Sweating and Cooking and Ghosts, Oh My!

It's Tuesday, for those of you that don't know that...But it's my Monday...aarrgghh!


Now I don't want to go on about the hot weather, but I will....we reached record high temperatures yesterday, 90 degrees! They even opened the beaches and called back the lifeguards to work... this is so bizarre. Yes you can bring my attention back to these complaints the minute I blog about the cold and the snow! But hey that's not here yet. I can take it.



I did a lot of cooking this weekend. It's something I love to do for those who don't know that. I just don't take the time for it. I made a roast pork, and a pot of chili. These are Fall foods, by the way, not foods I should be cooking in 90 degree weather, but I digress. I'm cooking more since I had my bout with food poisoning because I'm just sooo afraid to eat anything out. I know this feeling will pass but for now, I feel safer knowing where and how the food was prepared keeps my mind at ease.



Another thing that's strange in this weather is seeing all the Halloween decorations out. I took a long walk last night to look at the displays some people put out. Now I like Halloween and I like the occasional ghost and goblin or witch here and there, but some people just overdo it, in my opinion.

Peace

Ok that's enough for now....See ya tomorrow.

so, a full on cemetary in the yard might be too much?

I gotta say, I am loving being able to hang out outside more with the glorious color changes happening. And I'm sure snot dog is happier with the heat then he would be with 4 feet of snow. It'll get here soon enough.

Patti said...

Yes, I too prefer a minimalist approach to Harvest/Halloween decorating.

But Christmas ...

Well, I made a roast Sunday (90F outside!) and I just got done making my infamous chili sauce for hot dogs, so you seem quite normal to me....

The weather is definitely getting weird. It's been beautiful, but colder out here...cue spooky music...

Christy said...

I believe I am one of the people who over do Halloween decorations. My fiance, son and I all love Halloween. And since Brae's birthday is in October he loves decorating for Halloween. Umm...so...my house is definitely ghouly ghouly.

Claudia said...

If you ever have the chance, pop down to South Florida at Christmas...all christmas decorations in 80 degree weather!! LOL...the best are the palms with lights!!

Matt-Man said...

Hammer said...

I didn't step outside all day yesterday until about midnight.

It was about 85 and muggy as hell.

Fall weather indeed.

Open Grove Claudia said...

I'm freezing. My toes are even cold. Sheez. And you're complaining about the warmth.

When it gets cold here, the gym cranks the heat - so it's 85 in the gym and 32 outside. Like a daily fever that goes away in the fall.

Odat said...

Pool, Some people do it up nice, yet others have stuff just up for the sake of having stuff up..and it's not so nice....Did you just get what I just said??? lol

Patti, aha! So you like Christmas huh?

buffalo, you're my cooking idol!!

Paul, I DO BOOGIE!!! (and I read too!);-)

Sarge, come on up anytime...and I can't wait to see what you've got this week. ;-)

roger, I'll hop right on that..(if i remember) :-)

michael, very strange indeed!

christy, if it's done nicely, I don't mind but like I said up thar a bit, some people just throw things together haphazardly and it looks just terrible.

claudia, I can't imagine that! lol

Matt-man, It better be here by tomorrow or your monkey gets it!

bee, oh i know how it feels now! (i wont' tell anyone about the watch!) hehe.

Hammer, It sucks doesn't it?

Claudia, You're kidding me???

Deb said...

Ummmm.. scuse me for nitpicking here, but didn't you tell me you got sick from something that came out of your freezer? Maybe I misunderstood. (snicker)

The CEO said...

Just back from having sushi. Mentally singing the song "Summertime". Hope your day is going better!

Monty

Odat said...

deb, Yes it came from my freezer but it wasn't homemade...it was storebought and store cooked. Geeze!

ceo, I don't do sushi ;-( but I do like the song Summertime!
Oh and I went out at lunch time and there was a lil chill in the air!!!

Peace

M@ said...

it's too fucking hot for today.

Odat said...

M@, Well, it started off at 85 this morning, went to 75 in the afternoon, now it's 60 going into the 50's tonite!!! It's soooo bizarre!
Peace

Mike M said...

Overdue Halloween??? You can't overdue Halloween!
But is it really Halloween? I mean the East Coast is still in summer, or at least if feels like it. Last time I checked, Halloween was in Fall.

The wife and I will be over shortly to test your cooking skilzs. I'm thinking of bringing my monkey friends too.

Echomouse said...

People are decorating for Hallowe'en the way they do for Christmas. It's weird. I'm not decorating at all this year, just giving out candy. The little buggers ought to be happy I'm even doing that. I may dress up like Maxine from the cartoon :) lol

I hope you don't get food poisoning again. All the great stuff you're cooking is making me hungry!! How you do make things like that when it's that hot??!! I'm praying for snow already. Cannot wait. lol
