Day 2 of my 2 day staycation….I made us birds in a nest for breakfast, and I had a two BIG cups of coffee alongside. Boing!
I spent a good portion of the day hanging out in a hospital with a buddy of mine who was admitted yesterday. I was glad I happened to have a day off to go for a visit and happy to report she’s doing well. Just a little tip….if you ever need to cheer people in hospital up, give them a set of wind up chattering teeth with crazy eyes. Patients laugh, surgeons laugh, other friends laugh…Works every time…and yes, I am childish!
On the way back to where I’d parked the car, I met a few new ‘friends’.
I did a double take when I saw this “bear” in bushes on the hospital grounds. I was on the phone to Dennis as I walked by…and said “omg, there is a bear here”. Poor Dennis, thought I meant a REAL bear.
Then, I saw this German Shepherd jumping around and “chatting” to the sidewalk. His owner was there and apparently this is regular behavior, he thinks his shadow is an enemy…so when the sun shines, he goes on the ‘attack’. Poor guy, summers must be VERY stressful.
THEN…I met this little 8 week old golden lab “Luigi”. CUTEST puppy!!! And he LOVES having his belly rubbed. I want one…
…just kidding Neva, you don’t have to share your paper bag “toy” with a dog!!!
When I got home, I toasted a bagel thin and topped it with light cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers.
Later on, I had a little of Dennis’ Red Hook Long Hammer IPA, that we bought at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago…..
….the words on the label appealed to my juvenile and vulgar sense of humour. heh, heh….
We also had a few leftover dolmades from last night.
Because I ate lunch quite late, then had a snack I wasn’t very hungry, so eventually had a chicken wiener with mustard, relish and pickle and a pack of weight watchers crackers.
And nothing pairs more beautifully with a wiener than a little leftover white wine from the night before…HA!!! Gourmet I’m not!!! And I’m so ok with that!
The last pic of the day I’m going to post was taken from our deck. Dennis described the skies today as a “good cloud day”. Not always sunny, but REALLY pretty, sometimes dramatic and very photogenic.
Cheers (with leftover wine) to a good weekend!!!!
