Weekend in Morris-ville

Breakfast of champions:


A fajita omelette featuring lean steak, green and red peppers, onions and fresh grated mozarella. Topped with spicy habanero salsa, and served with a steaming cup of freshly ground french roast coffee.

Music playing at the moment: Sting, "My One and Only Love"

Weather: Sunny, no clouds in sight, temperature already 94 (current heat index 106) in St. Louis.

Today's agenda: One load of laundry, including folding and putting away. Balancing of all bank accounts in preparation for quarterly tax return Monday. Drive to my buddy Gary's parents for a family get-together in the back yard while watching the Cardinals play the dreaded, shitty Cubs. Maybe a trip to the bar for cigars afterward, before heading home for the evening.

Tonight: A martini (with bleu cheese-stuffed olives) on my deck, watching the neighbor fish the lake behind my house. Maybe some tilapia sizzling on the grill.

Sunday is an open slate - maybe a bike ride... or a mega-nap under the ceiling fan with Van Morrison in the CD player. Decisions, decisions.

Have a great weekend, wherever you are.

Okay, that was a deliberate effort to make me jealous of you for not having small kids to worry about. Wasn't it?

ONE load of laundry?

Sounds more than wonderful.

think of the name of a place really far away that you have no idea where it's at -- then say this really fast, "wear the fox hat?"

AHhh, it sounds like a perfect way to spend your time. And I WOULD include the cigar. They are damn tasty!
Did it turn out to be as satifying as you thought it would?

I want to move to Morris-ville! That sounds like the life (minus the cigars). And since you have so much time, I'll be bringing my laundry to your place. :-)
