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...

12 eggs, beaten
1 bunch green onions, chopped

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.
