Sprinkles ~ Plumbing ~ Shopping ~ Wine ~ Laura ~ Martinis again!

Good 54┬║ sprinkling now morning.

Today my plumber, Mike Artoff, is here to change the plumbing under my sink, put in a new garbage disposal, and put a new filter in my pump house up in the pasture.
That is the reason my blog is late... had to clean out under the sink. OMG, what a ton of stuff under there. Will be tossing in the trash for sure. (I know that makes my BFF and a few others happy!)

This is funny..... Monday morning at the tram stop... everyone serious...then comes the laughing man! 

Yesterday my friend Nancy Perry and I went to Costco. I got the usual, dog treats and more dog treats..... Also they had the Asian Roasted Chicken Wraps.... OMGOOD!!! Got home and dove into one right away!
Also got artichokes... Ocean Mist are the BEST... California grown, family owned farm, Globes. I posted this picture on Ocean Mist FB page and they thanked me...
After we shopped at Costco we headed to Trader Joe's. I got some Two Buck Chuck (here in Oregon it's $2.49), some Boatswain "chocolate beer" .... 
(will let you know on that one!) and some Mission Hefeweizen....
(quote from their website, "Our award winning Bavarian-Style Hefeweizen is unlike the cloying lemon-laden beers that flood the market under the same name. Ours is a classic, a pious ode to the summer style, replete with hints of banana, clove and pear. It’s all in all refreshing, and no fruit was added-nor needed. Instead the complex character of the beer is produced through mastery, detail and authentic Bavarian yeasts.")  Sounded interesting.
Also, found some Aioli Garlic Mustard and some Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar. YUMMMM... AND they had black refried beans!!! with jalape├▒os!!! And picked up some 'Cuban Style Black Beans'. Can't wait to try the refried black! 
Ok, so fun shopping done we headed to 38 Central for a glass of ......
David Graham, owner, always a pleasure to see him.
The sky/clouds were pretty awesome on the way home yesterday afternoon....
And... last night at 8:30pm....

Today is a special person's birthday... Laura Vincent Virant... former Temple City neighbor, friend of Kristen's. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA! (with one of her prize winning Wheatens)
As for history and births this date... not a lot went on.. you can go to the archives for that.....
New garbage disposal is in place! Yes! Thanks Mike. New plumbing under the sink, new filter in the pump house, and he fixed the toilet seat that I have not been able to! Mike my hero!! When Mike isn't plumbing he's fishing!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
