I felt the itch to shop today and because I have no money, I ducked into Goodwill. It’s only a few blocks from work and right next to the bus stop. Perfect. I always want to buy mirrors, but unfortunately, I can’t carry a 55-pound mirror back home on the bus. M is probably really thankful for the puniness of my arms.
So since I couldn’t buy the large, floor-length mirror I really wanted for $70 (so cheap!), I bought two baskets. One large one to act as a laundry hamper – I’ve been using a cardboard box ever since my blue mesh one from college got destroyed in Fremont when M’s parents cat, Patron, peed on it.
The other I had to buy because it’s a picnic basket. I love picnics. LOVE. And when I saw there was a hole for a wine bottle, I was completely sold. How cute.I can’t wait to take this basket to CalShakes when we watch Titus Andronicus in Berkeley. I’m going to fill it full of cheese and baguette and yummy nibblies. Can’t wait.
I feel so Alice in Wonderland skipping around with the basket swinging from the crook of my arm. Yes, that did happen.
