There was a couple of little things, but none were worth writing home to Mom about. I had CAKE for breakfast, that was fun! Somebody's got to eat that cloud of strawberry deliciousness.
Mostly, I just sat around waiting for the Giants baseball game against the Dodgers to begin. With rain still falling until around noon, I couldn't plant anything in the yard. I wandered around the house trying to come up with something other than dusting the furniture, to no avail.
I made up a list of all the things I want to photograph, like the Painted Ladies in San Francisco and the beach in Monterey, all of which are a good two hours drive away. I got as far as the tiny grocery store a mile from my house to pick up sesame oil for a Korean BBQ dish I want to try.
Once the game started, Cooper, Jessie and I were entrenched on the couch for the rest of the day. After the first ten minutes when the Dodgers got 5 runs to zero, I wanted to turn it off! Instead, I began texting my old baseball buddy Peter. We kept ourselves occupied through the first few innings until the Giants made a HUGE comeback ... home run after home run. Whew!! We won ... but that was close!
It felt good to be back in baseball! I was a diehard season-ticket-holding fan for ten years before the "big breakup" which killed my enthusiasm for baseball (and just about everything else) completely. It's been eight years and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy a good game, whether at home or at the park!!
Time for dinner, I made a GIGANTIC mess with oil spatters in the kitchen when I browned a pork tenderloin, then tossed it in the oven to finish off. This one is pretty hard to mess up ... it came out very nice, accompanied by roasted brussels sprouts. The leftovers will become Korean BBQ even though the recipe calls for beef. Stay tuned for THAT one!
Just for the heck of it I got on the internet and checked out properties along the coast of California. Ha!!! No worries about me moving there! I couldn't find anything under $850,000 with 90% of them listed at over $1million. I closed my computer and went to bed.
Here's hoping today is a little more exciting!
