Something For Sunday

On Mother's Day, Stephanie and Nicky gave me a gift card to Dillard's. Since I posted the pics about all the clothes I'd discarded, they thought I might need something new. 
I went to the mall for the first time in--probably--a couple years. I hadn't been since long before the pandemic. I think this new Dillards has been open for at least 2 or 3 years! I needed a swimsuit cover-up, so thought that would be a perfect thing to shop for. I took this selfie and sent it to Stephanie and Nicky. Then I waited for the store to open. I'm an early bird. I waited about 10 minutes and thought, "Hmm, I wonder why they haven't opened. They always opened at 10 a.m. That's when I walked up to the window and saw this:
Are you kidding me! I guess I'm not used to Covid hours. I do know that most businesses are having a real hard time getting employees to come back. And, it has nothing to do with Covid! That's all I'm going to say about that!

Anyway, so now my Dillard's plan was dashed. I headed on down the mall to the next store I'd planned to go to. That's when I noticed this:
I love Auntie Ann's! I can't have them right now, but one of these days! This is a whole new wing of the mall that I had never been in before. Then there was this:
It's killing me! I do love sweets---anything with cinnamon, sugar and frosting is right up my alley!

I continued on to Soma--I needed a couple of brassieres. Now I don't really call them that, but thought it sounded nicer than "over the shoulder boulder holders!" Anyway, that store doesn't open until 11 either. I went on to Macy's which WAS open. I checked their swim suit department, but didn't find anything. I ended up leaving and arriving 30 minutes early for my lunch date. I sat in mycar and read for a bit. I am never bored. Plus, with the Kindle app on my phone, I always have my book with me.

Okay, that's if for today. I hope you are having a great weekend! I know I am!

  1. We had this exact thing happen to us this week. Went to JC Penney at the mall to pick up something for my MIL and met with the 11:00 opening. Neither Dillards or Macy's were open either. Since it was 10:15 we did not wait around, I will try and run that errand again one afternoon this week.
