It is a soggy Friday! Rain, rain and more rain. And warmth - it was 63 this a.m. That will, of course, change and we will be about 30 degrees cooler tomorrow. Such is the roller coaster winter.
Meanwhile, Fletch did grill the steaks last night and they were EXCELLENT! They were also HUGE and both Fletch and I only ate 1/3 - 1/2 of our steaks. Colin (of course) polished his off with no problem. To go with the steaks I fixed a pan of roasted potatoes, onions, Brussels sprouts and some broccoli - all seasoned with some EVOO and a healthy (heavy) sprinkling of Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning. I will do that again - so tasty! And, it was mild enough last night (60) that we had a fire in the pit. So strange, but wonderful, to have an outside fire on January 11th! It was also pretty windy so everything I had on smells like wood smoke (not a bad scent, but still...more items tossed in the laundry basket).
Plans for the weekend include laundry (never got to most of it last weekend), cleaning (let's take the tree down...please!), cooking (some soup and bread will be on the menu), shopping (meeting up with friends on the 20th to celebrate two birthdays...presents needed), reading (want to finish The Roanoke Girls so that I can start Sing, Unburied, Sing - can't wait for this one), and a healthy dose of knitting (just a couple more rows on Colin's sock and I will re-join the Sabertooth Caterpillar yarn and begin working on the heel flap and turn).
I have no kitty photos for this Friday, so instead what I find to be a weird sign. My office is on the 2nd floor of our building and I always take the steps. This is on the landing between floors:
There is a similar sign between the 2nd and 3rd floors (except, you know, 2 1/2). My question:
Well, it's Friday and I was just told there is food in the kitchen: pizza and Hooters Wings.
Happy Weekend everyone - enjoy!
