The great thing about the steam mop--aside from the convenience--is that I felt that the floors were really getting sanitized with the steam. Since I have elderly cats who have accidents....

We are back from New York and am cleaning, doing wash, and taken care of plants before returning to work. It is a beautiful day. I wish I could go to the beach. The play was wonderful. They had a wrap party after the play for 18 of us. I have never seen so much food, all served family style. There were two different salads, calamari, a sampler platter of pastas, penne a la Vodka, chicken Parmesan, eggplant Parmesan, meatballs,and dessert was tiramisu. It is a good thing we had done a lot of walking. I passed on all the pastas and had eggplant parm as my entree which was delicious. I'm waiting until tomorrow to weigh myself.

I have to say getting down on the floor and scrubbing does the best job, but the steam mop is so much quicker and easier which is why I usually do that.

Had to wash my floors with an old fashioned wet mop today!! Hated it, but my lovely steam mop died last week. I have to get a new one, I will not do a mop and bucket indefinitely!

Quick check-in. I have SO MUCH STUFF to get done before we leave on Friday, and my MIL arrives on Wednesday, and I have to spend some time with our friends this week before we go. Plus, you know, working. I have no idea how I'm going to get it all done!

Still kind of dreary--it wants to rain but this being Southern California in the midst of the worst drought we have ever had--not happening!

We met our granddaughter who was getting ready for her play. We aren't going until Sunday. Then we went to a small Italian restaurant. It was wonderful. We split a capresse salad, small order of pasta with razor clams, and calves liver with red onions. The get the buffalo mozzerella weekly from Italy and it was yummy. They make all their own pasta so that was really good. Tonight we are meeting the other grandchildren tonight for dinner. We are going to a restaurant in Chelsea Market.

Barbara I am obviously biased, but I am really proud of here. She wants to go to Pratt, a college strong in the arts. She is hoping this might help her get in, and her parents are hoping it might help land a scholarship.

We did the Venice to Florence part a couple of years ago. I also loved Rome and have always wanted to do the Almafi coast. Enjoy.

Things at work have been crazy. Tomorrow we leave for Manhattan, and I can hardly wait. We are returning on Monday night. Our grand daughter has written, and is producing and directing the play in an off Broadway theater. She is just a junior in high school, and we are so proud of her. It sounds like a lot of people are traveling. Miss G where in Italy are you traveling. Nell your route sounds really interesting with lots of different things to enjoy. I love Penzey's spices. I also order by phone or online.

I LOVE Penzey's Spice! I have ordered for years by catalog and phone, then internet when the internet became the norm. But when they opened a store about a half hour from here, oh my! I love the hot peppers they carry. I use a lot of dundicuts (which I'd never heard of) and they add a marvelous zing to Indian curries.

Just got back from MN Twin Cities. Went to Penzey's Spices when I was there and got a lot of great spices. Several were salt-free spice blends. Can't wait to try them.

I think it is still a little on the humid side out there. I woke up this morning with a sinus headache--which happens like never--and it is still bothering me a little.

We are going to a wedding in Kansas City, but taking the long way through Michigan and Minnesota. 10 days with two dress events. And, I am gathering, wildly disparate temperatures from the Upper Peninsula to Kansas City. Then we'll head down to Hot Springs, Arkansas for some old fashioned pampering before heading home. DH wants to try to see the tuberculosis sanitarium where his father was sent twice. It's in Arkansas, a couple of hours from where he grew up.

Nell, I'm glad you get a trip but sorry that it's so limited now.

We are going to have some limitations in Italy. My MIL is going to be with us, and even though she's completely awesome, she has not been getting any exercise and doesn't have much stamina.

We will drink lots of wine, though! emoticon

I'm starting to pack for our 10 day road trip on Sunday. It has been nearly two years since I have slept away from home that I am nervous about being gone. It's a car trip rather than a motorcycle trip, so I can carry stuff that isn't possible to carry on a bike, though we are traveling in DH's Mini, which doesn't have all that much room. We are only going about 400 miles a day, much less than we used to do on the bikes. DH just can't handle long days anymore, or the discomforts of bike travel, though I so miss the bike trips! He has to use a bathroom every half hour, so being wrapped up in motorcycle gear is too much of a hassle for him anymore. His is in this position because of all those years of refusing to monitor his diabetes, which has resulted in strokes and foot damage. And the damage is to my life, too.

It is supposed to hit 100 here today and be hot all week. We are having a summer all right.

Nell, my radio comes on and if I do wake up, I generally go back to sleep until it goes off!! I prefer to get up fairly early but without any real need to do so, I tend to sleep in later.

Getting up with an alarm clock has become foreign to me in retirement. I don't mind when traveling, but at home it's a pain, even if it's only 15 minutes before I would ordinarily just wake up.

I do that, too. I bought several small steaks and some pork chops recently and packaged them in one portion size packages in the freezer.

It has been muggy, hot and bad air for three days now. Last night I had leftover chicken breast with leftover potato salad. Tonight DH and I are going out for dinner. Tomorrow I am baking for our church coffee hour. I am doing deviled eggs, fruit salad, mini gingerbread doughnuts, and blue berry buckle. I'll figure dinner tomorrow. Rita glad your day with your family was so good. Barbara I try to batch cook, but sometimes I prefer to freeze stuff separately in individual portions and then figure out what kind of a pork chop I want.

