This week is one of those weeks when I sit at my computer and wonder... what am I going to say this week??? I did a lot of "sitting" and a lot of "wondering" this week. I asked Donna for her opinion on what I should say this week. Her reply: "It will come to you." Thanks Babe. So, the following is "what came to me."
Every Saturday in the late afternoon, Donna and I are more or less "forced" from our apartment while Miss Lucy comes in and takes over and cleans for a couple of hours. So, we have to find someplace to go whether we want to or not. Now, "want to or not" is relative. We could sit there, I suppose... and be in the way, or move from where we sit every few minutes, etc., listen to the vacuum cleaner, dish washer, washing machine, and dryer, all at the same time, as well as Miss Lucy's conversation with her sister (
Miss Lucy has been coming for quite a while and on most Saturday's, we will usually go to a restaurant of choice and have a snack and libations. Sometimes, we will have an early dinner and libations. Sometimes, we just simply walk down to the pool and have libations. We like our libations
But, last Saturday, I suggested going to the mall. Mall Date!!! Baybrook Mall in Friendswood, Texas, about 10 minutes from the apartment. Now, we have been to the "mall" many, many times in the past several months. But, clearly on a tee-tiny technicality... you see, when we go the mall, we go to Macy's. Period.

Update: Just an FYI... I did sneak back over to the mall this week and yes, I did get me some shiny new Vans. We do have a two hour "Road Trip" (cha-ching) planned next weekend. So, we will both be looking pretty "spiffy" at the "tables" in our new duds. Just sayin'...

Recipes: I was reminded this week of a dish I have made several times that is healthy, loaded with flavor, and easy to make. Again, from our "go to" site, skinnytaste, Gina makes it really easy. When you get a chance, check out and enjoy some Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos. Holy Smokes!!! You will find your smile.
Market Watch: At the "close" yesterday, Facebook finished the day at 18.96... Now flirting with 20 points below its opening of 38. How many times can I say "yikes!!!"
The End: As I always like to say, Thank You very much for stopping by and having a quick read in Slu's World. I would like to say that in the last couple of weeks, I have had two friends inquire of me about creating their own Blog. I would encourage not only them, but anyone who has something to say. There is so much pleasure in putting your thoughts "out there" for others to see and read. And "Comments" are like "icing" on the cake for a "Blogger." I receive several each week and I hope everyone understands just how much your comments mean and how much I truly appreciate them. Again, Thank You. And yes to all those interested, Go For It.
Be safe, be smart, and always smile... It's "Happy Friday"
