Wednesday Woes

I woke up Wednesday morning with a sore back and weak legs. There would be no lawn cutting today!

Breakfast was soft scrambled eggs and toast. Both were good.

I officially gave up on fixing the toilet (it needs a new wax ring and the bolts). I was so fixated on getting the nuts off the bolts it never dawned on me I wouldn't be able to pick the toilet up even with the nuts off. So, I called a plumber. He's supposed to come out Friday afternoon.

I set up an automatic payment plan with WOW to avoid problems in the future.

Lunch was the last hot dog and the rest of the mac & cheese.

I spent most of the afternoon laying in bed with my feet up. I was binge-watching the HGTV show "Property Brothers." I did do the Wednesday wash, though.

Ran out of shows at 9:00 p.m., so I made dinner. I fried six chicken drumsticks (using the non-breading method) and roasted a package of Brussels sprouts.

Sidebar #1: Fried chicken that is not breaded is also not nearly as pretty as breaded. But, it tasted so damn good!

Sidebar #2: Every roasted Brussels sprouts recipe calls for putting the olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and tossing the Brussels sprouts in it. I don't do that. I put the oil, salt and pepper in a gallon baggie, add the Brussels sprouts and massage it. Much less messy!

I watched a fascinating show on PBS's "Nova" and then the 11:00 p.m. news before going to bed.
