Bits and Pieces – August 2015

1.  We traveled to Houston a few weeks ago for a grandbaby fix and on the way I noticed these long thin rows of clouds.  It reminded me of perfectly spaced rows of corn, guess I have been spending too much time in Omaha!  I have no idea what these types of clouds are called, but I was in awe of these lines stretching as far as the eyes could see.

2. Speaking of the grandbabies, these two adorable creatures were my playmates during that trip to Houston.

3. Also speaking of grandbabies, only about 4 weeks remain until my middle daughter and her husband bless us with our third grandchild which will be their first. I am so excited to see this little one, I am convinced it is a boy but we will find out soon.

4.  Look at these fun benches my brother-in-law Steve has been working on.  Wouldn’t these be perfect in an entryway or on a front porch?

P is for Piropos

Over three years ago a group of long time friends decided to start the ABC Dinner Club which is a structured approach to discovering new restaurants and branching out from our old favorites.  We are eating our way across Kansas City one alphabet letter at a time.

Every few months we select a restaurant at which the majority of us have not eaten.  If you would have told me three and a half years ago that it would have taken this long to get to the letter “P” I would have thought you were crazy given how much we eat out, but travel, weddings, children, grandchildren and even surgeries have sometimes made it difficult for this now group of twelve to get together.

We are far from professional restaurant reviewers, just a group of friends who like to socialize over a good meal.  Given the company we are with and our propensity to eat out, we are fairly generous with our reviews but have had a few we definitely would not frequent again.  Our bottom line is “Will we go back?”
