Hump Day ~ Blueberry ~Electric Harley ~ Veggies & Shrimp ~ Late Reason


Good 61º cloudy morning.

HUMP DAY!



On Monday our babygirl, Alex (granddaughter) got her car. A 2000 silver VW. She calls it "Blueberry"...
Kristen said it was an experience for the novice driver... from Fullerton, 4 freeways, and lots of traffic to Covina, good thing she had her mom to follow!  Dropped off mom's car and picked up Jack at summer school in San Gabriel, then back to Covina! I'm exhausted just thinking about all that So. Cal traffic!

I was having a "motorcycle" discussion with friend Bob Klamm... Harley has come out with a new scoot, electric. ICK.

I showed him a picture of Jerry's 1990 Fat Boy. Which of course is now in Paris France! 
We sure had a lot of fun rides on that bike. Yesterday I was going through drawers and found his license plate.. you California LE will appreciate it! I have it by his pictures and flag presented by LASD.

Went into town yesterday... package at post office, baking soda to clean the battery terminals on the 6 batteries in the golf cart, and get more weed control mesh at Ace and some WD-40. At the market I also picked up some salad shrimp.

Dinner: carrots, green beans, asparagus, mushrooms...

Cut up a shallot...

Cut all veggies bite size and put all into large pan drizzled with olive oil.. and sprinkle on Trader Joe's 12 spice along with some crushed garlic (from a jar)...

I put it on med/low and lit it cook for about 45 minutes.

I buy the salad shrimp as it's the only one from the USofA!! The rest of the seafood is from Peru, Viet Nam, Thialand... YUCK!!!

Then I heated a smaller pan with olive oil and patted dry the shrimp and added that in, with the same seasonings. Cooked until browned slightly...

Mixed all in the large pan and plated it....
Absolutely WONDERFUL!


Late today because my tree trimming guy, Marteen was here at 8:30. Prior to that I had to lay down the weed control mesh because the guys who spray the bark will be here soon. Raining. Not a lot, but sprinkles. I did hear some thunder. I was going to mow but can't get the danged lawnmower to start! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa......................

 
All I know. Happy Hump Day. Nuff said. Ciao.

Can you believe Trish your baby girl will be driving someday!!! Won't be long. Time certainly goes too fast! xo

Congratulations Alex...Be safe
I agree with you on the traffic issue. I may have to drive a bit further to do shopping, but I never have to fight all that traffic in our rural area, and I like it that way. We don't even have a traffic signal in our area... NICE..!!!

In RR we only have one, and it's at the crosswalk by the school. Rural life is the best!!! xo
