I stepped out the door to a cool morning but the air was thick. As I walked my skin was cool but I was sweating at the same time. By the time I got home the sun was out and I was just plain HOT! I walked around the lake which is always nice. Saw a few walker friends that I haven't seen for a while and lots of other people. The lake had a low mist over it and the sky at first was gray with the sun trying to come out. There were a lot of rabbits eating along the side of the paths. Most of them hop into the tall grass as I walk by but one let me take his picture. I heard a few mosquitoes buzzing around my head and thought I had escaped being bitten when my ankle started to itch. I walked 6.7 miles and it sure was nice to come home to an air conditioned house!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finished reading Private by James Patterson yesterday. It was pretty good. I have his next book on hold at the library and just got a notice saying it is there for me to pick it up. I think I'm going to wait a few days before picking it up. Give me a chance to finish reading another book.
I did my usual morning routine, then did my chores around the house for the day. Those chores took me longer than expected and I didn't have much time left to do the fun stuff during the day. But I did get to read for a little while before Ken came home from work.
We were in the mood for Reuben sandwiches for supper so we went to The Green Turtle and were both disappointed. The sandwiches were kind of dry and the service was not so great either. We should have went to Ram's Head, they have really good Reuben's.
There is a new store that has been opened for a few months now in our area called hhgregg which sells appliances and electronics. We had never heard of them before and went to check it out. I will not be going there ever again. As soon as we walked in the door we were practically attacked by the sales people. Even after we said we were just looking around a salesman still followed us around talking non stop. We had to be almost rude to him before he finally left us alone. I really dislike stores like that.
Another new store will be opening here soon called Hobby Lobby. I never heard of that either but it is what it sounds like, a hobby store. I am looking forward to when it opens. It will be another store like Michael's or Joann's. Makes me wonder which store will outlast the others. My guess is that Michael's is the first to go.
Not sure what my snack will be tonight. Maybe watermelon or maybe chocolate chip cookies. Just a few cookies left. I'll be baking cookies in the next day or so.
That's about it for today.
I hope your Monday was better than you expected it to be.
What makes us discontented with our condition
is the absurdly exaggerated idea
we have of the happiness of others.
