A few years ago, my Mister & I discovered that we had gotten old.
I know, it was a surprise to us too.
It was almost too much for us to take when we found we couldn't stay awake during an evening movie at the theater. Of course, the movie we napped during was the Woody Allen movie, "Hannah & Her Sisters", so age may not have been entirely to blame. But then we discovered that we could no longer have a coffee after 11 a.m., eat anything spicy after 4, or have any liquid after 6 p.m. without some serious nighttime consequences.
It put a real crimp in our date nights.
Now we have date days. Other people might call them errands, but add a little lunch, some classic rock on the radio, and a lot of laughter, and we call it a date.
We just happen to get home before dark.☺
Typically, we grab a latte, swing into a local burger shop, then head to the dump. But not today. Today was special. We left the work gloves and the garbage cans at home and headed south.
First we had a little impromptu photo shoot~Because I was wearing make-up & the Mister was nice & scruffy...just the way I like him.
|No, he was not whispering sweet nothings...he was actually saying something about peri-rectal abscesses. Have I mentioned that he's an emergency room nurse?|
|After stopping for a Peppermint Mocha latte, we ended up at the Mill that is Red. Bob was NOT in the building today.|
|This is what 50#'s of rolled oats, 50#'s of white flour, and 25#'s of hard white wheat, and 25#'s of pastry wheat look like. Now we need to find a place to stuff it until needed. This is where the real fun begins!|
After loading up with enough wheat berries and beans to last the whole winter long, we found out that there was a bee supply store a mere 4.5 miles away.
Let me just mention here that while I have a weakness for wheat berries and beans, my Mister has a weakness for anything related to beekeeping.
|Actually, this is the future beehive #2.|
He also likes to save money, so it looks like he'll be spending the rest of this winter putting this little beehive puzzle together.
Not to worry...I asked for an instruction page just in case it's not done by March.☺
The kids were busy while we were gone too.
|Chocolate cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting~emphasis on peanut butter.|
They also got out the Christmas lights, just in case we were relaxed enough to put them up when we got home.
It may take another cupcake before that happens...
