Some how I managed to come down with a nasty cold. I had to go to work, but I really want to go home, crawl under the covers and sleep.

It looks like a another beautiful day. Getting ready to leave to head toward the ferry. I need to do a few errands. Then meeting DH for lunch at an oyster bar we like before going to get the 3pm ferry. Nell the people attending were really nice so that made the class more fun. The results were our lunch. The recipes were a cold pepper soup with a cilantro colli, a niscoi salad topped with grilled salmon, a mango, almond, romain salad with a raspberry vinaigrette, and a fettuccini primavera salad with procsutto. Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday.

Well yesterday was horrible with staff melt downs and drama. I left exhausted and got up this morning exhausted. Fortunately I am going to the mainland tomorrow afternoon. I need a break. Friday I am taking a cooking class on spring soups and salads. That should be fun. We will return on Saturday for a Kentucky Derby potluck. Tonight I am going to make a hamburger. Nell I hope you got your cards. Rita enjoy your Thursday.

Hubby complained about dinner last night. He doesn't like meat that he has to chew more than 5 times, but now he says he doesn't like meat that is cooked in liquid. Now he says he doesn't like cooked onions or bell pepper. The list of food he hates gets longer.

I'll be getting new credit cards in a few days. Soon I'll have to deal with the Costco American Express, which will be terminating next March. Amex has the most wonderful customer service, I'll hate to lose it. Costco will be using a Citi Visa.

Tonight was beans and rice. A nice comfort meal after a stressful day.

My Mastercard was compromised so it's canceled. It will be a week until they can send new cards, leaving me with just Amex, and not all places take Amex. So much for the super secure chip cards. It is Home Depot again that allowed my card to be stolen.

Quiche tonite. Son #3, his wife and the two little grandkids are coming for brunch tomorrow. I baked cinnamon bread today for french toast. I have 8 slices staling on a rack now. Homemade bread makes the best french toast; there are no preservatives so it stales perfectly. DIL is vegetarian and doesn't want the smell of bacon in the house, an enticing smell to me. Oh well.

I got back from my hair appointment at 4:30 and had to get to a meeting by 7, so I didn't cook tonight. The advantage of not having kids around! Hubby was on his own. I had a bowl of cereal.

It was a busy day, and never got lunch. My plan is to reheat some leftover tuna noodle casserole for dinner. Tonight when I went to leave the office, my car was locked. I never lock my car. I asked a co-worker to drive me to my place to pick up a spare key. When we tried to get there every access road was cut off as they had resurfaced the street. We finally moved the barriers so we could get on the street. It could be called extra and an unexpected exercise opportunity. I got the key, went back to the office, got my car, and when I got back, they had replaced the barriers again. So that was unexpected exercise opportunity number 2. Of course as we started out on our adventure it was lovely, but quickly it started to rain, and of course I didn't have a jacket. I guess May showers are here.

No clue what I am doing for dinner tonight!

I am not sure if I mentioned it, but Friday night I broke my little toe--again. I had broken the same one some years ago. This time not as badly though. It is several lovely shades of black and blue today and very sore to walk on. The worst part of this is that I can't exercise for at least a week (especially since it hurts so much). And I am in such a bad place with the weight, trying to get going in the right direction again.

Another sunny day. Not as warm, but no wind. The Briyani recipe I used yesterday was great. Definitely a repeat dish. I am making a tuna noodle casserole for dinner tonight. I make it with a Greek yogurt sauce. Enjoy your Sunday all

I didn't realize how long it had been since I checked in. Nell so glad the trial is over without bad consequences. I like to add puréed butternut squash to Mac and cheese as well. Barbara the chicken with rice and spinach sounds great. Rita hope you are unpacked. It was a beautiful day today. DH and I took the dog to the beach for a walk at low tide. It was wonderful to finally get outside and get some fresh air. Dinner tonight is lamb briyani made with leftover Easter lamb I froze and lamb stock I made from the bone. It's in the oven now. I hope everyone is doing well.

Crab salad last night, not my best effort, and expensive failure.

Off to Wegman's today to pull in provisions for the weekend.

Off to the post office. Virginia never cashed my mother's check for 1Q estimated taxes that I mailed on March 18, so I have to send another check. This one is certified, return receipt.

Tonight was mac and cheese. I always put broccoli and cauliflower in with the elbows for the last 2 minutes before draining. A WW idea, and yummy!

