A prized possession.

I looked inside a message capsule and found a Backstreet Boys magazine from 1999.  Of course, looking at this took me back to the fourth or fifth grade when the boy-band craze was sweeping the world.  Oh nostalgia…

Anyway, someone left their prized possession in a floating message.  Can you believe that?  One of the things I found interesting about the floating messages is the element of chance.  You never know where the messages end up or if the contents will stay dry, so the chance the senders took provided a touching experience.  I know we have been letting people take whatever they want for trade and we have sent off some amazing gifts, but I left all of my prized possessions at home so I would not even have to risk sending them off.  Thanks for sending us your prized possession!  It really made me smile.


Sparkler fun.

Night Dine

Another delightful feast was prepared with the help of some amazing friends.  We grilled shish kabobs with peach, chicken, and onion and we painted a sweet/spicy sauce on them using a rosemary brush.  For our sides we had a fresh salad,  Italian pasta salad, garden pasta salad, and chips!  Of course, to finish our meal we had s’mores with giant marshmallows!  Thank you Kurt, Paul, Alice, Miowa, and Alex for the delicious meal.


Ambient Lightning

Last night, I had a few friends over to cook a late meal and enjoy the night sky.  For a while, there was no rain…only lightning quietly lighting the sky.  The storm was north of us so we were able to safely and dryly enjoy our wonderful lighting/lightning.
