It was down in the 30’s again on Monday morning. But it warmed up nicely and we eventually got into the mid-60’s.

I went to the Newburgh Grill for lunch and decided to try something different. So, I ordered the hot turkey sandwich. It came with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies and way too much gravy. It was a hot mess (literally, lol). I ate the whole sandwich, about half of the mashed potatoes and a few bites of the mixed veggies before I was stuffed.

From there I went to Lowe’s and bought that one rebar and a sponge I needed. Then I drove back to work through Hines Park to check out the fall colors. We are still not a peak around here, but there were some gorgeous trees.

Back home, it was warm, but windy.  I pounded in the last rebar before going inside. I changed clothes and went out back.

First I spread out the sand in the garden. There was a lot more sand left than I first thought! I’ll let it sit all winter and then, next spring, spade it up and work it in.

Next I fixed a bucket of warm water and Pine-Sol and washed the kitty litter box with my new sponge. I also washed those warmer trays I used to smoke things.

Back inside, I warmed up some more of the shrimp scampi for dinner. I watched Jeopardy and some of The Voice and went to bed just after 9:00 p.m.


  1. Why are you putting sand in the garden?

  2. I agree with Carla, a little is fine, but half of the garden os to much

  3. In the interest of those attending your next BBQ, which did you wash first?

  4. @ Carla & GPF: It looks like a lot but, spread out, it's only about 3 inches thick. I will work it into the dirt and compost next spring.
    @ Jake: LMAO!!!

  5. @Jake I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to hear the answer
