Addie, glad you and your son have those memories of driving the PCH. I drove a bit of it with my daughter a couple of years ago on our way to Santa Barbara, and we saw dolphins frolicking.

GG, that's a beautiful bounty. Have a great time on your road trip!

Nickee, great job on running the race in this heat (must be warm there, too...) And thanks GG for the definition of D'Eh. lol I learned something new.

I just got back from the doctor's office - there's a weird spot on my temple that has recently and drastically changed appearance so they did a biopsy. Today will be a kick back rest of the day. Although, I enjoyed those enchiladas so much from the other day, I'm seriously thinking of making another batch while I've still got the fixin's.

That's a wonderful thing you do.

What do you do with giant overgrown cucumbers? Make cucumber agua fresca (fresh cucumber water). I peeled, seeded, chopped and puréed three large cucumbers and let them drain through cheesecloth over a bowl. Then I mixed them with 1 cup water, 2 tablespoons of sugar and the juice of 1 lime. It's resting in the fridge. I'll freeze it before we leave on our trip and when we get back, it will make yummy martinis with lime vodka.

6:40AM here, I'm up, showered, dressed and waiting for my daughter to come and pick me up - we're going up to the Kern River Valley for the day. We're stopping at a huge farmers market up there, all the veggies and fruit are grown right there on their acres of land. It's only about a 45 minute drive from here.

My grandson will love the baby ducks and geese that just hatched. We'll probably have lunch at one of the cute little restaurants along the river. Have a good day, all!

Successful trip form Santa Monica to San Diego.
Today I flew a lady who was a breast cancer survivor to Visalia in the Central Valley. I could not believe it, but she had about 135 pounds of stuff with her! It filled up the back seat and the entire baggage compartment.

Thank you, Taxy....it was SUCH a great day! Nice to get out of the hot valley and up into the cooler mountains. I'll put up a couple of pics in the random photo thread, we saw some pretty fabulous scenery.

Whoa, that's a lot of gear she packed. She's probably lucky she didn't have to weed things out, with the weight restrictions and all. Glad you do what you do, Souschef.

Just spent about an hour at a condo association party. Ho hum. Ate a couple of uninteresting hot dogs on white buns.
