Life is going along in the same pattern for us. We are trying to stay cool and avoid the hot afternoon temps. Listening to music in the evenings or watching a movie. Got back into wines again but I have to say I have enjoyed trying new bourbons, listening to music and giving Aja treats.
Watching: Ray Donovan and loving it. We just finished season three and now have to wait for season 4 to go on DVD. The show is packed with action and Liev Schreiber isn’t hard on the eyes either. If you are a fan, wouldn’t you agree the episode Walk this Way from season two was the best one ever! I want to watch it again. We have also watched The 33, a true story about the Chilean miners who were trapped underground for 69 days.
Reading: I read Not Working (it was ok) and attempted The Secret Place. Right now I am captivated by The Twelve by Justin Cronin. It’s been a while since I read The Passage but the beginning of The Twelve catches you up quickly. Doug finished the last book in the series, City of Mirrors, so I can start on that next. Then we can compare notes.
Listening: Can’t get enough of Mark Knopfler, James McMurtry or David Gilmore. We’ve listened to some Big Band era music recently too.
Riding: We rode to St Marks one day and had lunch with our son. It wasn’t planned, we happened to take a day off to get our car windshield repaired and he was also off so….that worked out.
Sadly, The Riverfront Café wasn’t great. It was expensive and we waited forever for warm oysters and warm beer. Horribly hot day too. We are done with The Riverside – last time we had grouper there is was actually Swai. That’s just wrong.
Gardening – nothing going on. It’s dead. Very dead.
I have been enjoying participating in Souper Sunday at Deb’s Kahakai Kitchen.
For this week I want to share a simple throw together grilled sandwich. It’s avocado, tomato, bacon and cheese grilled and melty. When it’s a few days before payday and you don’t want to hit savings, look in your fridge and pantry and see what you can put together.
This isn’t an elegant sandwich, but it is a tasty sandwich and it was way better than anything we could have gone out and spent money on. We tend to eat lunch out on the weekend but bring a good lunch every day to work. Usually leftovers from dinner. It’s healthier and more economical. We decided to forage in the fridge and pantry for lunch instead of getting lunch in restaurant.
Here is this week’s link up. You don't have to post on Sunday.
That's it for me. Just a quick snapshot of what is going on. I hope it's all good in your world!
