Getting it Done….

In my search for frozen treats that I can eat, I came across this contraption…

It had great reviews so the Girl and I headed out to Bed Bath and Beyond to pick one up. Unfortunately even though it said they had one…no one could find it. Fortunately they take expired coupons and she waived the shipping so I will get it next week for $29.99. I was disappointed but there wasn’t much I could do about it.

Then we stopped at the Italian grocery store and did our shopping a day early. Plus I knew they had bananas on sale for .29 a pound. I am ready for the Yonana and have a freezer full of bananas.

The Girl seems more interested in getting her license since my Little Buddy and her girlfriend volunteered to teach her. So she got up early this morning and we were out at the test center by 8am and at the BMV by 8:40ish. I was meeting my two friends from Italian class at 10 am so if she wanted her permit, we had to do it early.

While she was in there taking her test…again…I was outside playing with my camera.

I don’t think they are so bad for a beginner? The more I play, the better I will get.

On our way to the BMV I turned down a cut through street only to be greeted by a gaggle of ducks waddling down the street. They were taking up the whole lane and marching fearlessly towards the car. By the time the Girl got her phone out, they had moved to the side. It was pretty funny.

I had a nice visit with the ladies from Italian class and I loved looking at the pictures from her trip to Italy last month. I even braved the menu and ate something. Microwaved eggs, fake bacon, cheddar cheese and some green onions. I didn’t feel bad, just a tiny bit bloated. It’s too soon to tell if I will get bumps on my cheeks from the cheese. That’s progress though. It was some kind of breakfast taco, I told them to keep the sour cream and tortilla shells. In my defense…I didn’t know it was microwaved. I should have known when the girl behind the counter gave me the ingredients which included yellow eggs?

I left there and ran out to the farm to buy my eggs for the week. I stopped at the eagle’s nest while I was out there. Nothing exciting was happening at the nest but I did follow the sound and find this cute little guy.

I came home and found this by little patch of garden by the side door.

I think he needs a name and a story. Some may just see a walnut shell, I see a story. There isn’t even a walnut tree in my yard? I love random gifts from Mother Nature. Speaking of gifts from nature, check this out…..

Scattered in the front of the house and back by the non garage there are wild strawberries everywhere. I have no idea where they came from but I will be using them, even if it’s just in our water.

We also have a few new weavers around the house. The Girl won’t fill the bird feeders because this one has it’s web right above the container.

I was able to move the brick that has the web attached, fill the feeders and put the brick back. She is still out there which is good. I was worried I might have scared her away. I talked to her the whole time, maybe she knew I didn’t mean her any harm? She is a pretty green color, I have never seen one like her before. I noticed another one between the bushes in the front.

I also tried to eat my favorite meatballs today. I only bought a tiny bit…1/2lb of the meatball mix to put in the sauce since I was making spaghetti squash for dinner. I didn’t feel horrible after I ate it but I didn’t feel great either. This was a sad part of my day… I’ll figure it out though and find a new way to eat meatballs without the gluten. It will just take me some time….Zia
