yesterday - Lidia would have been proud. :-)
I heated olive oil in the pan and added one large onion and cooked it till it started to brown. Then made one of Lidia's hot spots and added about 7 cloves of garlic. Mixed the garlic in with the onion and cooked until nicely caramelized.
Then added celery, a small zucchini and yellow squash cut up.
Today's walk was cloudy and looked like it was about to rain so I took along my umbrella. It never did rain but I'm sure it would have if I'd left my umbrella home. :-) I walked around the lake and came across two Canada geese families eating on each side of the path. Both dads were keeping a good watch on their families. I had to run past them because they both came up to me making quite a fuss and chased me!!Yesterday I wrote about the water fountains that are around the lake. There are also these water places too which has an orange cooler inside with ice water. Note how close the trash can is and the cup on the ground between the water and the trash!!!
A while back I took this picture of the tree planted by my townhouse and asked if anyone knew what kind it was. We couldn't seem to figure out what it was. Well now that berries have come out, it looks like a Blueberry Tree. I know they usually grow on bushes but these sure looks like blueberries. I tasted one and it tastes like one too. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
That house cleaning I was going to get started early today once again got put on the back burner. Cheryl called and we planned a lunch out for today. She arrived here at my house around 10:30 and we stayed here until 11:00 and then walked the 2 blocks up the road to LeeLynn's. We shared a club sandwich and eggplant slices with some of their own special chips. As always I enjoyed my time with Cheryl. :-)
After Cheryl left I actually did get some house cleaning done!! Not a lot, but I made a good start. I did the big bathroom upstairs and our bedroom. Sometimes other things are just more important than cleaning the house! :-)
It's heading for 4:00 and here I am writing this. After I get done here, I'll sit in a chair and either read or knit for a while.
Hope your Thursday is one of those days you wish you had more of.
Jesus should be your steering wheel, not your spare tire.
