Date Night Dinner

We are catching glimpses of what it will be like when Peanut is away at school.  Peanut went out Saturday night and so did we!  We went to a restaurant with a touch of Jamaican and Southern.  I ordered black bean tacos.  The Big Guy was so daring.  He ordered a burger!  It was all good.  We just might go out again this weekend as we are hearing some rumblings that Peanut has plans.

Spring in Winter

We took advantage of the warm temps this weekend and went for a bike ride.  My guys are such troopers.  They rode on their heavy mountain bikes in an effort to slow them down and ride at my pace.  There was a bit of a nip in the air when we first started.  But, the wind in our face felt great!  I hope to get back out there soon!

Swim Meet

The swim season is about two weeks from completion for Peanut.  He had a dual meet last Thursday night.  I volunteered to time and snapped these pics as he walked to the block.  I don't think he even knew I was taking them.  He had a great meet, but is itching to start running again!

I got this wonderful platter for Christmas from the boys.  Love it!  What you can't see is the lovely design beneath the veggies.  The potatoes, turnips, sprouts and cabbage was right up there with the platter!

Puzzle Two - History!

As much as the guys did not like my selection of the Christmas puzzle, my guys loved doing this puzzle.  I wonder why?  Peanut is already talking about going to the grocery store, buying one of each and trying all the treats pictured.  Fortunately for us, Peanut doesn't go to the grocery and some of the snacks are no longer made.  It was a fun puzzle and easily divided among people doing the puzzle.
We are off and working on the next puzzle.  It is a bit more of a challenge depicting Times Square.  Peanut's strategy in choosing that was his hope of making a visit to New York City.  We keep telling him he's been there, but he was too young to remember!

Fashion Statement

Pumpkin made my day on Wednesday.  He wore the socks that I knit him.  He must have made a fashion statement at the swim meet.  It was so cold outside.  I bet others were jealous at how cozy his feet were.

I definitely like the hand knit sock look over this sock look!
Best of all, I love his sense of humor and his team spirit!!

All for Buddy

Yesterday morning it was 9 degrees out.  Buddy doesn't care.  So, out I forged to walk him, just a short walk before he got his breakfast.  I got to try out my new cap light that was in my stocking.  It will be better on a baseball cap, but had to keep my eyes toasty with my stocking cap.
It was cold.  We braved the outdoors later in the afternoon when it warmed up for a longer walk.  I do wonder about the pads on the puppy dog's feet.  He doesn't seem phased.  He'll go for a walk any time.  I do think he enjoys the cooler temps over the hot temps!
