Old Man


I drove down to Newport today to drop our invitations off with the calligrapher.

On my drive down I ate my lunch:


A banana, a thinkThin bite and a hunk of raisin bread I bought yesterday. It was a random lunch, I agree.


From the calligrapher I had to pick up our champagne flutes and cake serving set from the engraving place. Luckily, it was located in the mall 🙂

I was in the mood for some retail therapy but was really let down today…

Don’t you hate when you go shopping with every intent to buy but you can’t find anything you want to buy??

Well, that was today!

I went into my favorite stores and nothing was jumping out at me I was so disappointed 😦


The last couple of days my joints have been starting to ache a little bit, mostly me knees. I decided to head to Trader Joe’s and pick up a joint supplement.

Which ended up being quite an interesting experience….

As I was looking at all of the supplements on the shelf trying to find a “joint supplement” this old man comes and stands right next to me. I mean directly next to me, he was touching me.

My first thought is

“Ok, this guy does not understand the concept of personal space!”

then I found what I was looking for:


Just as I grabbed it, the old man touches my arm…

Old man: “You know what’s really good for your joints?”

Me: “Oh, nooo. What?”

Old man: “Apple cider vinegar and raw honey. I mix equal parts and then add it to water. I drink it like that a couple of times a day.”

Me: “Ohhh really?”

Old man: “Oh yeah and you know what else it’s great for? Your complexion and your hair. Your hair will become so shiny and healthy,  it will stop falling out in the shower so much. (he’s saying this as he’s spitting on me, still in my personal space!)

Me:” Ohhh, wow…” (I didn’t really know what to say)

Old man: “Oh! Do you suffer from menstrual cramps?”

Me: “Ummm….. no not really…” (getting really uncomfortable now)

Old man: “Well this will wipe them out completely!”

Me: “Good to know!”

From here I put the Joint Support back on the shelf and say:

“Well, I’m going to go and get some apple cider vinegar and honey then!”

I mean the old guy had good intentions but it was quite the strange encounter. Bless his heart!

So I walked around TJ’s a bit trying to kill time until the old man left and I could go grab my Joint Support supplement. It wasn’t a bad place to kill time at, I love TJ’s.

Here are some of the goods I grabbed:


These made for a yummy dinner tonight:


Chicken apple sausage sandwich’s with carmelized onions on top and rutabaga fries on the side. I got the idea to make rutabaga fries from Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers.

So good, I’ve never even had a rutabaga, didn’t even know what it was! I will definitely be making these again.

Other things I got at TJ’s


I got these for Pat, yes for Pat 😉

I made them for dessert tonight:


Chewy, fudgey and yummy! Oh, Pat liked them too…

I also spotted these:



It was the description that really got me, plus the nutrition facts aren’t too bad either so I ate three on my way home:


Even though I didn’t get to buy anything at the mall I can always find something to buy and Trader Joe’s!

TJ’s gave me the retail therapy I needed 🙂
