Wow is it hot outside, or what? The heat advisories are now in effect. I just hope that people pay attention to them. Look what is happening in California. Very sad. I'm thinking my elderly neighbor may need a friendly hello, and perhaps a lending hand with store errands. I'll see if I get up the guts to do it. She is a little weird. If I don't see her daughter's car today then I will definetly go over this afternoon.
We went to the beach on Saturday. We were originally going to a hot air balloon festival, but just didn't feel like the long drive with the directions in hand. We wanted to go some place familiar, and just veg out. I think it was the first time that we ever went by ourselves. The traffic was horrible, but we talked the whole way there. We actually learned some new things about eachother. Isn't that funny? I've heard you can learn something new every day about your spouse... now I know it is true.
We first stopped in town to our favorite deli, and had sandwiches in a basket. This deli also makes the best potato salad ever! I call it potato salad ice cream. Pete also got me to try rice pudding for the first time in my life and LOVED it~ I was hogging up all of my his. Wow was it yummy. He said that it usually isn't that good... so don't expect it like that every where. Can I say again rice pudding is YUMMY! I use to think it looked like ... well use your imagination. Looks can be deceiving!
We then proceeded to the beach with our cooler full of bottled water, a towel, a blanket, beach necessities, and an umbrella. Umbrellas, and a high SPF spray are a must have with my fair skin. We had fun talking the whole day long. Pete got me to go in the water, which normally I wouldn't do except to look for shells. I'm more of a pool swimmer. The water has cleaned up a lot at the Jersey Shore, and was very blue and inviting.
We stayed around to collect shells, and watch the surfers. It was a very relaxing day. Usually I bring a book, yarn, and my camera. This time I didn't because we didn't have extra hands to carry the overload. I think I had more fun with just the two of us. It felt like we were dating. We left the beach around 6:30, and after cleaning ourselves up we went for dinner in town. A great ending to a perfect day. Although I would have liked more of that rice pudding! LOL
I am currently crocheting some cozies for my daughter's Nintendo ds, as well as some tiny doilies. Don't ask about pictures anymore. When you see them, you'll know I've cooperated with the blog laws of show & tell. Till next time... hugs to all that have been kind to me.
