I have been 40 for almost three months. I will say, I have A LOT more plans that have popped up in the past few months. I made a list of things I wanted to do a few months ago. Several I have plans to or made a good attempt at--One, go see Manatees. We visited a highly likely to see manatees place (Sanibel Island) for a second time, no luck on any sightings--but we gave it a good try. Two, I wanted to visit Rick Bayless's restaurants. I have plane tickets purchased for a Chicago trip with friends from college days. Three, I made a dream mention of potatoes from a stand in Belgium. I never in a million years would have dreamed that my Fall plans would include a trip to Belgium, France, and wherever else I may wander in those two weeks.
About a month into 40, I had to get glasses. It's a long story and I started writing it and thought, why would anyone want to know this? Long story short, eye strain was a contributor to terrible headaches. The day my glasses came in, I was heading to the airport to visit Austin, TX for the first time. I was able to catch up with old friends, Angela Sinclair and Mike, Janet, and Greg Pruett. Oh--Josh and I managed to see Jerry Jeff Walker at Gruene Hall.
Great British Bake Off is on again! I love it and have been craving some Black Forest Cake since I saw an episode that featured it.
