Hi nonny nonny and a ha cha cha!

I still sing Spanky's little song on Saturdays sometimes...  :)

Since my sweet hubby is nursing a bad case of food poisoning, I'm flying solo this weekend.  I think he's got salmonella from some bad (or undercooked) chicken.  He was pretty sick when I talked to him last night.  Poor baby.  There's not much you can do about food poisoning but if he was here, I could at least take care of him.  But if he was HERE, he wouldn't have eaten no bad chicken!!  Argh.  It won't be long now, though.

So I slept in this morning, which, by the way, means something different to me than it did two months ago.  I've gotten used to getting up at 4:30 so now sleeping in to me means 10:00.  Two months ago, it meant 1:00!  :)

I had planned to jump on my housework right away and then go buy groceries.  When I finally pulled myself away from Facebook at 1:00, half the day was gone!  Oh, Facebook, I wish I knew how to quit you.  Anyway, I got the laundry done and the floors mopped, the entire place dusted and scrubbed down and vacuumed.  Feels a lot better now.  And smells a little like blackberries.  Hmmmm.

I went to the store and got some food for the next couple of weeks.  I've been taking Lean Cuisine and Weight Watchers frozen meals for lunch (and, yes, eatin' them biscuits at morning break, shut up) so I got ten of them and two cases of Lipton diet green tea that I absolutely LOVE OHMYGOD and some other things.

I made this simple salad for supper.  Sliced tomatoes and avocados, salt and pepper and some homemade lime dressing (balsamic vinegar, olive oil and the juice of one lime).  It was amazing!!  If you like 'maters and avocados and I DO.

I'm planning to go to the air show tomorrow at the base.  Everybody on Facebook today was fussin' about the long lines to get on the bus to get out to the flight line.  There are only four parking lots they're letting us park in and you have to have your ID to even get on base.  They're trying to get everybody to park off base and ride the bus.  Parking is limited for us during the day at work!  I know it's a nightmare with 25,000 people trying to get there this weekend.  It's gonna be an adventure.  :)  I'm taking my sunscreen and my ear plugs, my camera and my patience.  Stay tuned...


  1. Sorry Larry is sick. He needs some home cooking.Like you say maybe not long. You have fun and add sunscreen to that list tomorrow. Love u

  2. I'm sorry to hear he wasn't well. I hope he's on the mend now. I was wondering why you were on Facebook that early on a Saturday. Enjoy the show and do where those earplugs!
