Both Odd and Awesome

This week shall go down as the week that was both odd and awesome. Although odd, son and his friend got things off to a fun start by shoving pillows up their shirts. How can you not have an awesome week after you see this?

Mom & I went for a drive to town one morning and noticed these majestic birds along the road. Ooooo ahhhh.

Wait. What? Are those chickens? Oh, they’re wild chickens. Are they turkeys? They’re kinda ugly.

Turkey vultures. I should be honest with you. These guys down-right freaked me out. I’d never seen a vulture before. And I’ll be okay if I never come across one again.

On to prettier things like, you know, individual scalloped potatoes for guests. I’m not completely sure why I felt the need to photograph these all wrapped up and ready to bake for the next morning, but you’re welcome.

Impromptu iced tea with lemon ready in 43 minutes. It’s what I do.

And in the spirit of saving the best for last, the police chief’s retirement party was this week. Here he is being silly with son and dotter. He is like family to us and they love him. Congratulations, Jim!


And in more awesome news, I went to a wonderful dinner put on by Outstanding in the Field and Full Circle Farms in Carnation, Washington. It’s worth checking out and then looking for a dinner in your area. Each dinner is different… some are held in Napa Valley’s vineyards and others on the beach. You can read more about our dinner here.

And finally, I leave you with French press coffee.  Here’s to a new week.
