Happy Easter. Happy Spring. Happy Passover.
I slept late today which felt heavenly. Friday night I was up later than usual (good GOD the John Hiatt show was great. I had a whole post written in my head, but I didn't get it down soon enough. (Two notes—got to sit with Ernie and Paul which was delightful. We were our own little row in the balcony—-felt like we had a little box! And, as Ernie noted, John Hiatt has always had an old voice but he's truly grown into it. Heaven. A really wonderful show…saw lots of friends. As good as it gets if it can't be at my house lol). We got home and wanted junk food as we hadn't really eaten…oh, except for the worst nachos I've ever had in my life at a bar down the street from the Castle. What's a good place for a quick drink before a Castle show? Because we are two for two, and not in a good way. Anyway, we were ravenous so we stopped and got gyros near home which is our late night, had a few drinks, food of choice. What is a gyros for me these days? A gyros, hold the onion, hold the sauce, and don't eat the pita. JHC but age has its downsides. It was still quite delightful with a few fries however. Ernie was still wound up so he stayed up while I went to bed and soothed myself to sleep by googling, "how to keep your cat from getting feces stuck in their fur?" and "why does my cat stink so bad?" Poor Hattie. I slept like shit (good show) and yesterday all day I felt sleepy. I should have just given in and taken a nap because I never did get over it. Ernie and I were both feeling quiet and had no plans. I spent an hour or two doing some work but then just curled up and enjoyed the grey day. This included doing things like watch a 16 minute video on how to make a gourmet Cheeto. I kid you not. We were in the mood for watching tv but nothing satisfied. I think we went through something like five different shows. We tried watching Godless. I think I only made it through one episode. I should give it more of a chance. It's just when you read that it involves a town of only women, you don't expect 99 percent of the dialogue to be, you guessed it, all men. Eh, I don't know. Tried a few Acorn TV show but none of them were great. One two dark, one two light. I was hard to please. We finally watched the first episode of Wild Wild Country which was intriguing. I wanted a good dinner as I feel as though we've been eating too much junk, or having kitchen mishaps, so we made salmon slow roasted in olive oil and it was good. But worth using a cup and a half of olive oil for? Eh. It tasted good but don't know if I'd do it again. I tumbled happily into bed with clean sheets no less.
Sometimes I love the drives to shows at the Castle….watching the sun go down….
Ernie and I were stunned with how beautiful the red potatoes looked in the water. We shared our excitement with Leo. He did not seem to share it.
The red potatoes and the blue kale were both from Farmer Greg at Claybank Farms…which means they were wonderful.
