Good 54º clear sunny morning. Don't know the high temp yesterday, somewhere around 85º.
I was looking up at the mountain and I remember when we first moved here... that tree with the crooked top was totally all visible. 18 years changes a lot!
And up in my pasture these trees were only about 1 foot tall.....
Yesterday was annual doc checkup with my cardiologist, Dr. Brian, and then a blood draw at my GP's, Dr. Rachael, and then Costco! Well, got a call from the doc's office, he had forgotten about an appointment he had with his doctor so had to cancel mine. Reset for later..... I decided I needed to go to Costco so went.
Crowded! I got my fav things ... fresh mozzarella balls, fresh raspberries ($3 cheaper than Safeway!) veggie cakes, organic chicken stock, lemon juice, BF Mayo (only $7 for the GIANT jar & there was a $2 off coupon!)
baked super crispy rice crackers, Hass avocados (4 for $5, a California grown avocado www.missionpro.com ), and Ocean Mist artichokes (the VERY best, from Castroville Ca and only $5.99 for 4......
To keep the artichokes fresh, cut off the very end of the stem and put in water until ready to cook. Also picked up an Asian Chicken Wrap from the meat department.
I came out of the ladies room and there was a women sitting on a bench there and coughing something awful. I stopped and asked if she was OK. She waved me off. I said would some water help? Another lady came up and was concerned too and she put some money in a vending machine right there and got a water.
It was $1.50 and I gave her a dollar. She didn't want to take it, but I stuck it in her purse. The coughing lady got better and sipped the water. Whew.
Came home, unloaded the car, and enjoyed a wrap with some mozzarella and a glass of wine....
