Excitement In The 'Hood And Other Miscellaneous Stuff!

Our street is a very small street...our entire development is only two non connecting blocks. We can't even see the houses down the street but last night...there were firetrucks everywhere! Our street was bursting with hooks and ladders and firemen! Our neighbor either had or thought she had a chimney fire...very scary!

Goldfish Crackers! Did you know that the smallest sized box you can get at Costco still has about a million of these little packages inside! Who knew?

Watching the rain fall down down down!

Happy Saturday! Back on Monday!

What Happened To Thursday?

Yesterday was a day filled with errands! The day totally slipped by me...but a day filled with books.

Just finished this...sort of scary good...every time I turned around...Max...main character...was getting hauled off by the creepy sadistic bad guy and the innocent girl...who is more of a psychopath than anyone! I love books like this!

Plus...I am having MAJOR issues with my new iPad Air many that now it has to go visit the Apple Doctors. It's called a Genius appointment at an Apple Store...they then either fix it or send you home with a brand new replace this brand new one.

Making this for dinner...oven baked Shrimp Scampi...over Whole Foods hand cut spinach linguini...

Reading this...

And this...

I did not post anything on my blog yesterday...Den and I were out all afternoon and because I knew he would be driving around potholes...which are huge here...I took a Dramamine...but...the minute we got home I took a shower and sat down to read and fell asleep! I never do this...I hate napping...but I think the Dramamine did it? I woke up crabby and totally disoriented...and very much out of sorts.

I blame Den!

Happy Friday!

The Wonders Of Wednesday!

Why do I always crave whatever the guest cook makes on the Today Show? Today we are having a yummy beef burgundy ish stew!

Reading this...

Hungry for this...sopprasetta and sharp provolone...for lunch...

One last thought...I was checking over a review...and in spite of checking it over and over iPad garbled an entire's spellcheck but I hate turning it off...
a true case of damned if I do and damned if I don't? Lol...

Happy Wednesday!

Life! It's Somewhat Complicated!

Reading this...descriptions below are from Amazon...all I know is that so far it's incredibly sad...and really absorbing.

“A harrowing exploration of desire and obsession, In Wilderness sends two people into a physical and psychological wilderness that becomes stranger and more terrifying the deeper they go.”—Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train...

And this...

“The story—the writing—stands out as some of the most original and dynamic work I’ve ever read. In Wilderness is an intensely powerful cat-and-mouse love story as gorgeous and brutal as its Appalachian mountain setting. I devoured every word.”—Carla Buckley, author of The Deepest Secret

I just spent a good part of my morning figuring out the stuff of our daily lives...I had a ton of Nordstrom I got this for $45.00!!! How could I have lived a happy life without a 5 1/2 quart braiser?

Then I had to figure out Costco get a voucher for cash back but being the first time users of Costco that we are...we had no clue what the voucher was!

Then I had to figure out how to put Target Gift Promos on my phone. Done...check...I am good!

Then Lucy needs another puffer and her prescription expired because she doesn't need those meds daily so we needed a phone call to the vet.

Then Den and I needed hair appointments.

Then Lucy needed a cold laser appointment...another phone call to the vet.

Then Den needed shaving cream and under eye cream...back to Nordstroms online for that...

Then Den had to stop to get a few things for dinner...making this big salad...

Apparently life is not complicated for these two!

And our lives are uncomplicated again...for now!

Happy Tuesday!

New books...I feel the need to read!

Reading this...described on Amazon as a " modern morality tale". Oh boy!

Den is at work...I have the entire day to myself! The house is under control...dinner is planned and prepped. I love this kind of day! Plus tonite is the Bachelor Finale! I love watching fake relationships that are doomed from the!

There is a Food Network cooking show called The Sandwich King...and I am making/ composing these sandwiches for dinner. I made the meatloaf yesterday. So all I need to do for dinner is "compose" them. Plus it was a chance to buy and use those little crunchy onion things?

Happy Monday!
