Happy St Patty's day!
I'm filling the crock pot with pearl onions, corned beef, carrots, potatoes and of course cabbage. It will be nice to come home to after working all day.
Steve's been invited to play his wash-tub bass at one of the bars tonight so I'm guessing that's on tap for us.
Scale this morning: 209! Then 210! Then back to 209! So I'll take 210. 209 would give me 10%.
My oldest niece is getting married next month. My stress factor for "what to wear" has been incredibly high. It's an evening wedding in San Francisco. Not quite a formal affair but pretty damn close.
She's been great. "Just wear what you're comfortable in." Somehow I don't think sweats, t-shirt, no bra & slippers is what she has in mind.
I found 2 dresses yesterday plus I have a dress in the back of my closet. I'll take pic's of all 3 and you guys can help me decide.
Note to my friend Teri: Max Volume was in the store yesterday. I tried the dresses on to show Steve & Max decided to chime in on the fashion advice. (Note to everyone else: Max is a local dj that's worked in rock radio for the past 30 years. Think "Johnny Fever" from "WKRP in Cincinnati". He called me "cutting edge" and "trendy" yesterday.) (And no, I don't believe Max Volume is his given name.)

Enjoying Steve's chicken soupFor the past couple of weeks Steve's been buying a whole chicken. We eat off it for a couple of days & then he makes soup.
I take a big container of chopped veggies & spinach, put them in my rice steamer & top with the soup. It's nice to have a hot lunch once in a while.
