C is for... Change



Posted by Picasa

The first C word that came to my mind was the word Creative. I could just see the word so clearly in my mind's eye as a fancy font in the Coca-Cola style of writing. Can't you just picture it? I had been creative earlier this week. Please refer back to my previous post entitled "What Can I Sow Today?" Let me know what you think.

Then I remembered I had taken some C pictures last week all in one location across from the library, but not all turned out the way I saw them through the camera's lense. A new CVS store had been recently constructed . This CVS had several signs out front as well as one of those changing billboards that was advertising Chick-Fil-A to the left hand side, but it didn't show up in my photo so I deleted it. Sorry. In the center was Country's barbecue, THE best barbecue in Columbus which was behind CVS. There was a new huge billboard for the new CVS above it all that referred to it as "The New Kid on the Block" which I thought was cute>. I liked the idea of the ABC blocks used, thinking it was perfect for ABC Wednesday. It also had something about CBS Broadcasting in a smaller font towards the bottom left hand side of the billboard. This would have made a great Sky Watch photo but alas, I used it here instead. Then the CVS store had a digital sign that simply said, "CVS" on it. Since the store is not open yet, it was not scrolling words. So I would have had 5 C's in one place if it had worked our right. Oh, well...

I think I am getting Alzheimer's because I completely forgot about these C word photos. This is my second senior moment this week which is a bit scarey.

Yesterday I picked up lunch from China First Buffet. As I was leaving, I snapped a quick shot of their sign, but chose not to post it. I know David and Josie used Chinatown as their C word.

Today was Rhett's first day back at school; his first day of fifth grade. You would have thought it was mine because I changed clothes twice before we left the house! I had on cropped pants which showed off my ghostly white ankles. I figured I would freeze my feet off at work in my matching sandals so I changed into a new pair of black slacks I bought on sale at Dillard's for $9.75! They are constructed like jeans only they are made of thin cotton material. They have cool zippers on the ankles. I am going to go back to buy another pair! I kept on the hot pink top I first donned.

The first day of school is always chaos and seems to get more chaotic each year. By the time I got back to my car after helping Rhett carry in his supplies, my air pits were as wet as when I was in the shower earlier. I went back to the house to change yet again. I'd also bought a new soft cotton pink t-shirt for $5, but it was too big and made me look fat. I was beginning to feel like Goldilocks. Too cold. Too hot. Too big. Nothing just right. I reapplied more deodorant and settled on another pink blouse.

Hope Rhett had a great first day today. I was contemplating giving him a treat this evening to celebrate. Walgreens sells smaller Webkins for $6.99. He wants a cow this time around. He says he can get some sort of special Webkins cash with it. I'd told him he'd have to wait til pay day, but I changed my mind much like I changed my clothes! So I guess my C is really about change. Normally I do not like change. I like things to remain the way they are.

Had another Illy Nilly episode over a copier problem, but that is another post.

Today I am thankful gas came down in Columbus. I got it for $3.64. I'd left my gas cap hanging, but did not know about it until a Sgt called to tell me at 4 pm!
