Daughter Shirley and I love to eat out. Before Covid she had a blog that featured our 'eating out'.
We all know what Covid did to us. Kept us inside. Shirley and I are venturing out more now so let me tell you what we did Monday.
We decided we needed lunch at Amici's in downtown Suffolk. But, just before we hit downtown we have a railroad crossing to go over.
And, wouldn't you know it!!! A freight train was stopped blocking our only entry into the area we needed to go.
We sat there almost 40 minutes!
When we did get to Amici's it was CLOSED!!
Well, durn. Now what????
I knew that in the next block there were some eateries. I live here. Shirley's not as familiar with what's where, as I am. So, I suggested we go check out one of those.
Oh, my word. I'd been to The General Public once before. Grandson Chris took me and I said I would go back often and just didn't. Do you hate to eat alone? I don't mind once I get seated but it's the getting there that holds me back. Just something about walking into a restaurant alone feels weird to me.
So, we girls sat and chatted while we waited on our order to arrive. She got a Cobb Salad and I swear, it was HUGE! It must have been fabulous 'cause she ate almost all of it.

I was prowling around in my book case yesterday and found a book that I had bought ages ago. It had gotten lost in the shuffle, back behind a bunch of stuff!!
It's "Secrets of Longevity" by Dr. Mao Shing Ni and it's chockful of simple and easy to follow suggestions on how to live much longer. The subtitle is "Hundreds of Ways to Live to Be 100". My grandmother lived to be 100. My sister is following along in her footsteps at 96. So, yes, if I am healthy, I wouldn't mind living to celebrate my 100th birthday.

I have always loved to read!
Since I am alone, I find myself reading much more voraciously.
So naturally, I was excited to find out that our apartment complex had been gifted a 'little library'. It was painted by one of our residents and placed in our courtyard for easy access.
We have a small library room but it is on the 3rd floor, you need a code to open the door and it just isn't very inviting.. But, this is such fun and in the flow of traffic.

It was cloudy this morning when I got up. I pulled some clothes on and went out on my balcony to enjoy a bit of fresh (cooler) air. Man, it's been hot here.
I saw a bird swimming on the pond. Then I saw another. A pair of Double-crested Cormorants and one of them had a fish in it's beak. I don't know how long I watched that bird swim around with that fish dangling. Does anyone know why a bird wouldn't just gobble down their breakfast? It just seemed strange to me.
