I got my desktop computer updated at last after Fedora crashed yesterday's effort. I am glad because I did not want to switch distros, but dislike imperfect updates.
I settled in to do some family paperwork, which occupied me until 11:30 a.m. Then my wife asked me to drive into Dallas. My father's widow's daughter has had intensified health issues lately. She expressed to my wife a desire to have a particular kind of
salted caramel cookie. This cookie's savory flavor apparently pierces even a bit of loss of the sense of taste. This confection is manufactured by a local concern, and sold at a select group of markets. One of these markets, I was informed, was Jimmy's Food Store.
Jimmy's Food Store proved to be a small home-made-pasta-centric establishment in an older storefront, filled with a very loyal and perhaps vaguely hipster clientele'. Apparently, Labor Day brings out the urge for pasta in those who know. I wandered the shelves past tortellini, wines and biscotti until a helpful sales attendant pointed me to the cookies. My wife packaged the cookies this evening, and I will get them shipped on tomorrow.
A workman came and installed knobs and rods of this type and that, as the contruction project edges towards completion at last.
After I dined on a sandwich at WhichWhich, I took a walk in Limestone Quarry Park in Frisco. I had the park largely to myself, though it is a very small park with a nice little hiking path so that the experience was not like being king of all I surveyed.
I settled in to watch a marathon showing of the Jennifer Ehle/Colin Firth teleplay of "Pride and Prejudice", which I enjoyed (once again) very much) I then went to Tian An Mian Wok for chicken with broccoli. I finished my day with a short walk at Allen Station Park in the dusk. I will do a bit more family paperwork, and then rest for the work week.
