Resting my knees

I woke up on Thursday all crippled up, with only one thought in my mind. Why the hell didn't I kneel on a pillow?

It was a little warmer, so I left my gloves at home.

There were off and on snow flurries all day.

When I drove to lunch at Applebee's, I turned at Newburgh and Warren.While I waited at the light, I watched a crane take down the Max & Erma's sign from the building. Sigh...

Now Applebee's has a lunch special with two lists of choices of soup, salad or entree. You get to pick two. One list costs you $6.99 and the other $8.99. But, you can pick one from each for $7.99. So, that's what I did. I got the French onion soup (my favorite) from the expensive list and tried the three cheese chicken and penne pasta from the less expensive list.

The soup was excellent, as always.

Sidebar: Is there any way to eat French onion soup gracefully in public? NO!

But the pasta was a delicious surprise! It was fantastic!!!

I was super busy all afternoon, so it passed quickly.

Back home, I found the bedroom door open (it does that sometimes when it's cold) and that Caley had barfed on the bedspread. Dammit!

So, I cleaned up the mess, treated it with Shout and threw it in the washer. I tried to throw Caley in there, too, but she ran away.

I went out back and refilled the feeders. But I was out of suet, so my little woodpecker friend was out of luck.

I had been crippled up all day so I took the night off.

I ate the last of the tuna and peas for dinner.

My friend B___ called and we talked for a long time (it's been a while). We caught each other up on personal stuff and then mostly talked about politics. That was depressing...

After that, I tried to get interested in a movie, but fell asleep before 9:00 p.m.


  1. "I watched a crane take down the Max & Erma's sign from the building."

    On the plus side, you may get an exciting new lunch spot. That was a prime location.

  2. You know, you're right! I hadn't thought of that. you have such a way to turn my frown upside down...
