Walked to work this mornng

May 23rd, 2011 at 06:17 am

Made the 40-minute walk to work this morning. It was a little humid and my hair is a bit fuzzy -- and my back hurt -- probably from yesterday's strength training exercises -- but I did it!

Now it looks like rain, so I hope all that gets out of the way before I make the walk home.

I started to walk to the library yesterday to return a book and to get the exercise. It started to rain, so I ducked into a little museum I've been meaning to visit a long time. It was very cute -- a old railroad depot -- and it had railroad memorabilia, plus a lot of Ovaltine memorabilia. The old Ovaltine factory is on the site of the complex I now live in, so it was kind of fun. I have many good memories of drinking Ovaltine as a child, though Nestle's Quik was my drink of choice!

Anyway, I went back home without getting to the library and then we had some strong storms, part of the system that was so devastating to Joplin, Missouri.

So tonight's plan -- after I walk home -- is to drive to the library, then to Wal-Mart, where I will pick up a prescription and possibly buy a new blender. I have a little one-serving blender which is fine for small jobs, but I am finding I need something with some gumption for bigger jobs.

    That's so nice to be able to walk!

    At risk of divulging too much about myself, my cousin lived in the Ovaltine factory - just bought a house and moved out.

    I rather wish I had signed up to live in the factory, but I opted for one of the modern outlying buildings. It was more space for less money, kind of a no brainer. But I think the factory apartments are very kewl!
