Just like James Brown sings. Not too sure why, but I do feel great.
Today was an exercise routine day, and I am so enthused about it that I wish I didn’t have to take rest days. But for now I will follow the recommended routine that seems to be tailor-made for me. I have never liked exercising except for walking, but for some reason it resonates with me now. Probably because I’m starting to look like a prune or a raisin, all wrinkly, and I want to stop that train right in its tracks! As an added benefit my posture seems to be getting better as well.
This morning I drove downtown to have blood drawn. I had written down the directions from Google Maps and it looked easy enough. The Garmin had a different route in mind for the last few miles, and I went her way. Easy as can be, and I even found a parking spot. The parking is all metered, of course, and is expensive enough. I used a bunch of my laundry supply of quarters.
I didn’t like having to get back on the freeway to come home, but just followed directions and again, it was easy as can be. I think the time of day is a factor. When I got off the freeway onto Mather Field Road I decided to drive past Bill’s (my ex) old house. The new owners have changed some things so it doesn’t look exactly like what I was used to seeing – there won’t be any reason for me to drive by again. I’m glad in a way – the first time I drove by after he died and the house was sold was pretty difficult.
Today’s agenda included a grocery stop to pick up bread flour and yeast, and the ingredients are in the bread maker right now. If all goes well I will be having bread and butter for dinner. I should find an extra ingredient or two to go along with that, I suppose. On Monday and Tuesday I had the sole filets, and they were delicious! I gave Lady a couple of scraps that stuck to the pan, and she was in doggie heaven!
I’m thinking of getting a newer GPS system, but I get along with this one fairly well and hate to get anything that has a lot more features that I won’t use. I think I’d like to have the voice call the street name for turns – they are printed up at the top of the screen but I can’t read them now. I also can’t read the speed limit or how fast I’m going. That is important to me especially when traveling, but I will have to see if I can just position the unit a little closer so that I can make it out. I doubt if I’ve used the Points of Interest feature even five times since I’ve owned the GPS, and the results were not satisfactory at all.
I think I can get a nap in before the bread is ready. I really shouldn’t do that because I then stay up later in the evening.
