yes...i'm alive.

Well, May ended...Thank God.
Thank you for your kind words on my last post as well. It was so sweet of you to comment.

June has gone better than the last few months. P and I went to Florida. He had a conference in Tampa and I chose to go with him to hang out on the beach and relax. It was fairly glorious! I ate too much, drank a little, sunned a lot and prayed that the oil would stay away. It was nice. P got a little bit of time to himself and we managed to go to the beach together twice and out to dinner a bunch. I'll post pictures sometime soon. I went to the Tampa Zoo by myself one really hot day and hung out watching the animals. I had a great time! It was really funny though because apparently it's zebra mating season and the male zebra was ummmm let's say rambunctious. I counted 5 children who got a rapid lesson in the birds and the bees courtesy of the Africa section of the zoo. It was quite funny.

And before I make myself sound like a zebra voyeur or something... I took a book with me to the zoo and found a little shaded overhang that happened to be across from the rhino and zebra habitat. I naturally gravitate toward the four legged animals and thought it would be a great place to sit and read and sip my soda. The R-rated activity just HAPPENED to be there at the same time. I didn't sit down and watch on purpose. :-) What kind of creeper do you think I am :-).

What else has been going on....summer orientation at work commences today. It's going to be fun to see all the new first year students. They're always so bright and shiny and excited to be here. It's refreshing after the burn out of spring where all the students are just counting down the days til the summer gets here.

OH! most fun thing ever. I'm doing this community agriculture thing with 2 of the people in my office. We're splitting a full share of vegetables. I am thoroughly in love with it. Last week we got real English Shell Peas which I haven't had since the last time I was in England and Kohlrabi. Have you ever had kohlrabi?? You must try it. I love it. It's forcing me to be creative in my cooking. I made a Japanese Noodle bowl for dinner the other night with sugar snap peas...it was SO good. This week I got a bunch of beets and have to figure out what to do with them since the hubster wont eat them.

So..that's my disjointed but slightly more positive update. I'll post Florida Pics soon.

3 blessings:
Kind people
rain for my flowers
sun for my face

Too funny about the zebras. When we were in Florida in Feb TNT went with me to Animal Kingdom. I had planned to go alone while he was in meetings, but it was raining that day. I would have had more fun going by myself though. I love animals so I could have spent the whole day there just watching. But he sees one animal then it's time to move on. Boys!!!
