ON THE BACK BURNER

May 9

The sun was shining when I went into the grocery for a few items. I had a list, I was in a hurry, I was in the store 20 minutes. When I came out of the store, it was pouring. I am getting tired of this weather game. In 30 minutes, the rain was over , and the sun came out. You don't even dress for this kind of weather. You just get wet and live with it.  I filled my  gas tank before I went to the grocery and it is sticker shock.I spent as much on gas as I do on a weeks worth of food. There are days that I don't use the car and I am going to be more mindful about consolidating trips. My son is planning a trip to Colorado and for fun, he tallied up how much it would be to drive, vs flying. Flying is cheaper and faster .I was hoping for a road trip,but I guess not. I will be going to Colorado in a few weeks and for a few minutes ,I considered driving. Even though Colorado is a western state , as is Washington, the distance  between them is many hours on the road. Which is fine with me, except I don't want to leave Dixie for so long. I'm her seeing eye person.
