In between rain storms we weed and mow the lawn. We mow, it rains, it grows, we mow. Repeat.
Last week I listed down tree wood for free on Craigslist. So on Sunday they came and dragged the wood out of the pool. We kept their phone number and will call them later in the year when we cut down that leaning box elder tree. We have enough cut wood for ourselves for the next decade so it is nice to have someone else come and pick it up. We don't even need to cut it into small pieces. They used a wench to drag the huge pieces into their trailer.
Until we get a stretch of dry weather we will continue to weed and trim.
Last Saturday I attended a cheese making class with my sister and niece in Ann Arbor. OMG home made cheese is to die for and so easy and interesting to make. We made several types of mozzarella. One type involved making your mozzarella into a pouch which we then filled with grated mozzarella and heavy cream. Then we tied it off. The cream is absorbed into the cheese and OMG is it deleesh.
I bought a container of homemade cream cheese with bacon and scallions. That was unbelievably good, too.
My sister and niece took me to a bubble tea place located within the college area of A2. After taking 10 minutes for my sister to parallel park...I was thirsty or maybe sea sick from going in reverse and then forward and then reverse and then forward. Thank goodness she left that 3 foot space next to the curb for me to get out. I could have tripped over the curb if she had gotten TOO close. LOL
I had no idea what bubble tea was or is or tastes like or what is even in bubble tea. I ordered mine and they handed it to me along with a straw. I looked at the straw and thought to myself "that's a frigging big straw." I then started to walk away from the counter sipping at the same time when I nearly choked. I had no idea there were little round gummie balls in the bottom of the drink glass.
The round thingies look like salmon eggs. I think in the future I'll pass on the bubble tea but I can now cross that off my list of things to try.
We then headed to Blimpe Burger for a burger. Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives went there once for his TV show. They make a double hamburger with a fried egg on it. I passed on the egg but the burger was very very good. Onion rings....not so much.
Here is a quick photo that I snapped of my burger. It's a double on pumpernickel, with ketchup, mustard, pickle, onion, and green olives.
This photo is of the location. It's the little tiny place where the car is parked. I swear that most people's living rooms are larger than this place.
