This was a pretty busy week around here…lots of walking, cooking, shopping, reading and movie watching. Yep…pretty darn busy!
The weather has been so nice…for at least three days…so we walked the park. I love it because Den can go on ahead and I can walk at my own pace and eventually we sort of meet in the middle! But bad weather is coming our way…for the weekend!
We started stopping at farmers markets again for all things local! Lettuces and flowers and radishes…they taste so delicious! Except we aren’t eating the flowers! Local strawberries are in, too!
We fell in love with two new things this week! This root beer and these cookies! The root beer is local…the cookies are wafer cookies from Italy. We saw these at Costco a few weeks ago but we were afraid to buy a giant bag of them…Den brought these home from our Country Butcher…it’s a very small but very expensive bag of no junk added vanilla wafer cookies. The Costco bag that we passed by was a giant bag of both vanilla and chocolate! Sigh! If you are lucky enough you might find hazelnut and lemon, too. The lemon ones are supposed to be…well…lemony…really lemony!
Weren’t there Nabisco wafers? The childhood cookie…these are about a million times better!
Speaking of Costco we needed some things that we find we are loving from Costco. So we zipped out there instead of our long outdoor walk today. When we sub Costco for the park…we walk up and down every aisle in the store! Even the cold room! I think I got 2500 steps just from Costco! And we found some new stuff to buy! My freezer is full of organic chicken…everything at Costco seems to come in threes! We also now crave this massive red bag of popcorn from Costco…and I love Kirkland’s Pesto! It’s perfect for the totellina pesto pasta salad I am making!
We finally saw Black Panther! We were a little surprised at how sort of slow it was…in the beginning. We had it for a few days so we put off watching the ending u til this morning! It was wonderful! I love giant mechanical rhinos!
I am almost finished with this and it’s so good…you can’t help but want good things to happen to Van…he’s small, hard of hearing and because his mom is a famous opera singer he is always moving and always the new kid in school…this book is about stealing wishes and it’s just so sweet and scary all at the same time.
I am playing around with Emily Griffin book but I really want to read this one next…this author’s first book was a fave of mine.
And what is up with WordPress? My Wednesday post is now before my Monday post…am I seeing things? I didn’t do anything! It’s just like my email this week…I keep getting pop ups saying my name has changed and I can’t send email! And then when I scream and send it a hundred times…it sends! Sometimes I hate tech stufff!
Off to rest…Den is outside mowing because our lawn guy still can’t get caught up. Den is not liking this situation at all. Sigh! Poor Den!
