What a perfect day we had yesterday….temps in the high 60s, clear skies, slight breeze, birds singing….ah, yes…
Jim took off early to go get his “out of state” fishing license (that still galls him being a native Coloradoan, but we’re now domiciled in South Dakota). They just recently opened up the road to Big Meadows and he wanted to get some of those winter-cold trout up there. I sat outside under the trees at the park and knitted with Poncho laying beside me. I put on the Sincerely Sinatra radio station on the Sirius satellite radio and I was in seventh heaven…it was a tranquil scene to be sure.
Jim came home about 11 a.m. with his limit of four trout and said he even put back three. Fishing is good!!!
Nothing better than fresh fish so I proposed we have them for lunch with the leftovers from the night before.
The afternoon was full with walks, naps and reading Joseph Flynn’s newest novel. Jim took out the two racks of ribs and got them on the grill about 2:30. Happy hour got started as Jim nursed the ribs along.
Finally it was dinner time and we made short order of the ribs. Couldn’t believe that six of us only ate one rack of ribs though. Sounds like we have lunch covered for today before we leave to Alamosa.
Terri make a wonderful chocolate layered dessert and I asked her if she’d make it for us, as it is my absolute favorite dessert. Doesn’t it look good? It has a pecan, flour and butter baked crust with cream cheese, whipped cream and powdered sugar layer, then chocolate pudding and topped off with final layer of whipped cream!!! It is so wonderful.
We continued till late in the evening listening to Rich tell his hilarious stories of using Gorilla Glue to put up tiles in the shower house and also his being attacked by chickens and emus while delivering propane this winter. The guy tells a funny story.
I invited a bunch of you over to join us for ribs through Facebook, but no one seemed to be able to come in time for dinner. That’s a shame as it was really very good. Maybe next time….OK?
Remember, you are loved.
