Now I Know Why The 3 Bears Were So Upset . . .

Our day started this morning with two Amazon deliveries, one of which was my Respawn Gaming Chair.

Respawn Chair

Of course I can’t start using it until I get somebody over here to get the old one out of the rig.

Before my recent unpleasantness, I could have done myself in an hour or so, but not now, especially with the 20# weight limit on what I can lift. So I’m going to try and get someone over here this weekend.

I also ordered a chair mat to go on the floor underneath it. It should be here Friday.

The second delivery was a couple of small shelving units for Jan. So it should be a busy weekend putting all this together.

Before we left the rig this afternoon, we fired up our old faithful workhorse Dodge Dakota for the first time in several months. We were going drop off the Jeep at my mechanic’s so he can take care of a couple things before our upcoming Branson trip starting the 4th of December.

Then it was up to Webster to have lunch at Snooze, our first visit in a while. They’ve got a new Holiday menu, and one of those items caught my so I decided to give it a try. And now I know why the 3 bears were upset with Goldilocks for messing with their porridge.

The new item, called Goldilock’s Porridge, was delicious.

Made with a mix of steel cut oats, quinoa and millet simmered in almond milk, and then topped with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, bananas, toasted almonds and hemp seeds, it’s probably the best oatmeal-ish dish I’ve ever had.

And I paired it with an order of their special bacon, rubbed with brown sugar, cayenne, chili flakes and drizzled with black peppered maple syrup.

Jan went with her usual Bravocado Toast. So mundane.

Finishing up our afternoon, we made a  Krogers stop for a prescription and a WalMart visit for some needed stuff before getting back to the rig a little after 4pm.

Today was my first day driving again since my operation, and it felt good to be back behind the wheel.
