Thursday! Sunny and bright. David Payne is still going on and on about that cold front that was coming in last night. It’s 76 degrees. I am feeling pink today. Going to take advantage of this nice weather to go on a run today. I tried yesterday, but that dang bird!
I went to PetSmart and spoke with the vet. About food, treats, toys, getting a friend. So I buy the Millet, some toys with strings, and a food processor as three times a week she needs finely chopped mix of fruit and veg. I don’t know what millet is. But I think it’s like catnip for birds. I took a video of her eating it and she looked like a crackhead! And then proceeded to tweet loudly at me for an hour. I did walk to the vet and to some shops so I guess that’s exercise. Still looking for some jumpers/sweaters. I am so picky but I did get lucky and found 2 puffer vests for running and 2 comfy sweaters. I tried on a turtleneck and almost choked to death. Okay maybe that’s an exaggeration, but the lady had to come to check on me.
I did manage to make a batch of Butternut Squash Sweet Potato and Apple Soup with my new Immersion Blender. So when OU Boy got home we went and got more squash and apples. Then decided to go to the Irish Pub near us.
They are an authentic Irish Pub and make the simplest food taste amazing. The Lamb Stew is served with chunks of Irish Soda Bread and Brown Bread to sop up all of that delicious gravy. OU Boy had the Galway Fish and Chips and we split a Guinness. The lady on the harp was very talented and we went home stuffed. I don’t know why I was looking so grim here. Probably watching the soccer game on the television. We love to try local places and this is one of our favorites.
This weekend should be interesting. My sisters in Denver, South Dakota and North Dakota are about to be knee-deep in the white stuff. Those poor girls in the Dakotas haven’t even had a summer yet!
Enjoy your Thursday! There’s a book giveaway on my book blog. What kind of food should we try next? I’ve never tried Thai!?
