Ice Cream Days.
Today was Haircut Day. 10am. Cut it really short. Feels good. And not a lot of "product" gumming things up.
Then the Greenhouse next door where I worked for Ten Years. We had a small reunion out back behind the glass house-always a nice breeze there. No red marigolds. Lots of yellow ones. But then one of the gals working pointed to a new table of orange ones. I bought orange. I already have lots of yellow.
Then the Library and new books by two favorite authors and two Old Old Favorites. Bet Me and Agnes and the Hitman by Crusie. I am going to order those two at the Gulf of Maine bookstore if they come in Trade paper. I am preparing for when I can't drive and -sigh- have to wait for someone to take me to the library. When I am older. I am taking a "long shot bet" that I will still have my VISION and be able to read books. The Bargaining Stage.
Hot dogs are finished. I have two "prepared meals" from the Grocery Cooler. Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes and a good sized portion of Broccoli in each container. I am reminded of buying and eating them the previous year of COVID. Next up will be the Tucci Vegetable Pasta. I have cans of diced tomatoes to use with the onion, celery and carrot. Fall back is Pancakes. I didn't buy Bread. Trying NOT to buy Bread. And I have Cherries. And a tub of Vanilla Noosa yogurt to go with the Cherries. I also bought Romaine Lettuce for a big salad with Carrots and BBQ Pork. And Cheddar cheese.
I am making an Index card with these meal ideas. Sticking it to the cabinet. To remind me.
Sigh. Soon we'll be eating fresh Mozzarella and Tomatoes with Basil leaves. Sweet Corn. I am thinking of Food today.......getting my "ducks in a row' so to speak and take out choices are slim to none here and restaurant meals are a "thing of the past". Husband won't eat carry out. He just won't.
I wouldn't mind some Manicotti or Eggplant Parm from a favorite restaurant with a great side salad.
