What are you doing?

I made up a bunch of pseudo Egg McMuffins for the freezer with Costco Canadian bacon and cheddar slices. DH wisely brought home a package of regular English muffins instead of the whole wheat ones from Walmart. Good choice. And I used up a few eggs past their use by date, not that it bothers me.

Lovely clear night tonight. This gave me the perfect opportunity to step outside and enjoy the full (Blue) moon. Sooooo beautiful and I've been able to watch it rise slowly as I sat in my place on the sofa. Could see it climb in the sky through the front door windows. Nice treat.

Sounds so peaceful. My windows face north. And they are way back in an alcove. I don't even get to see daylight unless I raise the blinds.

I am relaxing. It's that time of year again - swap the winter tops for the summer ones; clean the window frames and glass inside and out and put the clean screens back in. After being in boxes all winter, I always like to do a quick wash with the tops before I put them on hangers. I'm all done with mine, about half-way with Himself's (he has WAY more clothes than I do, seriously!). I have about half the screens washed (16 house windows, 6 sun room windows), and just the front-upstairs windows ready for those screens. Need to get this all done between raindrops, too, before temps climb to 80 on Wednesday! Thank goodness for central air when it gets that hot. Just so long as it's cool enough to sleep at night, we'll go with open windows, though.

I got all the toys out. Spread manure, disk and plant sweet corn.

With help from my Dad we got 4 of the Barberry bushes planted...I have a hedge! Still need to get five planted today. And I have to stay out of the farm store, I keep dragging home more things to plant. Pics are forthcoming, but not until I have it done.

Getting ready to go to the dentist to pick up my new partial denture. This has been quite a procedure. My current one fits like a glove, but the first one they made somehow got bent slightly and they had to start over. I wanted a new one since the one I have has been repaired and I thought it would be a good idea to have a backup instead of super glue!

When I was there they said the appointment was at 12:30 but the email said 12:00 so I'll just show up at 12 and see what happens.

Just back from delivering the Memorial Day pots to the cemeteries.

I stopped at the market in search of a small wedge of watermelon, no luck! My only choices were a half watermelon for $6.01 or a whole watermelon for $3.99!

I went to plan B and ended up with a banana, an apple and an orange. When I got home I added a snack cup of pineapple tidbits in juice and a few frozen seedless grapes to make a fruit salad that will last me for a couple of days.

Right now I should say my perfume is GARLIQUE No. 5. I just spent the last little while making a wet adobo for the Puerto Rican roast pork shoulder I'm planning to cook on Sunday. Omigosh the rub smells divine and, now, the shoulder has been slit, the slits filled with rub, and the rest of the rub slathered over the outside. Has to cure for three days and is rotated during the curing. Can't wait for Sunday dinner.

In our house, garlic is one of the basic food groups. Even though it's only the two of us it's not unusual to go through one to two heads per week.

Thinking about my equipment list for my solo bikepacking over-nighter in the local mountains this coming weekend.
