And so today I reach the end of my 4 day work week as many of you begin yours. Ain't life odd sometimes? My lunch / dinner is cooking in a small crockpot: chicken, with olives, tomatoes and basil. I threw in a handful of white grapes to give it a bit of pizazz. And yes, if you're wondering, I cook my lunch everyday, and always with fresh vegetables.
Today the mercury is supposed to climb up to 94 (F). I don't know if anyone says that anymore, but that used to be a rather common phrase. There was a time when people used mercury in thermometers, even the ones in stuck beneath your tongue to take your temperature. Once, when I wasn't feeling well at school, I bit one and broke it; the school nurse was not pleased and had me spit out the pieces. Now, just sit back and imagine that, me, with mercury in my mouth and having to spit it out. For those who don't know, mercury is poisonous. And we used it in thermometers.
