~ SUNSHINE! ~ Car Wash ~ Potsalagoo ~ Chip and Dip Day ~

Good 36º morning.            
Yesterday we actually had sun! Driving to Medford....Mt McLaughlin in the background...
And.... Table Rock  .......
Went to Costco. Brian wanted bar-mop towels for his bathroom at the office. He is doing the environmental thing. The cleaners next door will wash them for him and he'll keep a stack in the bathroom so he doesn't have just one towel (with germs) and doesn't have to buy and throw out paper towels. Then I got Maggie some 'chicken' dental chews, broccoli, freeze dried sliced garlic and diced onion.  
Left there and went to Grants Pass to the car wash.
Sorry Oregon people, when I wash my truck you can be guaranteed of at least a week of rain! Stand by....
Stopped at Brian's office
and had a cup of coffee, chatted, gave him the towels. Then to Staples to trade in the old ink cartridges I bought for my old printer for new ones for the new printer.  Then off to Rogue River and trade in the prime dog food Maggie won't eat for some cat food on sale for Harley. I had a coupon for free Yoplait yogurt and a buck off 14 cans of cat food. With the dog food credit and the total of my purchases, I owed the market 27¢.
Got home and tried the 'new' chicken flavored dental chews on Maggie and she took it politely and then dropped it in the living room! Sigh....................................... I had given Brian the two bags of regular dental chews she wouldn't eat, for Atlas. B said he loves them. Looks like he may get some chicken flavored ones now too.
Dinner ... cooked and mashed broccoli mixed with sauteéd hamburger, mushrooms, garlic, onions, and cooked brown rice. Added bread crumbs, 2 beaten eggs, grape tomatoes, and parmesan cheese. Sickeningly good for me. Tasty though with added hot sweet chili sauce. (I make my own.) Baked until browned. Something like this I'd always call 'pots-a-la-goo' (a one dish/pan meal)

There is a little teeny tiny baby lizard in the outside door jam of the dining room door. OMG, he's sooooo cute! Will have to be vigilant and get his picture!
