    Happy Father's Day to all the dads here!


    Not much planned for us - hoping thunderstorms hold off long enough to go to the pool later. I've learned that if it's between 2-7pm, then it doesn't matter what the weather report says. Be prepared for the possibility of rain. Yesterday's rain wasn't all that heavy but it resulted in a double rainbow. It's been a while since I've seen one of those other than in other people's facebook posts. Hubby is in China right now, so we did Father's day before he left.

    I bet your hubby can get really good Chinese food while there

    Chinese food is one of my favorite types of meals

    So nice you all got to celebrate daddy day before he left

    I *LOVE* chicken and cashews, but I can't eat rice any more. Plus, Chinese food in this area of Massachusetts sucks... REALLY bad.. SO BAD... did I say it's bad? Well, it's worse than that.

    Luckily, I found a recipe to make it at home! It's not a bad recipe, I am going to have to tweak it a little the next time I make it.

    So many great Chinese food eateries in Chicago and northern suburbs

    This is one thing I have not found in georgia

    Did try about five places and a couple of them was a waste of money as after some bites, it went in the trash can

    Chuckers I'm not a rice fan either
    Only eat it with maybe 3-4 dishes

    Morning all........

    Another boiling hot and glorious day here..........had the best weekend......out for dinner and drinks Saturday night, then Sunday had 12 over for a big cookout.....DH got to use his new grill.......yep, the one the size of a small car.......there were a lot of jokes about that one!! Was such a fun afternoon and helped it was almost 98f in our garden.......we do have lots of shady areas too. Ate so much food and had plenty cocktails made up........nice weekend though.

    Today has been a bit of housework while its cooler, garden this afternoon under the shade........will be cooler by Wednesday.......

    I love Chinese food........the one we use does use MSG but the owner knows I`m allergic and cooks my meals differently......takes a little longer but worth it......such a good Chinese place to eat.........

    Have a great Monday...........

    Good morning!

    The sun is shining at times, and it's oh so humid again. That will certainly change when that line of thunderstorms comes in this afternoon. But for now, sun and clouds, and 79 at 6am this morning. By the time the storms hit, 90 degrees and over 70 dew point. Oppressive humidity, which will be like gun power for the storms. To cover all that could happen, weather people are saying chance of a tornado, hail, and lots of lightning. The last of that list is what I am not fond of, and will make a fun ride home. Hoping to be home before the skies turn black.

    Your week-end sounded lovely Schumi. Nice that DH's new grill got a workout. News had that London area was as hot as us. Yep, it's the time of year to be outside, and drink.

    Soccer games are done, Next ones will be on the beach, then no soccer for a month. Looking forward to that. And little one kindly left her cleats in my car. I opened the door this morning, and what a smell. Had to take them out and texted her to come get them from the driveway. Ah, the socks she left had a unpleasant odor too, so those were also tossed out of the car.

    So, hope all the homies had a nice week-end, and up and at 'em this Monday.

    Time for tea, iced tea for sure.

    Morning Mac, Schumi and Lynne :wave2:.

    Having a big mug of coffee. Not to motivated this morning. Maybe when coffee kicks in will get there.

    Had a nice barbecue yesterday for Fathers Day. The dads enjoyed their meal and gifts.

    Schumi nice to hear you had great weather for your barbecue and Tom was able to use his big grill to cook. Always nice to have good weather, good friends and good food ::yes::

    It so nice to see the momentum begin to build for HHN. Really looking forward to it.

    Mac wish I had a fast drone to send you some breakfast this morning. Farm fresh eggs, homemade bread with cheery jam and a big mug of coffee......LOL....now I have to get off my keister and go make it.....Hope this gets me motivated to move.

    I'm sure their Chinese food is different than our Chinese food so I'll have to see what he thinks!



    Schumi - Sounds like a great weekend!

    Lynne - Yay for a break from soccer. Before I had a kid do a sport, I didn't understand when parents always mentioned what sport their child did when I asked what the parent did for fun. Kids' sports schedules are no joke!

    Mac - Does that mean you eat bacon once every day?? Mmmm . . . Dunkin Donuts coffee. I rarely get it because it has so much more caffeine than when I brew it myself. (I don't like the taste of decaf so that's out). It's so good.

    Robo - Hope your coffee is motivating you by now!

    The a/c at home won't be checked until tomorrow because the company sends out stupid workers. It's very hard to sleep in an 80 degree bedroom.

    We are in our typical summer weather pattern...even though it's not officially summer yet...well coming in two days anyway. We just had a doozy of a storm at the office...but moved on out. I wonder how the crowds have been at VB with all this rain?

    Mac I like Dunkin Donuts coffee yum.

    Yep! It did. I went out and pulled a few weeds in the garden. It's beautiful outside sun and clouds and breeze out of the North.

    Hubby found a huge turtle in our driveway and asked me for some lettuce to feed it. It was getting near the road so he carried down to our sunken garden. Legs are tired or I would go down and take a pic. Maybe later.


    One to stoke the HHN fires.
