    Sure hope you are getting the rest of the pool situation cleaned up. Sorry you don't have a lot of help with it. Would definitely make it easier for you. Enjoy your weekend!

Lots of running around to do today,, went to insurance office to meet new agent,, he left for Detroit ten minutes before I got there,,, I was told not to bother calling before I went there, just stop in.
TDB, I still left payment with office woman,, put the whole shebang on my credit card for points for free gift cards.. i will use these points to buy some big ticket items for the house and for our vacation.
We te Chinese yesterday,, found a new/old place.. New owners bought it six months ago. Teh food is VERY fresh, very good.. service fantatic.. jus ta tiny little place about three blocks from our home,,
I have eaten Chinese food all over, Mexico, Canada, SOuth America, almost every state in the Union, but this has to be teh best or next to it!! Every kind of Asian dish,, Thai, Canton, Szechuan, etc.. Korean,
I usually opt for the snow white pea pod chicken, a light white sauce, just chicken breast, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, pea pods, onion. Low in sodium, little or no fat, hardly any sauce.. with white rice.. yum.. just ate the other half of it for lunch.. two full meals for $7.50!!!

It is a very big treat for us to dine out, but this is one that could tempt me to verge into the sweet and sour thing, lots of salt,etc,, they do not use any MSG either, ..
Back to home cooking today though..

We love fresh veggies with peanut butter for snacks.. I wish my mom had given these things ot us when we were growing up, but they did not do that back then.. no snacks, do not touch anything before sitting at the table for a big meal.. how did life change so much in a half century?

    Way to go on those gift cards LINDA you sure do know your way around a bargain. Good for you.
We never eat chinese food, yours sure does sound great. I love chicken i think i will take a look at what chef MEG was doing with it on the grill. It is definitely grilling time. DH and i are taking our neighbor to the movies. Take care Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Lots of water always hits the spot and keeps me feeling full. Celery is good but I like mine with a light coating of peanut butter or sliced into a meal. May I suggest you stir-fry a colorful mountain of delicious veggies and stuff some of them into a warm whole grain tortilla for lunch. Don't be shy - fill 'er up! You know you'll be hungry later but you've planned ahead. Heat up the rest of those veggies and toss them together with a cup of steamy hot brown rice. I often even add a small bit of grated Parmesan cheese for an extra yum. Having a veggie day like this is so decadently good I feel like I'm cheating!

I hope you had a successful day :)

    Oh my! We kind of write blogs for ourselves though, right? You wrote out all you needed to express and that's got to be good. :)

Pants to the cleaners!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Okay, I am sitting in bed reading at 6a.m. Pouring rain, lightning. All of a sudden a very loud clap of thunder breaks right over the house next door,, about 25 feet from my head! Very loud, loud enough to set off business alarms a half mile away!! They are still alarming!! The lightning was so bright it was like noontime light in my bedroom for a split second!! My whole body came off the mattress and that is NO MEAN FEAT!! taking those pants to the cleaners for sure!! One less birthday to celebrate for me!!!
I heard DD moving around in her bed, so I know it was very loud, as she was sleepign very deeply.

Yesterday was a wonderful day for me. My co-worker was supposed to arrive to buy some pool items at 1 o'clock. She called before 10a.m. and asked if they could come over earlier ,like in a half hour, as they were going to buy a filter hose near me. Fifteen minutes later they show up, buy lots of things I never thought I would sell, I gave them some chemicals and an expensive part,, they were happy,,
Next, scrapguy shows up, spends the whole day tearing down my pool. He filled his whole pickup truck with the scrap... It was sad, but I know it was time,, things change, time marches on, etc,etc..
It was supposed to slightly rain yesterday,, ,, it sprinkled for one minute and that was it.. A couple hours ago, the downpour started. 8:30 a.m. and it is still as dark as when I went to bed last night. I believe we got about a half inch of rain, so far,, DD and I had planned to cut and bundle the pool liner for the trash man, but my heart already had one stop and jumpstart today, I am not going out in this storm for that!!
Now we have about another 500 gallons on the liner and pool cover with the leaves and creatures living in that guk.
Yes, I think the pool thing is done,, on to the next life adventure after I get the hole filled in and prettied up...
SO glad I do not travel on holiday weekends.. Travel and thunderstorms do not mix...

    We did not get any of those storms. They split before they got to us and went north and south of us. Didn't get any rain today either. It was definitely cooler today. So glad that the scrap guy showed up, tore down and loaded his truck. WAY TO GO on your co-worker getting things she needed too!!
Can't wait to see what adventures are waiting for you.

    LOL Lin!!! I hate days like that!! We got the storm later on today, wind, rain, thunder and lightening. Pools of water everywhere. Haven't seen my cat all day. He doesn't handle storms well either... It's thundering again now, so maybe we're in for round two.......
