I’m home again, home again. I wish I could say that the journey back was without another bathroom incident but we all know that history does repeat itself from time to time. Fortunately, the latter incident involved a woman pushing open a stall door that had a flimsy latch. Being inside a larger confined restroom didn’t have the same drama attached to it that potentially exposing myself to an entire restaurant full of diners. Or maybe I’m just getting used to my fanny being exposed to the general public.
I had a most wonderful time visiting with my friends! Hostess KT pulled out all the stops, as usual, and treated us royally. This means, of course, that I ate too much. But it was mostly real food (if we exclude the Double-stuffed Golden Oreos, which were the big splurge of the weekend), so I’m okay with the extra calories. KT had the great idea to have a salad bar with veggies, boiled eggs, and deli meats the first night and we munched on that for lunch the next day in anticipation of going out for Tex-Mex for dinner. I think I’ll follow her lead for my next house party, because it was a nice way to balance tasty, fresh lighter fare with the more indulgent side of dining.
Thanks to the Texas heat, I didn’t get much in the way of my usual exercise, but I did have some play time with this cutie:
This is Emma Abigail, my canine niece, who is growing up fast. Emma and I went for lots of short walks and long periods of me standing in the triple-digit sunshine while she sniffed every blade of grass. It was about all I had the stamina for in that heat!
And now I’m home and off to the doctor for my annual blood work and check-up! No telling what it will show after a travel weekend that involved Oreos.
Wishing you all a most marvelous week! Is it cooling down (or warming up) in your neck of the woods?
