Worn out on Saturday

I got up very early this morning to go walking with Jeannie, but it turned out she was later than expected. The baby woke up before she could slip away, so we had company. Arianna is the cutest little girl with an absolutely sunny disposition, so it was fun having her slong. We walked for an hour, which I know is good for me, but which really wears me out.

Then it was a trip to Target where I bought an inexpensive hand mixer. I haven't had or needed one for years, but I want to do some baking so I went ahead and got an inexpensive one. Also bought a toaster on sale - I have a big toaster oven that drives me nuts because it allows eggos to curl and slip down into the oven compartment as they thaw. If I can get them out intact, they are curled up like a taco shell!

A few other stops plus a trip to the grocery rounded out the day. Now I have to stay awake long enough to get the required eyedrops into my eyes. It is still daylight but I would love to go crawl into bed. Jeannie and Donald are having a bbq tomorrow, but I will have the entire morning to just fool around, and maybe Lady will let me sleep a few extra minutes. (Yeah, right)

I had several suggestions in response to my complaint about CA pharmacies, that I could get prescriptions by mail. I have always used a local pharmacy where one was available, and I don't even care for the ones at the supermarkets or discount stores. My local pharmacy when I lived in Asheville had no turnover of personnel for the entire 5 years I lived there, and they always recognized me when I walked in the door. I know that is not the usual way of doing business these days, but I'm old enough that I don't have to change - at least without kicking and screaming about it. I try always to support locally owned businesses, and knowing and trusting your pharmacist (as well as your auto mechanic) is comforting. Some day I may find a locally owned pharmacist here in Sacramento, and I might switch if I do.


  1. Enjoy your family barbecue this afternoon - and eat lots! I agree with you too about trying to get a local pharmacist to do business with. To me, its a little more comforting than getting prescriptions by mail. I still drive down to Victoria for prescriptions from the pharmacy I dealt with when I worked there over 10 years ago!

  2. I guess I missed the news about you going to Lassen. Are you volunteering? I know you really enjoyed it at your previous parks. I hope you have a great time there.
