This year Steve decided to take off for the day and then asked me where I wanted to go. I had never been to Washington, MO so I thought that might be a nice little jaunt - however, that was before I knew the heat index would be triple digits.
So we went to IHOP for breakfast and then had a nice little drive to Washington. Our plan was to walk around and see what there was to see, have lunch and head back home. Well guess what - there is not a whole lot to see there and 80% of what is there is closed on Monday. So I guess we spent about 45 minutes wandering around at a few shops (I think we found 3 open ones), checked out the Amtrak station (even the tourist center next door was closed), and then decided we might as well head home - besides, I was already caving in from the heat.
We ended up going to a matinee to see the Batman movie. It was alright but so loud it really gave me a headache. My headache and the heat kinda messed with my appetite so we just grabbed a bite at Fridays and came home. But that's ok cause we are celebrating again Saturday night with the Beardens - whose anniversary was a few days ago - and are planning to dine at a nice restaurant that night.
Right now Steve is downstairs with his Pinocle buddies and I'm debating whether I want to watch tv reruns or finish reading a book I'm really not enjoying (it's our book club selection). Maybe I'll just go ahead and start on a new book and finish the other tomorrow. Which reminds me - I'm running out of books on my list - anyone have some good ones to suggest? thanks - and stay cool!
