...at least for the moment. It's been a good, busy weekend. I do best when I'm busy. I don't have as much time to overthing things. To ruminate. Interestingly, I just realized that the verb ruminate is related to the adjective ruminant. Makes sense, since a ruminant is an animal who chews its cud. Actually, it regurgitates its partially digested food and chews it again. It has four stomachs. There are 150 species of ruminants, including cows, camels, goats, sheep, giraffes (wonder how they get the food all the way up their throat from their stomach?), and water buffalo. Unfortunately, I feel like a water buffalo at the moment. I ate Mexican food yesterday, and Dim Sum today, so I've probably had a near lethal dose of sodium. I hate this bloated feeling. Ugh.
Dim Sum was good, though. It's been at least ten years since I've had it. My usual place closed down and my D.S. buddy moved away. So when I heard about another restaurant which serves it, I couldn't wait to go. Generally, it's served only on weekend afternoons. They roll little carts around and you choose what you want. Kinda like tapas on dessert carts. There are lots of Chinese people there, so you know it must be good. I had some old favorites. One of these days, I should get up the courage to try the chicken feet. I have a feeling that since I don't even like barbeque ribs or chicken wings, I won't like chicken feet. I'm not fond of eating animal parts which look like what they are. Like fish or shrimp with their heads on. Any organ meat. You get the idea.
I got The Daddler some shrimp-fried rice to go. It's nice to know that his supper's taken care of. I'm so glad he's not a picky eater. Mother would've driven me crazy that way. Except toward the end, she barely ate at all. Wow, I miss her all of a sudden.
I suppose animals are on my mind because I had a beautiful morning at the zoo yesterday. It's been forever since I've gone. Perfect weather. Good company. Very nice change of pace.
That's all for now - duty calls. Over and out...
