I’m not going to deny it. I was lazy today. I rolled over in bed a couple of times before getting up and spent a lot more time over breakfast once I did get up. I even had a rare second sixteen ounce cup of coffee. Once again the laundry didn’t get done today.
When the middle of the afternoon arrived I finally found a little initiative to make a grocery run. If I didn’t, my evening meal choices were limited and not very appealing. The Walmart was very busy with grocery shoppers. Christmas shoppers I could understand, but for some reason I waited in the checkout line behind four other shoppers with full grocery carts. The four other human staffed checkouts were similarly busy.
Food shopping on an empty stomach had the predicted result. I bought stuff I didn’t need and really shouldn’t binge on like Hershey’s Christmas Kisses. A precooked chicken satisfied the day’s lazy pattern and made for a quick meal once I got home. The large crowd turned the simple, less than an hour, trip to the store into a two hour plus exercise. It’s a good thing I went to the store less than a mile away.
The best part of today’s weather was at the end of the day. Most of the day had high thin clouds filtering the sunshine. Enough sun got through to raise the temperature above sixty which is higher than the normal for this time of year. Near nightfall the clouds started to clear but enough remained to the west for a beautiful sunset.
