this card is from the Pondering Pool
The knock on the head really did addle my brain. I had several errands to do, and I didn’t plan my route very well. The same intersection 3 different times from various points of the compass.
And in one parking lot, I was standing by a cart corral, looking all over for our dark red Chevy Astro van.
Trouble with thoughts going thataway, our van died over a year ago. We had to clear out the debris and pay the towing fee. It took me a couple minutes to remember doing the activity. Then I had to really tug on a memory for what color is the car I’m driving now. A little silver 4 door. I found it 3 lanes over, parked next to the newly planted little tree I used to mark the spot.
I had a couple boxes to drop off at the thrift store. But I was passing a grocery store, and remembered I need old-fashioned oats. There was beef and chicken on Clearance because today is the expiration date. $30 gone because of a box of oats. The fridge is full, and oven heating up.
The box still needed to be dropped off, so I did. Then I went over to the main entrance and proceeded to look things over. As I was in line to pay a quarter for a small bowl, I remembered foodstuffs waiting in the trunk of the car on a sunny day.
Carrying everything inside, I got a look at the clock on the kitchen wall. Why I hadn’t checked the clock on the dashboard of the car, I can’t say. It was 8 hours since breakfast. Yet I hadn’t felt hungry until that very minute when I noticed the time.
I microwaved some leftover soup, then decided supper can be chicken.
My gracious goodness, what a day. It reminds me of message getting around about having ADD—Aging Deficit Disorder. Being very busy, but getting nothing done.
