I've been tinkering with my latest pistol off and on today... well within the confines of my air-conditioning. It's brutal out there today.
I think I'll reheat some broccoli with cheese sauce for lunch.

Doing laundry and trying to get the house into some semblance of order. It's an exercise in futility.

Listening to baseball, trying to forget about my achy lower gut. Glad I have leftovers in the fridge so Himself can take care of his own supper later.

Andy, bet that throat wouldn't be hurting if you had won Powerball. Better luck next time - but I hope you win against the sore throat now!

I cut up a small piece of chuck into chili size bites and two large onions. I put the meat in a zippy with some seasoned flour and there it rests in the fridge. I am going to make some SOS with some mashed sweet potatoes for a side. I have been making a real concerted effort to get some veggies into me. More veggies, less meat. Right now I need a cup of coffee.

DH and I just got back from the pool. 2 glorious hours with no rugrats! And then the invasion.

Um, well I have done very little today. Britain is in the grip of a heat wave (30C today!) so that's my pathetic excuse for sitting around and watching TV (apart from a few light chores and making dinner).

I am, of course, LOVING the heat wave!

We just got home from going up north for the weekend. Some good friends had their 30th wedding anniversary, we stood up for them at their wedding & them for us. Nice time but good to get home. Some disturbing news about a couple at a nearby lake. Terribly high winds came up with storm warnings. They decided to stay in the trailer house instead of trying to outrun the storm. They had hurricane straps on the trailer house. Needless to say the wind took it. The wife was in the bathtub & was killed, the husband stood in the doorway bracing himself & survived. Very sad. They were so much in love. He will be so lost without her. They both used to come to the pool where I go for water aerobics. She was only 53

Oh no. That is awful, SB.

Glad you're home and safe.

I'm watching BBQ Pitmasters. Their two meats were pork bellies and chicken wings. Sweet. And two teams just injected their wings... interesting.
