Live Real. Eat Real.

Random Tuesday Spring Fever

Stacy

You know, it’s been ages since I’ve participated in Random Tuesday Thoughts, so why the heck not?  Tomorrow, I shall endeavor to have a recipe for you that involves sea scallops and Meyer lemons.

On a whim, early last week, Beloved and I booked a cabin at Hocking Hills State Park.  We drove down Friday morning and came back yesterday afternoon.  It was wonderful – peaceful, with beautiful and sunny, if a tad chilly, weather.  We purchased what turned out to be a pretty large set of dominoes and set about teaching ourselves a couple of games.  There were marathon sessions of Chicken Foot when we weren’t in the hot tub or taking lovely strolls to see sights like this:

Unfortunately, our hopes of having no cell phone reception were dashed.  The kids found us anyway.

The cabin was equipped with satellite television and had both The Food Network and The Cooking Channel.  At one point over the weekend, while playing dominoes, I watched Alton Brown make cottage cheese.  I am SO doing that this weekend – I love the stuff.  Always have.

And while we’re at it, let us be eternally grateful that there is not a Tim Horton’s in Podunk, Ohio.

Hello, my name is Jan and I am powerless over honey crullers.

It proceeded to rain all day yesterday and when we got home, I was loathe to put away my new camera so I ventured outside and took this photo:

The crocus are coming up, and I can’t tell you how absurdly pleased and excited this made me.  Or maybe I can, since I spent 10 minutes hunched over this, attempting to protect my camera with a lawn and leaf bag. I’m sure the neighbors were amused, if not bemused.

“Mabel, that crazy woman across the street is lying in her flower beds, in the rain, with a plastic bag over her head.”

And that’s all I’ve got for today.  You can wake up now, and go visit Stacy to see what other Randomness is going on.
