The papers smoldered and burned most of the evening and at bedtime it was still warm, but that warmth kept dew from forming on the can overnight. I try to put it away before it gets wet because it can rust if it's left out.

Last night I wasn't feeling 100% so I didn't walk the dogs, but today we took an extra-long walk to make it up. I wear a fitness tracker and carry my phone, so I get the number of steps from the tracker and the phone tracks the route and tells me how far we walked. They don't always agree with each other, but success-breeds-success, when you see that you've been walking every day and meeting goals that were programmed into each device.

I went to lunch with my daughter today; she texted and said she had a hankering for a seafood cob salad. Pappadeaux's has one on the menu that used to be offered as medium or large, then they went to just large, which is humongous. Way too much for a normal person to eat, so when we go over now we split one salad, the shrimp and crab meat version, and both leave there completely stuffed. If I get it and am not sharing I ask them to box half and only bring me half to the table. Restaurants are culprits when it comes to enabling people who really need to cut back and lose weight.

On my way back I stopped a couple of places, including the thrift store where I usually buy jeans, and found two pair. They went into the wash when I got home, and just now were hung in the closet, where the pair that needed replacing was removed and dropped onto the stack of jeans material for craft projects. I also found one of the Romertopf clay bakers, never used, that I sell on eBay. I have one myself that I use several times a year and chickens come out so moist and tender and falling off the bone. Anyway, two pairs of jeans and the clay baker and I think it all cost about $10. I'll sell the baker for probably $30 on eBay.
