It was paper recycling day yesterday. Roy helped carry out the box, minus the cat.
In the notes to self file: Don't go early to Sunday evening swims. At one point there were 9 people in the "fast lane", and five were swimming recreational breaststroke. It thinned out from 5:00 - 6:00, the time I usually shoot for. My rationale had been simple, but clearly flawed. As I filled four lawn waste bags for the last pickup of the year, I thought the extra time would be spent in the hot tub. Which I did. But the first half of the swim really wasn't pretty. Note to aforementioned breaststrokers. Don't rest at the wall and push off immediately in front of the person swimming freestyle. It's rude. The same applies to those using kickboards. Unless you're really fast!!!
On the up side, because I'm the Crockpot Queen, I set the appliance on high to simmer spaghetti sauce. I'm thinking there may be a sloppy joe in my future one night after practice! So I arrived home from the pool to the smell of sauce. And I had some for dinner.
