Did you know?

Did you know that Krispy Kreme is open at 10:30pm? I didn’t know either until I noticed the flashing “Hot Now” sign. Sooo… I was bad and stopped for a couple to bring home. It was so hard to choose. So, I picked out a dozen of glazed, several chocolate covered creme filled, key lime pie filled and the flavor of the week was a strawberry pie filled. Ok.. I didn’t eat all of them, and the glazed went in to work with J this morning (after I had another one of course).

Boy it’s chilly here today. Quite a change from all the 90 degree days and the nights only going down into the 70s. This morning it feels like fall, and the therometer says its 59 and tonight its supposed to go down to 48! I’m good as long as it doesn’t get into the 30’s, or we’ll be trying to figure out a way to cover up the garden.

Ok.. enough typing for now. Things to do… but I’ll be back later. 🙂

Wow… so pink that it just doesn’t look real at all! The odd thing was that this morning it was closed, then by lunch time it was full open. I didn’t realize that they close up every evening… I guess that’s to keep the frogs out at night!
