It's a cool and very
rainy day today. I went for a short trip out to pick up a few groceries that I forgot the other day and to get a lovely loaf of bread from Paris Baguette
. My favorite varieties are their multigrain and the pumpkin with black sesame that I picked up this morning
I've gotten into the whole "avocado toast" craze, which wasn't a stretch since I've always been a big fan of avocados for breakfast, adding them to omelets and such. I saw the stupidest things on the news yesterday that there are some people trying to lobby for a warning label to be put on avocados
because dopes aren't being careful when trying to cut them and are stabbing their hands. Give me a break. I've never heard of a call for a warning label on bagels (yeah, have sliced my hands a few times) or butternut squash, or pineapples.
Anyway, it was a rather foolish choice to go out today. I walked out of the first of three places I'd planned to stop and promptly dropped my umbrella and broke it so that it wouldn't close. Then I found that I parked in a spot where I'd have to step in a trouser-hem-deep puddle to get to the driver's side door. I was a soggy mess when I got home.
My downstairs neighbors are moving out today and I would've gone down to wish them well but it looked like they were struggling enough with the rain and moving furniture. Poor things. Besides, I did get to run into Natalie yesterday who was about ready to pack the kitties up to move them. This morning she texted me a sweet picture of kittyboy Miles enjoying their new sliding door. I'll text her in a couple of weeks and see when she's around campus if she wants to get lunch or something.
Once I got dried off, the rain did its work of lulling me into a nap. The kitties have been out cold most of the day. Rainy cool days are the best for napping. I'm not looking forward to next week's weather. After a stretch of below-average temperatures which I was just fine with, it's supposed to suddenly jump to near 90 by mid week. Sheesh. I mean I know summer has to come but could there at least be a gradual introduction?
Suffice it to say, I got some ham to go with the bread and some other frozen meals and toss-together stuff for the nasty days since I don't want to heat up the apartment by cooking much.
