I am really liking this feeling better! So much so that I even impressed myself with some fore thought which has been missing for a while. I used to always plan ahead sorta on my meals so I wouldn't draw a complete blank on any given day.
As I was still feeling pretty good yesterday til time for me and Jerrell to go to the grocery store, I had already conjured up in my mind several meals to carry us through the weekend and have happy leftovers on Monday. Now that I like!. Bring in- or go out- is our breakfast routine since I have been out of work, specially on Saturdays and now on Fridays too when Jerrell is home, which is becoming most every Friday now. Pickings of places is another story. We decided this morning to go back to an old joint we used to go to, drive all the way up there and they were standing in line. Nope, not today. We head back to town and hit a spot we ain't been in a while, find the one empty booth and down we sit. These booths are not for long legged folks like me. Welp the pedestal holding the table top you gotta straddle. Welp Jerrell dunning done that and there I am with no where to put my feet. I head to the right with one and kick Jerrell's left foot so I tuckem up under me, under my seat,but for restless legs that weren't gonna work. I kid you not, I got my foot hung tween the pedestal pole and the bench part and had to literally pull it out. We will not be going back there no more. We had ordered the special for today which was one scrambled egg, bacon and one cold pancake and a side order of toast cause Jerrell cannot or will not eat without bread.
All week, it is has been either cold, damp or rainy, so we love chili beans and according to what I thought- it was spose to be cool today and chili beans just sounded awful good to both of us. I get the necessary stuffsss for both chili beans or spaghetti as we was torn tween the two. Chili beans won out. Sooo we get up this morning, a simply beautiful day and here I sit in my t-shirt and shorts after just sheding my long pants and sweatshirt. We will eat the chili beans with some good ole garlic toast and most likely sweat a few bullets, but so be it. I also gotta pot of stew beef cooking for tomorrow, so we won't be lacking on no leftovers.
I just went to check my stew beef cause just about one more time of burning it would make for a really bad day. I noticed Jerrell is asleep in his recliner and his Saturday sidekick Roxy all laid out asleep too. Oh the good life, boy am I thankful for it. My brother called me a little bit ago and we got caught up on all the news and I feel better just hearing from him. I just might drag out my plastic punkin and put it on the porch so as folks won't know for a fact that I am a Halloween scrooge. One problem. I forget where it is. Oh well.
Enjoy your day folks and if its cold where you are, just think about us eating good ole chili beans.
