That image right there ^^^ was taken by my Dad. Pretty
creepy cool, right? (Or in my case, cool creepy, right?) He’s uber talented when it comes to nature photography. Personally, I prefer his shots of butterflies and dragonflies, but he is nothing if not an equal opportunity wildlife-picture-taker. He enjoys it all. And would probably spend a good amount of time checking out my garden, which has been invaded by these suckers. I, however, am not amused.
Time: 6:04 am
Weather outside: 60.1 degrees, clear and sunny
On my desk: bills, an awesome thank you card I received, 4 USB jump drives, and a sack of marbles (no joke.)
On my nightstand: Southern Living, What’s For Supper cookbook (what? Don’t you look at cookbooks in bed?)
On TiVo: Food Network Star, The Daily Show, and Dallas (ya, baby!)
In my ears: Spell It Out by Gavin DeGraw…have you heard it? It’s my new favorite song. Listen here and fall in love.
In my garden: TONS of cherry tomatoes…and those creepy spiders (seriously gives whole new meaning to the term “Heebie-jeebies”)
In the oven: strawberries…slow cooking at 215 for 4 hours to dehydrate. We’ll see how they turn out.
In my tummy: peach yogurt and granola.
In my future: trip to the pool with the kids.
On tap for dinner: Paul’s all time favorite sandwich.
Latest obsession: Ruffles Loaded Bacon & Cheddar Potato Skins Chips (damn you Ruffles!)
On my mind: food for Wednesday, popsicle molds, and the loss of Nora Ephron (I found out late and am so sad!)
So, my compadres…what’s everyone doing for the 4th of July holiday?
