Good mornimg. We are enjoying a delightfully cool day today. Right now it is 66F degrees. and will be up to 72F degrees later this morning. The sun is not out yet, and it feels oh so good to walk around outside right now. I went outside a while ago to put out food for the birds and squirrels, and the cool air felt super wonderful.
I set up one of my induction burners this morning to try it out. Alas, after reading the little booklet that came with it, I'm not sure what to do with it now. It has a circle on the top of it, and whatever pan you are cooking in has to fit on or inside that circle. Really? What about a dutch oven pan or a frying pan big enough for more than one hamburger? I guess I have some more research to do before I can begin cooking on the new burners.
Yesterday, Pogo and I went to a local flea market. About all I can say about this outing is that it was great for exercise. We walked from one end to the other, and then got in the car and headed for the park. On the way, we stopped at Burger King to pick up some lunch to enjoy while we watched the water birds.
In the afternoon, I washed the kitchen floor with my "spin mop." Have any of you tried this mop? It's really fun to use. And oh so easy to wring out and clean.
I have to take a break here -- the neighbor across the street is up to no good again..........
I'm back. The neighbor across the street is a constant source of aggravation. Complaining to the authorities doesn't seem to help. Today he has a friend outside with a leaf blower, blowing all the dirt and debris from his yard out into the street, across the street, and into my yard. I took my camera outside and took tons of photos of this happening, then called the police. When the police showed up, I showed them some of the photos that I had taken.
One of the police officers spoke to the neighbor, and then they told me that they had not broken any criminal laws. They suggested that I contact the Safety Office at the police station or the Town Manager at Town Hall. I was told that these two persons could do something about this. We'll see. I'll call tomorrow morning.
On a funny note, I borrowed this "Bathtub Test" from the internet. I figure we can all use a laugh.
The wind has picked up a little bit, and there is a super nice breeze coming in through the storm door. Oh my but it does feel good. There's really not much else news for now, so I'll leave you with another picture puzzle. This one has faces hidden all through the picture. See how many you can find.
Now I think I'll grab another cold bottle of water and catch up a bit on my blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
