Welcome Friday – so glad to see you! I had a great night’s sleep last night, hooray! I actually got up later than normal at 7:30. I was going to go for a morning ride, but then just decided on breakfast.
Work very busy today. I am curious as to whether I will be working on Monday. If we don’t have power, I won’t be working.
I took a quick snack break of a plum:
I went out for a porch lunch today. I had the rest of the ricotta puffs (not so puffy) topped with peanut flour mixed up with water, honey and cinnamon.
The bees were also out en masse eating lunch. This time of year the bees really start collecting pollen.
They especially love the sedum:
I do get that close the the bumblebees, too. I love the bumbles. They are really non-aggressive and you can get in their face and they don’t care.
More Giallarda (it rained last night):
My white liriope:
I wonder what this garden will look like after 65+ mile per hour winds hit it on Sunday.
I can’t believe I got my finger in that shot with a digital camera. D’uh!
I also took a picture of my neighbor’s chimney. They have a guest.
Me thinks that chimney may have issues during Irene. I hope it falls the other way and not towards our house as only a driveway separates us.
The afternoon was so gorgeous that John and I played hooky and went out for a bike ride along the path.
Surprise, surprise at where we stopped!
This was mango flavored froyo topped with coconut. Yes indeed. The color is a little funny because we were under a red umbrella.
The day is so beautiful. I can’t believe how conditions are going to deteriorate over the next couple days. Can you imagine back in the day before there was radar? You wouldn’t even know it was coming.
Gourmet dinner tonight. I sauteed up some broccoli and shrimp and then added half an ounce of cream cheese and a splash of milk to the pan to make a cream sauce. Topped with a little parmesan.
This was sooo good! John said it had too much broccoli in it. Pfffffft.
I disagree. I may have to go run off with Green Giant. I think he will appreciate how much I love broccoli!
We hope to get out early Saturday for a bike ride before conditions start to deteriorate. It all depends on how windy it is. Then battoning down the rest of the hatches for Irene! I hate the waiting for it.
Two more grain-free days to go!
