First of all - I have a/c in my car again! Randy is totally my hero!
I did much better than I expected this weekend. Friday night was date
night. Randy & I went to Cheeseburger in Paradise. The mini
sliders for an appetizer weren't the best choice, but he had them
ordered before I knew it. And the "Electric Lizard" tasted entirely too good to be healthy. Coconut rum & melon liqueur. But then I ordered grilled tilapia & shrimp with steamed broccoli & it was gooooooood!
Saturday, Randy left fairly early. I took a 2.3 mile bike ride, came home and grabbed the dog and went for a 1.3 mile walk with him. I could really feel THAT in my knees later! Then I stopped for breakfast at Tim Horton's (and I tracked those 18 points from my large iced coffee / BELT / Boston Cream Donut!!) on the way to Home Dept and various other places to get supplies for a couple H'ween projects. When I finally got home, I finished one project (putting casters on my life-sized coffin - I'm sure the neighbor's visitors loved seeing me pull THAT out of the shed!) and started on making PVC frames to reinforce the 2 cheap plastic skeletons I got for last year.
I didn't get to eat my big ol' salad that I had planned. I got a text from Randy asking me to bring a whole list of stuff out to him at the Weather Service office so I planned my trip there to coincide with the nightly launch of the weather balloon. It is always fun to watch & it went straight up, so there was NO wind whatsoever!
I was sore from the bike ride / dog walk, but I did get some more exercise on the way home. I passed a really neat cemetery (I know, I know.) so I stopped. And since it was close to 8:30 when I got there, I was afraid I'd get locked in, so I moved fast! The place was huge & the stones amazing.
Today I was in no hurry to get out of bed. A purring cat somehow increases the pull of gravity around him. And Chester was up against my side. The only plans I had were to drop in at a family reunion for the side of the family I haven't seen in forever. I made sure I ate before I went and intentionally didn't take a dish to pass, so I wouldn't feel pressured to eat. You know, picnic food. But that was an epic fail. My cousin Todd insisted I have a sausage & some pasta salad. Luckily right then, I got a text from Angel saying she was back from Cedar Point, so I just ate a little bit to make Todd happy then left to get her. I enjoyed seeing a big bunch of cousins and being amazed at how big kids were getting and wondering who all the littler kids belong to. I really enjoyed seeing my Aunt Linda. She was so surprised to see me! I don't think I'd ever really sat and talked with her. I am so glad I went.
Dinner tonight sucked, Randy occasionally has the urge to get chicken from North Shack. I somehow don't think it is as bad as KFC since they use pressure steamers to cook the chicken and potatoes. But it's not healthy / boring grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast. But it was tasty and we haven't gone there in a long time.
So anyway. I haven't planned out this week yet. It's supposed to be fairly decent the beginning part of this week before getting warmer again. I'm sure I will get some walks and rides in.
Have a great week!
