On time

Being up early enough to make a 7 a.m. Breakfast appointment is too early for a Saturday. But here I am, at Taquería Arandas (on Shepherd, near I-10), waiting for my friends to show up. I give them even money that they won’t be here anywhere near on time. But I set the time and place, so I have to be punctual.

Gonna stop typing, once of my friends is here.


It was a great day. Breakfast with friends from work. The Dragon Boat Races with friends from work and other friends. Lots of Vitamin D, a mellow mood, a nice breezy sunny day.

After the races we went to the Farmer’s Market in the Heights. It was this cure market with about 10 stalls that had a nice variety of foods and wares. Veggies, grass-fed beef, Indian sauces, and local honey were just a few things on sale. Very cute, but very limited.

I think that I need to try one of the bigger markets next. Or maybe I’ll try the one at Discovery Green. One of the commercials I saw for the new park had a farmer’s market listed as one of the activities they offer. It would be a good excuse to go to the park.

Anyway, had lunch with Mom, little sister and the kiddo. Had a leisurely day after that.

All in all, a very good day.
