Yeast Rolls with Rosemary and Sea Salt
With an egg and a couple pieces of bacon, it made for a nice breakfast.
Still, I was looking forward to it, still laughing from photos of a little surprise that waited for me. You see, Partner in Grime had this horrifically cheap and ugly blue ceramic lamp in the bedroom of his bachelor quarters that I absolutely hated, and it didn't go away when we got married, despite my having a large dowry of muffin tins, reloading supplies and lamps (no cows though).
For waiting for me at the Range would be:
gloves to protect from flying glass
For it's been a stressful time lately, in the world, in my own.
But there were some bright spots in the weekend, even if spent alone.
People are still buying and reading the Book of Barkley which brightens my whole world (and helps with Dad's nursing expenses) Plus, there were 2 more requests for autographed copies, that came into the Wild Hare Enterprises mailbox including one. . .
For Chewbacca. Yes, Peter Mayhew, the actor that portrayed him in all the Star Wars Movies. He has a rescue dog named Scout and we have mutual friends. I was offered payment for the book and declined. The Wookie will never pay for a book on my watch.
Peter - I skipped school to watch you in Star Wars in 1977. Best decision ever! Thank you for our support of the rescue dogs. LBJ
Chewie brings back a lot of memories, and not just of the movie.
Then it was time to curl up with some reading of my own. Old NFO 's novel The Grey Man - Payback. I was a beta reader for the scientific/forensic bits (though apparently my instructions for measuring body height for a headless body were a little too detailed, and Jim just referenced some "formula" in that edited bit that totally made me smile.)
Its' a wonderful, riveting read, better than anything I've savored this summer of it's type (action, adventure, law and the West). It's even better than the first one, so hold on to your hat and go to Amazon and simply type in the title to order one now, or click on Old NFO's web link above to order.
Now Back to our Usual Programming. Pineapple Chicken from scratch.
Looks like it's just going to be you and I this weekend, Abby.
Maybe I can carve a pumpkin for the side table. Perhaps one like this.
The conservation club was deserted.
Still, there's just something about the golds of Fall against the last green remnant of summer.
Gunpowder and Bread. Even alone, I've got family and friends. It's all good.
