This Week, So Far

Seems like we've had a busy week, don't know if that's really true.  Monday began at dawn, to me any time before 9 am is dawn, and we drove to the far side of forever, I mean Savannah, to see my retina specialist.  When I saw him in February he found that the pressure was up in one of my eyes and I had to put drops in for 3 weeks.  The good news is that the pressure is down, the bad news is that I have to keep putting the drops in---forever!-, and the worse news is that the prescription is out of formulary which means my co-pay is higher.  It's not seriously hight, just annoyingly high.
After that we were off to lunch, an early St. Paddy's Day lunch, a day we celebrate not because we're Irish, though I am a bit--had a Great-Great Grandfrather named Mickey Finn and a Grandfather named Richard Kennedy--, but rather because we met on St. Patrick's Day 48 years ago!  Does not seem possible, imagine, we were probably only about 2!  LOL!
We've both been craving Italian food, not Irish, I can have potatoes any time, and they both start with an I, so we went to The Olive Garden.  It's probably been 25 years since we've eaten in one, don't know why we've waited so long, though we have quite a nice little Italian place (The Upper Crust) here in town and that might be one of the reasons.  But anyway, the meal was pretty good.  Mac started with mussels in a citrus sauce and I had Sicilian Scampi  and they were both good, particularly the sauces.  And then because he'd been craving raviolis he had  Raviolis stuffed with Portobello mushrooms, good he said, but not great, too cheesy.  I had Chicken Breast done in an apricot/citrus sauce,  and fresh steamed asparagus and broccoli.  The veggies and the sauce were heavenly, the chicken was dry.  Then we shared a Dolcini a teeny, tiny  Amaretto Tiramisu Cookie Crumble.  All in all quite a good meal.  I didn't take any pix, but I " borrowed" these from Olive Garden's site.

Yesterday and today were all about the garden, will talk about that tomorrow.

Tuesday in the Swamp

Summer has arrived here in the swamp with temperatures in the 90's and afternoon thunderstorms.  Sunday we went down the road to the Mar...
