Starbucks woos me yet again...

So it's been awhile. I know. What can I say? Things come up... Things come up that I don't always want to blog about. Things that maybe I wish had never happened, and would love to forget sooner than later. But here I am again to bore you with the minute details of my extraordinary existence.

This past weekend was a good one, starting with the 70 degree weather we had (here's to hoping the snow has made a retreat until the latter part of this year).

Then there were the free Starbucks cake pops. One each day for the three days they were giving them away. I never let an opportunity go by to get free crap!

arrrgh! Yes I enjoyed them immensely. I actually have to reccomend the Rocky Road cake pop - it's deeeelicious!

Mister and I stopped to check out a park that we had passed by several times. There was a semi-flat basketball floating around one of the courts, so we played a horrible game of horse (in my Emus no less).  We had so much fun, we ran to Walmart that night to buy a fully inflated basketball and returned the next day to play again! Hopefully this will be a new weekend activity...

While we were at the park, this little gal was hanging around munching on some grass and checking us out. As soon as I lifted the camera to take a picture of her, she was off like a bat out of hell.... I think the deer out here get very nervous the second you start to look at them out of anything that slightly resembles a scope...rightfully so.

Speaking of the deer in our area - ummmmm, they are freaking thick. Like, I see herds of them all along the roads, in yards, out in the woods... Which is as cool as can be for a California girl like me. But at the same time...that means that they are starting to get hit on the roads again. Which just tears me up inside. I know, I know. I'm a freaking bleeding heart hippie - what can I say?

We also had a little visitor this weekend that we showed around Frankfort... Cassie Bug, Flat Stanley will be on his way home to you shortly!

til next time....

  1. Welcome back! Glad to hear the cake pops are good as I've seem them at our local shop, but was hesitant to try them. I've sampled some of the new mini- desserts and they were pretty good; sometimes I just want a bite sized treat.

    How cool that you see wildlife all around you; that's one thng I would enjoy about living in a less urban setting. I'm glad to hear things are better for you. We can't really control how others beehave, but we can control how we react to them, advice I would def. benefit from myself, LOL


Your comments simply make my day!
Thanks so much for stopping by - hope to see you again!
