Friday the 13th.

   .....turned out to be a good day for me. The temperature was just below zero and the wind was from the north and quite strong, but I had good company over coffee at the Senior's Centre. Of course, we had to get through the Fitness class first!

    I stopped by the mall on my way home and got my hair cut. My hairdresser is so obliging, she took me almost right away - I had to wait 20 minutes so went over to the library and read magazines until she was ready. Then home for lunch (the last of the soup made from the carcass of the Christmas bird. Don't worry, it's been in the freezer since then). After a nap I organized the name tags for the RWTO lunch next Tuesday. This is a new job for me but turned out to be far easier than I thought - took me about an hour and a half. There will be 110 people attending and the speaker is our former Director of Education.

   Salmon for dinner tonight with peas and a potato which I will bake with cheese sauce. I broke down and had a cup of coffee and a muffin this afternoon (I don't usually have a snack between lunch and dinner) as a reward for working on the name tags. However, I mustn't make a habit of this as I still have a couple of pounds to shed from the holiday binge eating. Wish me luck!

Scalloped potatoes straight out of the oven - hope they taste as good as they look!
