And thankfully, it seems that the heat wave is done, at least for the moment! Just checked the weather, something I religiously avoid doing as a rule, and we’re only supposed to be in the mid 80′s today!! Hooray for Us!! :-)
Sunday started out with frustration. I had gone to our storage unit with the intention of starting a purge. No, no…the Good kind of purge! I want to go through what’s in there, see what I can get rid of and possibly get rid of the unit itself. Anyone have any “free” storage space I can use?? Just kidding. But my problem was this. I usually have difficulty getting the lock open. That baby cooperated fully. I couldn’t get the door up! And of course, it’s Sunday…The office is closed…no one to help me! :-( So I’ll be heading over there again after the office opens to try to get a handle on this. Today will be a good day for it since it won’t be so hot!
After my frustration I came home, got Ralph up and going and I convinced him I was hungry and needed to be fed! We were off to The Gateway Diner. I had my new favorite…
A broccoli omelette with sliced tomatoes. I’m really enjoy my eggs topped with the grated parmesan cheese. I still get some cheesy flavor with fewer Points…OK by Me!
It was too hot to do much when we got back. I decided I would read. I was desperately trying to finish a book on which I wish I had NOT wasted my precious reading time. A Visit From The Goon Squad.
I’m not even linking this because I don’t want to encourage anyone else to spend their money on it…I wasted a perfectly good Barnes & Noble coupon on it!! :-( I actually would like someone I know to read it to see if they have the same reaction. The reviews on Goodreads all seem to be totally positive or totally negative. I know which group I’m in!! At least I didn’t notice any typos!! However, I was so confused by it, I’m not sure I would have recognized a typo!!
Anyway, I finished it, it’s done!! I went on to another author whose books I sometimes love and sometimes hate, Alice Hoffman. Picked up at Goodwill for 49 cents (I’m still annoyed that they’ve removed the “cents” symbol from keyboards!!) Even if I hated it, I didn’t waste much money. Someday I’ll talk about Catcher In The Rye…paid 25 cents for it at a yard sale…I still want my money back!! But anyway…
Local Girls by Alice Hoffman… So far I’m really enjoying it. It’s short and just what I need right now. A book about people, with a good story. Thank you!! It’s an easy read and I’m almost half way through.
Dinner was quick…had to get back to my Law & Order:SVU marathon! Good old salad in my good old Big Purple Bowl. Simple…romaine, green bell pepper, tomatoes, black-eyed peas (they’re lasting a long time!), sunflower seeds and reduced fat parmesan ranch dressing.
Very filling and followed later by a big bowl of the melons I prepared in the morning. I ate that while watching The Thing From Another World. One of my favorite scary movies!
Speaking of scary…I’m off to see what scary things await me at the storage unit! Hopefully a helpful office person will be able to help me get the door open. It actually reminded me of the scene in Silence of the Lambs, when Clarice is trying to get into the storage unit…hopefully I won’t find any severed heads!!! ;-)
Happy Monday!! :-)