I made some country style pork ribs on Sunday which were really good. I have leftovers still, but I decided that I want chicken for a change. No idea what I will do with it yet. I did cut a recipe out of last week's paper for Greek style rice and spinach which sounds pretty good. Maybe I'll do that with just browned chicken.

I couldn't eat let alone cook on Sunday night. Last night it felt good to make a normal dinner. I should have gone to the grocery store yesterday afternoon when it was warm and sunny, but I hadn't really planned on it because I thought I wouldn't be getting home until mid afternoon. It's raining today but I don't care. The trial is OVER!

Neal my thoughts and prayers will be with you.. But sometimes our system works and you will be able to remove the items and start over again? We took care of a building complex and we had to take tenants who fell behind on rent and sometimes the judgement was fair and sometimes it was not? So hang in there it soon will be over with?

Wow that is quite a situation. I would be totally stressed out. It seems like you were justified, but right doesn't always rule so I'll be praying it all goes well for you.

We fired a maintenance man last September, a man who had purchased a unit there, then short saled it to his uncle and stayed on as a tenant. The new maintenance guy found that he had used his shop as extra storage, storing what looked like his son's entire household of stuff. His son had just gotten out of prison, and he, his wife and two kids had just moved in with him. He also had created a massage parlor in a closet space. We found a set of brass knuckles sitting on top of one of the bags, so the board decided to have all of it removed to the dump, rather than risk letting them back in and finding that there were weapons secreted in all the boxes. The daughter in law wants $9000 in compensation. One of the items she listed as hers is a treadmill that belongs to another unit. Tomorrow a judge will decide if we had the right to dispose of the stuff rather than give them 24 hours to remove it themselves. Probably along with all of our tools.

I didn't eat tonight, too wound up. I feel like I'm on trial. Oh wait! I am!!

I can't believe I have been absent so long. I survived Easter with our dinner and the coffee hour for church. Did the leftovers in cubes and froze them so we can have a curry and an Indian dish. I also made some lamb stock in the slow cooker to use when I make those dishes. Work has been crazy, and then I was supposed to come back to the mainland on Thursday, but was too sick to leave. I crawled back on Friday for a hair cut appointment. Saturday we had tickets for the symphony and had dinner with friends first. I had a wonderful light lamb ragu over a fresh papperadelle. It was delicious. Leftovers will be dinner tonight. We spent Saturday and Sunday working on taxes. Finally done, but not happy with what we had to pay. I made a multigrain French Toast with mixed berries for brunch today. I haven't had French toast in years. It tasted great. Made smoked apple wood bacon for DH, but did have one piece. Tomorrow I have an eye doctor's appointment and then take the 4:45 ferry back. Nell what is the trial concerning. I would also be obsessed. Barbara did you enjoy the Seder? Rita your walk sounded lovely. Today was the first day we have had that I was willing to go for a walk. Rusty sorry to hear about your son's deployment. That has to be stressful. Well need to go.

And it is cold today!! I actually had to put the heat on yesterday and again this morning because the house was so chilled.

Rusty, how long will he be deployed? I remember when I waved goodbye to my then husband as he left for Vietnam, and he told me to be grateful that deployments were only for a specified length of time. During WWI and WWII they left until the war was over, no idea when that would be.

This morning I will be meeting with the condo lawyer to prepare for next Monday's trial. Then tonight we will be eating at Cracker Barrel with the motorcycle club, the only day of the month that I eat out.

hi

just stopping in to see how everyone is doing. Needed a lift tonight my son just deployed and is flying as we speak to the middle east. so My goal is to be a lot smaller than I am now when he comes home. He says he wants me to be healthier. I promised I would work on it.

I ate too much and really am way too full to eat again today. And I didn't eat all that much. There was a lot of food but it wasn't the extravaganza it's been in the past. I'm looking forward to a normal day tomorrow.

I don't do anything for Easter--I usually make a ham for my son and myself, but it is harder and harder to get scheduled in with him! (Not complaining). Now that he is dating a Jewish girl, the ham isn't going to happen at all, since she has never eaten pork!

The new maintenance man did what I told him and got the right people to figure it out. It's a tough job to learn in less than a week, but he is going to be great!

Just got back from church. This is the biggest church day of the year for all the churches, and the cops are going to be spread pretty thin keeping traffic moving. It usually takes 2 minutes to get home, it took 10 today so I'm not complaining.

Soon I'll head over to my mother's continuing care community for their big Easter brunch. It's always a big spread so I'll have a taste of a lot of food, but not the desserts. I'm not planning on cooking tonight, I'll be too full.

Happy Easter everyone!
