After a fun/late Friday night, I decided to lay low on Saturday. I was up by 7:30ish, Carl couldn’t believe I stayed out or up that late. I am normally in bed by 9pm most of the time. We got up, had our cup of coffee and decided to run a few errands. We had to go to Cub Foods but I had asked if we could take a detour to Barnes and Noble. 🙂 I wanted to check out the puzzles and games. Nerd alert, I know! 🙂 I love being a B&N Member!
I got the game Farkel (I have been told to play it and that it is a blast) and I found a cool panoramic puzzle of New Year’s on Broadway.
We also browsed the books to see if there was anything good. Carl had picked up the Steve Jobs book. For being a web designer that is a must have book on the book shelf. I love looking through the bargain books because they great books for a great price. I found the book Where Were You When the Music Played? for only $7. What a great deal .
I was looking through the book and of course stopped on the page titled “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”, anyone would stop at that title song. It was very sad news when my sister texted me and said that Whitney Houston had died. At first, I thought it was a celebrity hoax, but then Carl grabbed his iphone and looked it up. Ever since I was a little girl and had heard the song “I Will Always Love You” I was hooked on her music and voice. I even have the soundtrack to her movie The Preacher’s Wife. What a sad sad day in music history, she was a legend and an icon. It is a shame that the trials she went through were more of a struggle than what she could handle. I was looking forward to her comeback.
Anyway, thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
