My doctor told me to eat only whole fat products because I had lost so much weight and should not lose any more. I had already gotten real butter and today I also got enough whole fat yoghurt to last me the rest of the week. After I had put all the groceries away, I immediately had some for lunch and I have to tell you that it tasted wonderful and that it agreed with my stomach very well.
I had become so used to how thin low fat yoghurt was, that I was surprised at how thick the whole fat kind was when I poured it into the bowl. And it tasted much creamier too. It was almost, well, almost, like eating a dish of ice cream. I had to tell myself not to eat more and to only have a certain amount every day so I can make it last for the rest of the week. It certainly is tempting to have around.
It started to snow after I got back from doing the groceries, so my timing was excellent. I had not slipped on the ice either, even though there had been treacherous patches in places. I bought Tyke anotther huge rawhide bone and when I walked in, I told him that I had something for him, which he understood. He did not stop running around in circles until I unwrapped it and gave it to him.
I forgot to get candy mice for Gandhi because I was so busy looking for a flea collar for her. I saw a flea on her the other day and I want to prevent her from contaminating Tyke. She does roam around the neighborhood and pick things up from other cats.
I am enjoying the fact that it is Saturday, which is really, I think, my favorite day of the week. I really always do have that idea that it is a day off to spend as I please, but I always end up doing chores such as the laundry or the dishes or the groceries. Still, I feel an enormous sense of freedom on Saturday. I suppose throughout my whole life it has been the day that I liked best. Even when I was in kindergarten and I still had to go to school in the morning on Saturdays.
I remember my father having to go to work on Saturdays when there was still a six day work week. Sunday was the only day of leisure and even then, you weren't allowed to enjoy yourself a heck of a lot. There were all these laws and unwriiten rules that you had to keep to. We certainly have better and easier lives now. If there is one thing I am not, that is nostalgic. For me there are no good old days and I really and truly do not believe that anyone would want them back.
I have to go hang up a load of freshly washed clothes.I can not hang them up outside because of the snow. Tomorrow a low depression system will be here and it will rain. I do wonder how long it will take for the snow and the ice to be gone. I can not wait to see the sidewalks again.
