I had lots of chores planned for Thursday that did not get done, in large part because I went to the mall for a raid in the morning, ran into a friend there with whom I had lunch, then met my mother and ended up shopping with her for a couple of hours, first at the mall and then at Strathmore's mansion shop, which has beautiful jewelry.
