- 4th of July company, and
- a trip to North Carolina, followed immediately by
- a trip to Florida?
Seriously, I have to cook like 15 things today, plus sweep and mop the floors, make a quick-but-important trip to town and go to a meeting 25 miles away tonight. My husband has promised to do the half-dozen or so cleaning things on the second list. We’ll see how that goes. Heh.
Yesterday morning my husband and I took a 10K walk together (3.5 mph pace), which is always nice. I seriously can’t remember one time that we’ve every walked and had any kind of disagreement. I tend to be chatty, while he likes to listen and think, so it works pretty well for us. He did relist all his reasons why I shouldn’t try running a marathon at my age. Grrr.
While I was at the grocery yesterday, I realized that higher food prices may be the answer to this country’s obesity epidemic. Seriously, who can eat when a 10-oz. container of grape tomatoes is selling for $4.99? I was astonished! Not only can one not afford grape tomatoes, the very fact that one would have to hand over a five-dollar bill (plus tax – we are in West Virginia, where they tax everything) for them simply takes your appetite away.
I see a new diet book in my future. You’d buy it, wouldn’t you?
Posting for the next couple of weeks will be spotty … please don’t delete me from your Google Readers!
