Wednesday Ramble

February brings the rain,
Thaws the frozen lake again.

Good morning everyone, and a wonderful one it is. Had a good night's rest and feeling pretty good. And as soon as I get rid of these morning kinks, I'll be ready to go. It's going to be a rainy day so I've planned on an inside day. Going to do a little painting, reading. A simple day ahead after yesterday. 
Left the house at 9:10 and got back about 11:15. That means I walked over two hours....and believe me I feel it. Remind me not to listen to Ralph anymore. When I told him I was going to stop at the post office first he told me I should go to the one on 57th and 7th rather than my usual because it is closer. Yeah right. First of all it wasn't on 57th at all. It was on 55th, and it was an all uphill trek. Sunset Park is a series of hills. And then when I left, I had an even steeper hill to climb as I headed down to 5th Avenue, the shopping area...although after 6th the hill went into a rather steep incline and it was downhill the rest of the way. Went through a few 99 cent stores, stopped at the Pioneer Supermarket to check it out, then headed over to my usual Met Food. After checking out Pioneer, not going to gripe about Met anymore. At least they have decent meat and produce.
Had I gone to my usual post office it would have been downhill all the way there and home. But, I needed this exercise and I'm not complaining. Just not going to take his advice anymore. LOL!!!

I've even planned a simple meal. Boneless chicken simmered in butter, lemon, and garlic, seasoned with rosemary and freshly ground pepper.. I bought a fresh veggie mix of brocolli, cauliflower and carrots for my side. With weigh in tomorrow, no starch for me. Ralph can have his rice and beans. 
Have a good one.


  1. Sounds like you gave Shank's Mare a good workout!

  2. I find steep downhill climbs harder.
    Well done you.
