And I'm looking forward to pizza and Chinese takeout and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. I could have those before but it seemed so silly to have them when gourmet goods wait for me in the freezer. Plus, I needed to make sure the freezer was cleaned out for next time.
For most of the years, Anita has cooked for me, all of the above was true but overshadowed by the value of having delicious meals to eat and fewer trips to the grocery. Gradually the needle moved and now I'm looking forward to meals she'll cook today, I'm even more looking forward to not having to eat them right away and maybe saving them for special. And not having another cook day for a while and, maybe, saving a bit o' coin in the process.
My brother and his wife leave today for a week of leisure and Blue Grass. They are off to a music festival in Jacksonville, FL. They used to live there so will also be seeing old friends. It's just the perfect get away for them. He's built up a good team that can easily handle the business (and their animals) while they are gone. Nice.
In other not news, I'll be swimming at 11. And stopping by the library before then to pick up some stuff on hold.
