ever. I really liked their coffee! I had a Ho Ho Mint Mocha...it's made w/white chocolate. Mm mm!


Chatted w/some friends, and then ventured into cyberspace...that about wraps it up. Twas' fun. Nite all!

I haven't been to Caribou in awhile but I do remember that I like the "cabiny" and cozy atmosphere. Wonder if they are still like that?
