A thunderstorm woke me up at 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday. I watched a pretty impressive lightning show, first through the bathroom window (of course) and then from the kitchen window.

It was still sprinkling when I got up at 5:30 a.m., but had quit by the time I left for work.

Some people at work had stories of high winds, downed trees and power outages, but we didn’t have that around here (thank goodness!)

I went to Annie’s at lunch and then the 24-hour grocery store. Somehow, I missed putting more cranberry juice on my Saturday Kroger’s list. I discovered that Monday night when I went to grab another bottle in the pantry and found it was the last one. So, I picked up three more and will try and keep a better eye on my stock.

When I got home after work, I took in the trashcan and then came inside. I briefly went out back (after treating Caley, of course) to check on the rain gauge. Last night’s storm resulted in 1/2 inch of rain here.

I warmed up some pulled pork and made two more mini-sliders for my dinner.

Sidebar: I recently learned that if you like to put coleslaw on top your pulled pork sandwich (as I do) it’s called “Memphis style.” But, I don’t know why…

I finally hooked up with a fellow woodworker who has a lathe and made arrangements with him to drop a dowel off tomorrow night. I need it turned down at both ends and had no way to do it myself.

I watched the original “Hunchback of Notre Dame,” a 1939 movie starring Charles Laughton and Maureen O’hara on Turner Classic Movies. Then I watched “The Night Shift,” a medical drama on Channel 4, before going to bed.


  1. I do like "Night Shift" good show. P.S. That Pork really looks good

  2. Thanks, it was. And, I made it in a slow cooker!!! Yeah, I just happened to come across the Night Shift, looking for something else. Started watching it and couldn't stop. Unfortunately, its a summer series, so once it ends, we'll have to wait a while for the next season. :(
