SG flips over a full moon / SG voltea una luna llena

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

THERE WERE LEFTOVER POTATOES FROM a recent dinner, so San Geraldo made another of his versions of the Spanish tortilla. I never tire of seeing his mastery as he uses a dinner plate to flip the tortilla in the pan. Tragically, SG flipped way too soon Thursday night. Fortunately he did so over the sink, which I had just rinsed with hot water. Instead of Spanish tortilla we had a scramble.

Last night there was another pot of Chickpea stew (click here). I’ve decided that’s my new comfort meal. And this time, SG had the correct amount of chickpeas in the house (double what he used the first time). It was even more delicious.

We had lots of clouds yesterday; periods of strong, swirling winds; and the skies threatened rain all day. We didn’t have more than a drizzle in our neighbourhood. But, as we lay in bed in the afternoon, neither of us able to settle our brains for a siesta, San Geraldo noticed a rainbow. It was short-lived, as rainbows are, but I had enough time to grab my camera for a hint of a double rainbow.

And, although, I didn’t get a shot of this morning’s sunrise, I did get a shot of the moon.


QUEDARON PATATAS DE UNA CENA reciente, así que San Geraldo hizo otra de sus versiones de la tortilla española. No me canso de ver su maestría cuando usa un plato para voltear la tortilla en la sartén. Trágicamente, SG cambió demasiado pronto el jueves por la noche. Afortunadamente lo hizo sobre el fregadero, que acababa de enjuagar con agua caliente. En lugar de tortilla española, tuvimos una revuelta.

Anoche hubo otra olla de guiso de garbanzos (click aquí). He decidido que es mi nueva comida reconfortante. Y esta vez, SG tenía la cantidad correcta de garbanzos en la casa (el doble de lo que usó la primera vez). Fue aún más delicioso.

Ayer tuvimos muchas nubes; períodos de vientos fuertes y arremolinados; y los cielos amenazaban lluvia todo el día. No teníamos más que una llovizna en nuestro vecindario. Pero, mientras nos acostamos en la cama por la tarde, ninguno de los dos pudimos acomodar nuestros cerebros para una siesta, San Geraldo notó un arco iris. Fue efímero, como lo son los arcoíris, pero tuve tiempo suficiente para agarrar mi cámara y ver un indicio de un arco iris doble.

Y, aunque no obtuve una foto del amanecer de esta mañana, sí obtuve una foto de la luna.

  1. WOO HOO! YOWZA! HAWT STUFF! 8:40a saturday morning here; what a way to wake up! a full moon AND a double rainbow!

    1. Ron:
      Dudo was probably thinking, “I’m napping; don’t bug me!” Moose was thinking, “What are you doing? Can I help? Should I jump down and follow you? Do you want to pet me?”

  2. Now that is the first time i have ever seen a double rainbow, clouds sun and a full moon at once!!!!!!!

    And what a full moon it is!!!!!!!!!!! Someone is trying to get on the naughty list……….

    1. Mistress Maddie:
      A first for you! I’m so proud. Yeah, I think I AM trying to get on the naughty list. I debated doing this for days and finally decided to step out of my comfort zone. I sure enjoyed it. Unfortunately, a couple of people have asked who’s butt it is! The cheek!!! It’s mine, all mine.

    1. Bob:
      I made the same sink comment to SG! He flipped one of these over the stove recently and didn’t catch it all. He learned his lesson (I had to clean it up). I’m proud of myself for sharing my buns with the world … well, MY world. Like the first time i went to a nude beach. Very freeing.

  3. Ha! That IS quite a moon! I love the photo on the two cats on the scratching post with the rooftops behind them. They have quite a life, don’t they? And I know I’ve said this before, but the chickpea stew looks great. (We used to call them garbanzo beans when I was a kid — is that Spanish?)

    1. Steve:
      Can’t believe I mooned you all, but I sure enjoyed myself (out of character for me, to say the least). Our cats do have quite a life. Yes, the word garbanzos comes from the Spanish. We called them by both names before arriving here. The only reason I refer to them as chickpeas in this case is because that’s what the recipe calls them.

    1. Wilma:
      I’ve been asked twice now if that was actually MY moon. Yes! Taken over my shoulder into the large mirror on the terrace. I was so glad SG spotted the rainbow when he did. It was gone very quickly. And, yeah, the cats have it made and sometimes they even know it. With us being retired and now during the pandemic being home with them almost all the time, they have gotten used to constant love and attention… except when they’re not in the mood.

  4. We had a full moon in PEI it’s called a Beaver Moon at this time of the year. You have a nice moon there what is it called?

    1. larrymuffin:
      Well, I don’t know what exactly mine is called but I can guarantee no one would call it a Beaver!

    1. Debra:
      They were in bliss. Dudo gave me the look that said, “Don’t even think about disturbing this.” Moose was considering jumping down and following me around.

  5. Nice butt. I always check out men’s butts. X had a gigantic butt, which I hated.


    1. Janie:
      Thanks! I took that shot over my shoulder into the mirror on the terrace. I was pleased and kind of surprised that it didn’t look half bad (or I wouldn’t have shared it)!

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      Even better the second time, and even for a second day (and then of course even better than the first). I definitely recommend this one, and I’m sure you and Ken will come up with something special to make it even better.

Please share your thoughts...
