Mini Road Trip

Good morning,

We're off on a mini road trip to Central Ohio to celebrate my brother's birthday with him.
We could not have had a more beautiful day for our trip.  Even the traffic was great.
Ohio has wonderful farm land and Ohio Farmers know how to make it prosper.  We are very fortunate here in Ohio that we had one of the first agricultural schools at The Ohio State University.  Farming is serious business here.

More of our mini road trip to come!

Norwegian Comfort Food

Good morning,

Sometimes you just have to have some comfort food.

My Honey made the sauce for this comfort food, Norwegian Fish Balls.  The white sauce included bacon and green onion so it had to be good!

In traditional fashion it is served with boiled potatoes and, of course, at our house with my home made fresh bread. 

Can you say "carbs?"

Final Touches

Good morning,

My Honey snapped this picture as I was putting the final touches on the border of a full size Pink Lovers afghan blanket. 

So soft and comfy!

Brio Tuscan Grille

Good morning,

We had lunch with friends at Tuscan Brio Grille at Newport on the Levee.  This is the second time we've been here and will surely go again.
The lunch menu has plenty of choices and we had no problem finding what we wanted.
It was shrimp for me and...
...grilled chicken for My Honey.

Yum!

Sushi Night

Good morning,

If you are a sushi lover, this image will make you hungry!

My Honey and I enjoyed this sushi with our daughter, Catherine, and a friend.  It didn't take us long to clear that tray. 

Yum!

What's for Dinner?

Good morning,

This sweet face appeared beside my desk.
She asked, "What's for dinner?"
"Will it be soon?"
"Oh, good!  Let's go eat now!"

Another Hibiscus

Good morning,

We have hibiscus in white and many different shades of pink. 

Each morning I wake to a new group of blossoms.  I just love this color.

We are enjoying the warm weather while we still have it, but sure are looking forward to cool Fall days.
