It’s Thursday And I Can Dance Agin!

I got kicked out of ballet class because I pulled a groin muscle… it wasn’t mine.

Dang, I was full of energy this morning. We had our glass of champagne and then I turned on the over to 350 and ran for the crescent rolls and a can of apple pie filling…I went ot work…with assistance from “you know who”.

So I tried one and it was good but how good? IDEA!!! Let’s try Del who is a conna-sewer of apple goodies. So I took two next door and I go the report an hour later!

Your apple turnovers were just right. No additional sugar sprinkles or anything needed the apple filling was sweet enough. pastry was nice and soft. Del says to really conduct an accurate test he needs three more.funny man. Thank you, it came just at the right time too.

GREAT! I have created a monster so in the morning and am going to do four more… one for me and three for Del! I love it!

It’s a walking day…well, it is a MUST go to the store and get blue berries or else! I made the journey but made a mistake and got everything on the list including laundry soap… They gets heavy on the hour walk home!

As you can see, I made it home at 11:05 AM just in time to take Sue to the barber shop!

The the way home I took a couple of snaps pf the roses using the iPhone’s new features!

After the barber visit we decided to go to Taco Surf for lunch… Good choice, I had three tacos and Sue ordered he standard fare.

Returning home, I attacked the garden where we had two dandelion trees in the back garden! Trees did I say…yes, trees. They were three feet high and growing!

Did You Know? Everything, from the flower all the way down to the roots, is edible. And, dandelions also happen to be delicious. The taste of dandelion resembles a slightly bitter green like arugula. You can eat them fresh in salads, or cook them on the stove.

Every part of the dandelion is useful: root, leaves, flower. It can be used for food, medicine and dye for coloring. Up until the 1800s people would pull grass out of their lawns to make room for dandelions and other useful “weeds” like chickweed, malva, and chamomile.

You can eat every part of the dandelion—roots, stems, leaves and flowers. One option is to fry the flowers in a batter and make dandelion fritters. People have also incorporated dandelions into several beverages: grinding the roots for a coffee-like drink, or even making dandelion wine.

Only in the twentieth century did humans decide that the dandelion was a weed. Before the invention of lawns, the golden blossoms and lion-toothed leaves were more likely to be praised as a bounty of food, medicine and magic. Gardeners used to weed out the grass to make room for the dandelions.

 

I filled a 100 gallon trash container with these wild bushes and then worked in the soil for an hour or so…felt pretty good. We must get the planting beds in shape for the upcoming season.!

After that, a nap was in order! But before that I tried to fix my front yard lights…since the rain they were acting goofy! One of the light operated with the power turned off! They are LED’s and the measurements seemed goofy. I worked on it for an hour and gave up. Going to try again tomorrow.

After a short nap, we were off to the Phoenix Club where we met up with Nancy/Vince and the Zaitz. We danced until about 9:30 PM having a lot of fun since the arm does not cause so much pain! Great fun!

We watched Mrs. Maisal and Mr. Morningstar having our evening tookies! We leave you with an important thought for the day!
