Mowing etc. ~ 3 D Drawing ~ Vegetable Pasta

Good 40º clear morning.

"They keep saying 'rain', so it looks like we may get some....

Yesterday a quick run into town to make a bank deposit, then back home to mow. Well, I waited a bit. It was still cold. Then it heated up to 72º. Mowed and mowed. By then it was 79º.  Still a lot more to do. UGH. Did about 1/2 or a little less. I did the part on the right and down a little farther...
 You can see the tall grass that I still have to work on....

Dorrie, who works at Ace, said her husband has a brush-hog and wanted to come over and take a look at the property. I was going to have the guy who did it last year come back but he called and has a neck injury and can't turn his head. Not good if you are driving a tractor! Anyway, Dave (another one!) will come on Sunday and start. It's a 9-12 hour job.  $$$$$ He will finish up through the week in the evening after he gets off work. YEAH, the fields will be cut!
Sent to me by Steve Voors (LASD ret)... this is just amazing... a 3D drawing:

Later PJ came by and picked up an old doggie igloo house that was in the barn. She put it out for her new cat Woody. He and Neko, their other cat, like to sit inside them in the backyard.

For dinner I wanted pasta... so took the leftover veggies from the mini-bites, added more carrots, and some canned mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, fresh broccoli, fresh celery, and fresh baby spinach... along with spinach pasta...
Everything was heated with a bit of olive oil....
.... and added in minced garlic and some Alfredo Sauce....
Cooked and added the spinach noodles....
.... then the fresh spinach....
This was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!!!! 
PERFECT for a vegetable lover!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao

Lost Sock Memorial Day


Lost Sock Memorial Day recognizes your drawer full of unmatched socks. Each unmatched sock represents a missing sock. We never throw away our unmatched socks. After all, it may show up someday.
On Lost Sock Memorial Day, we suggest you spend a little time (as little as possible) searching for those missing socks.  After a (very) brief search, and in good "Memorial" spirit, spend a minute reflecting upon how warm and comforting the missing socks were on your stinky toes. Then, by all means, get on with your life.
we encourage you to use this special day, to toss out all of your unmatched socks. Let's face it, you're never gonna find the missing one.
