I've been meaning to post for days. Instead, I've been simply and totally vegging out, so tired I can't even think straight. Although I did manage to whip up some very good scallops and rice Tuesday night for dinner; then I somehow missed getting updated on my Friend's page so now I'm woefully behind (honest, I'm not ignoring anyone).

Yesterday morning as I was pulling out of the driveway, I saw the spread of magnificent wings right across the street as a smallish hawk swooped down and landed on the wire. I got a VERY good view of him -- and going by what I could find on the very fabulous whatbird.com, it was a rough legged hawk, somewhat south of its normal range, but nifty!

And I love this site. I could spend hours here. I need to try and find that strange bird I saw in the Caribbean last year (no luck yet -- it was a strange, strange looking thing; the closest I can find here is the Magnificent Frigatebird, but I don't think so).

ANYWAY...

We're going to head over to Mesa here soon and see a desk. We trekked out to Mesa last weekend for the same purpose, but it was insufficient (no file drawer, and somewhat crappier than it looked in the picture). I really wish I'd had the money to get the very nice one at J&B's Furniture -- but I didn't, so I have to LET IT GO.

I also need to do a few reviews. Urg.

It's still killer hot in Phoenix, and apparently going to stay that way awhile. Urg, again. Maybe that's why I'm so wiped out. I went to bed before 9 on Tuesday, couldn't get up Wednesday (dragged myself up with about fifteen minutes to get dressed for work), then 9:30 last night and DID get in a workout this morning.

I already want to sleep again. So tired...

My cat is sitting by me with his head pressed against my arm. He is very strange sometimes.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I get 'em at Trader Joe's -- the Jumbo Sea Scallops that cost way too much anywhere (even at Costco), but OH, so good! I give 'em a quick sear on both sides and serve them with a saffron risotto (made with broth, no cheese).

i can't have the risotto but yum scallops. Every so often Krogers put those things on sale to get ride of them. I'm there in the seafood case watching sales like a hawk (or an osprey I guess in this case...)

nope, i can eat donuts without much issue but rice sends my sugar into you might be in the ER tonight range. I can handle a little as sushi but not much

I haven't seen a hawk around here in a while. I'm glad you have one in your neighborhood. By the way, that's a great site! I found the little bird I saw: He's a Cassini's kingbird. :-D

I have to go to bed because I need to be up by 5:30 a.m. I promised to edit a proposal, but it wasn't ready this afternoon (naturally).

I heard you got a rolltop desk--great find! I can't wait to see it! I'll be coming to your place directly from work on Friday, BTW.

The kitty wants you to know he's there and is more fun than your laptop. ;-)

I of course didn't even see this until you were sitting next to me on the couch, I was so busy enjoying that new desk.... :-)

I've been totally wiped, too! Twice this week I went to bed around 9. That's CRAZY time for me!

Yay scallops, birds, and desk (read from Barb's journal)!

Can't wait for weekend...!
