The chicken's in the oven and the chili's on the stove.
Was over at Starbucks earlier. Had two cups of coffee and an egg salad sandwich, the crusts of which I shared with the sparrows. I was reading about the gay Greek poet C. P. Cavafy and also a short story by Tessa Hadley.
I have to go to the store but will wait till 9:00. Then do some laundry after that.
Enjoyed my day off, as nerve-wracking as it was earlier. The vet's bill was $106. That's another nerve-wracking aspect to it: wondering how much it's going to cost, and you know it's going to be over $100 nowadays.
[Later] Back from the store and the laundry's in the washers. Chicken and chili turned out great. Shared some white meat with Bootsy (no BBQ sauce for him). I bake it in a slow oven and it comes out tender. This was that 79 cents/lb. whole chicken. Such a deal!
Checked the mail. Today I got a form letter from Home Depot asking me to participate in an online survey regarding my kitchen installation. I can't wait to take it. Boy are they going to get an earful! (They're not even finished here yet.) I think I first talked to the Home Depot kitchen designer last April to have her prepare estimates (I could look it up). I know I signed the contract at the beginning of May.
