Snapshot from Along the Broken Road: 2015 - Week 20

Checking in for the week of May 17 through May 23.

Murder on Embassy Row (Margaret Truman)- Almost done and I cannot figure out who I think did it, much less why! (I secretly love when I can't figure it out. It provides extra fuel to keep reading.)

It's corn on the cob season in Florida! We had our first batch of the season with burgers on the grill. T also did up some pork chops (bone-in for him, boneless for me, as always) with green beans and garlic Parmesan orzo. One of of favorite dishes: linguine with clam sauce. Barbecue chicken with au gratin potatoes and some zucchini. Tortellini florentine soup. Meatball subs (with melty gooey Provolone cheese, please!). And bay scallops and spinach over angel hair with a Parmesan cream and cracked pepper sauce. What I'm saying is we ate like *kings* this week.

I bought some new vitamins because my current bottle is nearly empty. They're something new that Target is carrying called OLLY. We'll see how I feel about those after I finish the ones I already have open. And no, I'm still not doing an sponsored posts. This is not that kind of blog. There's no one compensating me for my opinion or anything like that. (Ha. As if.) I also managed to get G's bridal shower gift sent off to California in time for this weekend and made myself get all teary-eyes writing out the card, because I'm a sap.

Meadow Showers (YC) - I'm going to be sad when this one's gone.
Coastal Waters (YC) - I am just all about the fresh, relaxing scents this week. Clean and airy.
Spa Fresh (YC) - See what I mean?
Lavender (YC) - Ahhhhh...
Wild Sea Grass (YC) - I wanted to like this one. It smells too much like grass and perfume though Blah.


This was fun. Otherwise known as MY BACKYARD. Thanks, weather app.

Killer whale car?

I've been wanting one of these for two years!

Florida skies show off at sunset.

Sun shower!

The descriptions of the food and the pictures are both outstanding!!! My goodness, you did eat like kings and queens :) It's only midmorning where I am and you are making me really hungry ;)

I admit, I have a hard time burning candles this time of year. We are under a heat advisory, with heat indexes in the 105-110 range, so I'm not thinking about candles or fireplaces or even turning on the stove if I don't have to. And don't get me started on pointing the hot blow dryer at my hair for 10 minutes, LOL! I look forward to fall and winter every year so I can enjoy all my candles.

Um. Did you get a notice of lightning striking AFTER it occurred? Well, Weather Channel, that was a good play :)

Hooray on the Sox flag! I can't believe you didn't have one before. And when the sun is shining and it rains, my grandmother always called that "the devil beating his wife". I still say that to this day, every time it happens!

Stacy: I have to admit, we eat well. ;-) I actually do pretty well burning candles during spring and summer, since we're closed up so tight & we don't get much fresh air in the house. I like the lighter clean or fruity scents especially. I'm with you on the hair dryer though. I've been coming to work with my hair still damp because I can't stand the hot air and my hair takes FOREVER to dry, between how much of it I have & all the humidity in the air. LOL! Yes, my app told me right after it happened. Which, I guess I can't really expect them to know beforehand. I suppose their goal is to alert you of lightning strikes in the area & encourage you to move to safety. Still though! As for the flag, I couldn't find any I liked! There were a few here & there online in past seasons, but I must have thought of it too late because the ones I liked were always sold out. This year, I started looking right after football season ended. ;-) I have never heard that turn of phrase about sun showers before! That is so funny! I have a bunch of old sayings my Gram and Gramp used the say that I've continued to use myself too. =)
