I am a little sad today. I can remember when we never worried about
our food supply - salads and melons and meats for us and doggie
treats for our pets.
Maybe we weren't aware there were problems and were lucky
enough not to be affected.
I do know that before the 20th century, there were few safeguards in
the meat industry with terrible conditions.Then there was a movement to
correct that and regulations were put in place.
I was hoping we had advanced enough to have solved those issues.
Too bad I didn't have a better subject to use with the time before sunset.
This is about half the new market we have in our town. It not only has groceries; it has clothing, furniture, a jewelry store, a coffee shop, sushi bar, about 200 different cheeses, bakery and pharmacy.
L. bought three beautiful peaches that looked like the one on the right.
Tonight I washed one and cut into it.
Not a pretty site.
They were all discolored and not something I would eat.
These were grown in the USA/EUA.
I would like to complain at the new Market Place but probably won't.
Flowers to bring me joy while
I recover from reaction to flu shot.
I definitely think everyone should get one.
I will get one next year...
Seventeen hours feeling bad is better than having the flu,
I keep telling myself.
When we were out of something, I can remember my mom saying,
"We are fresh out."
That's what I am.
Fresh out of ideas for the blog.
That will not stop me.
I have permission to post this New Chair
Does this look comfortable?
It is to help you use your body to support and
strengthen your core. . .while you work.
I don't know why a row of empty chairs seems so odd to me. Are these ever completely filled with people waiting to see the doctors? I think there are only four physicians on this floor. Besides the ones seen in the photo, there are more lining the other three walls, and many in the middle.
Tonight we ordered take-out. A cheeseburger from our favorite joint, Lone Star.
When I went in to pick it up, there were two containers. I thought the fries must be in the second one.
When L. opened the first styrofoam box, he was sure we had gotten the wrong order. There were four rolls and some honey butter!
But the other one was loaded with fries and a giant cheeseburger.
Then I remembered...when you eat there, you get a basket of rolls while you are waiting for your meal, no matter what you've ordered.
Well, today was a follow-up to a strange sleepless night.
Awake till after midnight;
Awake at 3:30 a.m. and finally up at 5:00;
Back to bed at 7:00;
Slept till 11:00 a.m.
No wonder when I ordered at Starbucks I asked for a "Tall, vente, decaf mocha."
Confused the heck out of the clerk on the other end of the speaker.
I got a tall. I guess if there is any question, they honor the first word spoken.
L. noticed what I said, but apparently he is so afraid of my wrath,
he never did tell me of my mistake!
I didn't realize it till after I got home. I then called the shop
and told them I was the nitwit who ordered two sizes for one cup.
The barista laughed and said they were a little confused.
Just another day in the life of an aging nutt.
