What to do today

I can't decide on what I want to do and it is already nearly lunchtime.  I need to stay home so I won't be tempted to spend money.  The day is looking bright and sunshiny, so it's difficult to stay indoors.

Last night when getting ready for bed I noticed I was wearing my sweat pants backwards, and realized I had walked around the Farmers market like this.  I guess sweat pants must look and feel the same whether you have the drawstrings in front or the label.

This morning's breakfast featured luscious CA grown  strawberries I bought yesterday - a big container of three small plastic ones, each piled high to overflowing with beautiful strawberries - $8 for the whole thing.  I also enjoyed some tasty brussel sprouts with my dinner last night - very small ones (I think smaller veggies are always the tastiest).  

I was looking through some old pictures to decide how many new frames I need to buy, and came across this one.  It's about an 8 x 10 and I scanned it and then rotated the picture, but this is the way it shows up on the blog.  I can't seem to fix it, nor can I remove it from the blog.  I'm sure there is a way but I don't have the patience to look for it.  Sorry about this - 
it was taken during the 1990's in Manitou Springs, CO, and the quality of the scan isn't what I hoped for.  But this is Bad Bill and his Bad Boys - plus his sweet wife, daughter, and granddaughter.  They aren't as sleazy as they look! 

This morning I spent some time reading blogs, down to the ones on the list that I read last night.  I try to read additional blogs later on in the day, but I know that every day I miss a couple.  They just seem to get lost in the spaces between one reading session and another.   I wonder if anyone else has the same problem.


  1. This must be strawberry season. I've had some this weekend from three different stores (bought by me, my daughter and her MIL), and they were all juicy and sweet and very fragrant. I love really sweet berries!

  2. I haven't had strawberries, but I'm on my 2nd and third containers of wonderful blackberries from Costco!!!

  3. I love strawberries! Brussel sprouts, the smaller ones, are very good too. Gypsy, in order to remove the photo, you need to go to your list of posts and click on edit. Once the post opens, click on the photo and there will be a strip of words indicating things you can do to the photo. The far right one will be "remove". You will need to go to the photo where you actually store it. You need to "rotate" the photo there and then add it back to the blog and republish. Hope this helps you.

  4. Tough looking group in that picture. I would want them on my side.

  5. We love Brussel Sprouts. Can you believe these are both girls favorite vegetables? I wish we had markets we could get fresh veggies at. Growing them in snow would be hard though wouldn't it???

  6. Brussel Sprouts were my favorite vegetable when we grew them ourselves and could eat them when they were no bigger than my little finger. But the fresh ones I see in the store these days are so big they aren't sweet at all and taste like cabbages to me.

  7. Funny story about wearing your pants backwards. I'm more likely to walk around with my zipper open. Not sure which is worse.
