In our neighborhood, the ice cream truck comes by just about any day there's a sunny sky. It's only once or twice a year, though, that we flag down the driver and buy something. Yesterday was one of those days, and I got this:
It's a Limon popcicle with the flavors of lemon, lime and salt! OMG! (Oh My GOOD!) Too bad there isn't some tequila in there, too. They're made by Blue Bunny, but I haven't seen them in any of the grocery stores. I'm going to stop in at some of our local Hispanic markets to see if they have them by the box...they would surely be less expensive than buying them off the truck.
Before we bought our treats, we spent most of the day throwing stuff out to the curb for scrappers to collect. We had an older fridge that quit working over the winter and wasn't good enough to try to repair and some other odds and ends. We put a listing on craigslist and soon a man from just a few blocks away came and loaded everything into his truck and will take it to the recycling center for a little extra money. We could have done that, too, I suppose, but our main objective this particular weekend was to reclaim space in our garage. So we helped out a neighbor by giving him some cash-generating scrap for free, and he helped us out by taking it off our hands with almost no effort on our part.
While Shane was clearing out the garage, I put together a couple of big boxes of clothes and household items for the thrift store, and Kat even voluntarily gave up a box full of books and toys. All of those boxes will get dropped off this morning. All of this followed a Saturday when I was feeling a little down and lot overwhelmed about the amount of junk we have in our home, specifically our garage and and basement. It was time for a purge and I feel a lot lighter now.
Looking to the week ahead, I'll be going to Lowe's this morning right after dropping Kat at school to order the dishwasher and schedule installation, and Kat has swim lessons two nights this week. There isn't much else on the calendar this week, thank goodness. I just want to stay home, but that's not unusual for me.
I have an unremarkable meal plan for this week, but I'm going to look through some of my photos to see if there's anything interesting to eat that I haven't shared yet.
It's such an exciting life that I life. What will you be up to this week?
