Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

I haven't slept well this weekend, and now I'm tired & my eyes are burning. The coffee isn't even helping much. Ain't it a shame when, at 9:30 am, you're looking forward to going to bed tonight? LOL

We took my former boss out for dinner Saturday night to a fancy restaurant. You have to understand that I'm a country boy, so Olive Garden is about a fancy as I can stand, but this place had a dress code, and offered only 6 entree choices. Among these choices was roast duck in some kind of wine sauce, and of all things, ratatouille. My kids loved hearing about that since we've seen the Disney/Pixar movie a hundred times.

Anyway, I left there and went to a new coffee shop that competes with Starbucks here in the southeast, called Elliano's. Good cuppa joe! Dawg, I think there's one in Valdosta, too.

Well, ...*yawn*...I hope y'all have a great day!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be warmer today with a high in the low 50's this afternoon. Unfortuantely it's going to rain all day too. Oh well, at least it ain't sleet like we got last night. Not a lot going on here today. Just some work I need to get done on the computer. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

So, what did you end up having for dinner on Saturday night?

I had pan-seared scallops on a bed of creamed corn, with fried kale.

Not bad, but I would have preferred a peanut butter & jelly sandwich.

Surprisingly good! Hubby bought them in the freezer section of Wal-Mart. I was impressed because I normally don't like Chinese unless it is from a restaurant.

LOL, Made. I didn't go to bed right then either. We watched TV until almost 10.
