Take note: If you call someone’s office phone and they don’t answer, don’t just assume they took an early lunch break and drive over to meet up with them anyway.
At around 11:30 a.m., I drove to Marion Senior Services in hopes of meeting with the volunteer coordinator to discuss ways to get involved in the Ocala community with senior citizens. I spoke with a woman at my gym yesterday who distributes meals to people in need and when I expressed interest in volunteering, she directed me to Marion Senior Services.
I popped in late this morning only to find that the volunteer coordinator doesn’t work on Fridays. Bummer.
The woman behind the front desk encouraged me to come back on Monday and handed me a volunteer application for me to fill out in the meantime.
I had lunch plans with a friend this afternoon, but she had to cancel at the last minute. I was already standing in the shopping plaza when I found out she couldn’t meet up and when I turned around to head home, this lovely sight greeted me:
Downpour! You know it’s summer in Florida when the skies are sunny one minute and the next minute there’s a torrential downpour. Yikes.
I noticed a Starbucks within walking distance and since I could get there by walking underneath an awning, I stopped in for lunch and a misto.
Table for one, please! (Pretty sure no one would want to sit with me anyway. I look like a creepy serial killer in that picture. That’s what I get for trying to take a discreet picture in Starbucks.)
I initially thought about ordering a hot panini, but for some reason a cold turkey and Swiss sandwich sounded great.
I added mustard to my sandwich and ate it while blogging away and emailing with some of you fine people! (I had my laptop on me in my tote bag, thankfully.)
The Strangest Thing in Your Purse
Now, since it’s Friday and I’m pretty sure we all love a good laugh on Fridays, I wanted to share some of the responses I received from a question I posted on the PBF Facebook page this morning.
The question: What is the most random thing in your purse right now?
I said that a rogue sock is the strangest thing in my purse right now. Thanks to static-cling, it ended up on my shirt earlier this week and I didn’t noticed it until I got in my car and stuffed it in my purse where it remains.
Your replies cracked me up:
- Tiny jar of jam
- Can of cat food
- Rogue sock (Seriously! I’m not the only one!)
- Stress ball in the shape of a boob
- Catnip mouse
Since I laughed at every response on the Facebook page, I wanted to open up the question on the blog this afternoon…
Question of the Afternoon
- What is the strangest thing in your purse right now?
Aside from my rogue sock, I also happen to have three Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper chapsticks in my purse. My all-time favorite!
