Spring is barely here, but the gnats have settled in to our house in full force. I don’t remember having the gnat problem five years ago, that we have now. But none-the-less we have it.
It’s a very restless time of the year for those of us who love to work in our yards.
I’ve lived here all of my life, but learned something new about the area Monday.
When I was growing up, we loved to roller skate. We skated in the drive-way, on the street and occasionally visited skating rinks.
I’m so glad I didn’t take my winter coats to the dry cleaner last week like I meant to. Sunday after lunch, Marshall brought the girls over to spend the day with us. We played outside all afternoon– on the tire swing, slide, patio, etc. They played basketball with Joel and frisbee. We were barefoot with short sleeves all afternoon.
Joel and I spent the weekend in Atlanta (Buckhead) for our 15th wedding anniversary. Although Joel and his friends go to Atlanta often for the SEC basketball tournament, I had never spent any time there, except for the airport.
Joel and I have gotten hooked on HBO’s new series “True Detective” starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. So we were really excited when Ellard native Johnny McPhail said he would be in the last two episodes.
Joel and I made a home-made pizza Friday night and it was really good. I had planned to make the pizza that Susanne Oakley gave recently in the Look Who’s Cookin’ column, but realized I had goat cheese on hand. Her recipe uses Roma tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
We spent a couple of days last week in Jackson for Mississippi Press Association’s annual Mid-Winter Convention.
