WHAT'S WITH TUESDAYS?
OK. What is it with Tuesdays?
I started out this morning thinking I would do several errands. I was thwarted at every turn. It seems that everything from bakeries, to nurseries, to gift shops (even the Bird Observatory Gift Shop) are all closed on Tuesdays. Are they thinking that they need that day off after four-day-weekends? How many four-day-weekends are there?
I did find, almost by accident, one nursery where I could buy a new hanging basket. And then discovered that they also sell hummingbird feeders. and I did want a second one.
And on the way, I also found that Cape May Point has planted the island dividing the lanes at the beginning of Lighthouse Avenue just off Sunset Boulevard very beautifully. That was a nice discovery.
So I had a pretty ride. Until I was on the way home, and had to stop at the gas station. Half a tank of gas for $38.00! That is sad.
I'm glad I don't find it necessary to drive very much any more. I would like to just drive around as I used to, but it isn't really that necessary. So of course, I don't do it.
Now I'll just have to remember not to try to run errands on Tuesdays.
