It is fairly late Sunday evening. Newbie is giving me that come hither look which can only mean one thing. I'll let you ponder that.
I am back in the city after a couple of days in the Valley. Other than Saturday night, I spent quite a bit of time sleeping. I am not sure why. Perhaps it is the time of year in which one wants to hibernate to the expense of being productive. Once again, the weekend went by too quickly.
Sunday morning, I cooked the Atlantic salmon that I bought my mother for Christmas. It cost me 35 dollars, so I was nervous that it wouldn't turn out well. I deliberately undercooked it just a bit because it's so easy to overcook most fish, especially salmon. The garlic and olive oil and red pepper I spread over the salmon made it taste all the better, and Mom claimed she liked it. There is lots left for her to eat over the next couple of days.
I love the Valley, but there is no equivalent to Clearwater or Fishermen's Market down there. The best I can think of is a guy who drives a fish truck up from Digby or Yarmouth every Wednesday. I'm not saying there is anything dodgy about a guy selling fresh fish off the back of a truck, stuff that's better than the crap they sell in the stores. I'm saying that that part of the province is underserved in the fresh fish area. A store specializing in the sale of fish would go over well there. I've stated too much on this topic, one which most of you don't give a poop about. Just saying.
I am not sure what to do here. I have to decide how many vacation days to carry over to the next fiscal year. If I don't, I lose those days. Don't ask me what I think of this policy. It's the same opinion you have. But I am not sure if I should use those last few days between now and year end or carry over at least a couple. What do you think? Don't make me think for myself, folks! Not the Bevboy way.
Time for bed. Newbie is really starting to grow impatient. Coming, sweetheart!!
