Dry Hump Day



Wednesday was hot and sticky. You could feel the humidity when you walked out the door, even in the morning. Unfortunately, that made the walk outside at 10:00 a.m. less than pleasant.

I went to Westborn Market at lunch. I got the items on my scrawled list, browsed a bit, ran into my Latino friend and thanked her for the Abodo sauce recipe and browsed a bit. I bought some veggies, apples and lemons. I did make one impulse buy: a beautiful bunch of beets.  I had just enough time to take my stuff home, make a quick sandwich, wolf it down and then head back to work.

The walk in the afternoon was even more uncomfortable.

Back home after work, I talked briefly with Jake about the bike. I had noticed the Impatiens were drooping when I drove in. So, next, I watered all the container plants. Then I watered the new grass. I gratefully went back inside and started the Wednesday wash. I also fired up the dishwasher as the dirty plate from lunch just about filled it up.

I finally got around to hooking up the VCR. I did get it to play, so I know I got that right. Next will be to see if it can record, some other time.

I hung the pants and shirts and then folded the rest. It was already 7:30, so I started dinner. I warmed up the last pork chop. For my side dish, I chopped the beet greens and then dropped them into boiling water. I served them with a good splash of white vinegar on top (just like my Mother did).

Both were excellent! I had to force myself to put the rest of the beet greens in the fridge, rather than eating them, LOL!

Then I finally cut open my DVD of the movie, Vanishing Point. And watched it!!!

I went to bed before 11:00.
