dad's bday

April 15th, 2011 at 12:13 pm

My dad's bday is today. Sister, youngest niece, mom and I are taking him to Cheddars. It's a new restaraunt that just opened in the next town over. None of us have been there before. Hope it's good.

Afterwards we will go back to moms to open presents and have dessert. Lemon pie from Schwan's - yummy!

I got dad a gift card to Elephant Bar at 15% discount and 2 bags of black jelly beans, his favorite.

I fixed scrimp scampi last night in a butter and garlic sauce with green beans and tomatoes on the side. It was really good. I'll do it again next week since I still have half the shrimp left.

I had to turn the furnace back up. I had left it at 58 for about 2 weeks, but it's been below freezing here for a couple days so I upped it to 62. Supposed to snow next week. We haven't gotten our big snow storm yet this year and we usually get one in April so maybe... We did get some rain the other day which will help with moisture. We are 70% below normal for the year.

I finished reading my book Dragon Bones by Patricia Briggs. Sci/Fi - very good.

    Funny, we were all in shorts on Wednesday, and then in the afternoon it got a little chillier... and a little chillier... and a little chillier, and then it started raining.
    And then, out of nowhere, it would lead to a blizzard for about an hour! The snow was gone by 10am the next day, though. You just can't get too comfortable in the springtime, because there's no insurance it will stay nice! Smile Jerry

    I have less than a quarter tank of oil and am counting on getting through this season with no refills. Keeping it at 64, no higher. It still gets close to freezing at night. Hope i make it!
