.....but, I usually "snack" late at night - most often after midnight. One of the great luxuries of living alone is that I can do exactly what I want. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Tonight I indulged in a big cup of Earl Grey tea, a toasted sandwich, and cake.
It's a cool, quiet night - interrupted only by the nearby owls and distant coyotes and/or wild dogs. About an hour ago there were gunshots - quite near my property - but they didn't last long.
It's painfully obvious that there's no specific purpose for this blog post.
A perfect time to share some (boring??) photos.
My midnight mug of Earl Grey Tea. I like large cups of very strong tea - with milk and sugar (or evaporated milk and honey)
When I was a very small child, my paternal Hungarian grandmother used to make tea for me like this. That's how I've always liked it ever since.
I (finally) decided to use the dinnerware that I bought for my parents when they first moved to Odessa (TX). It's been packed away for a long time.
This is a hibiscus pattern.
Tonight I made toasted sandwiches with turkey and Swiss cheese. My microwave still isn't working, so I made them in the oven.
I accidentally turned on BROIL instead of OFF, but fortunately they didn't burn.
Have you ever had a Dr. Pepper cake? It's made with real Dr. Pepper.
So how did I like it?
Let's just say that I wouldn't request to have it with my last meal before I was being executed.
It's okay.......but very sweet...and too Dr. Peppery....
I was finally able to grab the camera and take a quick picture. It's not a good shot, but I didn't want to get too close and scare him.
Still lots of butterflies around, but difficult to photograph them.
Another sunset photo that I took a few evenings ago.
