Good 43º clear gonna be hot again today morning. Was 81º here yesterday. Weather folks say 91º today. HAVE to get some grass cut. All this sun is making it grow faster and faster. Sigh.....
Happy Hump Day Y'all
Yesterday was a trip into Medford. Yearly appointment with my cardiologist, Brian Morrison (cutie). From my fasting blood test on Monday he said my cholesterol is PERFECT and my blood pressure (which normally has been high) was PERFECT! Said everything (heart, aorta) sounded great. YIPPEE.... I'm sure losing that little weight (so far) has a bearing on my blood pressure.
Took this on the way into Medford. Clear skies. Sun. Still a bit of snow on Mt. Mcloughlin. (sorry crooked... one hand on camera and one on steering wheel! camera is VERY heavy!)
After the doc's a stop at Costco. They didn't have any artichokes! OMG. This is the first time ever! Got some of this...
Sounds like a great little healthy snack!
Then to Grants Pass not to drop off the artichokes Jennifer wanted... but gave her the earrings I made of her cat Bridey...
The black ones that look like Bruiser I made for me...
I've got to find some beads that look like Dude!!!!
Dinner was a rerun of the meatball tomatoes and I stir-fried some asparagus Nancy and Dave gave me. They grow their own and it is soooooooooooo good. Fresh and so crunchy! Cut off bottom end, cut into bite sized pieces, add olive oil to pan, the asparagus, and drizzle on some balsamic vinegar. Fry til hot.
The vinegar I used is this Napa Valley Pomegranate...
Watched some TV, napped, and watched Jimmy Fallon. He had Diane Keaton on. She is a whack job! The way she dresses and acts. Weirdo!!! Her outfit was sooooo odd. Black pantsuit, huge wide belt in the middle, black and white plaid tie, shirt cuffs hanging out, and that hat. UGH. I turned it off. She thinks she is soooooooooooo funny! She's not. (she used to babysit for my nieces in Santa Ana where she went to high school)
