It’s Mehl-ting!

Today has been a pretty awesome day.

First of all… the heat wave has arrived!! Never before has mid-30 degree weather excited me so much. The sun was out in full force, along with beautiful blue skies, which helped melt a lot of the snow around the farm today. Hooray! The driveway is still pretty well coated, but I’m thinking tomorrow’s gorgeous weather should take care of it :)

A trip to church with my neighbor ended my housebound snow days. It was nice to get out finally, and meet some new people. Church was good, if a little more traditional than I’m used to. Lunch afterwards at Olive Garden with my neighbor and 2 “old maid” sisters of the church. They’re 87 and 95 years old and live together. One of them was UT’s first baton twirler, and knew my grandfather back when he “was a real looker”. We had a great lunch – it’s been so long since I’ve had those breadsticks – and brought leftovers home for dinner later this week.

This afternoon was good for finishing up some chores. I debated between chores and a nap, but chores won :)

I got all the Christmas stuff put up in the attic (except for the naked Christmas tree which will require the assistance of The Boy to make its way to the attic), and the carpets/rugs vacuumed. Then Sheff and I made a trip into town to take in the recycles and stop by the library and PetSmart.

At the library I picked up some workout DVDs (so now I have no excuse… gym or no gym I will workout!) and cookbooks.

Oh and then PetSmart adventures began…. I took Sheff there to get his nails done and refill his food supply. Long story short, he released his anal gland on the dog salon workers (sorry guys!) and snarled at everyone in the check-out line. Poor buddy… too much for his anxious self to handle. In consolation he did get a squeak hot dog toy to take home. Now he’s curled up on the couch with me, looking quite pleased with himself :)

Lazy Sunday evening for me now. Time to crack open the Sunday paper, clip coupons and peruse the ads. And if I ever get hungry again, after eating 4 OG breadsticks and 1/2 of my baked ziti, I might consider some dinner.

Night!
