The Davis See's store opened a couple of weeks ago, but today was the official grand opening...and grand it was.
It was almost impossible to find a parking place and I had to drive around for several minutes until my parking angel got me a spot directly in front of the store (thank you, Gilbert)
The store is quite a bit bigger than the little shop I've been going to in Vacaville...about twice as big.
I was surprised at all the new flavors, some of them seasonal, but not all. Lots to investigate over the coming weeks! But for now, there were choices.
I found some thanksgiving decorated chocolates -- about 8 of them in a little box -- which I bought to take to my mother, whom I was going to visit when I left See's.
And I found a box of peanut brittle, which Walt likes (me too).
As a grand opening deal, they were giving away a little sampler box of about six different types of candies and I had a $5 off coupon, so I got a very good deal, all things considered.
I also ran into Ned's friend Jessica, who was pleased to see that she had beaten me to the grand opening.
From there I drove out to Eldervilla to "visit" with my mother.
She did open her eyes a couple of times and said something once or twice but mostly I sat there for about 45 minutes, sometimes talking to her (without response), sometimes just reading e-mail or Facebook. Because she was in bed, I didn't have Sandy talking to me, trying to let me know how well she is doing. I'm wondering if I have had the last "interchange" with her that I will ever have, since it has been several times since her birthday and she is always either asleep, or sits and refuses to make eye contact. But it's kind of peaceful to just sit with her, so I don't mind. If she were awake and able to chat, she wouldn't know who I was or what I was saying anyway, so this is almost better.
On the way to and home from Eldervilla, I listened to two
different reviews of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Both
reviewers admitted they had gone to the movie reluctantly and a bit jaded and
lost that feeling within the first 10 minutes and could not stop raving both
about the movie itself and about Tom Hanks' acting job as Fred Rogers (which
they both were skeptical about before seeing the movie). Since we are
going to see it on Thanksgiving, I'm very glad to know that it seems to be as
good as I hoped I would be.