Batch cooking is my go-to. I bought 3 pounds of ground chicken this morning with the plan to make chicken burgers which I will then freeze. At least then I get a good serving of protein which is my hardest thing.

I spent 6 weeks cooking just for myself when DH was out of town for the Clarion Writer's Workshop. It was tough. I tended to cook once every three days and eat leftovers.

Another nice day. Work was one technology nightmare after another, and when that happens, I get cranky and frustrated. Tonight will be another night of leftovers. Monday through Thursday I only cook for me. Weekend DH comes out so I do a bit more creative things on weekends. It is hard to cook for one. I try to make myself be more creative, but it isn't easy. Nell I think if I were single and in a facility with other single people, I would also try to organize pot lucks. We do that out here and it is fun. Miss G where in Italy are you going? I ate my way around the country when we visited. I loved it. I am jealous.

It would be odd to cook for one. I think that's why there are so many "younger" women at the continuing care place my mother is in. She's 86, and 10-20 years older than most. Every unit has a kitchen, but few do anything other than breakfast or lunch. They are always hanging out together in classes or the gym, then eating together in the dining room. I can sort of see the attraction. I love to cook, but I like having someone to cook for.

My biggest problem is just not feeling like cooking for just myself. Last night I made a chicken breast, tonight, not sure yet.

Pouring rain here today. We can use it, no doubt.

Dinner tonight is my monthly lawyer meeting, tomorrow is gaming and it's someone else's turn to cook, Thursday we are going over to the home of friends for dinner. No wonder I can't manage to make a menu plan! LOL!

Chefsophie I am doing well thanks for asking and glad you had a good day too! My brother and his wife came out for the day and it is hard to get the family together any more everyone going different directions so very happy they came out!

Hope everyone has a good day?

Sophie, I try to make a menu, but with everything that has been going on, our eating has been haphazard to say the least. We've been out a lot, or over at our friends' home. I get out of the habit of it, then it takes me a while to get back into the swing of things. It hardly seems worth the effort of getting good at it right now, since we leave for Italy in two and a half weeks!

I was surprised that I had a relatively quiet day at work, and I got a lot done. Yesterday was lovely, but a bit windy. Tried to go to the beach, but got blown away. Tonight I am having leftover ribs, baked beans, and potato salad. MissG I make a menu every week, but sometimes change it depending on complexity and ease of cooking. Barbara was it cooler last night. That helps me sleep. Rita hope all is well with you.

I made ceviche last night and it was good, and hit the spot. I slept very well last night, too--I only wish I had a clue as to why so I could duplicate it!

Slow starting Monday. I'm back to having insomnia problems. Argh!

Did some weeding this weekend, which was good. The thistle was threatening to take over the driveway.

I have all kinds of green and leafy stuff from the CSA and am absolutely uninspired as to what to do with it. Have to start cooking regularly again, though. I'm going to try and make a menu using the food I have in the house for this week.

We had fireworks going off around here late into the night. It was a cool night, so all the windows were open. Two cats stayed in the basement, one was unconcerned. She's the one who is afraid of the vacuum cleaner, so go figure. I grew up in Delaware where fireworks were illegal, so I kind of like seeing and hearing them. I'm sure there will be another round tonight. The kids were in school until last week because of snow days, so I'm sure there is an element of summer celebration mixed in with the 4th.

The parade was changed to today as well as the steak fry. It was lots of fun. Having a hurricane come by on. The 4th definitely deterred people from shooting off fire cracker and fireworks. It actually feels a lot quieter than last year which is a good thing as our dog does not like loud noises.

Very noisy last night! One cat was hiding behind my chair all night as a result. This morning when I went out, I found that they had been setting the fireworks off at the end of my block--it was covered in debris!!

I got my new knife block yesterday and it's one huge hunk of wood. I hate having to have one that size, but at least it holds my wide knives.

What a beautiful day after the rain moved out this morning! I walked, cleaned half the house, and I'll put a couple of burgers on the grill tonight. When I first moved into this neighborhood there was a family who bought half price fireworks on July 5th and we had our block party then. They're long gone now and no one has picked up the tradition.

Well the weather predictions proved accurate. Fireworks moved to Saturday as well as the parade and steak fry. They did have the picnic last night, and that was fun. Watching the little kids try to master croquet was so much fun. Lots of people showed up. I had planned to do a 4th of July dinner tomorrow, but now it will be tonight. It has rained hard since ten this morning. I am making old fashioned Boston Baked Beans, potato salad, and ribs. Miss G sorry your husband was sick for his birthday. Barbara the cookout you are planning sounds delicious.

Too bad on his birthday!

Dinner with my son was very good, food and conversation-wise. He is coming over tomorrow for our usual holiday bbq. That's going to be a marinated chicken breast, hamburger, and grilled vegetables--eggplant, sweet potato, green pepper, red onion and zucchini.

Ocean City, Maryland just postponed the fireworks celebrations until Saturday. They don't want people pouring into the town for fireworks when they may have water cleanups to do.

Barbara I think it is coming up the whole east coast, but I think it is mostly rain north of North Carolina. Your dinner sounds like a lovely summer meal
