Thursday--today--I walked in short bursts that totalled about two or more miles. My first short burst ended with me going to a drug store as I realized that my new shoes needed new insoles or they'd leave me crying in the street. Given my past history with shoes, I was prepared for that possibility, so that wasn't a real problem. Meeting someone in the store who I know from the Thursday farmers' market was amusing--at least, we were both amused later when we were actually at the farmers' market and a farmer asked us if we'd met before.
Today was a beautiful day for being outdoors, with high temperatures somewhere in the low 60s, mostly blue skies, some fall color left in the trees, and the scent of woodsmoke and decaying leaves in the air.
Anyway, after running various errand-type things, I did end up at the farmers' market, where I made myself useful to a few vendors, then stocked up on plenty of fresh foods. I bought two kinds of apple--Stayman (because I love them) and Arkansas black (because I'd never had them before). With a couple of winter squashes, two different varieties of green leafy veggies, and some ground lamb, I've added enough nutritious food to my section of the fridge not to feel guilty about the fact that I also bought a chocolate chip cookie and seriously considered some ice cream.
After the market, I spent a few pleasant hours hanging out with folks and having good conversation of the partly serious/largely silly variety. Because I went to bed too late the last two nights and because it is now after eleven p.m. my time, I am rapidly losing the ability to form sentences. Good night, all!
