It's a good day. Chillier than I want it to be and there is a fine mist falling outside which makes me anxious. It's like someone holding a bat over my head and I'm cringing in expectation, my heart racing...just waiting for the *whack*. I wish it would just go ahead and rain already. Maybe some of that pollen that's stuck in our heads would be washed away.
I have a cheesecake cooling on the counter and it smells like the bottom got a little "too done". I refuse to say "burnt". Liberty helped me mix it all up and once we were done, she was digging through my recipe box in search of another creation. I'm not feeling very domestic today so I wooed her away with the offer of a computer game. I know.....I'm a great mom.
We're having supper tonight with a Brazilian couple and their 5 year old daughter. Hope they like cheesecake...burnt cheesecake (there...I said it). Hope we like her Brazilian cooking. Hope I can understand everything she says. Portuguese is hard enough to understand, but Brazilian Portuguese tops the list. And this lady is the fastest talker this side of the Atlantic....I kid you not.
How often have I complained about not being able to buy shoes here. My skies don't fit in anything! Well....imagine this....what if there was a Nike Outlet here in Portugal? What if this outlet really had outlet prices on a select group of shoes? What if these shoes just happen to be sizes 9-12, the sizes too big for all the ladies here? What if they marked those shoes down to unbelievable prices? AND..What if I happened upon this magical store yesterday??!!
Yep....you guessed it! I'm the proud owner of not one but TWO pair of brand new Nike tennis shoes!! Nike's are outrageously expensive here in Portugal. (But not these...hehehehe!!) Thank You Lord! Now those ladies at the gym won't know what hit them when I walk in with these babies. They're so white, I think they glow.
And get this....apparently when you loose a little weight, your feet get smaller! My old tennis shoes are size 11. These are 9 1/2. Now If could get my panty size down like that I'll be doing good. I'm afraid folks wouldn't notice weight loss in my feet like they would on my backside.
Today is laundry day. Electricity is cheaper on Saturday afternoons, so you can find me in the laundry room...if you dig down far enough.
