Today was as busy as yesterday, but I did it alone. I went to the landfill, the post office, the pharmacy and the grocery. At the first one, I dropped lots of recyclables, and at the other three, I dropped copious amounts of moolah. The grocery brags in advertising about how it is lowering thousands of prices, but so far, my checkbook isn't seeing much difference.
In preparation for Hurricane Irene, which I devoutly hope is a non-event for central NC, I brought into the house most of the small items from the deck, and pulled all the chairs and tables up close to the house. The weather people are saying that the storm will veer to the east and that our area will only get rain and some wind - but that could change. If it does, all the furniture will be carried to the garage. I sure hope I don't have to do that. My back already hurts from dragging it around the deck, and I have to work for the next three days!
Our daughter who lives in this area invited us to dinner tonight. She has either the best luck in picking out steaks or the best grill in the world - but dinner was excellent - as usual. NY strips, mashed red-skin potatoes and spinach salad - yummy! Dessert was fresh-baked chocolate cookies. Then I got to watch TV on her giant screen. NOVA had a program on fractals, which I don't in the least understand, but am nevertheless fascinated by!Check out some of the images here.
