I had gone there yesterday intending to look for Endust in the section with cleaning supplies. I knew exactly where that has always been, so I went directly to it to find it had been moved. I don't mind asking for help when I need it, but when I walked in that door I didn't think I needed to know where cleaning supplies were.
So just a little bit aggravated that they had moved it, I moved on to where I had always found tarps. I want to cut a footprint for my new tent from a tarp - again, the tarps weren't where they have always been. I was just a little put out about it so I left the store.
This morning I returned, asked the greeter at the front entrance where I could find cleaning supplies as well as tarps - no Endust but I did pick up a medium weight tarp. I think it will be on the heavy side if I decide to do any backpacking, so I'll probably use it for something else and see if I can get a lighter version. What I'd like to do is to pick up some ends of Tyvek, although it makes an annoying crinkly noise. Some backpackers actually launder it (plain water only) to get rid of the noise and make it softer, but I wouldn't go that far.
I'm making another pot of split pea soup this afternoon so I won't have a half-full package of peas hanging around getting lost in the back of the cabinet. It smells pretty good while cooking.
Yesterday I almost worried myself because I couldn't get full. I was munching on something all day long. I don't notice any beautiful fat cells forming except on my belly, where I'd rather not have them!
When I was at the checkout at Home Depot, the man behind the counter commented on my tarp and asked what I was going to use it for. He was interested in hearing about my backpacking plans, which started a discussion of where I was going and "Are you gonna be carrying a gun?" Nope, I responded, good lord I'd probably shoot myself in the foot!
I think we will go to the gym tonight, and Donald is going back for the first time since he had to have his leg (ACL) re-operated on. I just hope the young boys and the beautiful girls went yesterday.
Last night I photographed my new Fila's (they have the bright blue trim), and also took a picture with one of the Trail Hikers I ordered. I again tried both shoes on, fiddling around with the way I tied them to see if they still hurt my ankle. They do. I wonder if the ankle bone is more prominent because of the weight loss, but I can't follow that thought to a conclusion as to whether it will get any better when I gain back the weight. So I am just going to return them and never try to buy anything online again.
