"Elizabeth stuck a card in the
middle of the rose-bowl that said in pretty letters,
stood back a minute to see how everything looked,
and then fluttered to the door to watch for the car."

my love is on his way home from work, probably driving the 'river road' - leaving the rush hour gridlock to those not in the know (of the river road) and experiencing great frustration in the late afternoon sacramento high temperature. poor souls.
i watered the garden areas this morning thinking a good drink will do them well and carry the foliage through to tomorrow. it is not to be. sad face. at 3pm i went out back and saw that particular plants were in distress. grabbing my watering can i filled three times total and fed the plants. poor dears.
i have an alfredo & spinach pasta dish in the crock pot .. it's much too hot to turn the oven on! rotelle, ricotta, spinach, alfredo (home made), herbs, sundried tomatoes, mozarella .. i'll share pictures and the recipe another day. pinky promise.
as soon as i hit 'post' i'll walk down the hall to the kitchen and make a caesar salad to go along with the pasta dish. this will lend us another dinner for tomorrow, and a lunch portion for the hubs.
