We'll Be Reaching A High Of 89 Degrees Today

What did he just say? Did he say we will be reachig a high of 89 degrees.I think he did. Please NO. It is the second day of November out here on the Central Coast of California and I have the fan on. And I'm not happy about it either. It's Fall. We turned the clocks back Saturday night. I was at Scolaris this morning in my pajamas at five minutes past seven buying a sack of ice, a carton of neopolitan ice cream, hamburger ( hello..PETA) amercian cheese, corn on the cob and a can of beans. You see....we're sitting OUTSIDE bbqing tonight.

We are on Day 3 of the Heat Wave. And I give up. I am shifting back into summer mode. What else can I do? I'm tired of trying to pretend that we are in Fall. My pilgrim and turkey candles are literally melting in the sun. Had to move 'em out of the kitchen window. I made rolls last night to make some beef dip sandwhiches...from the leftover of that motherlode of a prime rib. When I bought it I didn't even look to see how many pounds it was. It was 7 pounds. SEVEN. That's ALOT O' BEEF...Even Buddy ....our toy poodle is starting to get burnt out on it. The first couple of days he loved it. Tried some more for his Birthday breakfast this morning. He turns 14 today. Nose turned up.Lips sealed shut. Head turned. Eyes rolled to the side.Nope. He's sick of it. I am thinking maybe tostados tomorrow night. With the leftover beef bonanza. But tonight we are BBQING...in the garden. That's what we're having. BBQed hamburgers on the rolls I made. Corn on the cob and a can of "Trail Camp" beans..... No stew. No pot roast. No soup. No stuffed and baked chicken. No pasta bake.No chili. ......BBQ

At least it will be dark.


  1. I'm ransacking the closet looking for my bathing suit. I could wade in the water, or run thru the sprinkler that way.
    Guess that skyscraper pile of oak will have to wait a few more weeks before it hits the fireplace too.
    Oh, since you're back on the meat, don't forget the bacon on your burgers.

  2. Can you believe we just chopped, stacked, split and piled enough oak firewood to reach the moon.....and now..89 degrees....

    and, yeah, why not...bacon cheeseburgers...

    I've got to go adjust the spreed on my fan to 10 !

  3. OHhhh my heart goes out to you! And the pilgrims and turkeys on your window sill. Poor guys. MAYBE you could turn your air down to 55 and put on a fleece and have a cup of hot chocolate! Just for a night???

    I wish I could send cooler air your way... Happy Bday to Buddy! Khan's 2nd birthday is in 2 weeks (sigh*). They grow up so fast :)

  4. Happy birthday to Buddy!!! Enjoy your bbq. Sorry about the heat wave, we are having it here also.

  5. Happy B-day Buddy!

    89 degrees... oooohhh - Sounds wonderful to me :) If I could, I'd trade places w/ you for a while ... they say the grass is always greener on the other side.

  6. And I'm cranky 'cause there was a chill in the house when I got home from work....I started cooking to warm up the place!
    I hope the heat wave breaks for you soon.
    Enjoy the BBQ!
