My New Job In Sacramento

STILL IN A RELAXING MODE...

Woke up around 8.30am each morning to the sounds of chirping from the birds... after our breakie in the house, we walked around the ranch... without a cowboy suit and hat though...
At the ranch....
No animals though...

Need to do a lot of gardening here ....  
When do we ever start, I really don't know..
Meanwhile, started off with the easiest task ... Watering!
I know nuts when it comes to planting....
My supervisor has not given me any tasks as yet....
Look what I've found!!
Giant Lemons!!
So juicy too!!
Some kind of flowers.....
Oh dear, I better learn up some gardening skills and names...
I am actually "freezing" but got to act Strong.. hahahaa...
At the gardens...
Flowers waiting for us to be replanted...
Somehow we haven't start on them yet....
Still in jetlag mode.....
Pretending to be...
Got to get familarized to the weather and surrounding first...
That is where I am now... 
In the middle of nowhere..
Very quiet and serene....
My New Job as a Gardener cum Farmer!

  7. Those lemons look so good! We cannot grow them in our climate. I think this trip is for rest and fun, so no planting!

  11. The lemonade made from the giant lemons must be very refreshing! I would not know that it was cold at your side if you did not tell us since you were wearing only a T shirt and no jackets.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
