It’s windy here! But it’s mostly bad-hair-day windy, not destructive windy, so I don’t mind.
Friday we took Maggie to Home Depot to get a key made. Did you know that there’s a self service machine now to cut keys? It was really cool and very easy. But this is about Maggie. She managed in the ten minutes we were there to collect fan club of young women who worked there. She got treats and tons of pets, and when we were walking out, they were waving to her and calling out, “Bye Maggie.” Because, you know, Wizard and I are invisible, LOLOL!! I’m pretty sure they all fan-girled any friendly dog they saw, but Maggie felt very special.
Saturday I cleaned and did some baking. That evening we went to Turbos. Special K got her red velvet cupcakes, and I froze a few for when my brother-in-law is here for a couple nights at the end of the week. I have no idea if he likes red velvet with cream cheese frosting or not, but it’s a good way to get double duty out of one batch of cupcakes, especially since we’ll be really busy when he’s here. We had fun at Turbo’s house. We played baseball, BBQed hamburgers, then sat around a fire pit and talked. Which led to my throat hurting more than usual on Sunday. But my appointment is in two weeks, and maybe the ENT will have a solution. I can still eat, so that’s good.
Sunday I stopped by to see Biker Witch and her Biker Hubby on my way to Trader Joes. I spent so long at their house talking (more talking! Poor throat!, I ran through Trader Joes really fast, randomly grabbing stuff. I somehow accidently ended up with a bar of dark chocolate in my cart. Oops I didn’t get as many things as I planned, it was too crowded and I was too hungry to make good decisions. Once I got home and had a quick lunch and then I downed healthy helping of dark chocolate. My throat is never too sore for chocolate! Plus dark chocolate has some anti-inflammatory benefits, so it’s actually medicinal…. I can even site my source — the internet! (Okay there are “real” sources including the NIH, but I eat dark chocolate because I like it, not for health benefits).
How was your weekend?
Happy Almost Halloween!
