Saturday was a delightful day. I'd decided to run Sunday because there was a good chance of rain sat. There's not much I hate more than getting up for a run & it's raining. I was wide awake at 6:30 but I just laid there listening to the rain & eventually fell asleep.

I folded a load of laundry & unloaded the dishwasher. That's the only productive things I did all day. I read, blogged, read some blogs, had some coffee & napped. Once I woke up it was time to get ready for Mass.

We had plans to watch the LSU game with our usual crew of friends at Caliente. This is just one of the reasons I love that place so much.
Jessica, the owner is experimenting with new items to add to the menu so she brought this over for us to try. She said it's an actual authentic Mexican dish, not tex max like we're used to. It was sooo good! Chile Relleno, stuffed with a ground meat mixture that also had raisins  & it was all sautéed in cognac, topped with a cool sour cream sauce with pecans. DELISH! I love being a regular!!

All I've been hearing about for the last week is a cool front. It's coming they say. I thought it was going to be cool today so I didn't set an alarm I was just going to run when I woke up.
NOT COOL! I was happy about the clouds but that 93% humidity isn't good. It was windy so that was nice but I still came home soaked with sweat. In keeping with the number themes, I ran 5 miles. Yay!

I see lots of things on my runs. Often it's a carcass of some sort, which isn't really fun. There are the assorted beverage bottles. Usually after an away LSU football game & people have had parties. I've even seen the occasional shoe. Today I saw something I've never seen before.
Interesting. Last night was the homecoming dance for one of the big high schools in town that most of the boys go to in my neighborhood. I'm guessing some mom in the hood is wondering what happened to the tie that she paid good money for.

While I was running Dean went to the grocery store. He's the best hubs ever. Although, I am questioning a few of his purchases.
Seriously, he brought Oreos in the house. We've been eating much healthier than we used to. We do not need Oreos!! When I opened the pantry door you can imagine my surprise to not only see the Oreos but there are also 3 bags of chips there. Now I'm really in trouble. I love chips!! This is a prime example of why you don't grocery shop when you're hungry. Dean didn't eat breakfast before he went shopping & he admitted he was hungry.

*Update - It's Monday night & I haven't had a chip nor an Oreo!! Also, the cool front finally made it. It's amazing how much better my hair looks when the humidity is below 60%!



  1. Yep, it sure is getting cold around here, finally, it was so nice today. The chili relent looks really good and spicy...Christine

  2. Today is the first day that we have had a chilly day in months and I'm loving it. Can you believe I have never had a golden oreo? I must put it on my shopping list.

  3. Yep, it's the humidity that's the killer. We're up in the mountains and it's a little chilly in the morning. Hope your humidity goes down soon! I've never had a golden oreo either.
