I’m up late after watching the spelling bee off and on until it was over. I pretty much slept in this morning. I got up about 7:30.
I did all of my exercises. Breakfast was OJ and a banana/blueberry/romaine smoothie.
The weather was beautiful and I got in 30 minutes of sun. My sister had sent me some of her clothes that she thought might fit me. The mailman had wedged both boxes in the mailbox and partially closed it with a rubber band. I tried on one of the tops that has a liner that’s supposed to be slimming. It’s pretty snug. The other things are cool-weather clothes. They fit now. We’ll see how they do when cool weather sets in.
When I came in, I blended up an OJ/strawberry slushie but it was about half what I had yesterday. I loaded up the car with garbage and took off for the recycling center. Turns out that one was closed but it was on the way to the roadside stand that I frequent. I went to it and got some cucumbers and peaches.
I headed out to the center at the foot of the mountain but I couldn’t go that way without stopping to check on Mother. The cemetery is getting grown up in grass and weeds. Those little “lamp-post” looking weeds are everywhere. Mother’s stone has bird poop on it and I didn’t have anything to clean it off. Next time I go, I’ll have to be sure to have some water and paper towels with me.
The center isn’t much farther than the turnoff to the cemetery. I dumped everything and came back to the gas station and filled up.
Back to the house and it was time to eat. I had a banana/pear (my last)/romaine smoothie, tomatoes (no Tajin) and a cucumber.
The sky clouded up and it started storming. There was no sun to be had this afternoon. It has stormed off and on for hours. I’d get back online and it would start in again. It sounds like it may be getting ready for another round. It’s still raining, anyway.
My son called a couple of times today and said he’d call again tonight to talk to me about what I don’t know. I’m going to bed soon. I guess we’ll talk tomorrow.
One of the girls on the forum posted a recipe for watermelon “juice”. She put lemon in it. I didn’t see much need for that so I tried blending half of the half watermelon I had in the fridge. It was good but I like eating it better. I ate the other half half that was left. Then I had some tomatoes with Tajin (I know, I know!) and a small avocado. I didn’t have a salad.
I’ve been printing the bulletin. I usually copy it at the hospital but I’m not going near the place until Monday. At least that’s my plan. If I went in, there would be someone wanting to ask me something and I’d end up working. Sorry, but I’m on vacation.
With that, I’m signing off and heading to bed.
