– Walked, CREDIT moi, to a bike store to buy a Thule roof rack for our trip to the Adirondacks. Car roof racks used to be simple - back in the days of rain gutters like the Thule roof rack in my basement. Now, with aerodynamic car bodies, there's a tailored rack for each car. Starting from scratch one has to order four separate components. Fortunately, I can reuse the cross bars and the locks but the expensive parts must be new. The only good news is that I like giving business to this local bike shop. Local businesses struggle to keep the doors open.
Eating was only so so. I'm still fighting tension with a string of to-do items that had accumulated and need attention. I'm still acting as if snacking should be a part of that.
– Ouch for discovered surprises when working a project - BTDT. [Thanks for "we'll go again"
- that's just what I need to remember that it's to be fun, not a military drill.]
– Congrats on dropping two-thirds of your fuel costs for a drive over the hill - that's impressive. That's also an impressive list of ingredients in your morning smoothie.
– Kudos for deploying "Oh well - you will survive"
to ward off 'hunger,' and then using "oh well"
again the next day. Of course I had to google Fish Pie
, "a traditional British dish," and now want me some.
- Have a happy last day of Un-Frugal July in prep for your "Frugal August."
I do love cactus prickly pears when I can get them.
– Waving back toward the long road up from Florida. May you find acceptable food choices.

If you're tempted to keep on eating when you know you shouldn't, do the following: . . .
Give yourself credit for stopping - at any point. If you want to keep eating but you don't, you deserve credit! It's important not to let yourself become demoralized. You need to give yourself some slack for being human and making a mistake.
