I solved the entire world's problems yesterday as I watched the Giants lose another baseball game while I dined on peanutty delicious Oreos!!!
I lounged around a little too long in the morning, hitting Saturday rush hour traffic as I headed off to Turlock to return some makeup. Someone kept whispering cupcakes in my ear, so I pulled over and tried to locate FROST, a small bakery. I knew where it was basically, I just couldn't figure out how to get there.
There's no through roads in subdivisions any more ... I know because I drove through TWO of them with no exits, having to go back OUT the way I came in!! GEEZ!!! Can't go that way, road closed. Can't go THAT way, it's one way. Thirty minutes later, I finally found my way two miles East to their location. CLOSED!! Not only closed, but OUT OF BUSINESS!! RATS!!!
You know when you're just dying for something sweet and there's NOTHING??? What a disappointment, so I went to the quilt store. That wasn't much better .... they didn't have any of the fabric colors I was looking for. Dejected, I drove towards home. I know, I'll hit Walmart! It was fate ... that's where I found the Oreos!!
Back at Buzzard's Roost, I finished the last two squares of this lap quilt. I'll be glad to get it off the wall so I can arrange Black Tie Affair.
With lots of time on my hands, I decided to cook a nice dinner. This is unusual for me .... microwaving something is more my style. I had a beautiful piece of salmon to barbecue, and although I had no idea quite how to accomplish that, I just stuck it on the grill. Stuck is the operative word here. It stuck pretty good before I turned the heat down. At the last moment I threw on some zucchini and whipped up my specialty ... 5 minute couscous from a box.
Served on my best china, it was actually the tastiest meal I've had in awhile!! Luckily, I have enough to microwave for the next two days!!
I have two choices today ... three actually. Tamale tasting in Turlock or quilt conquests in Clovis. The third would be vegging out on the couch with another baseball game. Maybe if I DON'T watch today, they will win!!
