Saturday, Breakfast at Golden Corral. Cash the check at Wal-mart. Shop at a small road side flea market. Found a nice bone handled knife for $30. A Wii game, a couple of CD's, some scented oil for a diffuser.
Sunday. Breakfast in Dover, A excursion to Paris. Turn around and come back home. (it was less than an hour to drive to Paris) We were looking for the road to a state park, and we missed it. We might go back, next weekend.Jerry not feeling good. Not feeling bad, but not feeling good either. I was like that last week.
I trimmed Jerry hair and beard Sunday afternoon. I went shorter than he wanted, I think. but he said it was very hot, and wanted it shorter. I forgot to take his picture after I was done. one side looks longer than the other, but I think that's because part is laying down and the other side is sticking up.
(10am) according to Accuweather it's 74F outside. It's pleasant, unless your having to move around a lot. I broke a good sweat just moving my pots around and then watering every thing.
The Dogs ... Barney "discovered" how to get at least the front half of him wet, in a dish pan. He dives his head under the water. So funny! I picked up a cloth "ball" at Bills warehouse, and he and Macon love it. They play keep away with each other with it. I hope to play ball with both of them today, either out front or in the back. I'm not wanting to move the picnic table around back, just our chairs and the plants. The grill and the table, I want to leave out front.
BBQ meatballs, Salad, Alfredo noodles, Peanut Butter Fudge.
I plan on cooking outside today. First I need to use a extension cord and plug the air conditioner in to the 110 outlet at our power box. Otherwise I'll have to reset the breaker every time the air conditioner comes on. I have some meatballs that I'm thinking of cooking in some BBQ sauce and have as sandwiches. I'll make a Salad. I might make Alfredo noodles and serve the meatballs over noodles instead of having them in sandwiches. I have a recipe for peanut butter fudge that I want to try.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
Put above ingredients in saucepan, and stirring constantly,
watch for this to come to boil.
Time it at slow boil for 3 min. exactly. Remove from heat, and stir in quickly 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
Immediately, pour into buttered dish, let cool slightly and cut into squares.
(made the fudge at 5:30) Easy enough to make, but a very large plate would be needed. I quickly sprayed a small baking pan and poured into that) I do remember Jerry's mom making Peanut Butter Fudge and pouring it onto a buttered plate, but her's was much thicker and stood up, not spread out, when she poured it onto the plate.
My early lunch is a ham sandwich and a bit of cheese.
(10am) Dark Grey cut of sweat pants (shorts) and a purple and pink splattered shirt that Bailey Made for me on our last visit to her home.
I am reading... I finished H10N1 over the weekend. The ending left me wanting to know more, but over all it's a good read. Not as good as Stephen Kings. "The Stand" but good read. Make you think about what you would want to "hoard" if there is a pandemic. I think the barbarian attiitude of the survivors was a bit over played. Now I'm reading . "Pathologies" a collection of short stories. very short and not all make much sense. I did like the one titled "My Parole"
