I Heart Chicken

I ate a chicken heart tonight. I was told to squeeze lime juice on it, sprinkle salt on it and eat it up. It was about the size of an olive. It was crunchy then chewy. It didn’t taste like much but tasted worse the longer you chewed it. It was not particularly good.

Busy Weekend

This weekend …

We got our washer and dryer. Cylindria is a laundry fiend. She’s had withdrawal. She’ll be cheerier after she’s had her fix.

We took the boys to the vet for the first time in Denver. The vet (like nearly everything else) is very close — about 1 mile away. We suspected the dogs were sick. They’ve been at the dog park every day with tons of other dogs, have been drinking from the water dish at the dog park (which ends up being half water and half dog saliva) and have not been vaccinated with Bordetella (which protects against doggie colds). The vet said they likely don’t have it or have a very mild case. They’ve been dog park deprived all weekend, though.

We bought our window treatments. They’re these in Camel with top down and down up. We should have them in a couple of weeks. We’ll continue practicing our naked window avoidance skills until then.

We bought trash cans for the bathrooms and drawer organizers for the kitchen. EXCITING!!

I finished sealing the kitchen granite tile counter top. Phew. I also got our wood floor cleaning supplies. It looks really nice after a good washing.

Lunar Eclipse

There was a lunar eclipse last night. Denver gets 300 sunny days per year, but on the night of the Lunar Eclipse that saved Christopher Columbus, the sky is filled with clouds. Go figure. I was going to use Chris’s trick to convince the neighbor kid to give me his bike. But instead I just looked like a fool standing out there pointing and saying, “No, really. It’s red behind there. Give me your bike.”

We live in Denver now

We moved almost exactly two weeks ago. I have not updated this place nearly as much as I wanted to. So I’m filled with things to write about and nothing to show for it. If history proves correct, then I will continue to not update this place. At least not for months. Let’s hope history lies.

In the meantime, you can read some interesting things about Denver and Colorado here: and here
