Rain ~ Judge Gives Options ~ Chicken & Pasta ~ Aloha

Good 50º cloudy morning.

Last night about 6pm :

It got wildly windy. Howling wind. Then apparently we got some rain. Not much, but everything is wet out there. Surprise. The radar shows rain north of us...
Jeannie said that it poured at her house (up in Grants Pass) and lots of loud house-shaking thunder!

Wow, June already! 6 years ago this date I had my back surgery. Last year on this date I headed to So. Cal with my pal Linda for my granddaughter, Alex's, high school graduation.

Yesterday I had a couple boneless skinless chicken thighs I saved for me, instead of cooking them for Dude. I put them in the small crock*pot and added white wine, Lawry's Garlic Salt, and a small can of tomato sauce. OMGOSH, it smelled sooooooooooooo good cooking!

After they were done I dumped the cooking sauce and  I cooked some angel hair spaghetti. Mixed that with a jar of my homemade marinara sauce (Patterson's tomatoes, garlic, chopped jalapeño, spinach, chipotle olives, mushrooms, and cheesy Alfredo sauce)... and topped it with the chicken. My gosh, that chicken was so moist tender and good. YUMMMM! Musta been the wine, ya think?

My pal Berta called me Sunday and we chatted. She had just seen the Bradley Cooper movie, Aloha.
Berta said she really enjoyed it. It's gotten some mixed reviews, but sounds interesting. Romantic comedy.... What could be wrong with watching Bradley Cooper!!
There is one coming out on my birthday I want to see, starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte...A Walk In The Woods 

Yesterday I ran "5 Miles". We took the trash out and put the can on the road for pick up today. Then I trimmed a couple trees. One down by the trash can that was taking over at ground level and one on my driveway that was smacking my car side mirrors. Then the joy of it all... I paid bills! YUCK! Bad as housework!
Then I had a call from a dear old friend, Brian Cook. He and his brother Bruce both worked with Jerry at Temple Station. We had a great long chat. Thanks for the call Brian! After that, a chat with Steve Voors (he wanted your phone number Brian), Jerry's radio car partner. Then with Jennifer and Mike and a chat with Jeannie ... then Linda. I was a busy phone gal last evening. Fun!!! Then it was TV time (boring) .... and a nap in my chair!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
