I have no idea how to start this post.

Don'tcha just hate it when that happens?

Headaches make my brain go on pause....

We just got home today after being away for a few days. We left Sunday afternoon to head on out to hubbies "other home." We've had a zoo trip planned for over a month now... actually, since April. It's just been so rainy, and it was cold, and then Hubs had to work. We finally made it to the Zoo last Monday.

The day was absolutely perfect. Cool, but not cold. Occasionally sprinkles, but no downpours. It was perfect weather for traipsing uphill to look at all the animal displays. I was only at that particular zoo one other time...19-gulp- years ago. It was the summer between 5th and 6th grade. The summer I turned 11. Wow!

Anyway, I totally dropped the ball on the whole camera thing. I'm so bad about forgetting to take pictures of things. I used to be quite camera happy. Baby number 2 made my hands too full I guess. Seems like ever since she came along the camera gets forgotten.

Anyway, we had a very nice day. We left and made it inside a restaurant just before predicted huge rain hit.

I wanted to eat at this place called the Green Mango, but hubs wasn't so much into going for Thai food. He did consent to go get me a takeout menu to drool over.

Ohhhh...It looked so good.

Sometimes being in places like that make me long once again for the bustle of the city.

We came home this morning. Instead of the usual highway route, once we got about a half hour away from home, I cut through the country. We stopped at a several little Mennonite markets.

The freshness of the produce made me so happy to live right where I do. I guess I'm a country girl at heart. But,...every now and again, ...the ache to escape to the anonymity of the city returns.
