June 14 was  my 64 years of marriage life. So I got up and rode my exercise bike for 1/2 hour while
I watched the weather channel. Decided I'm not going to cook or do dishes today. So I picked to go
to Huddles for Breakfast had sausage biscuit gravy. Then Dick and I went for a 2 mile walk in Creston Park.  Then we watered the garden with 2 gallon jugs each  by that time Dick picked to
go to Red Lobster for Lunch. Then we water the garden some more and Dick went to Popeyes and
brought Chicken home for Dinner. I mixed up some rolls to bake since I was out of bread. My daughter and son in law came up for a visit with watermelon.So I had a day with no COOKING and just a few dishes from the roll baking. Then I enjoyed reading on my library book.
