Back when I use to be able to add links.

On Saturday we did our normal bi-weekly trip to Ann Arbor Michigan (we live in Toledo Ohio) for Grocery shopping. We do weekly trips to Kroger here in Toledo but Ann Arbor has Whole Foods and Trader Joes. It’s surprising how many people we know that do the same thing.As I was leaving Whole Foods I heard someone call out my name. There was a woman smiling all happy at me. It was one of the very nice women from my yoga practice. * It’s funny to see someone unexpectedly like that. The circumstances were so surprising that I didn’t recognize her right away. A couple of nights earlier we had run to Krogers and a nice young man was smiling and talking to me. Took me a few beats to realize it was one of the Physical Therapists. He was the one who did my initial assessment. Very nice guy, but again, wrong place so I didn’t recognize him.

Also unexpected was walking to our car at Trader Joes and suddenly seeing these guys running down the sidewalk in the shopping plaza.


They’re just babies. There is a small pet supply store that keeps food and water on the sidewalk and I’m guessing they were there for lunch. The pet store lady came out and grabbed them. She said they had been there the day before as well.

Last night my husband, my sister and I went out to dinner. It was a Vegetarian Meet Up. Only two other people came, Liz & James. Liz is the nice woman I had lunch with a couple of weeks ago and James is a really nice guy so it worked out just fine.

I really hope I can continue to do dinners with the group at least every few weeks or so. It’s good to get out. We tried a Vietnamese restaurant that I had not been to but have been wanting to try. They treated us like we were their most important customers EVER. Have you ever been treated like that in a restaurant? It was a welcome change from the usual feeling like you’re bothering people by paying them to feed you.

Look at some of the beautiful food:





None of my pictures came out very well. I need to check my settings on my camera. I keep changing the settings for a specific picture and then forgetting to change them back.

Off to find some breakfast. Shouldn’t be too hard after all those trips to the grocery stores, right? Actually, I think I’ll have leftovers from dinner last night.


Here, go read my sisters blog. I had some things to say on this topic but have run out of steam. 🙂


*It occurs to me that the people who do yoga regularly with me are all very nice. Is it the yoga practice or the yoga teacher that draws nice people? Are all people who do yoga regularly nice?
