Finally Friday!

I woke up with the alarm on Friday morning. When I walked into the bathroom, I saw the full moon, perfectly framed by the trees in my backyard. Wisps of clouds scudded over its face. It was beautiful!

But, by the time I left for work, the clouds were thickening and the moon was covered (or had set).

I went in early to pay some bills online as it was payday. But, the internet connection was down! So, I did work work until people started showing up.

Despite my assurances that she didn’t need to do it, Vicky wanted to buy my lunch. She had “forgotten” her purse at Michelle’s lunch, so I bought hers then.  So, I took her to Gabriel’s. We each got the cheesesteak hoagie, but she added chips. They didn’t have water, so I got a small Dr. Pepper (I’m not much of a soda drinker). Vicky ordered a “half and half.” I asked her what the hell that was. She said its half iced tea and half lemonade! Never heard of it before, but I’ll try it next time. Sounds good.

Sidebar: Remember me saying I would try the peppers “next time?” Well, I asked what kind of peppers they were and the girl said unseeded jalapenos. She also said they were “kinda hot.” So, I passed, but Vicky got them on the side and added them sparingly to her hoagie.

The afternoon passed slowly as they all do. It did finally get sunny, but it never got warm.

When I got home, I found that Caley had barfed on the bedspread. So, after treating her and changing clothes, I washed it. That didn’t seem to be such a big deal with the old bedspread, but this one is much bigger and thicker. So, it has to be washed alone and it takes two cycles in the dryer before it’s actually dry.

I didn’t want to do it, but I think I’m gonna start shutting the bedroom door before I leave for work.

I did my online work while listening to the nightly news. Then I cooked a pound of thick spaghetti and warmed up a container of the meat sauce I’d made and frozen a while back. I ate dinner and then I started watching the hockey game. We won 4 to 2!!!

When it was done, so was I and I went to bed.


  1. Weird about the peppers. They used to have pickled cherry peppers they'd add. Still. They are some great cheese steaks. Did your guest enjoy it?

  2. I thought the peppers would be like banana peppers or poblanos, something with a little kick, but not deadly.

    She loved it.You have once again added new converts to the local cuisine!
