Beginning the Weekend

27 Jan

Every Friday to begin the weekend the people on our circle get together to play bocci. It’s a league with friendly competition.

We take it very seriously and often have to measure.

But the best time is when the servers bring the drink orders. Maybe that’s why our team loss again.

Finally Friday

26 Jan

I can’t believe that it is the end of January! Where does the time go? It’s been a busy month, redoing the guest bedroom, having to paint baseboards and living life. It seems like just yesterday that we were getting ready to move to Florida from New Jersey, that was 17 years ago. I’m a Florida native!

Yesterday I tried making a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. I saw it as a skillet cake on William Sonoma’s website and changed it to a heart shaped cake as a test for Valentines Day rather than the skillet.

For dinner was the ever popular new recipe of Salmon with Pesto Butter, bake potatoes and steamed broccoli. Max’s broccoli from his father’s farm was great!

I have a busy day, oil change and bocci.


What is your favorite way to cook salmon? Do you have a favorite fish?

Who is your Friday shaping up?

It’s raining…

23 Jan

This time of year it is usually bright sunshine and 78*. Not today! Today it is overcast and a light rain is falling, drizzle my Mother would call it.

I now have three things on Craig’s List. Two lamps and the Desk but other than scammers no one wants them.

Lunch was the leftover Roasted Tomato Soup and a Tuna Melt with Jack Cheese and a little pasta salad.

Sunday Sailing

23 Jan

Sunday, our good friends, Tony and Cris, invited J and I to go sailing on their Hunter 39 sailboat “Wild Again”. As you may or may not know I owned a sailboat, a Hunter 25.5 and raced it in the Delaware River. So anytime someone wants me to sail, I’m up for it!

Their boat is in Burnt Store Marina, which is 45 minutes north of where we live. Upon arrival we saw this….

This Osprey was eating his lunch and was not at all afraid of the plastic owl the boat owner had put on his mast.

Sailing is quite relaxing once the sails are hauled and the motor is off.

Even to the point of being bored and looking for entertainment as Tony did…see below video.

Here is just a 30 second taste of sailing.

We arrived safely back at the marina just before sunset.

What is it?

Ok you tell me what ate this raccoon!
