After our kayak trip, we went to a place called Brooklyn’s Backyard. Not only were the s’mores delicious, we then had fun burning the skewers.
Our friends have a visitor – their German exchange student from last year – and we took him down the river. We saw nine alligators, lots of anhinga and cormorants, turtles, and fish.
We participated in the Great American Cleanup. We started at Crews Lake Park, cleaning up after a big event they had. And then we went out on the street that goes by the park and picked up more. There was stuff we were seeing every day, and now we don’t have to look at it. Yay!
We’re doing another night walk and currently it says 30 people are going and 420 are interested!
I have discovered that I only really like the ones he makes. I’m always disappointed when I get one at a restaurant. Same with steak. His are the best!!
The other day, I got a puffy envelope out the mailbox, and halfway back to the house, I felt something on my hand and when I looked down, I saw something black, so I flicked my arm! Then I realized it was the anole that has been living in the mailbox. I felt so bad… I searched around to see if I could find it and spent two days hoping it could find its way back. And it did. Well, at least I think and hope it’s the same one.
Those little suckers can be nasty! They’re kind of like the goat heads we had in Tucson, but with more spines. And because I like to walk around in the yard barefoot, I sometimes step on them. And if the tip breaks off, it’s all itchy and hurty until it comes out.
Bleys got it for me for Christmas, and it’s really nice! It has a lot of neat features.
They came for dinner of Lucky Pork and Beans and a game of “Joking Hazard” which is very fun and will soon be acquired by us. We also went out to look and found scorpions, spiders, and a centipede. And had delicious blueberry clafoutis for dessert. Lovely visit!
The Kitchen Aid really is awesome, and I’ve been using some of my favorite gadgets more often.
- Sturdy stainless steel cup measures
- Wooden cutting boards
- Chef knife given to us by my parents
- Cast iron cookware
- Cuisinart food processor
We made a delicious coffee cake for Valentine’s Day.
Sometimes the sky looks just right for a rainbow, and if I peek outside, I’m often rewarded with one! Today’s was low and fleeting… when I went back out a couple of minutes later, it was gone.
We got a press recently and the freshly ground beans make a delicious hot beverage!
It’s my favorite season. There are flowers, the trees are budding, and I found my personal favorite – tiny green jewels popping out of the grape vines.
We went to start checking it out for doing night walks there.
Launch photo! We took a short paddle at Werner Boyce Salt Springs, on our way home from working as temps at the elections office today. My poor hat was all smooshed up in the kayak bag.
It’s our favorite new restaurant. Last visit, we treated our friend for her birthday.
