You would think I would have slept better last night as it's been a while since I have had top notch rest. Not so. It took me a bit to warm up under my covers. I watched Mansbridge: One On One, which was an in depth interview with Robert Fowler, the UN ambassador I mentioned who was help captive by Al Queda tourists. Next I watched Chopped, a new show where three chefs compete for the best dish using three ingredients. One of the ingredients was Jicama, a vegetable that is said to taste like an apple. I've been dying to try Jicama. I need to find out where it's sold. I watched Top Chef. I was happy to catch the first episode of the new season. It's an addicting series. I caught bits of the movie Message In A Bottle and Dora The Explorer, but thought I best try to sleep.
Today is beautiful. I went to the flea market for the first time. There was all sorts of furniture, cups and old memorabilia to check out. I saw a few chairs I liked and a ceramic bowl to add to Mom's collection. I didn't buy anything, except a Starbucks coffee from down the street. It was small and quiet with friendly service. I'm going home later today for two medical appointments tomorrow. Mom is mad that I'll miss most of a family dinner tonight, but she didn't confirm plans with me. I'll still see everyone and I have enjoyed my quiet day of flying solo. I love days of exploring as much as I do seeing loved ones. If I can have the best of both worlds, why not?
