Now that I'm in the 2nd half of my life, I've decided that it's time I challenge the fussy eater in me. So I have vowed to try a new food every week. And I'm going to try to post it here so that I can commit to at least ONE blog post every week. Yes, I know I'm exposing myself to "You've GOT to be kidding? You've never tried that?" responses, but hey, it's a commitment!! So you're not allowed to laugh at me!!!
Last weekend, I had back-to-back days of babysitting my granddaughter. Her favorite activity? Playing in the dirt. The result?
|I love that she doesn't mind getting dirty!|
I don't go on Facebook as much as I used to and, frankly, I'm not missing it. Maybe it's just a summer thing. But I'm okay with it!
I start my new position at work on Monday. Looking forward to that. Got a glowing review from my boss on the position I am currently in. Nice to know he notices the little things!!
We finally got some rain in the area, amid the high temps. I'm always amazed that at my daughter & son-in-law's place, who live 25 mins. away, the temps can sometimes be 20 degrees cooler than where I live. And sometimes they get a downpour and we get nothing. I guess that's what happens to weather patterns near Lake Michigan.
But now that we got the rain, the weeds remember what their job is. So I've got a weekend of weeding to do.
My plan is to transform my backyard into a perennial garden over the next couple of years. I am in awe of the garden that Leslie over at Goldens and Garden has and decided that I can take the back third of my yard and create a garden that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and most likely rabbits. So I'm on mission. These are a start...

(Doesn't this look like a Stargazer Lily?)
My daughter and I took a class on getting comfortable with our DSL cameras (moving to manual shooting). So I've been practicing with that. Not sure I have any pics that stand out. But it's been fun trying out all the settings.

When I look at how she and her little ones
are dining on my veggies,
I'm thinking she's not so cute!

(Yeah, I know I'm biased. But it's my blog!!)
So, I can't remember what I ate this week that was new (damn memory!!), but the week before it was bamboo shoots. And I'm still living (as one of my co-workers observed!!!). Edit - Okay, the love of my life just reminded me what I ate last week. Goat cheese. Opinion: I can take it or leave it.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Stay cool and hydrated.
