Another week AND another month have vanished way too quickly!!
Seeing the Sites: There are certain websites that I like to visit because they make navigating them so easy. If I see an article listed for ViralNova or Newslinq, I usually check it out. These sites list all pictures, videos, and texts on one page. They upload quickly, and I can read them without moving the page. The ones I hate and no longer visit are those which have the content on different pages. You must click the arrow > to continue to the next segment. Each page takes for-e-ver to load, and by the third piece, I just stop. I wish there were a standard form for these articles so I could read them all.
Outside My Window: The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and everything is in bloom. Unfortunately, I get fooled by appearances. Yesterday, I rushed to get off the computer, and I dashed (well, hobbled) to the back door. I thought I’d sit on the patio. My husband wasn’t home, so going outside may have been an ordeal with the steps and the storm door which I can’t keep open. However, I was willing to try. Unfortunately, when I opened the inside door, a gust of cool wind blew in. I knew that the sun was just deceiving me, making me believe it was warmer. I opted for the doors and windows to be open, and I stayed indoors. Today is similar, so I’ll enjoy the beauty of nature from my window.
Outfit Shopping: I’m still looking for an outfit for this end-of-June wedding we’re attending. My sister was going to lend me the one she wore for my daughter’s wedding, but she may have given it away. I still want to stay with a dressy pant outfit. I’ve designed one in my head, which is a bad thing. I’ll never find it in reality, and whatever I end up getting will pale in comparison. My mental depiction has long, palazzo-like pants in a light beige. The top is layered with a matching shell, then flowing organza-like fabric with handkerchief ends in a beige background with a subtle peach/green floral design. I can definitely “see” it; I just won’t find it! Oh well, my weekend job is to look online for something I like.
Dinner: When my boys came on Wednesday, we had chicken pot pie, one of their favorites. I made a very simple version because I knew my husband didn’t need to be going around collecting my ingredients. I just used a Pillsbury ready-made crust, instead of making a from-scratch one. I poached the chicken breasts until they were tender (about an hour and a half.) Then when it was cool, my husband helped me to take the meat off the bones. I made frozen mixed vegetables in the broth, and I mixed them with the cut-up chicken. Then I used a can of Campbell’s cream of chicken soup and mixed it with a few ladles full of broth. I mixed that with the chicken and vegetables and put the mixture into the bottom pie crust. I covered it with the second crust and baked it for forty-five minutes at 350°. We had a tossed salad with it, and strawberries for dessert. The boys each had seconds, so there was only a little slice left, and I ate it for dinner last night. There was also chicken left, and that will be made into chicken salad for tonight’s dinner.
Books/TV: Can you believe it – I still haven’t finished The Nightingale! It’s really good, but I just haven’t been reading it! Well, it’s definitely season finale time – many of my shows have ended. It’s fine, though, because I waste too much time in front of that boob tube.
Well, that’s it for now. We’re expecting a gorgeous weekend, and I hope you have one, too!
