I always have to remind myself that you are in a different time zone and season.

Hello guys

Sunny, warm Sunday here today and a lazy Sunday too!

We are going to go out a bit later to grab a bottle of red wine to use in our gravy tonight...for our roast lamb

You are also a day ahead I think. Aren't you on the other side of the date line? Right now it is 6:25 a.m. on Sunday the 25th. It does take some figuring out.

Umberto Eco (he wrote The Name of the Rose) has written a novel entitled, The Island of the Day Before, which plays on the strangeness of the fictional Island's location on/at the International Date Line. It's on my list of "should reads" and I hope to get to it one of these days. Might make things clearer for me.

Getting ready to go to a food trade show with a local food wholesaler we use at work. It's a good opportunity to see what is new out on the market. The problem is they always want you to taste everything. It will be a challenge now with my new eating lifestyle.

There are some things that just have to be tolerated, not matter what

I like going to wine tastings...that's fun. I know one of the fellows who works for a distributor and he makes sure I get 2 invitations to all of them in Missoula.

Kicking back and regrouping after a flurry of activity. I somehow got a burst of energy and desire to accomplish...lots.

After breakfast I made two loaves of French bread, a pan of dessert bars, did a load of laundry, washed and set my hair and set a big pot of split pea soup on the stove to simmer for our dinner.

Time to put my feet up and relax for a bit.

Thinking about dinner for tonight. Leftover rotisserie chicken...sounds like chicken and dumplings to me.
