A Pleasant Overcast Day

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I'm having a really pleasant day here in Sacramento.  We have had a flurry of gorgeous autumn days, but today has turned overcast.  I rose early this morning and swam laps for a couple hours.  I was famished when I exited the pool because I had no breakfast.  But still, I managed to pass several drive-thru fast food restaurants on the way home, while trying to decide what to cook for lunch.  After a peek in the refrigerator, I fried a couple fish fillets Cajun style, and made an Arugula and Kale salad with light dressing.  The plan was to wash it down with water, or a bottle of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice.  However, I found this 22 oz bottle of an "elixir" by the name of Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout.  It's wonderful stuff, and definitely not your daddy's brew.  It has immediately buoyed my spirits, which were already in good repair.  I can't say enough for this stuff!

Now, I'm off to raid the freezer for some Butter Pecan ice cream.  I foresee a nap quickly approaching my future!

Sounds like you had a deightful day with great exercise, good eats and a grand bottle of brew and topped off with a yummy bit of ice cream. Nothing like a nap on a overcast day after all of that.

Myrl- wow, I admire your dedication! I would have been lazy and picked up some fast food. Your meal looks as good as what I'd buy at a seafood restaurant.

You treat yourself well, Myrl, as you should! Although I think I would, too, want to take a nap after a lunch like that.

Did you know POM lost the lawsuit that said its claims misled consumers and there was no health benfit from drinking POM? Now, beer, on the other hand, reduces chances of a heart attack, from getting dementia and is good for your kidneys!

Myrl Jeffcoat - You're an interesting writer and great photographer too! I always enjoy visiting your Blog and hearing about what's going on in your California world. 

I don't ever have to wish you a happy day because you seem to do that naturally without being told. It's got to be a natural impulse and a good way to live.

A good meal and a bottle of wine can change an overcast day in to a day of Sunshine.

Good luck and success.

Oh, that Cajun fish looks DIVINE, Myrl! I could totally get into a lunch like that and I'm sure your spirits were already lifted by the rains as I know you guys need some there!

Hope you have a terrific Thursday!

I love CA weather these days too. We are so tired of heat, so leaving in 70th F is just right:)
