Precip & Pig & Postcards

The rain.  The rain.  The rain.

 Will it ever end?
 Apparently, no.

Despite the rain, Bobaloo and I went to a party last Saturday.
There was a pig roast.  I'm a vegetarian and tried to avoid eye contact.

Aside from the pig there was music, bubbles, tye-dye, and plenty of tom-foolery.  We had a good time.  Pikes Peak is in the picture below but you can't see it because of the weather.

I started Postcrossing again and forgot how much I missed it.  I got my first postcard with the Eiffel Tower on it yesterday.

À la prochaine!

Front Porch Jam Session

I bought a ukulele from a couple of weeks ago.  I tested my musical talents (ha!) over the weekend.

It was a bit chilly, but that didn't stop me.  I am trying to learn "Hey Jude."

Winky Nik no longer has to wear her cone and is back to being our neighborhood watch.

Holy Guacamole!

For Cinco de Mayo I went to a Greek bar with my friend Rachael.  Last year we met up at an Irish Pub.  It's our tradition.  I'll have to think about where we'll go next year.

So while we didn't get into the spirit of Cinco De Mayo, everyone else around me seemed to.  So much so, that by yesterday afternoon I had a serious hankering for a taco and guac.  I was thinking about stopping at Chipotle on the way home but then remembered that I am trying to save moola.  I also remembered that in my freezer I had...

Fishless fish! 

All thanks to my coupon-clipping last week.  So I picked up some wine and tortillas and skedaddled home to attempt cooking fishless fish tacos with guacamole.  And do you know what?

They didn't turn out half bad!  Bobaloo even said that he enjoyed them.  So, I consider my twice-a-year-cooking-adventure a success.

¡Buen Trabajo Jillito!

Granny Jill

Yesterday I got really, really excited about my newest purchase.

Today I had to get some work done.

After work I am going here:

instead of here:

Who am I?
What is happening to me?

*Don't worry.  I fully intend to get into childish shenanigans this weekend.
