I am killing time until my ride arrives for my cardio visit. So much joy with all this miserable rain coming down to spoil my parade. Oh well, I am small enough that I can dodge between the drops.

Getting ready to hook the rake up to the tractor. That little rainstorm we had last night overflowed the creek, bringing with it all kinds of debris into my yard. Too much to rake by hand.

Was wondering if that tornado last night was near you...you must have been on the edge of the storm.

CG told me about that this morning. I didn't know anything about it.
The local news is saying it is being investigated by a specialist to see if it was actually a tornado.
I went to bed early last night because the storm was affecting my satellite TV. It was one heck of a thunder/lightning storm for sure. And the temps increased dramatically. It feels like August outside today.

Headphones for him PF. They've saved Himself's life and my sanity. "TV Ears" work too but the headphones are cheaper. As a bonus our kitty likes playing with the wire that runs from the TV to his ears.

I was up at three a.m., took a shower, short nap, got ready for Dr. appt. Got home, tired, and still had half of my morning pills to take. If I take them on an empty stomach, I will be paying for it all day. What have I got?

one small can of seasoned diced tomatoes
half an onion
two small link sausages minus casings
Angel hair pasta
butter, salt.

Puree tomatoes after draining watery juice. Drank the juice
diced the onion
crumbled sausage meat, sauteed with onion
Add pureed tomatoes
Simmer on very low

Cook angel hair pasta. Enough for two bowls.
Drain, add to tomato mixture.
Finish with a large pat of butter and salt
Onions still have some bite is how I like them

Perfection. Take pills. Now is the time for a long nap. Doc Martin is on tonight. Will have second bowl when I wake up.

I just got done ranting to the Direct TV girl.
I was looking up their number when they called me. I said, Hey, what a coincidence, you go first. Free HBO and a free movie every Saturday. Yay me.
I'll stay with them one more month. I was just going to cancel them, too. Free is free though, even though I'm paying out the wazoo for another month.

Just checked into my flight to Austin, Tx., tomorrow morning to visit my sister, BIL and Dad (he's flying in from Calif.). Upgraded to first class for $135. The ticket was free for points we built up on our credit card Will be back Tuesday!
