Hello, Tuesday

When I used to swim an hour, I used that time to just let my mind wander. I'd remember stuff, I'd plan stuff, I'd just flit from thot to thot. It was often a very productive hour. I miss that BUT lately, I've come to use the time after Alexa turns out all my lights at night and before I fall asleep to do the same work. Last night I designed a new closet.

After vysila inspired me to reorg one of my closets, I discovered that between the reorg and the culling of ShitIDon'TNeed, I have another closet now that is half empty. It is all shelves and I actually need more hanging room. The shelving system is one my designer put in when I redid the place in 2005. Yesterday I dug through all my old emails to see if I could find out the name of the closet system she used.

In 2005, I saved every email she sent and we did most of the work via email so it's all just sitting there in googleland, thank goodness. It took a little digging but finally I got found a brochure she sent and from that was able to find a website that still, even now, sells the bits and pieces that make up my closet system!!

So this morning I ordered up what I need to add hanging to that one closet - shipping in 3 to 5 business days. $35. I'm delighted. I need to take out two large shelves and find a place to store them... (Goodwill?) I may even start that today!

A few weeks ago, I found a new author, Nick Petrie. The first book I read was good. Not great but good. And it's a series so I read the second which was set in Seattle, so fun. The story got a little bogged down in sentiment and melodrama but it held up. On to the third which I've been reading the past few days. It started out ok. And then started to unravel. I held on because heck, the other two were ok. And then, last night, it turned from a thriller into a romance novel. This morning - I had 25 minutes left and a 25 minutes treadmill walk and I could not do it. It went from readable to OMG did your editor die before you could publish this POS????? I closed it down with 10 minutes to go. I do not care what happens to any of those characters. Buhbye.

The Mariners game got rained out yesterday (Baltimore) - ROOFS, people! geesh. So today it's one of those new fangled 7 inning double headers. Starting at 1 pm. (Which means it starts at 4 pm in Baltimore - even with ony 7 innings that last out will probably happen for them on Wednesday - geesh.)

This morning, due to lack of tater tots, I switched to potato cakes and they work great! I took pix.



Here are my as-yet-unheated Dash's. Bacon bits on the grill and cheese, potato cake, cheese on the waffle iron. (Note: I cut a bit off the potato but the whole thing would have fit.)

Then I plugged them both in. AND squished down the waffle iron, then held it down with the can of chili for weight.

The light goes off when it's ready. This is what the grill with bacon looks like.

I just crack the egg right on top. I do close the lid for a bit on the egg but not for too long because I like runny.

When the potatoes are done (you can peek, no prob, if you aren't sure), they are a crispy delight.

And the egg goes on top.

YUM!



Now it's off to the shower and then into that closet!
