Cooking Free Night

Another trip to Boston Pizza and this time I remembered to bring my camera along. It was a nice evening out. The place was busy, but the service was good and the food was delicious.

Days in June

Several years ago we had a yard full of flower beds. We had many kinds of perennials and also lots of annuals. My favorite annual was the petunia. Now we don't have too many flowers anymore, but there are a few blooming despite the changing weather.

Street Festival

Well, we woke up to a beautiful sunny day. Mind you it was a little cool, but that's better than walking in the rain. Talking about getting wet, there were those getting wet in the dunk tank. The main street of town was closed to traffic, instead was full of people and activities. Crafts and plants were for sale, popcorn, cotton candy, hotdogs, etc. The crowds were being entertained by singers and musicans on stage in the gazebo. Kids were jumping in the bouncy castles and adults were looking for bargains!

Much Needed Rain

It's raining for more than five minutes! WOW! It must be a dry year, otherwise we would not appreciate this much rain. It does look pretty wet out. The Street Festival committee is probably a little worried about tomorrow's activities. They've been planning this outdoor event for a year now. The weather is indeed unpredictable! The other day it was very warm and now it's turned rather chilly and it's raining the night before the big day! Hopefully it will rain itself out overnight and tomorrow will again be sunny and suitable for a Street Festival - Mexican style.

Summery Day

It was warm and sunny outside today. I even went to work without a jacket this morning! I hope it's not our only day of summer. I also noticed that our Burr Oak has made it through another winter. It is slower than the other trees in leafing out. It looks so dead when everything else is showing signs of life. I'm afraid if someone else moved in here, they would have cut it down already.

I decided today also was a good day to return refundable containers to the depot. What a messy looking place that is. Now that the milk containers have a deposit on them, we'll be making more trips to the depot. What a job that will be. I really don't know if those places are ready for that kind of volume. At least the one here I don't think is.
