Its Saturday and I did not blog Friday. Sorry to those of you who expect every day. Sometimes, no.
We did go out to dinner last night to Club Car. Marika even joined us, a plate full of steamed clams late, having gotten off early. When Em and I got there it was a 35 min wait. Bar was full. So we walked up the street for a cocktail. The bar we went to was quiet and nothing going. We got drinks and about 3 minutes into those the other place called and said table ready. Great. It’s tough work throwing down a double rye old fashion quickly not to mention Emily’s margarita. But we managed.
Back to Club Car. We got our table, sat, and ordered aforementioned steamed clams. I got another drink. I have notice something. I am very good at drinking only one drink. But, I had a double. Once I get that far I note a tendency to continue. From now on, one.
Dinner was great. No complaints. We each had our own car there having come from different directions. So we kinda went home three ways. I went top down since the evening is so nice. Helps to sober up too.
Home. I’m still enjoying the electricity. I took the new generator out of Emily’s car. She picked it up from my Dixon client who sells them. They are a hot commodity right now. Can’t wait to try it out.
Went in the house and went to bed. I’m half drunk and all full.
Em and I slept in Saturday morning. Not much planned. I have to drive to Dixon and give the generator guy some cash. He did me a solid putting me at the top of the list for a new generator so I paid quick.
The morning, once I got up, was the standard crap. Feed animals, make coffee, brekkies, read paper. Shower. Dressed.
After all that, I drove 90 minutes to Dixon. Fun. Saw the man and paid him. His hardware store was jumping. We talked for a few minutes and I took off. Stopped at Starbucks on the way out of town. Their parking lot had 0 spaces open. I had to park somewhere else a ways away. Not sure what’s up with that. But, I got my Nitro Cold Brew to wake me up. I feel better.
Drove to the office. I worked a couple hours. Finished a few tax returns. Grabbed some work and left for home. Can’t stay all day.
Dinner on my mind. I stopped at my favorite meat market in Auburn for a main dish for tonight’s supper. Ended up with a couple choice steaks and some hamburger. Also, fresh teriyaki meat sticks. For the kids. You know.
Got home. Got the steaks prepped. Started the grill. Put the cauliflower tots in the oven and meat on the grill when it was ready. Quite the nice dinner.
After dinner Emily went to bed. I stayed up and finished the work I had brought home. Took two hours. Then I went to bed and finished blogging while the wife snored. End of a fine day.
