I drove into Rancho Cordova today, taking great care with my route. I didn’t have any problems with traffic, but I had plenty with concrete barriers in parking lots. Have I said how I hate those things? I got my dog some biscuits for treats at PetsMart, and then drove to a store to get myself some little odds and ends. I feel so much more useful when I can do things for myself, and it is easy to become lazy when you allow others to chauffeur you back and forth.
We are invited to Steve & Meg’s for a bbq tomorrow evening so I have no choice but to ride along with someone. Driving in the dark would be a killer for me.
Yesterday evening I watched my granddaughter’s dance lesson, which is an hour and consists of ballet, tap, and jazz. I am so glad she is taking tap dancing – I showed her how the shoes can make lots of noise and how much fun it is. She picked right up on that!
After the lesson we went next door to El Pollo Feliz – the Happy Chicken – for a wonderful meal. It is a small family owned place and they do everything they can to please the customer. I ate about half a jalapeno pepper and thought I was going to go completely blind! Several glasses of water later, I could see and talk again. I love that spicy stuff.
