Thursday was terribly cold and rainy and I decided after feeling pretty chilly for a few hours that maybe the heater wasn’t working. Sweet Ralph tried his best to get it working but we decided we needed to call PSE&G. The lovely recorded voice told me that a technician would be here between 4 and 8! Well at least it wasn’t 4 to 8 days from now! We figured we’d survive. 🙂
I went on my planned trip to Verchio’s produce.
Hey really have the best fresh produce around and the best prices. It was however incredibly damp and cold inside. I was already freezing from no heat in the house, and this didn’t help.
Anyway, here’s my haul…
They had no clementines 😦 but they did have tiny mandarin oranges (which didn’t make the photo) I also got Brussel sprouts (!), apples, pears, honeydew melon, pineapple, red bell pepper, Romaine and my very first mango!
I often have a hard time figuring out how to pick a fruit, especially one I have no history with. I picked one that was smooth skinned and firm so we’ll see how it works when I finally attempt to cut it up.
The rest of the day was again a little off track. Spent most of the afternoon at Gail’s house helping (and staying warm!) The service man came at about 5pm and just as I was in the car heading home, Ralph called to tell me he was finished. I was happy to hear that.
Dinner was another salad with veggie burgers, which I realized was all I had eaten all day! I have to work on that, I’ve been missing meals and that’s not a good thing. We finished off the last of the cinnamon loaf with coffee. It was tasty and a nice treat.
Now it’s Friday and it will probably be another disjointed day.
I know it’s April Fool’s Day. I hope to NOT make a fool of myself today. We’ll see how that works out! 😉
I do want to share a quote that I received in an e-mail today…
“At all times and in all places, always be the first to smile.”
I like that…I’ll try to remember it today. Happy Friday!
