Havent blogged in a few days.
Last night I was invited out to dinner by a good friend, and we went to the chinese buffet.
I had a nice salad and was hoping for some sushi, there was no sushi.
But I enjoyed some coconut chicken and orange chicken and all the other kinds of chicken.
I only had one small potato and one small nearly bite size piece of cake, peanut butter.
Mostly I stuck to the meats, two spareribs on a stick.
I guess this food was high in salt content or something, because the back of my mouth, past the gum in the main back, has been so sore, raw, painful even.
But it was worth it, I would walk back there today for some more of that coconut chicken!!
and even though I said I wasnt going to, I did drink 1 beer.
After dinner we went to a neighbors house where they had a backyard bonfire going and drinking beer, I had one, out of courtesy to the host.
I am glad I didnt have more.
So yesterday I went to the park, even though it was somewhat windy, I decided it was way too pretty out to waste the day and not walk.
The park was full of people, more than I have seen there.
Walking was great, until this one group of younger women walkers showed up.
Maybe I am just not used to sharing the track with so many people, but, these girls, ranging in age from maybe 14 to early 20s, dressed in cowboy boots, tight jeans and flip flops and not walking, but more like strolling.
I was courteous and stepped to the side when they strolled around, but the perfume was so overwhelming, I had to go sit down and allow them to go on around and get way ahead of me.
Maybe all of them were wearing perfumes that we co-mingling and making the stink, or one of them had on a ton of the most cheap, P U stinking perfume I have smelled.
And there I am, the wind blowing it back on me, and me trying to breathe as it was, had to stop and get tissues out of my car to blow my nose.
But I got my one hour walk in and enjoyed the sun.
At about 40 minutes the wind got more intense and I thought maybe I would stop.
But I pushed on, and it actually felt kind of good, I just kept reminding myself, shorts weather is only weeks away.
My shirts are all too tight.
I havent seen a big loss on the scale in a long time.
Then I came home and tanned and my friend had texted me wanting to go out to eat.
I had planned to fix an omelet as I was home alone last night, but was glad to get the invite, I really needed a night out of the house.
There was a young man at the bonfire playing the guitar and telling jokes and it was a really nice evening.
Took my mind off of alot.
Now, today is Sunday and its walking dead night.
and once again, the sun has hidden and gone way off to some other town. the sky is gray and cloudy and its cold outside.
Snow??? So I have heard.
This has been one long winter.
