Getting ready to go to the wharf and buy some freshly caught Salmon for dinner tonight.

Our son and daughter in law will be coming home tonight and staying for the weekend.I'm going to make them surf and turf for dinner.

If only I could do something, ANYTHING with my hair I'd be ready to go.

I am having a bit of a lazy morning as it has been a hectic week.

I have been checking my email while sipping my decaf and munching on an English Muffin (away from the keyboard of course!).

Next I will start TB's breakfast and his sandwiches for work. I am treating him and our friend Kay, who has been staying with us, to lunch out so I want to have everything ready for him to just leave from the restaurant!

Yum!

I miss the days when I lived on the waterfront and just had to walk the equivalent of a block or two to get fresh caught salmon! Now I have a whole 45 minute drive!

Oh, YUM! I'd love to have some of that - we're too far inland. Have a good weekend with family!

About the hair...that's when baseball caps come in handy.

Relaxing now, it's been a productive morning. Had my car smogged and an oil change, went to my grandson's Kindergarten for Grandparents Day - hung around with him for a couple of hours for the festivities and a catered lunch provided by the school, then stopped by the DMV to renew my registration. All that and home by 11:45.

Made a fast run to the store to pick up something Pirate forgot at the supermarket. Have been trying to get hold of my daughter. She is helping her daughter move into her new apartment in the basement. I would like to see the final product.

Which wharf are you near? Lived in SF for a while and always went to the wharf before it became so commercial. Those were the days. The big crab pots, loved it!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that, in and outside the house. Tomorrow I will be moving bricks and seeing if Dad has an edger I can borrow. Round Up for the weeds in the back.

Enjoy, PF! And it will be so nice to not have to chain up your grill and still have it stolen!

We had a lovely visit with DH's cousin and his friend. They're driving cross country and still have many hours to go to get out east. Another one of those visits where you just pick up where you left off, wish they could have stayed longer. Sadly, their daylight driving hours will be spent going through IL, OH, and NE. The more scenic states will be driven through when it's dark.

I don't know that I could drive that long any more. Used to do it all the time. They didn't pull into their hotel until 5:30 this morning, got a few hours sleep, then popped in to see us.

Princess, I'm so happy for you and Shrek having your own home, able to do what you want to fix it up how you two like it, a reasonable drive to work, being near family, and snow country. Can't get much better than that!

Dawg, glad you had such a nice visit with family. I would imagine IL, OH and NE are plenty scenic, but I've never been to those states. I couldn't drive hours and hours at a time anymore these days, either. I'm hoping to get up to my aunt and uncle's home up in Sacramento (NoCal) for a visit soon, but that's an 8 hour drive and my daughter will have to drive me. She doesn't know that yet, though.
