A Look At Our Week
I never went away to college and I have often wondered what that experience would have been like. Well, I am finally getting my taste of the college life. My guy and I are staying in a college dorm until June 11th while he is teaching drum corps. He is the perfect college roommate (even if his side of the dorm is a little messy.) I spend my days transcribing while I watch as he works. I have brought many tasks with me to keep me busy but have had very little time to work on any of them yet. I have not even crocheted this week and my crochet to do list is very long. I am sure I will find time for it all before we go back home.
You would have thought we really were going off to college with everything we had packed in the car!
I did manage to grab a picture of the horses on our land just before we left. I was thrilled to learn it is actually three horses instead of two. Still no signs of the cows so we have assumed they were moved when the horses came in.
During one of my college walks I saw a squirrel. He was not phased by me at all. I was impressed with his dark color. His fur was almost black. Must be an Indiana squirrel thing.
We had to stop for a line of ducks as we were entering Indiana. Our animal antics seem to follow us everywhere!
One of our favorite activities to do together is road tripping! We have had some of our best conversations while on the road. No way for either person to escape, it’s the perfect talking place! Unfortunately, the talks on this trip mainly were about how we hoped my car, Rosie was going to make it to Indiana and back home. Rosie’s had a lot of issues since we bought her just five years ago. We will have to start looking for her replacement very soon.
Our favorite snack while road tripping is McDonald’s chicken nuggets. You don’t have to tell us just how bad they are, we know! But we just love to split a 20 piece (or two) and experiment with all the different dipping sauces as we go down the road. Barbecue and Hot Mustard are his favorites while Sweet & Sour and Honey Mustard are mine.
I spent a little time in my garden before we left. I weeded the tomato rows since they seem to be the only thing still standing. I’m not quite sure what I will find once I return but I am anxious to find out. It has been a fun learning experience for sure.
The roses were blooming as we were packing up the car. The bush is right next to our front porch. I love roses and they always make me think about my sweet Daddy. When I was younger I told my Daddy that I wanted peach roses at my wedding. He planted every shade of peach rose he could find in his flower bed. He always took such pride in his flower beds and landscaping. I always think about him during this time of year when flowers are in full bloom.
What’s for Dinner?
We have done it again. We have found an amazing five star restaurant in the middle of nowhere. The most delicious steak I have ever ate!
