I woke up at 5:30 this morning to be ready to walk at 6:00. I went outside and only got about 5 feet from the door when I realized it was only 61 degrees and I was in a tee shirt. It woke me up for sure but I thought I was going to get Frostbite. I ran back in the house faster than I've ever run before. Put on two sweatshirts and went back outside for "Take Two" of my walk. The sunrise was very nice as I made my way along the water, up to the airport and back. Just over 3 miles.
I managed to get home without coming down with Hypothermia. I have a second cup of tea to get my blood flowing again and got ready for the day. I had to postpone my regular Tuesday "Breakfast at Tiffany's" also known as Harpoon Harry's because I had a Doctor's appointment yesterday but we got together today for great food and great company. I have a friend who is somewhat of a business mentor that I have breakfast with once a week to go over what is working, what isn't working, what we want to change and what we want to do away with in my day to day routine. I'm lucky to have such a friend. Plus we just have fun. We will talk, laugh, joke, goof off but always fit in some good business and I leave with new ideas and good ways to improve the old ideas.
I came home and spent the rest of my morning and a good portion of my afternoon creating ads and pages on my website marketing a new rental home I am managing downtown. I even did the unheard of for me and I had lunch at home at my desk while working. The rental is a beautiful home built in 1902 and has some amazing woodwork. It has the early 1900's look and feel while modernized like a home built in 2017. My website building skills are not my strong suit so it took me a little longer than it would others but I got it done.
My work was done, well done for the day, about 5:30 and I'm going to really shock everyone here but I cooked dinner at home. Two meals at home in one day is not the way I normally live but today it just turned out that way. I knew a couple days ago I was going to be working from home all day today so I bought a nice Corned Beef and made an"Irish Boiled Dinner. I do mine in the Crock Pot for 6 to 8 hours and it comes out as moist and tender as can be. The slow cooker process flavors the meat with the onion and I add some garlic for added taste. The cabbage, carrots and potatoes got the meat flavor in them too with the long slow cook. I love my Crock Pot. Put the food in, turn it on and just walk away. Maybe take a quick peak at it every couple hours and you're good to go. Lazy Man's cooking and it tastes delicious. I heard Wolfgang Puck is getting worried I'm coming for him. Luckily for him I don't cook often. I think his job is safe.
I had my dinner at home in front of the TV. Kitty had some with me too. She actually likes carrots more than the meat. I talked to an old College friend on the phone for a couple hours and now I'm ready for bed. That was my Day in Key West.
