Packing.

And An Unexpected Dinner Invitation.

The only real thing I had planned for today was a mid-day meet-up with my ex, Jeff, to hand off a baguette pan for his baking experiments.

That turned into sipping wine, which turned into a nap – just after a call from Jimmy with a dinner invite.

I packed the oddest things in the bag to go over:

  • 3 ears of corn
  • Leftover coleslaw
  • ½ bottle wine
  • A book (The Cigar Roller)
  • Blueberries

You could describe the dinner as what was around both our houses, or, make it classy and say “Tapas”. The dinner?

  • Blueberries
  • Mixed olives
  • Coleslaw
  • Mushroom stuffed raviolis
  • Tod mun (in this case, fried shrimp cakes)
  • Garden salad
  • Wine
  • Scotch for dessert

Not a bad dinner for out of the blue.

But then it’s home to pack for tomorrow’s road trip to Walla Wall/McCall/Pendleton/Maryhill.

    It will be Kevin’s first visit, my third or something like that. I love the tombstone just down the hillside from ConcreteHenge — “Here amid the fury of nature lies a man at peace” or something like that on Sam Hill’s marker.
