A lazy day and Anniversary dinner

First day off after a very long busy week and I was ready for it. Wasn’t ready for the 05:00 wake call I got from a very angry stomach – but once I got that out of the way – I went in and laid back down, fell back asleep  and actually slept in until almost 08:00~! Guess I needed it~! A nice easy start to the day, a nice tasty breakfast that my Bride whooped up and I spent the day mostly on-line, paying bills and doing follow ups with places that needed it.

It got to be close to 4:00 and I started in our anniversary dinner. I fired up the grill and got a couple of baked taters started. I had 2 nice T-Bones resting on the counter, I stripped a couple of ears of corn and got their bath ready and started sautéing some onions and make sure timing was right to getting everything going so it all finished up at the same time (allowing ample resting time for when the steaks come off of the grill as well) A little bit rusty on my grilling, but it came back pretty quick and by 6:00 had what I considered a pretty decent meal put together to celebrate our 43rd anniversary (even though it was last Wednesday). Even had the steak temperatures perfect – which is a bit of a challenge with 1½” steaks and a new grill you’re not real familiar with yet…… but it all worked out. I made some garlic toast to accent the meal and we wrapped it up with some Haggen Das Strawberry ice cream. I hustled up and got the dishes done and the kitchen straightened up so I could hurry up and sit back down with my Bride. Bellies full, we are sitting with the Phillies and Sox game playing in the background. Don’t know who is winning – or honestly care…….

Probably going to do a wonderfully delicious Polly’s breakfast in the morning and do a whole lot more of what we did today. Monday starts what is going to be a taxing day or two for me……. more details as Monday and Tuesday wear on…. Wednesday, my Honeybear and her crew come in – which will be the beginning of what should be an outstanding week~! Lots of fun stuff planned….. but it’ll be great just to have them near us for a while~~ So gonna leave it here for now….. I have some random pictures that I don’t remember if I have shared or not…….

Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
