RIP Apple Juicy

September 16, 2013

Tonight I was making pickled okra for a friend.  I forget my cutting board at the house and drove back to pick it up.  When I pulled in front of the house I saw Apple Juicy lying in the middle of the road.  This was very odd, because he usually lies on the side to sun himself.  I walked over and noticed his black and white fur was surrounded by a pool of blood. Someone had hit him.  His eyes were lifeless and mine welled up with tears.

Florida State vs. Nevada

September 14, 2013

At the game.

Today Florida State opened their home schedule against Nevada.  I brought Mason, and together we met Joe and Bennett at their house before heading down to Lot 14 for some tailgating fun.  We decided to do a New Orleans inspired menu complete with a muffaletta, Zapp’s chips, bread pudding and Pimm’s Cups.  While Mason and Bennett played football we relaxed and visited with our fellow Nole fans.

Below is the recipe for one of the easiest desserts I know:

Mason has been asking to play baseball all week.  Our lawn was severely overgrown (after growing like the weed it is) this past week.  This morning I got up at 7 o’clock to mow our field and get it into tip top baseball shape.  As soon as the mower turned off Mason bounded out of the house in his “uniform.” Stripped pajama pants, sneakers, 3-D glasses from Planes and an Atlanta Braves cap completed his look.  He was adorable and after I grabbed a glass of water we played baseball.  He was thrilled.

Today was the grand opening of Bass Pro Shops’ Tallahassee location.  As part of the grand opening festivities NASCAR driver Tony Stewart made an appearance to greet fans and sign autographs.  Mason loves NASCAR and when he heard Tony Stewart would be in town wanted to meet him.  I knew there would be a ton of people, but decided to take him to see one of his favorite drivers.

Heart blankey is Miss Julia’s most prized possession.  She carries it wherever she goes, and her presence (she refers to it as a girl) is required whenever she goes to bed or to Big Girl School.
