We drove up just as the Saints game was beginning. I forgot I had turned the heat off when we left and we were about 10 miles from home when I remembered and turned it on but it was still 56 in the house when we walked in so we’re both sitting here wearing our jackets.
I did go out and visit with the chickens, Boots and checked on the greenhouse. Everything was perfect . . as expected. My friend does an amazing job with the chickens, the cats and the greenhouse. I’m so lucky she’s willing to help me.
The Louisiana foods are history and we’re back on our diet. We stopped in Jasper, TX this morning at McDonald’s and had keto friendly sausage and eggs. That’s not a bad breakfast when traveling. The price of a side of scrambled eggs varies but we get the $1 sausage muffin and don’t eat the bread. I think it’s $6 for both of us to eat breakfast and Vince got two pieces of sausage and I can’t eat all my eggs so he gets some of those.
Then we stopped at Subway in Crockett, TX. I didn’t even know they had salads but they make HUGE salads. The lady made them, Vince looked at them and said “We should have shared one salad!” I hardly made a dent in mine. Vince ate about half of his.
That salad is as big as it looks! In mine, had spinach, lettuce, green onions, tomatoes, black olives and teriyaki chicken. I think those are about $7 each.
We made great time. Left Lake Charles at 7 this morning and got home about 3:30. Speaking of leaving at 7, Vince had told me yesterday we were going to leave between 7 and 8. In my opinion, that is NOT 7:00. Rita wanted to go out at 5:30 and since you have to go down stairs there to get to the ground level, I tried not to go out any more than I had to with the knee so Vince did all the Rita trips outside . . so he came back inside and it’s about 5:35 a.m. Vince said “Do you mind if I turn the light on?” The light is a ceiling fan with 4 floodlights (or so it seems at 5:35 in the morning). After a few minutes, I said “How long are you going to leave the light on?” I thought he just needed to find something. There are lamps on each side of the bed. He said “I thought you were going to get up!” It’s 5:35 a.m. No . . I am not getting up . . but I did so we got dressed, got the car loaded, spent a few more minutes with my uncle and we were on the road.
I’m going to watch football and knit but if I had to guess, I’d say we’ll be in bed early tonight! It’s been a long day already.
