Split Second Photos ~ Errands ~ iPhone ~ Asian Chopped Salad ~ Do Nothing

Good 43º drizzling morning.
Started in with the rain in the afternoon yesterday. Heard it coming down pretty hard in the night. And I didn't even wash my truck!
You will laugh...
These photos were taken right before a disaster... OMG!
Yesterday a quick run into Grants Pass, waited til afternoon as it was so danged cold all morning. Didn't warm up much. The drive into town was gloomy....

Stopped at the Kitchen Company ...
( Their FB page: ) to drop off Jennifer and Mike's Elk's Crab Feed tickets. 

Then stopped at Brian's office ... 
for a quick visit and to drop off his requested item from Costco and pick up my new iPhone!!! Getting to be a techie! LOL
Since I have an iPad this isn't as complicated as I thought it would be. Brian got it all up and running then we went a couple doors down to the US Cellular store and the gal transferred all my info from the old phone. It's very cool. I love the photos it takes! Better than the ones with my little Nikon!

Then the camera shop, Photo Den,
with some questions about my camera. Showed the young man what happened when I took a flash photo.. see where the light is coming in from the windows... well, it would flash black and white right after the photo was taken. He said it was one of the settings... he fixed it! YEAH! 

Lastly the pharmacy for a prescription pick up and to the market for turkey and chicken hot dogs for Dude.
Had a chat with Jeannie and sang Happy Birthday to Bill. (Poor Bill, his hearing may not have recovered yet!) Then I fixed dinner....
I bought the Asian Chopped Salad at Costco. (check their website: ) It has cabbage, carrots, celery, cilantro, cashews, black sesame seeds, almonds, wonton strips, and Asian Sesame Dressing. 
I sliced up the mushrooms and tossed them with some of my infused (garlic onion red pepper) olive oil... (That's not wine, it's the bottle I put the infused oil in.)
Chopped a couple tomatoes and mixed it all together...

National Nothing Day

National Nothing Day is quite simply... a day for nothing.
This day is an "un-event". The expectation is that we do not create or otherwise promote this day. In other words, we do nothing. And, to say anything more would contradict the purpose of this day.
Celebrate this day by doing....nothing. Of course, that assumes that doing nothing is okay with your boss and/or your wife! (same same)
