It was so cold this morning I even wore my gloves, but they didn't last too long while trying to make my purchases at the farmers' mkt. I didn't buy much but did get a lot of two different kinds of potatoes, plus some kale and zucchini. I can't stand the foods that I can manage with no vegetables, and I'm not going to blend them to a pulp. The chopped kale last week worked very well in my potatoes, and I even added some to a fried egg.
From there I went to the gym where I walked 2.25 miles! That is approx. 4400 steps! Of course my step counter was all off, so I think I will just keep track of treadmill miles and let it go at that for now. I feel so much better when I hit the 2 mile mark - it is even a marked difference between 1.5 and 2 miles!
I then went to the grocery and ended up with some various soups that I can have, and a bag of dark chocolate chips. They are nice to munch on in the evenings. Feeling lucky, I decided to buy a couple of lottery tickets. I have mentioned before that when I do this, my ticket doesn't have a single winning number on it, ever, but this time I thought I would beat the odds. My good spirits are watching over me and would you believe they jammed the machine? It jammed completely with my dollar in it! I retrieved my dollar at the service counter and passed the Salvation Army bucket at the door, so the dollar went into the bucket. Much better odds of winning with the Salvation Army than with a lottery! Do you think I've learned my lesson though? Watch for my blog in about 6 months and I bet within that time I will moan about buying a ticket with no winning numbers! I am really not a gambler and probably don't spend more than $4 a year on it, if that much.
In a recent post of his, Dizzy Dick mentioned playing Mahjongg on the computer. There aren't as many games available for free for the Mac, so I bought a Mahjongg game online for $3. I played a game a few minutes ago and won, and the message printed on the screen said: "Do not gamble, for it will be your downfall." Words of wisdom, for sure!
Now that I think about it, since I downloaded and installed the game on my computer I'm having trouble with a periodic message that the link I wanted had crashed . Usually all I have to do is return to my home screen and try again, and it works. I just now am wondering if there is a connection between the game and the supposed "Crashes" I'm experiencing. I am really sick and tired of dealing with a computer, but dealing with a smart phone would be much worse so I'll try not to complain too much. I watched a local weather station last night on my computer, and one of the meteorologists had her nose stuck in her cell phone for the entire 5 min. or so I watched, and the other one was looking at his computer for info. Is this how the weather is predicted now? I think it's sad, and who wants to watch people on TV giving them information when they can't even be bothered to look at the camera?
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
