It is 73° outside. Blue skies, a gentle breeze…  It’s one of those perfect-weather days that just don’t happen often enough. Absolutely gorgeous.

The only thing that would have made today better was if I hadn’t broken my glasses this morning. I received my notice from my eye doctor a few weeks ago stating it was time for my checkup. The card has been sitting on my desk to remind me to call one of these days. Well… I finally called. The spare glasses are just not cutting it. I need to see.

Monday, 6pm. I’ll be there.

But even being blind as a bat can’t take away the beauteous day! Windows are open and real air is in the house. We’re on the deck, Cybil is under her rhododendron, and life is good.

Dinner was pretty good, too.

I bought a whole pork loin the other day and cut it into chops. I took the tail end and set it aside for sandwiches or something – and tonight it was sandwiches.

I put the pork pieces in a  pot with water and a sprinkling of garlic powder and chipotle powder. I simmered it for about 2 hours – until it was fork-tender. I drained it and let it cool, and then pulled it all apart with two forks. I then placed it in a skillet with about a cup of Gate’s BBQ Sauce.

The pork went onto little seeded egg rolls; mine had avocado, Victor’s had cheese, and Nonna’s was plain. French fries and ketchup. Yummy!

I see ice cream, strawberries, and fudge sauce later on…

The perfect ending to the perfect day…
