Boy was it hot yesterday. I've been staying in the AC; and that hot, humid air hit me in the face when we went out. I had a routine doctor's visit yesterday. She wants me to have a new MRI; but I don't want to have any of my tests or labs done until after we get back from our trip. After the appointment we went out to eat at Olive Garden. We always get the salad with no onions and the bread sticks without salt. I had a delicious dinner of rigatoni with a 5-cheese marinara and grilled chicken. Hubs was not impressed with his spaghetti and meatballs. Shopping online for various things for our trip -- rolling duffle bag, backpack and swim trunks for hubs...many of the summer things are sold out. Today is Friday the 13th. Do you get nervous on those days? What's new in your world? Photo Credit: In an email from a friend.

Where are you going on your trip? I hope you find everything you need online for your trip! This Delta strain and Delta Plus strain is very bad. We learn that a new family member or friend has it every day now. So sad. Take care!!

@LadyDuck Yes! It's going to be 79 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius) today and no more of that awful humidity. This will last at least a couple of days.

Sounds like a nice day for you despite the humidity. No, Friday the 13th has always been a great day for me.

It's not quite as hot now; but it's still very humid. The 13th doesn't bother me either.

Crazy heat wave all over. Glad you got your doctor appointment done. Always good to enjoy a meal out. Good for you. Too bad your husband was not impressed with his. Olive Garden is one visited often, haven't been in awhile but plan to return soon for those breadsticks especially. I have found many things, even some grocery items are getting low.

The cold front has moved through; and the weather will be tolerable today and tomorrow. We were able to score everything we were looking for on Walmart.com. Took a lot of looking; but that's OK. Have a good weekend.

I do not get nervous on Friday the 13th. I thought you were not going to go on that vacation to Florida with the covid numbers being so high. I'm glad you went to see a doctor. I hope you will listen to her. I've never been a big fan of olive garden. So I like their salad dressing, I'm not an iceberg lettuce person. And I don't eat the breadsticks. And it's not really Italian food, as much as it's American Italian fast food pasta, in my opinion. I just never liked this kind of chain.

Hubs says the trip is still a "go". I hope we can get our booster before the trip; but I don't think there's time. I really need to get an MRI. I'll see what happens when we get back. Olive Garden is not my favorite although my meal was really good.

I love Friday the 13th, and really anything with the number 13 in it. Thirteen is my favorite number, and also happens to be the jersey number of every sport I've ever played.

Check out TJ Maxx. They may have stuff. I haven't been to Olive Garden in a long time. The few times I was there I enjoyed the food. Good idea to postpone your tests.
