It’s been one of those weeks. I woke up with two eyes that make me look like some alien creature. One is red blood shot and the other has a burst blood vessel. I have no idea how I did it… in my sleep?
I’ve noticed that some of the people I visit in Blogville have been posting about dreams, or embarrassing moments.
Dreams… I don’t really remember most of my dreams. I prefer it that way, when I do, they are, less than pleasant.
Once in awhile I do have one that I enjoy. I’m running from someone or something, and suddenly I realize… I can fly! Why run when you can fly?
Thing is, I’m terrified of heights, so, instead of really taking off up into the wild blue yonder… I float, about a foot or two off the ground. Either way it makes for an easier escape.
In the summer, the evenings are my favorite time to be outside. Depending on the area, the farmers are either cutting the alfalfa, or, my favorite, peppermint. I LOVE the smell of peppermint on a warm summer breeze.
This week has been our own little county fair. My girls have gone every night. I finally went today.
Each year as I survey the dwindling number of entries for crafts, cooking, sewing etc. I make a promise to myself to use the coming year to make a bunch of things to enter….
I made that same promise to myself today. lol
This morning I was scoping out the food vender’s so that I had an idea what I was going to buy for dinner. One place is doing Cajun/southern food. Smoked ribs, smoked chicken, brisket, pulled pork, dirty rice, beans, jambalaya, crayfish ettoufee…
I was hooked the minute I saw their menu. It’s not something we can get around here.
One of the gentlemen asked if he could help me, and I told him I was planning dinner.
He said that the hottest thing on the menu was their Cajun potatoes. I told him I like hot and spicy, to which he says, "Wanna try our hottest hot sauce?" The other guy rolled his eyes when I said, "YES!" LOL
I thought maybe he would put a drop or two on a cracker or something similar… he hands me a toothpick. He opens the bottle and dips just the tiny tip of it in the sauce and gives it to me.
I’m thinking how bad can this be? I love hot and spicy, and I’m no light weight. Well…. I started sweating almost immediately, and my mouth was burning for about a half hour.
They thought it was pretty funny, and told me one guy came and put 8 drops of it on his food. They told him there was no way he was gonna be able to eat it all. About half way through he finally admitted they were right. lol
I don’t think it’s a hot sauce so much as a chemical weapon of war! (I hope I remember where I wrote the name of that stuff down. I have a few family members…..)
There’s been a rodeo going on every night of the week. Tonight is the night they crown the Queen and Princesses.
They have all kinds of entertainment going on during the day.
As I was leaving it was a group of young men in traditional kilts, long hair, pulled back in pony tails, some with tattoos… I must say, there is something very sexy about a man in a kilt, especially when he has good legs and muscular arms….
Just an observation…
How’s your weekend going?
OH, as for the embarrassing moment. I’ll post that at a later date. lol BIG HUGS, Steph
