Weekend Update

I woke up at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday. It was cold (so what else is new?)

Sidebar: I always seem to bitch about the temperature here. But, when I was down for Christmas, Jake added an app to my phone that tells me the weather in Redford, Michigan, Columbia, South Carolina (Jake and Carla) and Minneapolis, Minnesota (Amy and her Carls). So, now, when I’m upset about the cold, I check on Amy’s and feel ashamed.

I got shaved and showered and dressed and then left for my much-needed haircut. From there I went to Kroger’s and stocked up on protein: pork loin, chicken breast, ground chuck, even little smokies and some thick-cut bologna!

Next was Westborn for veggies and cheeses. I talked with the cheese guy (always a mistake) and he kept cutting off chunks of cheese for me to try. I ended up buying some Plava (a 12-month old Italian cheese) and Westborn’s Mediterranean Sunset which has Kalamata olives and sun-dried tomatoes.

I dropped everything at the house and then left immediately for my 12:00 p.m. dentist appointment. On the way back, I saw a car wash on Ford Road. So, I got the truck washed. It didn’t stay clean long, but I was able to put my license tab on.

I got home and changed clothes. Then I decided to take a nap. That was a mistake, by the way.

When I woke up, I made a bologna sandwich for my dinner. I watched some TV and then switched to reading. I tried to go to bed, but couldn’t fall asleep. It kept getting later and later and was very frustrating!

I finally fell asleep around 5:00 a.m. and slept until almost 2:00 p.m.! No way could I load up the computer table, drive to Marine City, then drive to Port Huron and get back home before dark! Shit!

So, I decided to stay home. I opened a can of crescent rolls and the smokies and baked them into Sunday snacks. I plated them with some of the Dusseldorf mustard.

I watched several of the “Building Alaska” shows. Then I switched to reading until I fell asleep at 1:00 a.m.


  1. You may have just nailed Sunday! You made snacks and said to hell with it. Sounds about right!

  2. I'm working on it. I really am!!!
