Good sunny clear 46º morning. Topped at 86º yesterday.
As of Saturday afternoon, I still could not add photos to my blog. I was still fit to be tied. I had done everything I could think of .. defrag, scan, delete cookies, delete temp files, reboot.... Sigh...
Then this morning it hit me..... restore to prior to the Windows updates. TAAAA DAAA.....
So, today is "party day"... I am hosting a birthday gathering for PJ. Yesterday I cooked a couple corned beef briskets in the crockpot. I roasted red potatoes and radishes. I stir-fried asparagus. I made Jen's ranch dressing and a horseradish sauce ... with whipped cream! I have Franz Bakery rolls for the sandwiches. Everyone is bringing chips/dips/finger foods. Will share recipes later.
The 4 hours of mowing yesterday morning from 7-11 wore me out! But, it had to be done. At least I have a great (?) start on my "farmer tan"!! Sadly there is tarweed everywhere! I can't have it sprayed, because none of my neighbors spray theirs so it just comes back. A scourge from California!
It's pretty and very pungent sweet smelling.
