Monday; Torture Comes Early!

Mary goes through her exercises!

The force of habit made me look at the weather forecast; oh boy, here we go again!

OMG, I went to the She Shed and got three sets of water wings: one for Mary, one for Scout, and one for me.

We were up early, and it was raining, so our planned trip to Victorville would have to wait.  It is OK since we have to be home for a UPS delivery.  As Mary came into the garage on our way to our torture session, she broke into a cachinnation after seeing me blowing up the rubber rafts instead of backing out the car.  I showed her the weather predictions; needless to say, my efforts were redirected by the doctor.  We went in the car.

Then, all of a sudden… NOTHING!

We headed home after the workout and proceeded to work around the kitchen.  We made Beef bourguignon or bœuf bourguignon, also called beef Burgundy, and bœuf à la Bourguignonne.  It is a French beef stew braised in red wine, often red Burgundy, and beef stock, typically flavored with carrots, onions, garlic, and a bouquet garni, and garnished with pearl onions, mushrooms, and bacon.

The two of us made it up in about 30 minutes!

This will feed us for about four days after we deliver some to our neighbor.

It simmered in the crockpot for about six hours on high.

We dined at about 7:00 pm, which is a little late for us, but we wanted to have the results of our efforts for dinner!

Finally, the weatherman was right; we got some rain.  We watched TV and then worked in the office until about 10:00 pm, and then we crashed.

Why do dragons often sleep during the day?  So they can fight knights.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
