I had an early, relaxing Friday night. I did my yoga every day. I ate healthily. I went to the Farmer’s Market. I slept like a dead person every night. I shopped at Trader Joe’s. I walked the dog each morning, ate Louisiana strawberries and took time to read. I visited with a couple of really good friends virtually and even visited my sister in Cottonport today. As weekends go, I loved it. I had everything I needed.
I did have one complaint. I bought a fresh chicken at the Farmer’s Market yesterday. I paid almost $15 for it, and I roasted it. I usually have good luck roasting chickens, but this one turned out tough. I’m not sure if I cooked it wrong or the bird was tough, but I was very disappointed. I really don’t cook meat much, so when I buy it, it’s a splurge. Today I took it out of the refrigerator and chopped up the breast to make chicken salad. Hopefully the mayo and greek yogurt will tenderize it a little. It’s a head start on lunch tomorrow with a container full of strawberries for dessert.
I went with my sister today to her school’s production of Guys and Dolls. I’d never seen it, and it was a really wonderful production. I couldn’t believe the performers were high school students. They were very good. The costumes were amazing. There’s a song toward the end where the two lead actresses sing about their marrying their beaus. One character has been engaged for 14 years to her fiancee, and he won’t marry her. The other one is not so sure she wants to marry a gambler. The song details their conversation where they decide that the best course of action is to go ahead and marry them and try to change them later. It was a really funny song, but I found myself getting really irritated. I had to restrain myself from jumping out of my seat and screaming THIS IS BS!!!! HE WON”T CHANGE!!! I realized this was a theater production, and it wasn’t meant to be a lesson in life, but it still irked me just the same. I hate the messages we get from songs and the movies about love and relationships.
Marry the Man Today
I got a chance on the ride over to listen to Bobby Bone’s Top Thirty country countdown. The Louisiana countryside sped by while I listened to interviews and some of my current favorite songs. I have a short vacation coming up this week, and I spent some time thinking about it. I’ll be visiting some of my old pals in St. Joseph MI. When the weather forecast came on, and the meteorologist said it was going to reach 90 today, I sucked in my breath. Oh no … here we go. I pulled up St. Joe’s weather forecast on my phone. The temp was 46 and sunny. Ahhhhh…….. I’m trying not to think about it, but the truth is the thought of summer here is starting to weigh heavily on my mind. But, I won’t think about that today. I’ll think about that tomorrow. After all … tomorrow IS another day.
Have a good week, y’all.
