I went with a friend to Omaha (50 miles away) to Laurentzen Gardens and we walked through the building and then on a path all the way to the gate at the end. I had my coat unzipped until the return walk. It was probably about 55 degrees but there was a breeze. The Gardens are so beautiful, at all times of the year. They were doing a presentation about dangerous plants today. I saw some venis flytraps and cactus and well-about everything. There were plants there that my Mom had in the house that I learned today were harmful or even deadly-if eaten. It was very interesting, and I got my exercise. They served free non-alcoholic drinks too, that had names attached; I had peach opiate and strawberry strycnine (sp). I wasn't all that impressed with the drinks, but hey, it was free & it was fun thinking of flirting with danger.
I have to take a deep breath every time I am with this friend. She is type A & thinks that she knows everything, (she is 30 years older than me). She's a trial, but I love her. I wasn't in the best mood this morning & really didn't want to go, but I didn't want to disappoint her. I had a good time while there, but the ride home was heated. Somehow we got on the subject of abortion & we were totally opposite. I tried to change the subject several times & she kept telling me her views. ugh. We did stop by the Baker's chocolate factory on the way home & she bought some & shared with me, so over-all, the day was pretty good.
Now I'm on a sugar high and will have to find something healthy for supper. The sunset was beautiful, pink across the entire sky.
Have a great evening,
