Darned if it doesn’t feel like mid January around here! 9 degrees out when we got up and a high in the 20s. Brrrr….. Too cold to be outside for people or animals. I did a little rescue today. I was getting a cup of coffee and heard a barking outside. I looked out to see a doggie in our driveway dragging a long leash. I know I have mentioned we live on a busy street and I was worried this guy would get hit by a car. I went out there and he wasn’t interested at all in coming to me. So, I chased him down the driveway and was able to step on his leash to stop him.
He was pretty scared once he was caught. I thought I remembered this dog from a couple blocks away, so I figured I would walk down there and see if that was his owner. On my way there, I met the owner who was out looking for the little guy. She was happy to have him back and then she was complaining about his leash and how he was always getting loose. Wouldn’t you think you would get a different one?? Anyway, I was glad he was safe again.
Lunch time! John had made clam chowder the other day and that sure sounded good on a cold day like today.
Throwback Thursday of a sort: We have been going through the house and getting rid of things we don’t use any more. I about fell over when I saw John had this out.
Flashback to when we first met 20 years ago! He was thinking of donating this since he hasn’t played it in years, but then changed his mind that he wasn’t ready. Same with my horn. I don’t think I will ever get rid of it because it was custom made for me and was such a big part of my life for a while.
I had some of these as a snack. One of John’s poker buddies owns some kind of store and had a bunch of these he gave away.
They are very, very good! I would buy these for sure. (Those are some holiday decals on my nail there.)
Of course, you can’t have a cold day complete without latte time.
Sorry it looks like I am about to give you all the finger there. 😳
I won the football picks last weekend. Go me!! I am leading the season by a fair amount as well. I’ll take a job at ESPN any time they offer – as long as I can do it from home. They could call me the Pajama Pundit! 😀
Anyway, I decided on Recovery Grill since the Broncos are playing tonight and it would be fun to go to a sports bar and get prepped for the game.
There are TVs everywhere with all kinds of sports on. No matter where you turn, you can watch TV 😀
They also have really good food. We love going here. I decided to have a favorite tonight – buffalo chicken fingers!
Level hot – Bet Biz would love these! Couldn’t quite finish these, but I didn’t bother bringing home the leftovers. After dinner, we had to stop at Lowe’s to pick up a couple more pieces of wood. Doing the inserts on the table and I was dry fitting them – some of the pieces are a bit too short. It appears the the 4 quadrants aren’t totally equal.
I am pretty excited about how it’s turning out, though. Hope to get it stained this weekend. With all the snow on the way, it will be a good project to do.
Settling in for the Broncos tonight! Beat those Chargers!!
