In the midst of the cyclone that is this house–the detritus of planning and packing for my Merchant Mariner’s long assignment–it’s as good a time as any to share a little gratitude, this time to everyone who submitted recipes for the “last meal”.
It was dark and extremely foggy when we made the thirty-five minute drive to the airport at 5:30 a.m. It takes a day and a half for my tugboat man to reach his ultimate destination, and he was worried that a delay could mess everything up, but he just called to let me know he arrived at the first leg of his journey with enough time to catch the next flight.
I should be cleaning but I’m sitting on the sofa watching Jewelry Television based out of Tennessee. It’s fun to watch the low budget sets and extremely nasal Southern accents of the hosts. I promise…just five more minutes and I’m gonna start on the mess. Do I really NEED 3.20 carats Round Mystic Topaz stud earrings? Do I? They’re $39.99. I think NOT. Really. It’s a little too soon to justify any retail therapy.
We walked to the beach before the Superbowl–a six-mile round trip. This is what the sun looked like. WTF???
When we got home from our walk, I prepared Guapola’s Stuffed Mushrooms and Benzeknees Spinach Salad along with Guacamole and Vegetarian Refried Beans with Flax Seed Chips from Trader Joe’s. He loved all the yummy food!
OK, the dishes aren’t going to wash themselves, are they?
A little tugboat music…
