Rain Kissed Leaves

Decided to run errands today . . . get more printer ink . . . more card stock . . . general office supplies.  Needed some groceries.  Bath and Body Works was having a huge sale with some of their discontinued scents.   (Don't you just hate it when they discontinue one of your favorites?  Rain Kissed Leaves . . . why? . . . I can't be the only one who liked it.)  Rain Kissed . . . that should be a clue as to how the day would be.

I got an email from Staples saying that you'd get 20% off of everything that would fit in one of their reusable bags . . . okay . . . worth the hour's drive to the closest Staples.  Got there . . . without the coupon.  I don't have a smart phone or even internet service on my dumb phone.  Luckily the cashier took pity on me when I told her I live an hour away and used her smart phone to access my email and get the coupon code.  Whew!

I just hate using an umbrella with your hands full . . . it was an effort getting that heavy bag in the car trying to stay dry!

Decided to go to Bath and Body Works before the grocery store.  Yet another heavy bag with 6 Rain Kissed Leaves shower gels and 6 body lotions . . . it's discontinued . . . gotta stock up!  Well . . . it was pouring now . . . like monsoon pouring . . . blowing . . . pooling and puddling . . . more like a rushing river in the parking lot.  Made it back to the car soaked from the shoulders down . . . feet squishing.  Got the heavy bag in the backseat.  Got in and tried to close the umbrella.  Why did I try a new hand lotion ! ?   My hands were so slippery I couldn't get the umbrella closed.  More soaking from the rain . . . the rain running off the umbrella on me as I pulled it into the car across my lap.

I can't go to the grocery store like this . . . I'm soaked!  Forget it . . . I'll pull something together for dinner . . . we'll survive!

Home now and had to change my clothes . . . all of my clothes . . . everything!  I'm dry now . . . fresh ink in the printer . . . lots of fun office supplies (don't you just love office supplies!) to put away . . . and smelling like Rain Kissed Leaves.

  1. Sounds like you got some great shopping in, even in the rain.
    I find that too, you find something you really, really like, and then they discontinue it.
    Glad you found your favorite and stocked up!
