This is a non-sequitor. Who out there does not love his/her iPhone? Pretty much forced into buying one several years ago (2009?) in Houston, when I lost my charger (or rather, couldn't find it) on a trip -- it was the least expensive alternative at the AT&T store in Houston (my flip phone was so old they didn't make a charger for it any more, OF COURSE) -- I bought the iPhone 3, kicking and screaming, for $99. After my husband died in 2011, I traded it for an iPhone 4, which I still have. No need for Siri or a higher resolution camera - I am happy. Not ready to trade up at this point, but you never know. I am rather wedded to the charger for my old iPhone and highly resent having to deal with the new one. Bah!
Last weekend at the farmer's market I spotted this odd looking vegetable. I forget what it was, but it doesn't matter because I didn't buy it. Can anybody identify this?
Ok, now that I am past that -- on to this week. I have been walking every day - sometimes more, sometimes less. Watching what I eat (except today and I don't care) and we shall see whether I become 20 years younger and svelter in a few months. Do not hold your breath, o dear readers. I am not holding mine. But exercise can't hurt.
Today started as an ordinary day. Paid bills,went for a walk around the complex that burned enough calories for me to have a Ritz cracker and still come out even;spent 2 hours sorting out my mother's financial mess. As I was almost home, my daughter Hilary called to say she was at her friend (since 3rd grade) Jen's house and they invited me over to hang out in the driveway in lawn chairs
We sat in the drieway drinking Prosecco to celebrate, and had the best time!!
Ya know - there are some people that it doesn't matter how many years go by, you pick up where you left off and it is wonderful. Here we are in Jennifer's driveway, having the best time! Jennifer's father took the photo.
l-R Lois (Jennifer's' mother), Jennifer, my daughter Hilary (in sunglasses)and her mother. cheers! It was great, even though I didn't have my makeup on and was slouching.
So now, here I am at home, late - awake, happy, relaxed, and looking forward to the weekend and whatever it will bring. Tomorrow, another day at home dealing with THE STUFF, packing for my trip to San Francisco (yay!) and hoping the cool/dry/perfect walking weather will hold. I love the tank of autumn in the air while the trees are still green. Do you?
