Hump Day



Okay, I know I sound redundant, but the weather was about the same again. It may have been a little breezier and a degree or two higher, but same-same. I love it!

I went to Time Out at lunch and got a ham salad wrap. It’s been a long time since I had ham salad. It was pretty good.

I had hoped to spray herbicide on the driveway after work, but it was a tad too windy. I wasn’t going to risk it. It took way too long to get my grass back!

But, I did go out to the shed and got the pump sprayer. With this long stretch of good weather, I should eventually get the chance.

I also walked out and set up the game trail camera in a new location.

Back inside, I started the Wednesday wash. Then I started dinner. Now, I realize with this kind of weather, I should be grilling something, but this meal was planned when it was still fall here (last week).

So, I took eight of the smallest baby Yukon Gold potatoes and cut each in half. I threw them in the Dutch oven. I covered them with a bag of sauerkraut. I topped that with a rope of Kowalski kielbasa, cut into two-inch lengths. I brought that to a boil and them let it simmer for an hour or so.

I watched the news until it ended and then switched to my book and the porch rocker. I checked every now and then and, when the potatoes were fork-tender, I plated my supper.

Fantastic!

I watched the taped first episode of this season’s NCIS. I was annoyed, though. I thought it all started next week, so I missed taping the new spin-off series, NCIS New Orleans.

When it finished, I watched the taped first episode of this season’s Big Bang Theory. I try to slip in quirky comedy shows now and then to keep me sane. It hasn’t worked, but it’s a good concept. I must admit, I had also started watching Garfunkel and Oates.

I read until bedtime.

Before I let you go, did I ever tell you about my niece, Mary? She’s a lovely woman, great husband and two fantastic children. She does occasionally have moles in her yard, but otherwise, she seems to be doing fine. Just thought I’d mention that…

  2. @ GPF: I know... There's always something to spoil the perfect life. But, on the plus side, she has a gorgeous pool that neither of us has been invited to swim in...
