What a week!

It has been the worse, but also not the best of weeks. We have booked another cruise, twice apparently. We are now trying to get our TA to cancel one of them. At least we got the cabin we prefer. Best of all, if it goes (and right now who knows??), I will be able to mark two things off my bucket list - Easter Island and Pitcairn Island. I have always been fascinated by the Moai and have fantasized about Pitcairn ever since I read the book in high school. I am thinking that it might be time to get in touch with our library and check the trilogy out.

The air was pretty good yesterday and we started out good, but it's gotten icky again. The warned that this would be the case. Hopefully we will have a Delta breeze come up this afternoon and clear us out because we have dinner plans with Barb tonight.

Jeff had been feeling a bit under the weather and come to find out he was suffering from an irregular heartbeat. He'd been on medication for it and had been good for five years. Doctor changed the medication and within two weeks, he was having issues. He was in the hospital over night and now he's back home. His daughter and her partner have moved in until the end of September and Jeff couldn't be happier with the arrangement. I'm glad he has someone to be there with him. it's scary to think about our friends (all older than us).

The doc says my ear is fine, but it's still plugged. He doesn't seem concerned as long as it's dry. I wish I could be so sure. While I was out, I saw Joan, her first day out since her accident in April and also Jim, or at least I think it was Jim. With masks, it's hard to tell.


Cooking wise, it was mostly a weekend of cleaning out the freezer. We did a good job of it, too. I was surprised that the turkey, leftover from Thanksgiving, was still as moist and flavorful as when we put it in there. There's something to be said for brining. I did do one bit of cooking. We were supposed to have pizza and I wasn't in the mood. I took a pork loin, browned it on all sides, removed it from the pan and added onions, garlic, chopped up apple and thyme and softened it. then I put it in the oven at 400 for 15 minutes, removed it, added some port and a cup of beef broth, then returned it to the oven for another ten minutes. I also roasted some baby new red potatoes and it was very yummy. Yay. I love it when stuff comes out

And now we are headed out to get haircuts, Paula has set up in the garage. It will be nice to be rid of this mop before our week of triple digits.
