Thursday, Thursday

I have a few random pictures on my phone that I wanted to share. They aren’t in any particular order, so this will be somewhat of a random Thursday. A themeless Thursday .. if you are into alliteration. I am not.

We went for a family walk the other night as the weather is getting cooler.

Barefoot. Just the way I like it.

Koda did a lot of this.

And this was pretty much my view. Lovely, right?

The crepe myrtles are still in bloom and I love them. Plus the deer and bunnies don’t eat them, and that is rare around here.

Speaking of animals eating. Dan and I have a huge muscadine vine that grows on an arbor on the right side of our porch. It is beautiful and helps block the view of the neighbor’s backyard. Last year the muscadines never turned purple, and we learned that we have to cut it back each year if we want edible muscadines. We never cut it back, but also noticed that we weren’t getting many muscadines this year. One night while watching TV, I saw this little guy out the window, enjoying a little midnight snack.

I only got this one with my phone. When I went to grab my big camera, he ran away. I’m sure he will be back – and I’m glad we solved the mystery of the missing muscadines. Alliteration again. Darn it.

I have to share. Sorry Dan. He goes “what kind of animal was that?!” and I said it was an opossum. Dan starts googling and goes, “Kelley, we don’t have a possum, ..I think we have an oh-possum.” …… really?

To his defense, Wikipedia says that in Australia there are animals that are simply “possums” that look just like our opossum. (This is all very weird to type out, by the way). I just started cracking up. Hey - he’s a numbers guy.

And speaking of eating. I made my friend Shannon’s pan fried okra. Which I tried to comment to tell her I had just bought okra from the farmers market, and didn’t know what to do with it, and was super excited to try this recipe, and it was perfect timing. But alas, it wouldn’t send. Blogger must have a thing against rambling.

DELICIOUS. Make it. Read her blog. Do it.

And lastly, I have no transition on this one, except for the word “lastly,” this was the sky on my commute Tuesday morning. 

Absolutely lovely. Always fun to start the morning off with something pretty.
