I highly anticipated the rain forecast for yesterday. I even did a little rain dance to ensure some moisture. I was so excited when it clouded over and I heard thunder. Well, thunder and lightning do not rain make. At least not here. It rained all around me for a couple of hours, causing flood watches in Tucson, but not a single drop of the wet stuff hit here. Temps got all the way down to 80 though!
In between watering the plants myself and watching Zoo stories on television, I finished this small quilt. I like it so much I just might have to make a bigger one.
I certainly did NOT anticipate almost stepping on this guy. They are usually so secretive I rarely see them, let alone get a picture. He was about ten inches long ... a real brute!!
I decided to wait until today to move the old bed out, so that got scratched off my list, but there was a baseball game on. Not having seen anything since the All Star Game, I was almost in withdrawal. Now I am for sure since Fox Sports chose NOT to show the Giants game. I realize they are in last place, but still ... you ADVERTISED it was on your schedule. Instead, I made two pillowcases for my new bed.
Since I keep seeing people fry fish for dinner on their blogs, I thought I would give it a shot. Boy was I anticipating THIS yummy dinner. I picked up a piece of delicious fresh cod. My mouth was watering.
That quickly went out the window. I didn't batter it because of the diet thing ... no flour ... so I just fried it. Who knows what temperature it was ... I sure didn't. How long do you leave it in there? I didn't know that either. In the end, it all fell apart and was the greasiest thing I've ever eaten. Such a disastrous mess, I didn't even take a picture.
I really did try to eat a piece or two. It tasted like greasy grease. Biggest cooking fail in a long time! I think I'll leave the fried fish to the experts!!
On my way to the trash can, I had another visitor at the water station. I'll leave you with a little bit of anticipation and post the pictures tomorrow. Right now, I'm in bed-moving mode!!
