tonight i did not fall well. so i earned a gnarly road rash and ripped jeans. and no i wasn’t going down the super steep hill at top speed like the other day. just rolling down off the sidewalk into street AT SLOW SPEED hit a crack and then maybe a pebble and BAM!
it does makes me think twice about rolling down the monster hill again at night with no pads
in wisconsin gas stations you’ll find cheese curds. In downeast maine if you’re lucky you’ll find dried fish. a.k.a. strip fish or salt fish. I so very much love it and it’s getting harder and harder to find. It’s sort of like a very salty fish jerky. Many thanks to my sister who cleaned out a gas station in jonesport so I could take a bunch home.
it’s not like we never eat fast food, but I love that odin prefers to eat the homemade steak Caesar salad we prepared for the trip and doesn’t even ask for fast food available at plaza.
kinda, sorta, strangely compelled to try the savory twinkie burger.
it’s aaaaaallllll for odin
the lego movie is turning into yearly tradition. every time we watch it we pick up on subtleties missed in prior viewings.
“at least it’s not a nipple fissure!”
i was dragging it a bit on a 13 mile run and thought i could use some easy energy so i made a pitstop at the house and grabbed what i thought was a bottle of honey from the pantry. downed a tablespoon and thought, “oooooh what delicious artisan honey is this? and how did it get such strong vanilla notes?
i turned the bottle over. aaaahhhhh, not honey after all.
we have soon many black currants ready to be harvested. picked four or five quarts today and there are probably five times that left on the bush!
future black currant compote or jam ( what’s the difference? ).
even after giving frida more than her fair share still ended up with five quarts of delicious raspberries. probably fifteen more quarts yet to be picked!
wow, how time flies – we haven’t had this crew together for 6 years! since then some have been born, many have gotten bigger and at least one of us has gotten much smaller always great to see family. odin had a grand time with his cousins.
i’m sure somewhere i have a photo of us the last time we got together that i should dig out.
as always, the odds are slim of getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time in family photos.
