I complain a lot about the winter when it hits about mid-March; but really I do love the seasons and all the weather that comes with it. Of course, I can say that because we are not getting the snow that lots of areas are getting right now! This morning was super foggy and it made for a really nice walk.
Because it was so hard to see more than 30 feet ahead, the dogs were having a great time thinking they could hear all sorts of things without seeing them. It was funny to watch them today. The river looked really nice surrounded by fog.
This is the covered bridge that leads to the "village" side of the river. I park the car just next to it so I don't have to walk that way. It's just a little creepy. If it were nighttime, all I'd be thinking of was the Headless Horseman lol! Today will not be a garden and yard day. It's pouring rain, so I'm going to (try to) catch up on housework before this place is condemned. ;) I think it's a great day for a big comfort meal, I'll likely spend the day in the kitchen!
Last night was appetizer night. I guess a more technology-obsessed person would have seen my title and thought I was speaking in computer talk...my "app" means appetizer! :) I wanted to use up my fresh basil so I made a Bruschetta. We also had some pita bread leftover from souvlaki night, so I cut them up, oiled and salted them and baked them for chips.
I also had leftover drumsticks so I made them like I make my Chicken Wings. We had some fries to go along and it was a great dinner. After dinner, we were both so tired again, we went to bed to watch an old Film Noir called Niagara. I love most of the Film Noirs, at least the thrillers and mysteries...I'm not big on romance...I don't have that "girlie" quality about me! This one was great because it was a thriller set in Niagara Falls. I'd been there many years ago, but it was nice to see how it looked in the 50's! When I went in the 80's it was simply a tourist trap with overpriced museums and restaurants. The falls were stunning though.
Hey look! We finally cut up our first Meyer Lemon! The company said we'd find them sweeter than store bought lemons...ummm...sweeter? I wouldn't say that. There's nothing sweet about a lemon lol...but it did taste more like a sour orange. I have it wrapped and I'm going to squeeze the life out of it today and make a shot glass of lemonade for us! :) Maybe by NEXT spring, the 6 green lemons growing on the tree will become a pint of lemonade!!
I got this nice gift in the mail today from my Blogger friend Kymber. I love getting books, it's such a treat! So thanks again to Kymber for the lovely gift! :) (I guess she'll read this once her internet is back up and running!!!)
