Window Shopping

Ugh, it’s always so hard to be back at work after a long weekend.

There are tons of emails to sort through, work to be done, and other things to catch up on. The only good thing is that this week is one day shorter than normal :)

Nick and I had a bunch of leftovers to choose from for lunch today, and I ended up with the last of the apricot turkey dish, whole grain mix, and broccoli.



The mix of apricots and balsamic vinegar was so good! I’m going to have to make it again.


And I had a tangerine for a sweet ending.


During our lunch break, Nick and I like to go run errands or just go walk around stores in town to burn time AND just to get us out of the office for a few minutes.

Even when I have no money to spend, I could spend hours in bookstores, local health food stores, and some clothing stores :) It’s fun to just to see what’s new, what things are on sale (when I do have spending money), and I like just being able to walk through a place and really look at what they have…not to mention, it takes my eyes off my computer screen for a few minutes during the work day.


What stores could you spend hours in, regardless of whether you had money to spend?


  1. Grocery stores! Oh gosh – I already spend way too much time in there – but if I find a nice one that’s quiet and not too crowded…I could be in there for DAYS!
