Nice Saturday

Had a really nice, quiet, enjoyable day today. It started out taking Dinah to the vet, which wasn't exactly enjoyable (especially for her), but wasn't too bad. Bob left for the golf course around the same time as Dinah and I left for the vet; I brought Dinah home, then headed out again to run a few errands. Bob called me while I was at the post office standing in line. He said he was going to stop and pick up a sandwich and wanted to know if I wanted anything. I said no, that I was going to stop and get something to eat while I was out. A few minutes later he called back and said his brother had called and he had run out to where he was and help him do something with his car, so it was just as well!

After the post office, I went to Subway for lunch. I got there right in the middle of a huge rush--the guy in front of me was ordering five sandwiches and the group in front of him must have ordered six--but I wasn't in any particular hurry, so I didn't mind waiting--much. I have to admit I did get a little antsy. The guys working there were kind of slow; it always takes quite awhile there, because every sandwich is made to order, but sometimes it's faster than other times. And they apparently have a new policy of cutting the sandwiches in half and wrapping them separately, so that adds to the time.

This particular Subway also seems to always be playing particularly irritating music, usually a hard rock radio station, which, when combined with a shop full of people, three people working behind the counter, etc., makes for a somewhat noisy place. But I stuck it out, got my sandwich, and sat in a corner booth for awhile reading. It quieted down pretty quickly, thankfully.

After lunch I went to Target for groceries, and got home in the middle of the afternoon. Bob was upstairs watching golf or something; I put the groceries away and sat down to read for awhile, then decided that a nap sounded lovely. I went upstairs, read for a little while until my eyes closed and the book dropped from my hands, and ended up sleeping for, I think, around two hours.

Later, Bob grilled hamburgers outside, I made pasta salad, and we had a really nice, summery dinner. He doesn't usually get Saturdays off, so it was nice for both of us to get to do things that we liked to do during the day, then spend the evening together.
