Mega Mall Trip...Aborted

November 28th, 2014 at 05:57 pm

I was going to hit the mall for my once annual trip but after spending about 2 hours at some other non-mall shops, I hopped on the Interstate to head west to the mall and Trader Joe's. It was all backed up. Just not worth it, so I took an exit home. I was getting a little tired and hungry, but I may try again tomorrow.

I do really need to hit Trader Joe's as I'm low on food and they have a number of items I can't find anywhere else, like the recently discovered frozen julienned root vegetables (beets, parsnips, sweet potatotes). Really, really good, like the frozen marinated zucchini and eggplant slices I like.

I did go to a lovely garden nursery gift shop which has many nature-inspired ornaments and gifts. I got a small glittery copper-colored Xmas tree which will probably go to my boss. I'll save one of the 2 bottles of wine I got last night for the Secret Santa gift exchange, a safer bet for someone who might not be Christian.

Here's the new shelf my friend installed for me last night.

I filled up the gas tank and browsed a mineral/geode store. Also picked up some air filters for my air purifier at Lowe's, but they didn't have the reusable mouse traps I also wanted.

    I really should check out Trader Joe's more often for their unusual frozen items!

    Since they've forwarded grey Thursday and black Friday way up here, a group of us who are considering updating/upgrading electronics decided we'd join forces and visit at least two electronic malls. However, our weather abruptly changed and it snowed all night. It was minus 21 with wind chill around minus 30 and police were pleading with everyone to stay off the roads. The wind was causing cars to slip, slide and run into the ditch! We waited till noon but it got worse so trip was cancelled. The 6 PM news saw the malls quite busy in spite of driving conditions.

    They had frenzied shoppers in UK [England] where people were fighting and 6 women were arrested for assault!

    I hadn't wanted to go out at all, but ended up going out around noon to get something fixed on my phone. There wasn't too much traffic thankfully, even though the store was near a mall.
