I slept another full 8 hours, & because it was Saturday I let myself drowse for an extra hour. SOOOOOooooooooo delicious! I'm very thankful.
I had errands to do today. I live in a very "walkable" neighborhood (on a Google "walkability" scale it scores 88 out of 100), & the things I had to do were all within walking distance. So, as I often do on Saturdays in good weather, I combined my exercise with errands. I have a shoulder-sling bag that has a compartment for my keys, reading glasses, cash, debit card, ID & other small items, & a larger zipped area to carry purchases or books. I put a smallish tote in it for groceries.
Jogged down to CVS, bought several things, which all fit in the sling bag. Then I jogged to the grocery store (making a bit of commotion because I had two glucosamine-tablet containers in the sling bouncing/rattling as I ran).
I wanted to buy yeast. Couldn't find it in the aisle with flour, sugar, spices; an employee directed me to aisle 7. There I could see more baking supplies--but they were all in an Eastern European language! That's the kind of neighborhood I live in--I love it. Fortunately as I was puzzling over the items, a woman started browsing items in that section, & I asked for help. She pointed me to the cute little individual yeast packets. Turns out they come from Bosnia-Herzegovinia! I love it. And I think it's hilarious that the store carries Bosnian yeast but not Fleischmann's or Red Star. :-)
I also bought a few more items. Now I was weighed down a bit too much to continue jogging, so I walked home at a fast pace. I've spent a good part of the afternoon baking rolls to take to a dinner party tonight--& I also made yogurt, for the first time in many years! I really hope it sets.
