This is pretty much how I spent my Friday. Other than this I was soaking in the tub then taking a nap before I made dinner. Things could be much worse. We could be doing this in Pleasanton, California where we used to live. The average August day is close to 100 degrees and on top of our deck it was 10 degrees more than that. We scrubbed and stained that deck every year for 28 years. I wasn’t wearing long pants and two shirts back then. Working is much easier in this cooler climate for sure. I guess we’re suckers for houses with wooden decks. Our new house has three.
A lot of upkeep but we also wake up every morning with this view.
The sound of the ocean is constant background music. Soothing. Never ending.
I’m a lucky, lucky lady.
Holy Guacamole Mavis Wanczyk!
One other lucky lady is Mavis Wanczyk, the gal who won the Powerball jackpot. $758,000,000!!! I love this story. She’s a single 53 year-old mother of two. She was just an average, middle aged, hard working woman and she won the jackpot to end all jackpots. When she was asked by reporters if she was going to buy a new car she said that no, she recently bought a new car and is paying it off. Guess she won’t have trouble doing that now!
My Guacamole Live
I make pretty good guacamole. There’s a restaurant we used to go in Dublin, California called On the Border. They made the guacamole at your table. It’s called Guacamole Live. This is my version.
Now this is why I’m talking about guacamole. I ordered this new gadget that I saw online. Its called guac-lock. It has an elevator chamber that pushes all the air out of the container so the guac stays green and fresh.
So I made the guacamole and put it in the bowl.
A good buy if you like to make fresh guacamole and hate the brown leftovers.
I’ll leave you with a beautiful Oregon Coast sunset. Hope your Saturday is spent doing what you want to do, not just what you need to do!
