Crochet of course! Yesterday was “tax” day. Thankfully I had all the paperwork gathered as I keep an open folder in the file, labeled taxes. Everything tax related is shoved into that folder all year long and then when needed, I pull the folder and we try to make “sense” of the paperwork inside and put like papers together.
Our appt was at 11:00 in San Diego which is about an hour’s drive. We had a few errands, Costco run, grocery stop, and I had to get my spring floral vine for the latest design so we could take photographs. I wasn’t sure if I could find what I needed at Michael’s or Joanne’s so that was an additional stop to make on our list.
By the time we finished with everything it was 5:00 in the afternoon. We had groceries to put away and meat to re-package in smaller quantities for the freezer and we both needed to check email and start supper.
But I did manage to work up another butterfly for the new butterfly doily I’m in the process of designing. Just one butterfly left and I should be able to finish it by tomorrow. I wrapped the floral vine around the Easter egg garland and we hung it from the mantel for pictures. Hubby said it was much cuter than he expected it to be. But he always looks at most of my projects with skepticism. I mean just how cute or lovely can a piece be with tails sticking out everywhere. And often embellishments are needed to transform a plain piece into something really cute.
While at Costco we ended up succumbing to really nice looking Ahi tuna steaks. I didn’t have fresh tuna on my list, but peering over the counter into the refrigerated open bin at these beauties, we couldn’t resist, even though we passed them once, only to return. Technology is a wonderful thing – sometimes. We decided these steaks were too good to freeze so while at our last stop, the grocery store, hubby used his cell to find a recipe online to be sure we had all the ingredients necessary. He found a seared Ahi tuna recipe that sounded pretty good. The steaks are basically seared and not cooked all the way through. I wouldn’t try a recipe like this with just any fish, but a good quality tuna. It was wonderful even though I was a bit skeptic at first. The fish almost melted in your mouth, was flavorful (it was marinated for an hour first), and moist. I may be spoiled!
