Morning! Hope your weekend was a good one! We definitely had fun—drinks with our department members on Friday night, a fundraiser at a local brewery on Saturday night, and lots of sunshine and enjoying the new backyard on Sunday:
Lila LOVES the new backyard. There are lots of trees, bushes, and little nooks and crannies to explore. She also loves the swing-set, not surprisingly. And she’s not the only one. Imagine our surprise last night when Ella, after studying the set for a few minutes:
…climbed right up the ladder to see me!
I was shocked!
Cattledogs = wonder dogs. Seriously.
Poor Baxter wanted to climb up too…but I don’t think that’s happening any time soon:
Playing in the yard so much has me seriously ready for summer. It’s not quite here yet—our temps are still a little chilly, especially when the sun goes down. But you can tell it’s coming!
Since we were in summer mode, we went with another summer staple for dinner:
Grilling! Grilled chicken, marinated for 2 hours in: juice from 2 limes, 1 tbsp. sugar, 2 tsp. soy sauce, and 1 tsp. fish sauce. Yum! Nicely sweet and sour. Plus grilled asparagus and brown rice—simple and delicious!
Tonight is my last night of teaching my poetry class, and that’s not until 5:30—lots of time to play before then. Make it a great one!
