In fact, I've said it a dozen times in the past several weeks:
"I'm going to blog tonight!"
I end up sitting down at the computer, opening up blogger, and reading a thousand other blogs that are really pretty, interesting, and not-boring. And then I think: "my life is so boooooring".
And maybe it is. But I guess that just means I can have a boring blog, right? As long as I'm writing it down, I'm happy.
Glad I got that off my chest. So, here is what I did today:
I woke up bright & early and scrubbed the house like a mad woman. My aunt was coming to visit the house for the first time today (along with my cousin and her son- she's been here before but not since it's been moved into). I had surgery a few weeks ago (more about that in a future post?) and they were coming to visit.
Jim tended to the yard work while Sadie sulked.
My aunt loves all things lemon so I went to work making these amazing lemon bars.
The recipe calls for Meyer lemons, and since I've made these two other times VERY successfully with just that, I stopped by the only store I've ever known to sell them yesterday. They were out. I settled for regular lemons and added honey for sweetness per the sales rep. But that did not stop Jim from buying me...
a Meyer lemon tree today. For future lemon bars!
After my aunt and cousin arrived we did a little downtown touristy shopping. Here's one of my favorite little shops:
Where I fell for and bought this hat:
I bought a few other goodies:
Which leads me to now. I love beer in the summer & fall. My current fav is a local brewery, endorsed by Dave Matthews himself:
Although you can usually find me with a Magic Hat in hand, this one gets 8.5 stars.
