Training with Kas…continued

Kasia and I were at the bay this morning, since we both enjoyed the break in the weather that started with yesterday’s rain.

You can see the marked difference in the sky from yesterday. The blue over the bay was back and a great breeze was riding side-car. We walked for a nice clip along the bay and then made our way back home.

The flip side of this is it is still vacation time for a lot of folks, and I guess the amount of umbrellas will increase as we get closer to the weekend. It’s ok, though. Kasia and I are used to it and will adapt when we see a lot of folks. Hopefully we will keep getting out early enough to enjoy some solitude on our mother/daughter/ trainer walks. I know she enjoys them. As for me, the exercise is good, but more importantly, I savor every second I have with my girl. I know her sister, Zush, would want me to.

Knock, Knock…anyone home?

This morning’s walk took a little bit of a different turn.

The girls didn’t want to go to the beach today. I couldn’t say I blame them, as it was a little nippy this morning.However,just because frost is on the pumpkin doesn’t mean there is any flames out in my girl’s hearts.They wanted to see Kale, Zush’s boyfriend and Kasia’s “wanna be” boyfriend.You could imagine the chagrin when we walked over to Kale’s house and saw he was in the front window, looking rather mournfully out at the girls.We talked to him and promised we’d come back and see him.

Zosia seemed no worse for wear, and was enjoying her walk regardless.

Kasia had other thoughts on her mind.She wanted to get back in our house and plan an escape plan to get Kale out:after all, that’s what little devils do, right?

A Chicken Maiden Voyage

I used to bake chicken once in a while, especially when I was single.

I can honestly say I have not made one at home in almost 13 1/2 years. Really. It’s been that long because when rotisserie is reasonable in the supermarket, well, I factor in what it would cost to make it at home and usually get the one from the market.

Our local Acme had oven stuffer roasters on sale so I thought, why not.It’s been a while and I would make it as it gets cooler.Well, although it was fifty degrees today, at twilight…

…you could see the front moving in.

Fortunately thanks to my interest in following the weather, plus all the surgical scars I have that react to barometric pressure changes, I felt the oven stuffer’s number was up back around 2PM.

Zush and I walked the neighborhood while Jim took Kasia to a state park beach to run.Hopefully Daddy and daughter will be home for dinner.
