Yesterday Hubby and I went to an Italian deli near us. They have a little restaurant attached that’s cafeteria style, and then a deli counter and grocery area. They have a great selection of food, cookies, dried pasta, cheese, and meats. Here’s their meat counter:

And here is there wonderful gelato:

Here is the gelato that Hubby and I got. on the left is blood orange, and on the right is tiramisu. The blood orange was like eating a divine Creamsicle. And the tiramisu is my favorite. Plus we have the little spoon shovels that make eating gelato even better.

So a few days ago I complained how hot it was, and then bookjunkie said it was in the 90’s in Singapore but it was super humid and it rained. I told her that it didn’t rain in Los Angeles at this time of year, and it only got humid enough to be annoying. So to prove me wrong it rained today, complete with thunder and lightning. It was neat, although the kitties hid behind the couch. Here is a picture from our living room window.

Today I remembered that trash pickup is early, and that gardeners start mowing lawns early in the morning. Oh well. I had to get up eventually anyway.

So I updated my resume and started looking for work. It’s a good idea to keep a list of all the sites you should go through to look for a job so you don’t forget any. And keep a list of all the jobs you have applied for. Sometimes I get an email about a job and I have no idea what they’re talking about so I have to look up what it is.

Friday I shall but in a claim for unemployment insurance. They have a chart on the website so you can calculate when the best time to apply is, based on how much you were making 6 months ago. So that’s why I’m waiting until October 1st.

I have been cooking a lot more since I have the time to do it, and then Hubby puts the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, which is nice. I would be taking the time to clean the apartment and donate stuff to Goodwill but it is still way to hot to move, so I have to wait a bit. Here are some pictures of Squeaky to make this post more interesting.
