It's a gorgeous morning!!!!8:57 AM
We've had thunderstorms for the past 2 days and it feels wonderful, it's been so hot lately that the rain coming down is a welcome sight....of course the humidity it brings is not that great, but I'll sacrifice some clammy feeling skin for it.
It's a gorgeous morning, the sun is peeking through the gray clouds and there's some droplets still left on the green grass. You can still smell the rain, is there anything better than that???
So what have I been up to around here???
Yesterday I worked on my computer, installing a new hard drive with 300GB because well, I'm a girl and I tend to download so much stuff that after a while it starts slowing down dramatically. I swear, the more space you give me, the more I use. So anyway, Curt installed the new hard drive for me and then I spent the day cleaning up old files, deleting programs that are no longer needed etc. Computers are like a house, you have to keep up with them.......I admit, I'm bad about it though, there's months that go by without a second glance at the recycle bin or anything else. Bad bad bad!!!!
The first one was definitely anger, the minute I saw the terrorists right at the beginning of the movie and KNEW what they were about to do, anger overwhelmed me, I have never felt so much resentment for someone. This is not a movie for the faint of heart, it brings back way too many memories from that dreadful day.....the images replaying of the second airplane hitting the towers put me right back on September 11, 2001. Tears rolled down my face and I felt like I had been punched in the gut repeatedly....but I made it through the whole movie and ended with an enormous feeling of love and pride for the passengers and crew aboard Flight 93.
They literally "fought to the death".
Anyway, I spent a while in the kitchen too, fixing some Crab Rangoon for dinner. They do take a bit of time to make but they're well worth it....add a salad and you're good to go. I still have a at least a dozen left so that's what we'll be having for lunch.
I used Wonton Wrappers for these and when I look at them they remind a lot of Samoosas, a popular indian street food. I remember eating them a LOT back in South Africa, it was one of our favorite treats......I haven't had them in years so I think it's time to make some, I will post the recipe for you all next week.
For dinner tonight I have some Pork Ribs in the CrockPot. I added some salt, pepper, garlic and a bottle of beer, layered the ribs with some sliced onions and set it on low for 8 hours. It smells heavenly right now, I can't wait for dinner time!
I've got the dishes done and I'm halfway through Mount Laundry, it's days like these that I wish people were allowed to walk around naked. It would save so much money, not just on clothes but on laundry detergent, water....get the picture??? LOL
Yesterday, today, tomorrow. Past, present, future. Through time and space, one man embarks on a bold 1000-year odyssey to defeat humankind's most indomitable foe: Death. Hugh Jackman plays that man, devoted to one woman (Rachel Weisz) and determined to protect her from forces that threaten her existence. His quest leads him to a Tree of Life...and to an adventure into eternity.After that one I think I'll watch The Illusionist, I've heard such great reviews about the movie.
So there you have it, that's what I have planned for today. I'll also be getting some reading in, the Tucker Mills Trilogy and Julia Quinn's "Dancing at Midnight". Am I the only one that has 2 or 3 books going at once???? I wish I could just grab one and stick with it but I tend to loose focus or get bored and then I have a book in the kitchen, one in the bedroom, one in the living room.....reading them all at the same time. It doesn't seem to bother me, though I would think it would become confusing. What can I say, I have a passion for books like nothing else....well maybe, cooking.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone, I leave you with one of my favorite songs. Enjoy!!!
