It’s been a complete bust of a day, as far as cleaning my house goes. But who’s the wiser? It’s only the two of us that sees the mess and it will still be here waiting for me when I’m ready.
I spent several hours looking for, in vain I might add, a belt for my Eureka vacuum cleaner. It’s ridiculous, really, that such a common item was either not available or sold out at the five fine shopping establishments that I visited today. Forces in the universe were against me today, that’s all.
At the final place, a Lowe’s in Middletown DE, I was so disgusted that I ended up just buying another vacuum. It’s an inexpensive lightweight Shop Vac upright that was only $49 on sale. It’s nothing to write home about but should have come with earplugs – it’s that loud.
More good times.
So I’m posting some photos of the Reading Terminal Market in Philly that I took last Monday, just for the hell of it. And they’re not that great, so don’t get on my case. (As if you would, dear readers).
We had Bassett ice cream for dessert (among other things).
You can get anything you want at
Alice’s Restaurant the Reading Terminal Market.
Even plants, jewelry and beauty supplies.
Apparently, this is also where the Jolly Green Giant gets his giant jaw breakers. I don’t know who else would want a jawbreaker the size of my fist.
They even come on sticks. Gah! It’s a dentist’s nightmare!
Now yer talkin’, mama. Sweet chocolate.
My idea of the perfect dessert. I mean, just open a jar of each and and grab a spoon. Oh, my. Did I say that out loud?
I went into this specialty shop to see if they had any Marmite, one of my husband’s favorite oddball food items. They were completely sold out but another shipment was on its way. I toyed with the idea of getting him a jar of Dundee marmalade instead but didn’t want to spend the nearly ten dollars on it.
And now I only hope I haven’t overly excited you with my day.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
