Thought you might like to know what I have been up to.

I just cooked myself up a plate of six of the biggest sea scallops and served on a bed of tartar sauce that I made up myself. These were dry scallops, not wet ones. I even had to remove the foot on each one. All I did was salt them. I was so tempted to use pepper also, but I know what the consequences would be. A couple of days in the hospital. They were soooo good. I browned them on both sides real quick on high heat, then turned the heat down so they could cook through. I do not like raw seafood.

Oops, misspelled dawgluver, sorry. Thanks so much for the tips. Copying them now.
Lobster pizza sounds like something wonderful! I haven't had lobster in years, love it. They sell it frozen in cans in my supermarket. $25 for less than a pound. Bought some once for a special birthday dinner, was pretty good, but I imagine that the fresh stuff is heavenly!

Had a busy day today. My usual every two weeks shopping trip to the "big" town about 46 miles away.

Good day getting supplies/rations and picking up on some bargains for next year's Christmas decorations and some presents even.

Stopped at a new place off the highway on my route home that was quite interesting. They called it a consignment store, but it was more like an antiques/collectibles store. Lots of very nice stuff and well priced. There were some repros (all marked as such) and I bought an enameled sign for Glenn for his birthday. Has a great graphic of an old car (about '30s or so era) with a shapely girl atop it. the words on the sign say, "What happens in my garage, stays in my garage!" I loved it. The only improvement would be if the car was a motorcycle instead. Still, the car works because Glenn's restored many, many, many cars.....

At the moment, I'm relaxing on the sofa with an "adult beverage" and looking forward to a very calm rest of the evening with my sweetheart.

Just got home from a nice Italian resstaurant. It's our daughter's 13th birthday & that's where she picked. Great food & service.

Smart girl. Sounds like she has a discerning palate. Happy birthday to her.

I'm sitting around wishing I had room for another piece of that pork schnitzel we had for supper and, like Katie H, enjoying an adult beverage.

I didn't eat any dinner as I was too stuffed from lunch (out with my girls) but I DID find room for some pound cake and bumbleberry sauce. I am now sitting in my chair with a cup of peppermint tea, groaning. Lordy WHY did I eat that much today?

Just got done taking the sheets and pillowcases down off of the wash lines, thanks to the great temperatures we are having I was able to hang outside today. They just said on the radio that we might break the record high today.

Off to the Library I go, I go... I read a lot. On average, about 2 books each week and I out of reading material. I resorted to re-reading last months "Smithsonian" magazine. It has an excellent article about The New Madrid fault system, that was responsible for the 1811–1812 New Madrid earthquakes.
