Bill had to get his blood work done this morning for his annual physical next week, so we decided to head on to Ft Worth afterwards.... have breakfast... and do some shopping.
We're really not big shoppers, but there are some places we like a lot, and being out of the country for the past 3 months made me miss them a little.
The 3 places on my list were... Trader Joe's, Barnes and Noble Bookstore, and to have a double-double hamburger at the In 'N Out. I know.... the last "desire" isn't very healthy, but we eat beef so seldom that a juicy, greasy burger tastes pretty good occasionally.
Since Bill got up at 5:30 this morning (and couldn't eat until his lab work was done) we held off breakfast until 8:30 or so. Breakfast wasn't that healthy... eggs, beans, chorizo and green chile breakfast burrito. Might not be healthy, but, darn! it was good!
On to Ft Worth.... First stop...
Yep! Trader Joe's
The parking lot is wet.... it rained nearly all day.
When Bill & I were in Baltimore last October we stopped at a TJ and bought some really good ginger cookies. Remembering them and reading Al's, of The Bayfield Bunch, blog about buying Trader Joe's cookies I've had a hankerin' for them for quite a while....
These are SO good!
I swear, they almost melt in your mouth.
Of course we bought all kinds of other stuff as well. They sell 100% cranberry juice (not reconstituted) at a very reasonable price... we always load up on that. It's just a neat place to shop.
From there it was down the street a few miles to Barnes & Noble Bookstore.
No photo of the outside... they all look alike...
We're good for at least an hour there. Even though Bill & I both use our Kindles for "everyday" reading, there are some books that are used again and again...
Travel Guides and Knitting Books....
It's never too early to start thinking about the next great adventure.... don't these places sound exciting?
We tend to read travel guides like some folks read novels... so many great places to visit and things to see.
By now it's lunch time, but since we ate breakfast so late neither of us was hungry. We decided to put off the In 'N Out for another time.
Hey, it's as good excuse as any to head back to Ft Worth one of these days for another outing.
That's All For Today!
