Life is slow but it seems exciting
'Cause Buddy's there.
Gourmet cooking and letter writing
And knowing Buddy's there.

Last post by KathyB - Today at 11:29 am
I am having Lean Cuisine chicken fried rice for lunch because it was in my freezer already. Maybe this will remind me to pick up some real Chinese food. I have not actually had real fried rice in the longest time because I always order brown rice when I order Chinese food. I hope my colon appreciates it.

Daily Threads / 11 August 2020 Sushi Tuesday
Last post by KathyB - Aug 11, 2020, 03:14 pm
I met a friend for lunch today, and we had sushi. It was delicious, if a little pricey. They seemed to be doing a decent takeout business while we were there. It was a nice lunch.

And now I get to go back to having Lean Cuisine for lunch for the rest of the week.

Daily Threads / 10 August 2020 Monday

Happy Monday to everyone who celebrates Mondays. I stopped by Chipotle and picked up a carnitas bowl, which will serve as late lunch/dinner. It is a bit cooler than it was over the weekend, which feels wonderful, although the rest of the week will be in the 90s.

I hate when people leave a number to call but don't say what option to go to when I call back. I spent time being transferred to some random call center because I didn't realize I needed option "4." Fortunately, somebody at the call center was savvy enough to let me know I needed to call the original number and then try option "4." I wish that I could go back and thank that person.

Daily Threads / 09-AUG-2020 Sausage Roll Sunda...
Last post by DiveMilw - Aug 09, 2020, 10:21 am
This morning I finally made the sausage roll I was thinking of making last Tuesday or Wednesday.  I bought the ingredients but either didn't have time, wasn't feeling like baking, or it was too hot to turn on the oven.  This time I sprinkled on some dried Penzey's frozen pizza seasoning before I rolled it up.  I also noticed that I did not cut the mozzarella cheese into chunks as small as I have in the past.  Some of the pieces were bigger than I'd like but a) it was a little late to cut them smaller & b) I thought I'd see what happens.  The store had a beer pizza dough which I tried this time.  Not sure it will make much difference to the taste of the sausage roll but it is fun to try new things.  

Aside from pulling some weeds in the front yard that has pretty much been my day so far.  Now it's time for me to get ready for work.

Have a great Sunday everyone!!

Even though I brought lunch to work, I let myself be convinced to order Jamaican food.  It was very tasty.  

What kind of Chinese did you get Kathy?

I have done the same thing with spilled laundry detergent.  You still need to use to the detergent and you're washing the T-shirt, so why not?

Daily Threads / 8 August 2020 Laundry Saturday
Last post by KathyB - Aug 08, 2020, 10:31 am
Today is my day to finish the laundry that I started on Thursday. I started off the day by dropping a cup of liquid laundry detergent all over the floor, and I decided to wipe it up with a T-shirt, since it was going in the laundry anyway. I realize that's a lame story. I have no other plans for the day other than possibly getting some Chinese food.

Happy birthday to Dustin Hoffman.

Today was a good day as far as weather is concerned.  We had rain in the morning and mid-80s temps during the day.  It wasn't humid.

As far as work goes, today felt like a Saturday.  Lots of people unfamiliar with flying and what you need to do to successfully make your flight on time or check in or that you need to pay to check a bag, etc.  Not a bad day at work but sometimes it can be frustrating.  I was lucky because I worked a mid-day shift today by the afternoon most of those issues went away.  I only had to deal with a delayed flight and after that things went pretty smoothly.
