A busy week of long overdue yard work & house work, capped off with dinner at BBs. Missing our peaknuckle pardners.
Last workday of the year!
….well, sort of…. I will be on call for work client emergencies during Christmas. Come to think of it, i got stuck with oncall last christmas as well. Crikey. Oh well. Nothing could go wrong, right?!
Anyhow, that will not dim my unbridled anticipation of turning on my out-of-office email message in a few short hours.
That makes today a VERY special TGIF for me.
I hope you have a great Friday, too.
I’m on vacation, …
Channelling Aunt Voula.
We have lots of funny movies we love to quote for moments that would only be funny to others that share a love for the same movie humor….. from Caddyshack, Captain Ron, The Princess Bride, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Young Frankenstein, to name a few. One movie quote that comes to mind tonight is from My Big Fat Greek Wedding:
Aunt Voula: What do you mean he don’t eat no meat?!
[the entire room stops, in shock]
Aunt Voula: Oh, that’s okay. I make lamb. 🙂
Yesterday Monte de-boned and marinated a leg of lamb, and tonight he put it on the grill. Add some quick pasta and insalata caprese (with basil and tomatoes fresh from the garden), and VOILA! I think Aunt Vuola would approve.
Oh, and also: TGIF!! It’s been about a month since we’ve been out to the lake, given our travel schedules. Tomorrow we will make up for lost time.
Whew, what a long week. Monte has also had a long and HOT week, working in the shop all day, every day this week in 100 degree temps.
I was happy to hear the blender fire up at about 5:30.
TGIF, and have a great weekend everyone!
I’m glad Friday is here. It’s been a long one.
Rachel baked Julie a cake for her birthday. We went to Musashino for dinner, and then had birthday cake for dessert.

Another week flown by. Got a lot accomplished, but lots more to do.
I had a bit of an inspiration-less day today. Meetings start at 6:30 every day, and run through the early evening. It’s refreshing when I can finally log off for the day.
Walking around outside seems to take bit of the fogginess out of my head. I know I’ve been posting lots of flower pics, but I enjoy sharing them. Here is another zinnia.
I really like this Canon PowerShot D10. I’ve found it takes great close up shots. But, not so great wide shots. Or, it could be me. I think it’s time I dig out the manual. Maybe I’ll flip through that this weekend.
Tonight we are enjoying a quiet Friday night at home. We’ve got the original “Flipper” movie queued up on the DVR. Yes, that’s right — the 1960’s movie about the dolphin.
Oh, by the way… just 6 months from today until Christmas (!)
