The traffic camera that took that snowy owl video is about 2 miles from my house.

Love that Snowy owl video. Trust me, having one fly right at you literally takes nerves of steel.

It's 8PM, the kitchen is cleaned up and closed for the night. Set my alarm for 6:00 so I can shower, have a light breakfast and coffee, and be at Tyler's first basketball game tomorrow morning at 8. Not being a morning person , I'm going to go ahead and park myself in the recliner, find a movie, and unwind. G'night, all!

Be sure to let us know how Tyler and his team do, Cheryl. Kids are so cute when they're playing sports. Loverly played CYO basketball from 4th through 8th grade. We really hated the tournament games, always held early in the morning (yup, 8:00 AM) and always at the gym furthest from our home. Still, it was fun watching...once we woke up!

Yawn, I hate getting a bad night's sleep!

I roasted chickens all night long!! I got up four times for the bathroom and every time I did I tried to clear my mind of roasting chickens. It never worked, and in the end I had a big taste test for hundreds to determine the best roast chicken. The 425F taste test won. Gahhhh. It will be a long time before I actually roast another chicken.
Think I'll go back to bed for chicken free sleep.

I hate that too. Have you been roasting a lot of chicken?

I used to get that with work. If I got it several times, I knew it was time to get a different job. I spoke with a truck driver who said that sometimes he dreamt the whole night that he was using the clutch on his rig.

I think it's probably related to a recent chicken-roasting thread...

Hope you have a nice nap, Kay!

Just tossed dinner in the Nija. Lot's to to in the kitchen today.
No interruptions. so I'll be steam cleaning the counters, and bay windows.
I can't see out of them. Should also steam clean the vent filter over the stove.

Looks like it's going to be a fun day alright. A real fun day.
Where is that cornfield?
