The sun appeared yesterday afternoon. This allowed me to grill a large pork tenderloin. I put a Cajun dry rub on the tenderloin, grilled it for five minutes on each side over high flames, and moved it away from the flame, where it continued to roast for 30 minutes. I then placed it in a Pyrex baking dish, covered the dish with aluminum foil, and placed it in the oven at 170 degrees. I placed broccoli and mushrooms—seasoned with Cajun seasoning—in a covered casserole dish. When Laura arrived at 6:15 PM, she smelled the pork and announced that we would be eating soon! We generally do not eat until 8 PM. She placed the broccoli and mushrooms in the microwave and cooked on high for five minutes. The meal was delightful, and there is sufficient pork remaining for another meal.

The weatherpeople predicted rain for today. It was sunny when I arrived at my office at 7:30 AM. During the last few minutes (it is now 8:05 AM), the sky has become overcast. The weatherpeople may have properly forecast today's weather. I sincerely hope they have not.

Weather Update: It is now 8:30 AM, and it appears the weatherpeople were mistaken! The sun is shining brightly, the sky is blue, the clouds have scattered, and the birds are singing. YES!
