I got up early (8:10 a.m.) as I could not sleep any more...it was humid and hot. We finally turned on the air conditioner and mom put on a sweater (she has a cold) and all was well. Since I was already up decided an early morning trip to HEB was in order as I have not been able to go to Ciudad Acuna, Coahuila for our monthly grocery run.
Stopped at Stripes to check out their breakfast plates which are only $2.99 daily. Had been eyeing a Stripes coffee mug that will actually fit in my car's cup holder as my $1.00 Dollar Tree mug has given all it is going to give. It sells for $3.99 and the first refill is free.
You might ask yourself "Belinda, I thought you did not like coffee?" Well it is not that I do not like coffee... it does not like ME. It makes me jittery, nervous and short tempered but if I do not drink it on trips out of town...I get very sleepy. I happen to be the sole driver in our household and I do not want to wind up killing us both.
Since I was all peppy decided to go to the laundromat and get that chore over with. It was awfully hot especially since I was driving dad's car (no A/C). It wasn't until this evening that I learned it had reached 100 degrees (38 Celsius). Guess we turned that A/C just in the nick of time.
It is past midnight and I am still jittery from the coffee I drank more than 15 hours ago! See what I mean by coffee not being my friend :-(
As a side note for the readers that prefer to send me e-mails versus leaving a blog comment...I have another change for you. I do not know what the heck I did to my e-mail account email@example.com as I am not able to access it. Until further notice please use firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
