When I go home to the PNW, I eat for reasons of nostalgia. I like to go to the same old places and order the same old things. I seek out candy bars that were the favorite of my youth, such as these two favorites pictured here.
They aren't especially good candybars, but they aren't even available where I live now, so I am always on the lookout. I found them this time in the far eastern corner of my county and I bought me and FOOs some. I already told the FOOs that I brought them back, so that will keep me honest until Friday, when we will go to one of the last drive-in movie theaters still in business. I'm afraid of what would have happened had I not told them to expect them :-) Let us hope that these packages of chocolate nostalgia stay firmly in the freezer until movie time.
And in other news, I put in an offer on Grandma's Condo this afternoon. I am strangely at peace about it. Let the negotiations begin! If it works, great. If not, then there are other things out there for me. I love the location on this place, but it is way overpriced, I think. So we'll see if there is a way to get it purchased and re-invigorated and still make it a wise investment. Yet another real estate trick - taking pictures in bad light (on purpose)! This picture makes the bathroom appear in shades of neutral. What it is in all actuality is mauve and blue and silver foil wallpaper! Pebbles came over to see it this afternoon and pronounced it as having "good bones". We'll see how much of this I can stomach. Seriously, I think I will garner experience, even if this one doesn't work out.
Food and exercise were great until Pebbles and I decided to celebrate and our first restaurant choice was closed. We ended up diving into a pot of chips. The good news is that neither of us ate more than two bites of our dinner, so it was bagged up to be taken home to Slater. I'm sure the salt bounce alone will be scary.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Test your mettle.
