Dash cookies!


Since the wine tasting is off for today (thanks loads txdot! Not!) I’m going to make dash cookies!

I left the cookies in the car for almost three hours…

and they slowly melted and

A couple merged together at which point I leveled out the pan.

And by the end I had some yummy cookies and a great smelling car.

Next time I won’t use a pan with an air gap.  The bottoms were a bit gooey.  We still any another couple of months of Summer here in TX so I’ll have another chance to try this.

Glorious sunrise this morning followed by more gloriousness while I was driving in (blinding golds and yellows reflecting off the clouds) and as I’m turning away from my car to walk into work I see this.  “Ooooh, that’s interesting.” and pull out my camera.  Next time I’ll get out the tripod too.  It’s difficult to get bracketed shots by hand.

Interesting things – Hoard much?

I had a day off recently so Susan and I went to see Harry Potter. After parking in the parking garage *gasp* I noticed that the car next to ours looked odd. I then saw that it was overflowing with crap.

The front seat was just as full.

Interesting things – Wandering Bee Colony

On the way to the Denton Arts and Jazz Festival I noticed a cloud of bees above the car as we pulled out of the alley.

We stopped for a bit and watched the bees fly about for a moment. It wasn’t clear if they were forming a hive anywhere near but we figured they must be.

On returning home we saw the colony in a neighbors tree.

The neighbors weren’t home but I expect the bees will move on tomorrow. If not we’ll be calling a beekeeper to find them a new place to live.
