Baby it’s cold outside

Here in the 937 we were expecting to get 6-10 inches of snow yesterday. The good news was it wasn’t suppose to happen till after 3. So Ohiophotogrl and I went to the movies with some friends to see Marry Poppins Returns. What a fun, creative movie. Here is me with my snacks…

After the movie we checked the radar and they where just calling for rain till like 6pm. So we talked it all out and decided to stick around and watch Aquaman!

We got our tickets and found our seats. Our theater has recliner style seats that even have heat! Ohiophotogrl was really happy with that. We sat next to a young man that was really fun to sit with. After seeing the movie myself I’m not sure it was a kid friendly movie. Why do I say that….there where lots of bad words in the movie. Every time someone said one the 6 year old next to me would giggle. But excluding the curse words it was a good movie. The cinematography was really good!

Anyway it is really cold here in the 937. Gonna have to really bundle up. I let the dogs out this morning and they didn’t stay out long at all. Neither did I…

But I did build a snowman real quick!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

A birthday

My best friend Ohiophotogrl just had a birthday! We celebrated all weekend long. We saw a movie “The Fantastic Beast” and had lunch at Brio. Then we hung out a lot and had lunch the next day at a place called Penns Thia Grill.

Yummy!

Hope you all have a great thanksgiving!

Baby it’s cold…

Outside and inside….the furnace went out last Saturday and we have had the repair guys here twice. They are coming back in the morning hopefully with the right part to fix it. So Mollie and me have been sitting by the heater staying warm.

Ohiophotogrl leaves these on while she is here but when she leaves she turns them off. Space heaters left unattended can cause a fire and we don’t want that.

We did wake up to ice everywhere outside this morning

It’s pretty when your looking thru the sliding glass doors. So thankful that our power didn’t go out. What’s the weather like where you live?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

November 1st

Last night was trick or treat here I the 937. I couldn’t decide what to wear so I did costume changes.

Ok maybe more than a few but a Tator has to have options ya know! Hope you all had a safe and fun night last night. We had about 25 trick or treaters. Rain dampened the night but Ohiophotogrl has fun running around to all the neighbors to see what kind of candy they had….I’m not sure she will ever grow up. I think I’m ok with that!

Here is to a great November!

Applesauce

With fall being just a day or two away Ohiophotogrl thought we should make some homemade applesauce. It’s apple season hear in the 937 so we went out to Peifers Orchard for some local grown apples. This batch will be made with just apples, water and lemon juice to start. Then we will add some spices like cinnamon:0)

First thing we To is peel and core the apples

With the Apple peeler in the top photo it cores the Apple at the same time it’s peeling so it makes fast work out of getting the apples ready. Then we throw them in the pan with the water and lemon juice….

But a lid on it and wait for it to get all tender so we can squish it all up for our applesauce.

Then we will can it and it will look like this

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

12 miles from home

Ohiophotogrl and I went on a little excursion this morning. We went to a little town close to our home called Yellow Springs. The have a field of sunflowers every year about this time. They are beautiful. We forgot to take a photo of us but here are a few from the field…

There were lots of bees which was great to see

There were even a few that haven’t bloomed yet.

The morning was a perfect time to go! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Now that funny

So my friend Dallas sent home a calendar for me. With this being July he thought I would find this funny and I do!

The bottom of the photo says Better….or worse. Now you know how I get my eyes checked lol

World A Fair 2018

Tonight we went to the World A Fair in downtown Dayton, Ohio. We sampled many different dishes and met some really neat people.

We met Kim and Tanya from the Montgomery County downtown Library. they shared with us how much the new library has made such a big difference in the community! Thank you ladies for your time and for being ambassadors for library! Then we met Barbara for the Dayton International Peace Museum.

We have added that to the places we want to visit this summer. Thanks Barbara! When we walked in there was a parade of all the nations that were represented, the bagpipers lead the way…

Then we went in and ate our way around the world. Not really we brought a lot of stuff home to eat this weekend. But let me tell ya they had food for everyone there.if you get a chance to go it costs $8.00 at the door the entertainment is free but it does cost to eat. The World A Fair is located in the Convention Center Downtown!

We even met Uncle Sam

Looking for something fun for your room

While out on Friday night we stopped in to a store called Eclectic Essentials.

The owner and his girlfriend were really fun to talk with. We had heard at another store that they have a goat that frequents the store. We had to know. I asked and sure enough they do have a goat and his name is Mr Butters! Here is a photo of him and I.

Mr Butters has a Facebook page and everything. Look up downtownbutters. They are going to let us know when he will be in the shop again and we can’t wait to meet him!

Here is a photo of just some of the cool stuff they have in stock right now. They are located in the Oregon District at 510 E. Fifth St. Tell them Mr P sent ya!
