The weather was fantastically beautiful today, so of course we spent most of it indoors.  Everybody who played pickleball had other stuff to do today, including us.  We drove the truck 50 miles to Katy, TX for some major shopping. 

First stop was the JoAnn store for some fabric I need to finish my projects. I really like the new Christmas fabric this year.  I found a piece that will complete the project I started on Saturday.  I hope I still like it after I cut it and lay it out.

Next stop was lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse with a gift card from last Christmas.  After that was a trip to Costco.  There we stocked up on our favorite dark chocolates, among other things.  Texas is a little short of Longhorn Steakhouses and Costcos.  They are few and far between.  We were glad to take advantage of them. 

Last stop was Camping World.  Duane has been depriving himself of satellite tv for six years and making due with antenna tv, but the terrible reception here has done him in.  We are only 50 miles from Houston, but for some reason national channels like ABC, NBC and CBS will just disappear for a minute or for several hours for no apparent reason.  This is especially frustrating with something like NCIS when the killer is being revealed in the last 3 minutes and the reception disappears until just into the next show.  I don’t mind watching it next day on the computer, but it drives Duane nuts.  Now he is a happy camper.

Whenever we were in a store I shopped for Christmas presents.  Since we’re on the road we have to have boxes ready to mail during the first two weeks of December for them to arrive on time.  A couple of boxes need to be sent even earlier people who will be out of town.  With only two to three weeks left, we’d better get our projects done!

We will fit in another ride before we leave, though.
