Bit of change of plans today. The calendar said Glenn and I had appointments with the rheumatologist, so we got up early, washed our faces and combed our hair and drove the hour to the doctor's office.

We arrived a few minutes early and signed in. As I was doing so, the receptionist says, "Your appointments aren't until JULY 25th." Oops. Well we were early, reallllly early.

So since were already in town and we didn't want to waste the trip and being the totally reasonable people we are, we drove immediately to the old-fashioned ice cream parlor and had a decadent and delicious ice cream sundae. Well, what else were we to do?

Oh, well, as long as we were where we were, we took the opportunity to stop at the butcher's and pick up some gorgeous oxtails, a heap of short ribs and two of the most beautiful 1 1/2-inch thick sirloin steaks. Plus....a huge bag of butcher's bones for Harley. Can't leave the dog out!!

Glenn's birthday is this weekend and the sirloin steaks will be just right for his birthday meal.

I'm still feeling a bit dumb about writing the appointment on the wrong calendar page, but we ended up having a lovely "vacation" day just fiddling around and enjoying the time out together.

Now, I have to get back to the real world and empty the clean dishes out of the dishwasher and fold the clothes that are dry on the clothesline.

I really want summer to last as long as possible. I like July 35th. We can borrow days from January and February.

July 35 is kinda like a super leap year. It makes up for time you have lost waiting for doctor appointments. It happens every 5 the year.

Guess my mind is all bollixed up today. No, not the 35th, July 25th. I think I need more ice cream.

That's because six months from today is Christmas and you're worried about finishing your shopping.
