Yesterday I just had to rest. I have been running so much that I am exhausted. I'm glad I have a doctor's appointment next week because I have a feeling my thyroid medication needs tweaking again. I am tired all the time.
On Monday I slept the entire day. The only time I got up was when my friend Krystal called and asked if I wanted to go to a late lunch with her. We went to East Coast Wings and had a great meal. As usual! After I dropped her off I went back to sleep and slept right through until the next morning.
Tuesday I was very late to Bible study. The ladies were about to get up and leave as I walked in. So we did just part of the lesson and will finish it next week.
I was glad I didn't have anything else I had to do that day. So I decided since I had some energy in the afternoon I would cut the grass. It was very high! I moved the furniture all around and got the yard 3/4 of the way done before I ran out of weed whacker cord. What I did looks nice.
Yesterday Joe had to go to the post office. So I took him and then we headed to Home Depot to get more cord so I could finish the yard. What we FINALLY found (hidden in a corner on the bottom shelf) was not only the cord, but it was on a new spool all wound and ready to just pop into the spot and go on. YAY! We got too spools. They were only around $7. I am so happy because I thought I would have to get the line, cut it, wind it on the spool, get it lined up with the holes, etc. I have done that before and it's not fun. This will be so easy.
We were both hungry, so we headed to the new Royal Farms which just opened two days ago. We have been watching it be built for the past year or so. Royal Farms is a convenience store chain based in Baltimore. They are all over Maryland and Delaware and a few in Pennsylvania but this is the first one in Philadelphia.
I wish I had taken pictures, but I felt funny about it. It was crowded. And of course being brand new it was clean as could be. They are known for their fried chicken so I got a 3 piece container that came with fries (they call them Western fries and they are HUGE) and a roll. Joe got a double bacon cheeseburger that also came with fries. My portion was so large I couldn't eat it all. We also got a couple of Krispy Kreme donuts. Since Krispy Kreme left Philadelphia a few years ago, I haven't seen them. And Joe bought a bag of sugar cookies for Bible study. They were wonderful and tasted like homemade. They were a brand I had never heard of -- Otterbein's. Apparently they are also from Baltimore. They even have a little eating area in a corner. We were very happy and I have a feeling this is my new go-to store. I just wish it had been open when I was still working. I would have been there every lunch.
Here are a couple of pictures I found on Google.
This looks like Joe picking up his meal (but it's not).
Oh, yes, they also have a gas station with very reasonable prices and a car wash. This is one happy girl.
So now I have to run. The new cleaning lady is coming in about 15 minutes and I haven't even had breakfast. Talk to you all later and have a good day.
