Hi there! I just had to show you the new laptop cover I found for my MacBook Pro. When I ordered this laptop they only had two colors, silver or space grey. I went with the dark grey for a change of pace, but boy does it show the dust. I'm constantly cleaning it. So when I saw that a company was making wood covers with thin veneers of real wood I knew I wanted one. The choices of wood are wonderful, cedar, walnut, maple, mahogany, cherry.. and redwood burl.. bingo.. I fell in love. It arrived yesterday and I put it on and have been enjoying it ever since. Such a nice feel of wood instead of cold metal!
I am not affiliated with the company, just sharing my find, it comes from "Cover-Up". They even have shell and stone covers. I think it's really cool.
I've gotten a few more rows of my Woodland Blanket done, I'm doing a fairly wide blanket so it's not growing fast by any means. I won't win any races here, but that's okay. I'm doing random striping and doing my own thing that way, but Lucy is totally cool with that. :-)
I've had a few people ask me about the low carb regimen I'm on and so I hope you don't get tired of seeing my cooking! Costco had a big sale on whole beef tenderloins so we got a few more and Dayle will be cutting steaks and Kristi said she'd work with him and vacuum packing them in 2 steak bags for the freezer. I'm all set! :-) Below is a steak grilling on my Le Creuset grill pan, the whole meal only takes 15-20 minutes to make. I put the meat on, sprinkle it with garlic powder, pepper, NuNu's Cajun seasoning and some Worcestershire. While I'm grilling the meat I snap off the ends of asparagus and slice some fresh mushrooms and add them to the pan. I toss and turn the veggies and when the steak is done so are the veg.
This pan would handily grill 4 steaks but so far the family is eating their own thing and I'm cooking for myself if what they are having isn't something that I can have. But soon we're going to have a steak night for all 7 of us.
I thought I'd show you where we mounted the "EAT HERE" sign - right outside the kitchen. :-)
I am off to swim soon.. I haven't been as loyal to my swimming since Gracie is not here to meet in the pool.. :-) But I'm going today.
I'm going downtown on Saturday at 12:30 pm to join others in a "Women's March" event. My sister Denise is joining me. I will be there for the speeches and to support the effort, but won't be able to actually march too far, but Dayle is going to drop me off right there and will find somewhere to hang out until I call him to pick me up. He is so supportive of my social concerns of what is happening in our country with racism and women's rights, actually human rights as I'm worried about the poor, the children and the elderly who are being impacted by the way the current administration seems only to care about padding the bank accounts of those who are already overly wealthy. I'm so alarmed at how the rich few have so much and the poor masses are being stripped further of basic human rights such as food, shelter and health care. So.. I'm going to be there to voice my opposition to this administration. Want to join me? :-)
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
