Indio, California: We really didn't do a lot today. The weather was not good - very hot and very dusty, with a two-day wind storm on the way. I went to bed at 10p and slept for 9 hours. I must have been tired.
Several hours today were spent shopping (on-line) for sofas with Lisa. We have very different tastes, but both love classic styles, so will certainly be able to find furniture for our new house.
Our dinner tonight was super-simple, with just a few minutes to put a tomato, onion, and olive salad together... (no lettuce and no screaming salad bowl) and about ten minutes to sear the halibut for Mark Bittman's Seared Halibut With Anchovies, Capers And Garlic. This dish may have been better with a little spaghetti or fettuccine, but since we had pasta last night, I served it straight-up, with a tomato salad. Plenty of food.
Every piece of fish I have prepared from our Wild Alaskan seafood delivery has been wonderful. As soon as the local temperatures dip below 110°, I will order fish again.
Not much going on today. Getting ready for a huge wind storm tomorrow. Hunkering-down.
Until my next update, I remain, your "day off" correspondent.
