Sleepless in Redford



Monday was another chilly day here in Southeast Michigan, but at least it didn’t rain!

For the first time ever, I forgot to put the coffee cup under the single serve coffee maker when I turned it on (I was cleaning the kitchen counter at the same time). Jake told me that when he did that, the little reservoir you sit the cup on caught it all. But, I always push the button for a large cup of coffee (I have a large cup, you see), so mine caught "most" of it, but I still had a mess to clean up!

I went to the Newburgh Grille at lunch and had a bowl of Chicken Lemon Rice soup and a mini Greek salad. I told you it wouldn’t take much to put soup back in my menu on these Fall-like days, LOL!

When I got home after work, I took the trashcan out to the road. Then I treated the cats and changed clothes.

I had been putting the word out at work I had a free mini bike for anybody willing to take on the project. Some folks wanted a picture, so I went back out in the garage and took some pictures of the little Honda. It’s a long shot, I know, but there are a lot of mechanics where I work. I'd hate to just put it out to the road.

I took the night off as my finger and back were still both bothering me. I warmed up two slices of the meatloaf and a baked potato for dinner. Both were excellent, but the meatloaf was a little dry.

I loaded up the dishwasher enough to justify turning it on. I’m hoping the “drying” cycle warms up the house a bit. I’ll be damned if I turn on the furnace on July 29!

I watched a little TV and then decided to go to sleep at 9:30 PM. Well, at least I tried. I gave up at 10:00 PM and turned the lights back on and watched Longmire. Then I watched the news. Then I tried reading a book. It was after midnight when I finally dozed off.
