Fog ~ Snow ~ Hawk ~ Jerry & Sue's Famous Chorizo-Egg Burritos ~ Nike Logo ~ Exciting Day

Good  37º  foggy morning.     

The sun never showed yesterday. We topped at 41º.         
The fog was depressing (again)... looks the same today so far...

One year ago today we had snow!

I went into the kitchen to make some coffee and outside on the porch railing was a red-tailed hawk! I didn't have my camera, dang, and I knew if I moved he'd quickly fly away! He walked around for a bit and then he flew away.... Looked like this one:

That Lemon Blueberry Dump Cake was WONDERFUL!!! Gobble gobble.... oink!

This is a recipe Jerry and I made often...
Jerry and Sue's Famous Chorizo-Egg Burritos

1 pound pork or beef chorizo - soft kind
12 eggs, beaten
1 bunch green onions, chopped
sour cream
flour tortillas
grated Cheddar cheese
dice green chilis
and/or thin sliced jalapeños
salsa if you like
Heat non stick skillet to medium. Cut the casing on the chorizo and squeeze into pan. Cook until it appears to all melt. Add eggs to mixture. cook, stirring for scrambled, until all eggs are cooked.
Heat tortillas (in microwave or on hot flat surface). Fill with chorizo/egg mixture, sprinkle on green onions,add dollop of sour cream, some diced chilis, and cheese. Roll up and enjoy. If you are making them for a crowd, wrap in aluminum foil and keep them in the oven at 170º.

This is interesting:

The Nike "Swoosh" is a corporate trademark created in 1971 by Carolyn Davidson, while she was a graphic design student at Portland State University. "I don't love it," Knight told her, "but I think it will grow on me." For her services, the company paid her $35. In 1983, Knight gave Davidson a golden Swoosh ring with an embedded diamond, and an envelope filled with 500 Nike stock to express his gratitude. The Nike "Swoosh" is now one of the most recognized brand logos in the world.

 The day was so exciting. I cleaned out a bunch of stuff from my desk and shredded it.

I paid my estimated state tax payment. I took the trash and recycle stuff to the cans down by the road. I found some photos to send my nephew. And I washed a load of clothes and vacuumed. Over the top!

Then it was time to figure out what to eat for dinner prior to chair, wine, and TV. And no, not the Hollyweirdo Golden Globes! 

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Bubble Bath Day

Today is Bubble Bath Day! People have been enjoying warm baths for thousands of years. In Ancient Rome, bathing at a public facility was part of the daily routine for most citizens. A trip to the Roman baths might include a dip in the caldarium (hot tub), a brief break in the laconicum (sauna), and a refreshing swim in the frigidarium (cold pool).
Up until the late 1940s, the average American bathed once a week for personal hygiene. Today, a daily shower is standard, but it’s important to indulge in a luxurious soak every once in awhile. A bubble bath can help open up your pores, cleanse your skin, and relax muscles.
Pick up a bottle of your favorite bubble bath product and fill your tub tonight to celebrate Bubble Bath Day! Create a calming spa atmosphere with background music, candles, and a towel to cushion your neck. Enjoy!
