I love you.
Sometimes I put it off for too long!
He’s a big white husky-type dog, and he was sitting between me and Trav on the couch. I laid on him for a while, and my shirt came away all covered in hair! He was so comfy and soft.
What a great trip. I’m so glad we get to go places on a weekday, when there are very few other people on the rivers. On the way back down, we had the river pretty much to ourselves, and we got to see some monkeys!
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time. While Trav was at his “newbie” pollworker training (!!), I poked around in the antique and gift shops, and had a beer at our favorite restaurant there – Kafe Kokopelli. I also went over to the Mexican store and was so excited to see it is a tortilleria. Alas, they are not much better than what we get at the grocery store. They also had chicharrones in HUGE sheets, which was neat.
I also got a chance to play a little more with our new camera. Here’s Walter!
I’m thinking about doing a 30 day “edge only” shopping at the store, which would include produce, meat, eggs, and dairy. We have stuff in our cupboards I would like to use up, so this challenge will help me get creative on using the dry goods. Or, we’ll eat more fresh stuff. Either way, we win!
The power company is doing maintenance so branches don’t take out the wires. They cut down a pretty big tree from our back yard and chipped almost all that good wood!!
The big piece fit perfectly into the wheelbarrow, tipped it in, tipped it out.
Bleys and Carmen are here, to get some wedding stuff done.
We went to our friend’s house for a party, and I swam and played Marco Polo and stuff with all of the young ‘uns. 🙂
We went with our friends Scott and Rachel on the Chassahowitzka River.
We visited Seven Sisters Spring and “The Crack.” Trav and I went through the longer cave for the first time today… it was fun!
To the right, you can kind of see the entrance to the bigger cave. It’s about a ten foot swim to the other side.
I feel bad when we have to remove stuff from the yard, even though it’s so we can have nice things. I take some solace that our changes will make different opportunities for wildlife in our yard. Maybe a bunny or a snake will come live in the brush pile!
Thanks, Dad! You and Michael are my best and most faithful readers.
They cut down some trees out front today, as part of power line maintenance, and it inspired us to do a little trimming of our own.
