1. We saw the movie Midnight in Paris yesterday! We actually found a theater in NC playing it. I was tipped off by the very nice Laura at the Ronald McDonald House in Winston-Salem the other day who saw my blog post lamenting the fact that I was probably never going to find a theater to see the film in. She told me about a small independent theater called The Aperture in downtown Winston-Salem that was opening the film yesterday. So, my husband and I took the afternoon off and went to the 3:00 afternoon matinee. I would call The Aperture a boutique theater that plays unique, festival winning, independent films. It had a nice selection of beer, wine, and delicious bakery items along with some heavenly smelling popcorn. I am so happy to have found this gem of a theater. Thanks Laura! And the movie, was very entertaining.:)
2. Handyman #2 told me he just started to raise chickens. He has 12. He told us that he was forced to get 12. The powers that be require you buy chickens by the dozen to discourage haphazard chicken buying. They don’t want the “non-serious “ to buy chicks for Easter baskets and such. So anyway, he asked me if I would like some fresh eggs when they start laying! So I have that to look forward to!
3. Did you know that you can spray paint purses and shoes? This just opened up a whole new world for me! :)
5. We harvested our red skinned potatoes out of the garden. (Maybe I could add them to the Potato Salad in the photo above?) I figured they were ready to be harvested because the top plants were starting to die off. What fun. Have you ever grown potatoes before? When you did them up it’s like digging for buried treasure. We were digging and sifting for bright red jewels. Stay tuned, I’ll be posting my recipe for Smashed Red Potatoes in the next few days.
Another hot and sultry day in the sunny South! 94 degrees yesterday. About the same again today. Stay cool!
