Flip The Switch
In the afternoon, I ventured out to make a "quick trip" to town. Rarely do I go to town for just one item, but I wasn't willing to pay the exorbitant increase for the "convenience" of going no farther than Mt. Aukum. It's a no-win situation: seven minutes in the store and a nearly two-hour round trip versus a ten-dollar savings. The rain had stopped much earlier, but evidently there are those who do not consider the changes on wet mountain roads made slicker by a coating of fallen leaves. Caution signs were out and I (slowly) passed workmen who were repairing downed power lines after a spin out.
Two batches of feta cheese were my only accomplishments for the day and I fell far behind in the points race. Linda is a kind person but while she said nothing, I could hear a touch of gloating in her voice as she totted up her advantage. That's okay, I'm going to flip the switch to "on" today!
