» Sunday, April 17, 2016Just Another Short-Time Sunday
Beats me how it happened, but we were up until almost 2 a.m.! I know I sorted the crayons—and there are too many pinks and pink reds and not enough browns and blues! Bring back raw umber!—but, wow, time got away from us. So it was natural that we didn't get up until eleven and didn't go shopping until after noon. At least we didn't have to go to Kroger; we just went to Publix. I like going better on my own; James likes to shop around in grocery stores—I go in, get what's on my list, and am outta there.
We brought the perishables home and then went out to do a couple of other errands: drop by CVS to spend a coupon (got more BreatheRights and some other things for James) and Bed, Bath & Beyond for a new cylinder for the Soda Stream. Then a chance to relax at Barnes & Noble. James got a new David Weber book and some magazines; I noted a few books I might want, but am waiting until the coupons get closer to running out before making a decision, as there may be something else published in the meantime. I did buy a simple photography book that was on sale. I'd like to take a photography course after I retire.
By the time we got home, it was suppertime. James warmed up our soup, which we got from Costco. They make a thick, noodle, carrot, celery, and chicken filled soup from the rotisserie chickens; it's almost more stew than soup. While he was doing that, I walked Tucker, so when I got back in, supper was all ready. I changed clothes before I ate—sadly, it's suddenly time to go from t-shirt and pajama bottoms in the evening to shorts and a tank top. It was 74°F today and will be 80 by tomorrow. Barf-o-matic.
Spent the evening watching a rerun of America's Funniest Home Videos, then another very sad Call the Midwife (odd, if that's all they did for the typhoid carrier was tell her to wash all the time, why was it so much of a problem for Ruth Warner on Doctor Simon Locke?), and finally a special about why dogs look the way they do.
