Just Enough Lazy

I live in an apartment (until my house is ready!), and I joined a CSA that delivers so my weekly produce deliveries are made to the air-conditioned main office (bonus!). This afternoon I met my mom and kids at my apartment, so I parked in front of my apartment to step in to check if they'd picked up the produce already. They hadn't, so I grabbed my luggage cart and went off to fetch it. I wasn't lazy enough to start my car again and drive to the office, but I wasn't so tough as to lug that cooler back without some convenience! Just enough lazy to use wheels.

Yay! I passed my next level of ham radio exam (General)!

Rise Biscuits & Donuts

The next stop along the Doughnut Quest was Rise Biscuits & Donuts. The good news: this doughnut was tasty! Most of the flavors were sold out by lunch time, so I just had a chocolate glazed doughnut, that was a glazed doughnut with chocolate on top. The doughnut was still a bit greasy for me, and even more shudderingly sweet than I expected. What I liked about the over-the-top sweetness was that it tasted so typically Southern, like the first time you taste Southern sweet tea and discovered new heights of sweetened that you did not previously know existed. So it was too sweet for me, but I don't want to disparage it either. The quest continues, but Rise can stay in rotation. Their doughnut flavors are inventive, their attention to detail is excellent, and they didn't stoop to the trendiness of the first stop.
