Beautiful beach day!     What is the water temperature?    Warm enough to swim?

that's a bit too chilly for me to go all the way in, but I always like to stand with my feet in the water. 

Enjoy your beautiful day 🤩

SUCCESS. 
 

Yup. Been an interesting day. 
So. The newest adventure for us is. 
 

DRUM ROLL 

 

After dealing with township and county representatives, and numerous re do’s of blue prints. Today we were finally approved for our construction of a new Un attached garage. 
 

Now mind you. The DH. Thought of everything. And left no option out, you know, might be needed in the future. 
 

We live in a development on 2 1/2 acres. 
We conquered or should I say we modified the development rules after other owners who live on our street did not follow. Just had to make sure they could not come back and penalize us. 

 

Some of the  township trustees not all should have looked into there past with skeletons in their closets before they ran for public office. But we won’t go there. Let’s just say they quickly approved the revised  blue prints, I think just to get rid of me. 
 

Onto the county. To get in to zoning office I had to first meet with a sherif deputy to state my intentions, go through medical detector and X-ray screening of my purse.  I felt safe and secure there. They obviously missed my can of mace on my key ring and those scissors. Well.  I was safe. 

Then into zoning office 

That man was awesome.  Quickly printed my permit and out the door. 

 

Now to the garage. 

1120 square functional space 

concrete base. 
It is a lofted 1 1/2 levels 

1 double and single garage doors

Side people door

Back golf cart door. ( DH snuck that by me, we      do not own a golf cart ). 
But he says we can ride lawn mower and snow blower in. 
 

Work bench 

Room  for 5 of those big red tool chests 

Sink

 

Sitting area

mini fridge 

comfy chairs tables

sattelite hookup ???? 
He’ s gonna freeze his **** off in winter only portable heaters 

 

Um sounds like a man cave in the making.
 

I personally knew we needed some more storage and didn’t think our current 5 car Garage was too small. But. I guess I cannot complain. 
The DH ALWAYS lets me get what I want so it is his turn.  


Below is a picture of our wooded lot. 
Yup those trees were downed over a year ago. Now they will be moved for the new addition. 
 

Then the building will begin. 
 

We picked our start date end of August.

Addendum. 
 

Yup he deserves it I told him to consider it my 30th anniversary gift to him. 
 

Then out of the blue he goes. This year not only is it our 30th anniversary, but also I want to get you something you wants  since it is a milestone birthday for you. . So let me know so I don’t end up in the dog house ( or  garage ) for all that matters. 
 

I go I will think about it. 
So it only took 30 seconds for the text to get to his phone of what I would like. He barely was out of the room when his phone chimed.

I love radishes.     We have grown them in the past, didn't this year.   I always sliced my radishes and put in salads or would simply grab and eat.  never cooked them, will have to try that.

The first time I had them cooked, I recognized everything but them. I finally asked, and was surprised at how roasting them changed the flavor.

I missed it.  I will see if there is a replay later.  It has been awhile since I have seen a drone show like that but remember it was a big wow factor.

Isn’t NBC going to show the opening ceremonies tonight (23rd) at 7:30pm DST? If not, we missed them!

Hi, we live in Bergen County NJ .... and often eat in restaurants in Rockland County NY....   Piermont, Sparkill, etc.  

Re Bergen County:

I knew a retired NYC police officer who  became an officer in Bergen County and worked on the movie World Trade Center in 2005 and a woman who resided there and ran for Congress in 2007.

I've been following, on and off, the opening ceremony of the Olympics [boy, truly amazing, but loooong].

 

So saddened to see the Olympic stadium empty.... 

 

No viewers/spectators/public.

 

Nasty virus 😢

I wish somehow, if double vaxxed, that at least the families of the athletes could sit socially distanced.  

Yes very sad to not hear spectators cheer them on.

I don't share my husband's love of radishes.  He can eat an entire bowl as is. As many radishes as I put in a salad it's never enough for him.

Great News!

 

Most of you know that we planned to start off on our family vacation today.  We had our Skyline Chili stops mapped out and other things.  We later found our girls had a surprise for us and they hired a photographer for Lakeside family pictures!  After we got hit, it took a lot of effort to talk  two of the families to still go.  One was to leave early this morning and one this afternoon.  Yesterday evening they were making last minute preparation when……

 

We received a text from the person we were renting from.  He agreed to do a "lift and shift" 😊.  It was exciting news but also stressful.  Two families, excited to take off on vacation and was able to get work figured out now has this dropped on them.

 

We found out this morning everyone got work to let them go later.  The stress is now gone and all are happy we will have a full family vacation again… so thankful it’s working out again 💥.  The new trip date is Aug 29.  The last week Lakeside is officially open.  My brother wants me to get well so he can beat me at shuffle board!

Try radishes some time. They are really good and surprisingly, don’t taste like you’d expect. 

Interesting, I’ll have to give this a try. Do you cut them at all or roast whole?

We were supposed to go up to the Albany area on Sunday for a get together with DH’s side of the family. His sister, her husband and their 3 adult kids live there and my MIL lives in a senior apt nearby. DH’s brother & his wife/kids live in the Dallas area but are back for 2 weeks at their Vermont property. So my MIL reserved the community room & patio at her place.  Last night we find out DH’s sister, her husband and one of their daughters are sick.  The husband went to ER and was being tested (don’t know why they’re not all being tested). Have not heard from any of them ( they’re terrible communicaters), but the get together is off.  They are all fully vaxxed.
