Yes, the last of the kids in Philly went back to school today. The kindergartners. The other grades have been back for a few days. Now I know fall is coming. The libraries have even changed back to their fall hours this week.
I taught Bible study this morning. It was on Philippians 4 and was a great study. About how what we think translates into what we do. Having right thinking is so important.
After the study Joe and I were going to pick up my friend, Donna, and go to the Hibachi Grill for lunch and then go to Shop Rite and do our week's shopping. I have friends who do not have a car and so I try to give them a ride to the store now and then so they can get bigger items. But once again Joe is sick during our anniversary week. I should be used to it by now because this time of year he is always sick. He was even sick on our wedding day. Darn those allergies!
So Donna and I went to lunch without Joe. She had never been to the Hibachi Grill and really loved it. I ate so much that I couldn't eat dinner tonight. It's after 9 p.m. and I'm just starting to get hungry after 8 hours. I didn't overeat, but that food just stays with you. I especially love their sushi. I'm such a sushi fan.
I have never made it to each table no matter how many times I've been there because there is just so much to choose from. Maybe next time I should start from the other end.
Then we headed back home and stopped into Shop Rite to do our weekly food shopping. By the time I took Donna home and got home myself it was after 4 p.m. It was a long day. And not at all what I expected it to be.
So now I think I will try to find myself something light to eat and take my medicine. Then it's bed for me. Tomorrow I really must get something around the house done. I still hope to do something special with Joe though. I just haven't figured out what.
