Somnolent Saturday

It's definitely been a lazy day today. I pretty much spent the morning on the computer trying to catch up with emails and other stuff. I've watched a little TV, (pre-recorded stuff since there never seems to be anything good on regular TV), and snuggled with Taz and Cally for a while. Thursday night there was apparently a water mane break across the street from the building, and they've been working like crazy to get it fixed. Our water supply was interrupted briefly yesterday but so far it's been holding steady since. The down side to this is that I was awakened at 6:50 this morning to the sound of a jackhammer and other loud obnoxious noises. One of the few days I have where I can actually sleep in and I can't. That didn't exactly make me happy.

I listened to an audio file that talks about the features of the new Book Port. I don't have the link in front of me at the moment, but if people want to hear it I'll go search for the link. And, Tuesday night is the night on ACB Radio's Main Menu when we'll hopefully find out more new stuff. I just hope it's released by the time the ACB convention happens because this is going to be my one big purchase of the year. I know, call me a nerd, especially since my current Book Port isn't even a full year old yet, (Next month I will have had it for a full year though), and it's working just fine. But, having extra features is what I'm all about.

I've got hamburger thawing out for tonight's supper. Since I never seem to have time anymore to fix a real meal, I wanted to do something different tonight. I'll be making spaghetti, and then a friend and I found a biscuit mix made by Bisquik at the grocery store the other day. It's for garlic cheese biscuits, and if you've ever had the ones from Red Lobster, you might be extremely interested in these because they're pretty much the same thing. I made a package the other day and I'll be making the last pack tonight. I'm going to have to find more of these things! And, they're so easy to make. Just in case anyone finds them and wants to give it a try, all you have to do is preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix the contents of the package with 1/2 cup of water and stir until it forms a dough. Grease a pan and divide the dough into 6 or 8 pieces and bake for 10-13 minutes. It honestly can't get much simpler than that. SMILE! kl1964, I know you're always up for new food ideas.

One other thing I wanted to mention. If you're a member of the Blind People Community you've all ready seen this, but if you're not this might be new. Apparently there's an organization that's trying to produce braille and large print labels for different products, and they want to offer the labels free of charge. If you want to read more, fill out their survey, or request a pack of free labels, go to the Labels for Literacy site and see what they have to offer. I thought it was pretty neat.

Well, I think that's about it for now. I need to go check on the meat and see how it's doing and then see if I can figure out what I want to read from my CF card in my Book Port. Later everyone!
