a toasty weekend


we're having a toasty hot weekend here in middle america, and enjoying every bit of it. this afternoon we passed a group of tightrope walkers in the park who invited us to join them. my older daughter took them up on the offer. i would have fallen on my (fill in the blank) so i declined. we ran into our dentist at the ice cream parlor/sweet shop downtown, a delicious irony there. now we're off to make mini cupcakes for school tomorrow, the semi-annual library book sale, and after that i think an early bedtime might be in order for the girls. i'm beat. i think this day should close with a batch of smoking hot salsa and a beer on the front porch.

a big thanks to soulbrush for her generous blog award this week. so, to pass on the blog goodness: for any of my current favorites, please slink over to the 'inspired by' column. any one of these will direct you to some serious creative food. thank you, soulful soulbrush!

p.s. as for this guy above? i don't know who he is, but he keeps getting a yukety yuk out of something silly i did this morning. i'll post more tomorrow about that :)

Brrrr. Turned suddenly cold and rainy here. Must have all gone to Kansas! But this illo sure cheers me up! Can't wait to hear about the HA HAs.

Listen, I could inundate you with award upon award. I've given you yet another one because this one was about friendship. Any time you want me to stop giving you awards, just say the word. Cheers.

i long for some time to spend at the porch (although I happen to have a patio, not a porch...)
We are enjoying good weather around here too.
I'm curious about your story...

Whatever you did it must have been pretty funny from the looks of this.

it was more of a mind blip than a story, and nothing earth shattering, but still funny.

and i DID finish off yesterday with a boulevard pale ale.

thank you again, bellissima bella. i love your awards! :)

tiny red: seriously, how did you block it from going to that devil, google reader? some fancy techno maneuver?

please sir said...

Oh I love days like that!

love the fact that you met the dentist at the sweet shop...i have often felt that dentists like cheating too!
