OK, first things first. I voted in the state primary election this morning before heading out. Not a great turnout, but better than I expected.
New prescription eyeglasses arrived and I love them. Yes, both pair. One frame is a sort of bronze colour and the other is rather golden. Similar shapes but different designs. A new profile photo is on the list for the near future.
Stopped for Gin and snagged a few bottles of wine that was on sale. Now is the time to replenish the wine rack for the Fall and I got off to a good start. The extra cash dries up in another week or two, so hoarding is the plan at present.
With the road trip done, I walked up to the Farmers Market for sausages, tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, cucumbers, and a bit of cheese.
Took a walk around town and spent time on the boardwalk listening to the ocean - slightly muffled by the sounds of late-comer sunbathers and their kids - then stopped by the local candy store to support them, and my Dutch licorice
Back home I prepped my 15-hour Pasta Sauce recipe (using the Italian plum tomatoes just purchased) in the small crock and set it cooking.
Giving the plants a deep soaking for the first time in 3 weeks and they seem happy for the experience. Grocery shopping and laundry are on the gay agenda for tomorrow morning, and if the weather continues to be this glorious, a drive south to Fenwick Island and maybe lunch while there.
Pseudo po-boys are on the menu tonight. I say "pseudo" because they will be made with roast pork in it's natural gravy/juices and the usual po-boy toppings. A slight twist, but as juicy and messy as any other po-boy sandwich. Which, of course, is the point.
Later, being over the hype generated for the anniversary of 9/11, a single candle will be lit in memory of all those lost, and especially 2 who were my friends. Silence is best, I think. Enuf' said.
And so it goes.
