I have every intention of making a carrot cake today. It'll be my first ever carrot cake, so cross your fingers for me. I already bought cream cheese frosting and everything. I'm also going to Wallyworld today, though, so I may not have the gumption to shred a bunch of carrots by the time I get home.
Hubs saw a fawn yesterday! It's a little earlier in the summer than usual to see fawns, but yay! I missed it because I was in the middle of making dinner and the french fries were this close to done. By the time they were done, the fawn was gone.
The Prothonotary warblers decided not to use the bird house. Bummer. Just as well, though, because they were making life difficult for the other birds who were trying to eat.
I tried quitting ice cream again. Made it three days. To substitute, I made rice pudding. It was pretty good, but it just wasn't the same. Maybe I'll just try to eat smaller bowls of it.
Why would someone move out to the back of beyond and still expect things to work like they work in a city? For instance, we have hard water. I think it's awesome because I grew up on well water. Not everyone gets that it's filled with minerals, though. So, yes, I get calcium deposits on damn near everything. Back home, the water was very iron rich which meant rust deposits. You learn to live with it. Vinegar and baking soda is awesome for removing mineral deposits, by the way. We also have snakes. And various other critters. And we have a lack of rules out here, too. No ordinances. No building inspectors. No HOA. Personally, Hubs and I think it's perfect. Other people? Not so much. :shrug:
Gah, I keep trying to write this post and then getting interrupted and/or distracted over the past hour now, so I might as well just post the damn thing.
Got anything on your this n that radar today?
