August 19--Crater Lake Gin

The cat came in and woke me up this morning, apparently not realizing it was Saturday. It was ok, though. We got up and did morning chores, laundry, etc.

We turned the radio on and listened to rock and roll as we worked. We almost always have music playing, unless Malida has the tv on. We have a Sonos music system that allows us to stream music throughout the house. I love it.

We drove out to the rural sushi place for lunch and sat outside to take in the nice day. The food was as good the second time around as it was the first time. We decided we would go there for dinner one day, as they have delicious-sounding dinner menu.


Gyoza--little dumplings of wonderfulness.

After lunch we came home and napped for a while. I dreamed about not being able to fall asleep. It wasn't until I woke up that I realized that I had been asleep.

After the nap I went into the office to take a look at our finances in anticipation of having to pay tuition next week. I received a pretty nice retroactive pay adjustment thanks to a stable state budget. It was a one-time deal, but it helped pay the bills. The theme for the rest of the year is "don't spend a lot of money".

I made some pork chops for dinner that were pretty yummy. Unfortunately I didn't make anything else, so I served oyster crackers as a side dish. After I ate I realized I had some baby bok choy I could have made. Tomorrow!

In the evening I listened to music with my friends for a while. After that was done, I went out for a walk. It was just after sunset, and it had cooled down to about 72 degrees. Lovely walking weather. I was only going to walk in the neighborhood, but I ended up walking to the park and around the path. It was dark by the time I got home.

There are a lot of things I like about the iPhone camera, but they really do not handle low light situations very well. My previous iPhone did much better in low light.
