Finally Friday!

It hadn’t rained overnight (as predicted) but it was chilly! I had more date and nut bread for breakfast and then got ready for work.

I walked briskly outside in the morning (I didn’t take a jacket).

It started raining around 11:00 a.m., but just lightly. So, I went to Time Out and got my Friday fish and chips. Then I drove back to work and read until 1:00 p.m.

It had stopped raining by the time I headed home for work, but the roads were still damp. There was some sort of problem on I-96 and, just past the Middle Belt exit, all lanes stopped dead.

Sidebar: Why does this always happen after an exit you could have escaped to?

We slowly crawled to the Inkster exit, then I ran into a traffic jam at the top of the ramp. Good Lord!

I finally got home, treated the cat and changed clothes. I checked the gauge and that five hours of light rain gave me barely a quarter inch of rain. But, everything was damp and dripping (and it’s supposed to rain on Saturday) so I decided I didn’t need to water anything.

It was a pay day, so I wrote some checks and worked on my financial spreadsheets. I had a cup of coffee so I could warm up.

I took one of those huge pork shops and cut it into cubes. I tasted one and it was perfect! If only the ribs had turned out that good!!! I poured a little BBQ sauce on the cubes and warmed them and an ear of roasted corn in the microwave.

I ate an excellent dinner watched the last of the Nightly News and the first part of Wheel of Fortune (I was too lazy to change the channel).

Then I used the DVD and watched “Master and Commander” for the hundredth time. When it was finished, I went to bed.


  1. I don't think I've ever seen that movie. You must be watching it for the both of us.

  2. Its excellent if you like sailing ships like I do.
