We did some shopping and found a JOY decal for our Airstream. Alexis’s boyfriend is also working on a new logo with JOY on it for the blog. Can’t wait to put it all together!
We stopped by our old neighborhood. We were amazed at how much the trees have grown. We checked out our old house, where we lived from 2000 – 2013. It looks pretty much the same.
Then, we had a happy hour with some neighbors on their driveway, social distancing of course. One guy is a brewer and filled up George’s growler with one of his Belgian beers. It was fun to get together with the old crowd. When we lived here, we often met up on a driveway to chat and sip beer.
DINNER: In an unsupervised moment the other day, George stopped at our favorite bakery in town. His plan was to have a cup of coffee and a snack; he ended up with a huge, frozen pastie. So tonight, since it was cooler, we baked the pastie in the oven. It was a traditional one – with meat and diced potatoes. We added a LOT of hot sauce to it for flavor. Side was a caprese salad that I made to use the basil that our daughter had given us from her CSA. I didn’t have any mozzarella, so I substituted some goat cheese.. All good!
