Another day, another dollar...

... makes me want to holler...

Sidebar: That probably only makes sense to me and Victoria.

After hitting 87 degrees on Sunday, it was noticeably cooler on Monday. I probably should have worn my coat, but I'm tired of wearing it in the morning and then having to leave it in the truck at lunch.

Speaking of lunch, I took a late one. Amanda had sent me a text, asking if I wanted to try the new Panda Express that just opened at Middlebelt and I-96 when she got off of work. I said, "Sure."

Sidebar: I am more of a traditional Chinese restaurant kinda guy, but I can be flexible. Especially when it comes to cute chicks...

So, I met her there at 1:30 p.m. (hungry as hell). They let you taste-test anything you want (which I thought was nice). We both tried the spicy shrimp. It was excellent. So, Amanda got that in a bowl, served over white rice. But, I wanted to try the orange chicken (Ten Yen does not serve that so I assume it's an American version of a Chinese dish). I got that over a bowl of "fried rice" that seemed to have way too many vegetables (Carrots? Peas? Really?)

It was really good, though! We laughed and talked and told each other stories. Then it was time for me to leave.

I couldn't eat it all (I never can, these days) so I took my leftovers back to work.

Since I went to lunch so late, the afternoon passed quickly.

Once I got home and treated the whiny cat, I changed clothes (long pants - its chilly out there) and went back to work on the raised bed (okay it was an old sandbox, but "raised bed" sounds cooler) vegetable garden.

Sidebar: One thing I noticed about being so late to plant this year: the weeds are much taller so they are easier to pull. They all went into the compost heap. Then I worked up the soil with the garden weasel.

But it was already after 8:00 p.m. so I just watered all the veggies (they are on the patio). It's still supposed to be cool tomorrow, so they should be okay.

I ate the rest of the orange chicken after washing up. I started watching TV, but turned it off and went to bed.
