One of the reasons I like spring? Being outside and gardening, one of my passions. I love to take seeds, plant them, and then 60 days later be able to eat, literally, the fruits of my labor. So far I have 10 tomato plants, eight broccoli, 6 peppers, along with, peas, bush beans, onions, garlic, and cucumbers. I'll be posting garden photos soon. Enjoy the spring weather!

Who doesn't love the Eastern Bluebird? They are full of energy and are not shy. The great thing about the Bluebird is that they're here in Oklahoma year round...Rain, heat, or snow you can see them.

Growing up I loved these animal crackers. Even now just seeing the box brings a smile to my face. Way back when you could cut the box and make the box have wheels. On one side of the box you could cut out the animals. I love the handle on the box as well.
They have changed the cookie in the last 10 years or so... They are now fluffy. I have to say I do not like what they did to the cookies. The taste is basically the same...BUT the rheology is soooooo not what it was. Rheology is a big deal! It is the way the food feels in your mouth when you are biting, chewing, and basically eating a food. By making this cracker(cookie) more fluffy it changes the rheology/ the way you experience the product. I still like the animal cracker packaging, that string that transforms it into a purse like product, and tearing open that wax paper inner wrapping. The crackers themselves, well I could just take 'em or leave them. Would I buy the again...yes...duh.

Yesterday we went on a ghost walk on the University of Oklahoma. It was really great walk. I learned a lot about the history of the university. 75 minutes of walking on a cool October evening was perfection. The best part of the evening was sitting in the spoon holder, on the north oval, and visiting with the small group we were with. If you get a chance to talk the tour you should go for it.
