Just got back from grocery shopping at Stop&Shop because of the strike at my usual market.

I was pleased to find a bin full of "today" avocados so I bought two and ate one for lunch. Mmmm!

I enjoyed sleeping in this morning and am now sitting here with a decaf latte and some toasted banana bread and fruit salad.

Yesterday was a tough pain day for me and then I had my organic produce order to put away so we plan to have a quiet day at home today. Lots of movies to watch!

I hear ya on the grocery store issue Andy. Arg! Right now I'm listening to the baseball game which is on its last out just ended. After the wrap-up I'll make an Aldis run. Also waiting for a load of laundry to finish so I can flip it into the dryer before I head out the door. What used to be a quick trip for fill-in items is quickly becoming the main outing. I'd do the farmers markets thing, but most of them around here are in the morning. I may be up before noon, but I don't function until the PM.

Keep in mind Katie that each year brings another improvement in surgery and recovery disciplines. I have a friend with two bionic knees, replaced about a year or two apart. She could not believe how much easier the surgery and recovery was on Knee Two. Unless you find out differently, just believe that you'll have an easier time of it than either Glenn or Buck.

When we lived back home in OH I would head to one of the area parks to sit and read, enjoying whoever or whatever came by. Here in MA, not so much. Every time I'm somewhere wooded, including my own back yard, I know I'm going to have to do a thorough tick check to make sure one of those little buggers didn't dig in for the duration.
