I had never noticed this fancy light post. I wonder if they realize water and electricity are not a good mix. I do love old pumps, but I find this use too confusing.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of some markings on the road. I had hope the marking that looked like a dollar sign indicated I would be receiving lots of cash soon. Turns out someone will be receiving some
cash soon - looks expensive!
By the way I only recently learned the diagonal stripes on these signs point in the direction you are supposed to drive - drive on the side the lines point down toward the road. Once I learned that I can't stop noticing the stripes on signs everywhere. It took everything I had not to stop and adjust these!!
I have noticed this mailbox before but the lamp post/pump made me think to stop and take a picture of it too.
I was waiting for my husband to meet and walk back to our house together. I couldn't help but try to take silly shadow pictures. It was a bit challenging to pose and take the picture too. I wanted them to be a little crazier. Does this shadow make my butt look big??? :)
I made peach ice cream today - sorry forgot to take pictures. I got an ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer (aka SuperMixer) last Christmas. I've only made ice cream once. Then with us trying to watch our eating I haven't made any this summer. Peach season made it too hard to resist. I have one more batch to freeze then I will have about three quarts. We have a game night every first Friday of the month at my sister's house. I thought it would be a good treat to take (everyone brings snacks). That way I can enjoy ice cream without having a whole tempting batch in my freezer.
My niece came over to help with the ice cream. She is not a peach fan and wanted chocolate ice cream - so we took her to Dairy Queen. I know it is crazy that we were making ice cream and then went out for ice cream. She got a blizzard and I had a few bites of it (tracked them). Oh, that ice cream was so good...been awhile since I'd had chocolate ice cream. I think SuperMixer's next ice cream will be chocolate.
We had a bigger lunch than usual (Mexican - we split arroz con pollo) so we decided on Subway for dinner to stay within our calories. Should I be concerned about what the girl wrote on my husband's sandwich wrapper?? I guess it is better than her phone number :)
We have made our final destination plans for a little trip with my niece and nephew in August. We are going to Nashville TN. We plan to kayak and probably some hiking. And there will be some city sightseeing and eating. Any suggestions for things to see/do? Or things to avoid?
