June 9--Things I could have taken pictures of, but didn't

I had a few things to do today--do the laundry, meet with my landscaping guy to go over what we want to do in our backyard, pick up some pants that are being altered. I think that was about it.

The landscaping guy was an hour late, but arrived with his entire crew and did a bunch of work in our yard before we talked. We want to have some planter boxes put in, have a big tree taken out, and have the back fence replaced. I like this guy--he did a great job with our front yard.

The tree we are taking out is a giant palm tree that started out from nothing, and is now taking out my back fence. I could have taken a picture of it today so you could see, but I didn't. I could have also taken a picture of the landscape guy, Mr. Escoto, but I didn't.

We decided the first thing was to get rid of the tree. It is not a job he thinks he can do, but he knows a guy. Next will be the fence, and after that we will discuss the yard. Malida wants a spa too, but that's a different story.

After Mr. Escoto left, I went to the store to get some stuff to make carne asada from a recipe somebody posted on Facebook yesterday. One of the best things about Facebook is all the food related stuff. I see something that looks good and I print it out and make it.

I had some lunch, then made my marinade and put the meat in it. The marinade had lime juice, garlic, onion, cilantro, salt, pepper, a jalapeño, and olive oil. It was a beautiful green color. I could have taken a picture of it, but I didn't.

After the meat was marinating, I took a nap. During my nap I dreamed that there was a big storm and most of the trees in my back yard blew over. Then there was an explosion at the house up the street, which isn't really a house, but a CIA cover. I walked over and the front wall was gone. You could see inside to the living room, and there were a couple of CIA guys standing there. I mentioned to them that their front wall was gone. One of them told me that they could neither confirm or deny that. I could have taken a picture of their living room in my dream, but I didn't.

After I got up I did the laundry. I bought a bunch of new summer shirts this week and now they are ready to wear. They are all the same brand and style, but different fabric patterns. When I find something I like and is comfortable, I stick with it. I could have taken a picture of my new shirts, but I didn't.

After I finished up the laundry, I fired up the grill and cooked the meat, ten minutes on each side. Then I let it rest for a bit before cutting it in anticipation of carne asada tacos. I took a picture of the meat.

carne asada

It was delicious.
