Indulging Yourself


"It's been a depressing winter, and there's nothing wrong with indulging yourself a little."

---- Ran Kivetz, a business professor at Columbia University, on people being so worried about saving money that they miss out on life's pleasures.

We went to the Round Top/Warrenton Antique/Flea Market a few days ago. Parking is always tough but we watch out for the Funnel Cake truck and park near there. The Market happens only twice a year and we don't go everytime but when we do, Susan MUST have a funnel cake. That's the only time she ever eats one. Yep, just as it looks like in the pictures below, cooked in an obscene amount of grease. Covered with powdered sugar. Eaten with fingers. This year the wind was blowing really hard so she anchored it down with the plastic knife. And then did her indulging. She didn't share and I didn't dare ask.

Well I have never eaten a funnel cake which is pretty bad considering the amount of time I have lived in and visited through Texas!
I think I may have to put that one on my life's "To Do" list!
