Heidi's birthday

After the art festival, we celebrated (e:heidi)'s birthday belatedly and a visit by her friends at our house.

It ended up being a pretty good night. I ate too much bean dip. (e:paul) and I put some whipped cream and blueberries and shortbread cookies - it was delicious.

Co-op sells beer

The coop sells beer now. You think it would be bougerificly expensive but it wsa $8.99 for a 6 pack of Southern Tier and $16.99 for a 12 pack, which is in line (or maybe cheaper) than Elmwood Market. If you ask me though, a keg of Flower Power would probably come at a bulk rate and be the most cost effective option for our household.

Allentown Art Festival


Maybe I would like it I'd it if I were a middle aged suburban woman. A lot of the stuff is the trinkets about wine and their dogs I feel like old people just fill their houses with.

It wasn't too hot though, and I got to walk around with (e:Paul). The people watching was interesting too - it's the intersection of a lot of different groups of people in one place.

Big Black Rock Dock


At work today, I had to go out in a boat with some of my coworkers and inspect the Black Rock Canal park dock. It's so decayed - you can poke through the webs and flanges of the steel beams with your finger. I'd almost be scared to go underneath with the boat but it's stood for this long. Good thing it is closed.

Tricolor Pulao

We didn't have the right ingredients to make a curry with paneer, so instead (e:terry) and I made a Tricolor Pulao. It was super simple - just cook some vegetables with cumin, chili powder and some other spices, and then add the rice to cook with the vegetables. It turned out okay, but adding habanero salsa added enough spice.

Shaggy at the Square


Yesterday (e:Terry), (e:Paul) and I went down after the pouring stopped to go to the first square of the year. Shaggy was playing - not only was he really bad (half the songs were him talking over other top 40 songs), he thought he was in Albany. The music might have been better after but we left to make dinner.

Bierklub

Another month, another bierklub. This month had a bunch of pale ales, and a few IPAs. The weirdest was probably a pineapple beer - it was so sweet and light it might as well have been a wine cooler. After, we got back and played bocce (better than board games to me).

Daniel's birthday

Last night we headed over to my parents' for Daniel's 18th birthday. It was actually on June 1st, but they were in NYC for the Colbert Report and Daily Show that weekend.

My mom made kebobs, quinoa and fruit salad, stuffed shells, and then we had three different desserts. I tried to make goat cheese brownies, but the goat cheese I bought had thyme in it. Instead, I just made regular ones.

The grass I planted last year is sort of alive!

Cake - I wish I recorded it because birthday cake and candles makes Midnight bark along to "happy birthday"

Basra the battering ram

Basra is a lot smarter than you'd think. I came home to find that he has moved the canoe right up against the wood barrier and started banging it open. Soon enough he'll be able to climb out if we don't reinforce it - he can't be tamed.

image
He's also a huge bastard. He ripped open this bag of wood chips and spread it all over the yard.

Burrito dinner

Last night, (e:terry) and I made burritos again, and had dinner with (e:heidi), (e:dianne) and (e:yesthatcasey). They turned out even better than last time I think - I really need to switch my protein source to more beans.

In the morning, Terry showed me how to make his cheesy eggs.
