Looks like nature is going to put on her own 4th of July fireworks tonight! There's a huge electrical storm just on the horizon looking out from my balcony and it's fantastic!
And here's my blog entry from earlier today. I didn't get to post in because the laptop crashed :)
I'm not feeling particularly star spangled yet, bit it's not even midday and I've yet to venture out into the world of July 4 fever. The television keeps telling me to 'be thankful for my freedoms, liberties and other flag waving buzzwords' and it seems that I should do that by going out and buying a Texas Edition truck or a side by side fridge-freezer! I've just realised that I have forgotten to wear the red, white and blue underpants that I bought especially to celebrate Independence Day! (and also because my washing bags were full and I'd run out of clothes) Oh well.
I'm about to head out to the airport to drop John and Jo off, as part of the mass exodus of friends. Luckily for me Mr Squiggle hasn't been eaten by coyotes and is looking as plump and happy as ever, so I can at least hang out with him, even if we are separated by glass walls. I think I may have turned him into a bit of a princess though... I was watching him peel grapes before eating them yesterday!
I got up this morning hoping to spend some of my day off playing WoW, only to discover that they're running maintenance and ALL the servers are down! They have 6 million players, more than half of whom are probably american, and they schedule maintenance on the one day people are not working and able to play??? Anyhow, I cooked myself a fry up and read the Current instead ^_^
This intermittent blog follows the random adventures of my family and me. We are a two mum family with our awesome three year old Marty Roo (formerly baby Tuesday) and our newest addition, Kenzie the Kelpie.
I love cooking and far too much of this blog is about food, traveling and eating. For me, cooking for people is how I tell them I love them.
I am a statistical geneticist, geek, gamer, inherently lazy, cheese addict and whisky drinker.
Right now we're working on settling back in to Tassie, holding on to memories and friends in Texas and getting into the rhythm of life. It is a fun ride and y'all are welcome to join us!
