A Little Of This And That

Hiking is good for us—yes it is—are we trying to convince ourselves, no we know how we feel after hiking four miles—great!  Off we went this morning to what has become again our favorite place, the Cedar Scrub Preserve.  About halfway through our walk we heard this little guy and were able to pick out which tree from which he was getting his morning snack.

Michael worked on the taxes again—I began to dread the sound of “do you remember last April when you------?”  How in the world am I supposed to remember a week ago what I charged on the American Express much less almost a year ago???? 

My pizza dough frozen last week worked well today to make another delicious pizza—finally I’m successful in making pizza dough!  After lunch I worked on that blessed quilt fixing the rest of my mistakes—the rows are all done, now to sew those together and get the borders on. 

We took a break late afternoon and went into town for a couple grocery items—I wanted to make this soup I found in a magazine, Pasta Figioli—it has kale (which I bought at the produce stand last Thursday, white beans and various other things—my husband ate it!!!  and said, “it’s not too bad!”  Not a supreme compliment but at least he didn’t say, “could we not have this again!”

My friend Kelly from Kansas City after visiting us last summer sent Michael and I a collection of DVD’s entitled The National Parks, America’s Best Idea, a film by Ken Burns.  For the last four nights we have watched one of the almost 2 hour long DVD’s.  They are without a doubt awesome, we have both learned so much about our national parks—there are 58 national parks not counting national monuments.  The photography is stunning and the commentary very interesting—how our parks came to be is an incredible story.

Another beautiful day in Florida!
