Good 47º super foggy 87% humid morning.
The sun actually came out yesterday about 2pm. Several fawns and a doe were out enjoying the grass. A couple were napping, snuggled together, but couldn't get their picture...
Breakfast ... simple. Plain Greek yogurt and yam.

A couple of thieves. A couple of liars. And people WANT her to be President? It is beyond my comprehension!!!!
Yesterday another exciting one... cleaning, vacuuming, etc. Whoop! But, then I decided to make some soup. Brian's Jen had given me several Harry & David soup mixes.
I also decided to add in more "stuff"! Part of the recipe is tomato sauce and I also added artichoke hearts, sliced olives, dehydrated peas and mushrooms. Only about 1/2 the can of artichoke hearts got in the soup, I ate the rest before adding them!!!
Into the Crock*Pot casserole on high for 3 hours. Then in went the tortellini...

When I sit in my chair and play solitaire on my iPad the Bruiser likes to sit in front of the screen and watch the cards flip around!
So, it was chair, wine, and TV. No, I didn't watch the Grammys. Had a great phone conversation with Jennifer, one with Linda, one with my sister Betty, and with Trish. Thanks ladies!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

National Almond Day
Friends live in Chico, Ca. They always called them "amonds"... no L. That is because they said, the almond tree is shaken and the almonds drop off. Once that happens they've had the "L" knocked out of them!
Which reminds me of a funny.... my mother-in-law, Winona, pronounced salmon with the L! She called it "sal-mon" which cracked Jerry and I up.
