The dog park, that is!
Despite having wind advisories (gusts up to 50 mph), I was determined to spend as much time outside as possible this weekend! I’ve been cooped up in the office so much these past few weeks that I haven’t gotten enough vitamin D in my life!
So for part of Saturday Chris and I headed to the park!
Rocky ran and played and made friends
Rocky was having a blast & the weather felt great (minus the wind!)
Then, later in the evening, I made a 100% homemade dinner of fried chicken, mashed potato and gravy, and rolls, like a good southern woman
Sure not the healthiest of meals, but it’s called for every once in awhile!
Side Note: Since I’ve started this blog I’ve been doing so much cooking from scratch! My fried chicken and mashed taters used to be one of the only things I did from scratch – now I’m doing pancakes, granola bars, waffles, muffins, pop-overs, and hopefully I’ll be mixing in the use of yeast – for bread & rolls – soon (I’ve been so scared to do so in the past!) It’s exciting to be expanding my horizons!
I ate mine with a side of veg. He ate his with….more gravy
After dinner, Chris & I had a little date. We decided to go see Joey Medina (of the Latin King’s of Comedy) at Laffs in Tucson. It was a great time! Even though we paid for “general admission”, somehow we got VIP seating directly next to the stage! All of the comics were hilarious – Joey even interacted with the audience & included Chris & me in his discussion about marriage! It was so cool to have the “rock star” seats!
And the server was super attentive, too. I had a couple of these guys that were TOO GOOD, ya know?
It was champagne with Chambord (raspberry liqueur). omg delish! It was a fun evening!
And remember when I showed you my shadow box before? I rearranged it awhile back like I had wanted, but never took an “after” shot. Here it is.
Will you just look and see the difference in quality of picture from my phone’s camera versus my old, regular camera? omg, it’s ridiculous!
I’ve spent most of today reading and working on grading and lectures, with hefty spurts of cleaning and laundry interjected. I think it’s looking like more of the same this afternoon and evening.
Do you get “off” work for President’s Day? Or is it really only a holiday for the postal system?
