Yesterday was football, football, football. Sorry the Giants lost, but glad that it was Atlanta that got the win, very pleased that Green Bay beat Seattle and thrilled to death that the Oakland Raiders actually won a game.

I cooked pork shoulder roast yesterday and used my crock pot, usually I do roasts in the oven, but I wanted to cook in a way that wouldn't heat up the kitchen, it was 93º here yesterday. Had never done a roast in a crock pot so I checked out some recipes on Pinterest and sort of did a mixture of a couple of them: 1/2 cup water, some Worcestershire Sauce, garlic, Italian herbs-oregano, basil, sage, and cook the heck out of it. It was so much better than the oven, even after cooking for hours it was so juicy, not dry, which pork has a tendency to be, at all.
Today it was up in the pre-dawn hours, around 7am, to go see my retina specialist, all is well with my old blue eyes, they're good for another 4 months. I had to do the peripheral vision test this morning and I hate it. After awhile I'm pushing the buzzer (you're supposed to do that when you see a light) randomly to just get it over with. Then my eyes stay tired and I see little lights popping up for the rest of the day. I like my doctor, his staff is great, but I wish I could sit in front of my computer and have them do the exam via Skype or something.
On the way home we stopped to buy some autumn flowers. We got chrysanthemums and nothing else, the shelves were bare. I wanted some bulbs to plant and they had nary a one, guess Amazon will get my order.
Today it's left-over pork for sandwiches and a salad, still hot and muggy, so that's about right, though I did make some chocolate pudding for dessert.
