He wasn't answering his work phone but after several tries I got hold of him on his cell as I was just leaving work,
"when do you think you will be able to pull yourself away?"
Well to my surprise he had left work already and was in the checkout at Coop ...
"just picking up some vegetables. I'll meet you at home"
As he often does, my guy was preparing a special evening for the two of us. By the time I got home, his beer was chillin and my martini glass was in the freezer - the martini in the fridge getting nice and cool.
What a nice reception.....
A perfect evening to sit out on the deck.
But what is this meat??
I have never tried alligator - just taken pictures of them. David picked it up at Summit meats on Central. What fun!
We relaxed on the deck, enjoying the warm weather. As David BBQ'd I took up my E 30 and did a walkabout the garden.
...the tiger lillies are running three weeks late.
Heliopsis will be full of yellow blooms soon...
Bleeding hearts are almost finished...
...the hosta's are incredible this year
The lilacs are late but I am enjoying the aroma
Can you see this mama sitting on her eggs? She made her nest in the tall cedar bush next to our house a few weeks ago and we have been keeping a close eye on her. I am sure she is regretting her choice of real estate.
What a wonderful, relaxing Friday evening and the perfect end to a long week. God is good!
Alligator BTW tastes similar to pork or chicken. We likely won't buy it again - because pork and chicken are much less expensive. But it was fun t0 try it.
And here are a few picks from our sat am bike ride....
I guess moving a hot tub is an expensive proposition.
Relaxing weekend - loving the sun and weather.
Hope you have had a great weekend too. Aren't they just too short?
