Well, well, I was going to take the day off… not from work, but from the blog. As I said before, I have a “For hire” project I am just finishing up…(so very fantastic, it is turning out.) I worked today on this project pretty much non-stop. Tony’s children were here this evening (Sarah and Katherine went to a dinner at a restaraunt in town for the band.) We had a late dinner (not to point any fingers, but some “rosy”-cheeked child [hint hint] forgot to turn the oven on [twice])I am guessing that it took the chicken three times as long to bake since it sat in the oven for about two hours without any heat. After we turned the oven on, the whole process went pretty quick. Amanda and Mary did Suduko. After supper, we watched “Love Actually.” This might be my 5th time for seeing it. Mary watched it twice this week alone and I am sorry we have to return it. I didnt get to see the commentaries this time around. (So leaving a generous hint… this would make a swell gift on DVD for me Â :))
Then I check in at the computer and see my darling Melinda has left numerous comments. (As long as I am leaving hints tonight, please leave me some comments here on the blog. I am shamelessly plugging for them. It a sign of a successful blog… an established readership evidenced by comments left.)
But back to Melinda’s comments, I thought this was a good time to respond to numerous comments. (Another dear reader said she needed feedback on her comments ) So here are a few random thoughts and phrases…
No, that was not a photo of our actual dinner, however minus the blue bowl, our Butter Chicken looked exactly like the photo I posted. I do have a similar blue bowl so next time I will serve it in that bowl. Gosh, Becky, you made feel like I was cheating.
Tony is in charge of the photos posted on the website. Which is why they are beautifully adjusted, cropped etc. I sneak photos onto layouts, but he has a passion and a intuitive eye for adjusting the photos that I frankly do not have. He does not cut corners with the photos and he also works many hours a week… so it takes longer for photos to hit the web site.
Sometimes, if you click on the “enlarge photo” link underneath the photo itself it will get bigger.
Now onto the hockey questions: Tony is rooting for the Oilers… as to their name think Houston Oilers… there is Oil in dem dar fields of Alberta. And Melinda is right, for us Â Canes as we are, there is only one team that should be called Hurricanes, and it ain’t in Carolina.
For me, the real story in these hockey finals is Joe Moss. Joe has Down’s Syndrome and has been on the Oiler’s payroll for over two decades as a dressing room attendant. (so for the hockey babies reading… click on the link and read about him. And then find a few more links and read some more.) At press time, here on this blog… the score is 3-3 in the third period.)
And Yuhan rocks. How does someone so young get so good? I am not sure if he is the best in the world as Katherine says and what would I know anyway… but he is very good. Humble, also… and I saw he had pleasure in doing it so well and seemingly effortlessly.
To finish up tonight, I have a little treat. Amanda had a track event today. She had (last week) won first place at her school in the long jump and 1500 meter something. Today, she represented her school city- wide. They had her competing against kids in Grade 6 and up… geez. But as the photos from Tony prove, they don’t come cuter than Amanda.
