Contrary to popular opinion, plastic is not bio-degradable.
After reading many of your blogs on Friday I learned that the weather was supposed to be really nice over the weekend. I pretty much believe everything I read on blogs; still, I had to see what a nice day looked like for myself. It's been so long since I've gotten out of this computer chair and experienced a nice day outside. I have plenty agreeable days inside, but not so many outside. It's usually either to cold or to hot outside in Louisville. The perfect days are few and far between. But Saturday was one of those perfect days that I hear so much about.
I'm obviously capable of generating many perfect days, but the credit for this one goes to a power greater than myself. We started out by eating at our favorite country restaurant, Cracker Barrel. Coffee, stimulating conversation, and breakfast food is a great way to start a perfect day. So is smoking a joint, but I'm on sabbatical from weed this week. And then after we finished breakfast we did the unthinkable, we decided to go to the park instead of shopping.
The magnificent body of water in these pictures is called the Ohio river. The land on the other side of the river is called Indiana. I don't know to much about Indiana except that I can buy fireworks legally, but I can't set them off there (do you find this as stupid as I do?) and the RCA Dome is about two hours from where I took this picture.
We spent about an hour at the park and then we went home and consummated our perfect day by watching some television. Well, I watched some TV, the pregnant woman took a nap. Then we cooked dinner together. Yep. A perfect day.
Friday was a pretty mediocre day until I went over to Sunshine's blog and learned that she gave me a Thinking Blogger Award and wrote some really nice things about me. I've pretty much been stalking her blog all weekend and rereading the post ever since discovering it. I probably would have read it about 10 more times, but she has one of those cursed Site Meters and I don't want her to think I'm 100 percent freak. 75 percent is fine. Her blog is about her family and her life and she's really funny. She's also extremely generous and rumor has it she's a big Star Wars fan as well. She's also been known to be a little rebellious towards hippies at times. I enjoy reading her blog and really you would too. Again, I say thank you Sunshine.
