Today is Good Friday, and in honor of the religious Holiday, the Stock Market is closed. As a result of that I find myself with an extra six (count em) hours to fill. Also I awoke this morning to look out the window at a dull grey overcast day, that can't decide if it is going to rain or not.----so here I am at my 'puter' bored, and without direction-----like I said ----its a Dreary Friday.
I thought maybe I might pop out and treat myself to a late breakfast, but I had no appetite to spend the money. I thought maybe I could use the time to re-organize my kitchen cabinets, into a more efficient layout, but can't work up any enthusiasm for that project, so will live with the way its organized now----besides, have now adapted to where I know where things are in the kitchen, albeit in the wrong places, least I know where they are.
As I sit here I here the odd booming and rumblings from the other side of the mountain, which tells me the boys at Camp Pendleton are staging live ammo exercises. (Marines Rule!!)
I suppose I could use the time to give the apartment a good dusting and vacuuming----oh thrill!!
I could do laundry----but its not Thursday and besides doing the laundry here at home is just not the same fun as it was when going to the good old "fluff n fold" palace. (sigh), course too its just to damn efficient doing it here at home---no challenge.
Rats!, it just occurred to me that it being "Good Friday", there won't be any mail today either, course too, won't have to sift through all the junk mail, and throw-a-way crap that we all get.
Judi, (my Nephew Peter's wife), sent me her recipe for a great chicken/chili casserole, which calls for cheese, but am struggling to determine just how much cheese. I asked for that info, and the answer I got was ---half a brick??, which leaves me with the question of ---and how big is a brick of cheese? Like are we talking a pound, five pounds??? Is there some standard code that I am not aware of----like everyone knows how big a brick of cheese is, can I go to the store and ask for a brick of cheese and get some standard weight of cheese? (calm down old dude, your getting hysterical!!) sigh---well that's another thing I can put off to another day, I don't have all the other ingredients needed yet anyway---but not knowing how much cheese, no point in going to the store anyway.
I met my new Doctor last Wednesday, Dr. Fuertes, who seems congenial enough, easy to talk to, and he efficiently set me up with an appointment with a new Urologist Doctor, so that I can continue to monitor my on-going enlarged prostrate condition, the bad thing is, I have to go all the way up to Riverside to see the Urologist, but then I also have to go up to Riverside to get my eyes checked, (its been two years, so am definitely needing to do that), but as you know, it will be impossible to get an eye appointment the same day as my Urology appointment, so guess old blue is gonna get a chance to make some fun gallops to and from Riverside (about 35 miles one way)
Wow, looks like I have managed to kill a good 30 minutes putting this post up---now what am I suppose to do with the other extra 5 1/2 hours?? Guess I will go make a pot of coffee, its gonna be a long day------------
