bucket lists.

near our subdivision we have several "farms" with horses, cows and goats. it's really quite nice, and on one of my saturday morning walks i was able to get a couple shots of horses that were just let out to exercise and graze. this lovely chestnut came running towards the fence before settling in to graze. what do you think she's thinging?  she is beautiful.  learning to ride a horse is in my bucket list of thing i want to do, i've always wanted to learn to ride a horse, really ride, no holding on to the mane-no trail riding, but sitting straight up in the saddle ridding western style-but no roping cattle-i do have my limits. being one with the horse and riding like the wind, of course, i'd need a cool new pair of cowboy boots before i make this happen. :-) how you like the goats? naaaaaaaaa. what's on your bucket list?

what i like right

it's been a while since i've done one of these-i finally got onto skype so i could video chat with pj, and it's AWESOME, it's one thing to talk on the phone, but to be able to see who you are talking with is even better. having the web cam on my laptop i was able to "take" pj around the house to visit with his nana, brother and dad. look forward to doing more of this.

food truck thursday.

i've been wanting to try the food trucks in midtown for a while. it was too hot during the summer and they were further away from my office. they don't call it "hot"lanta for nothing. anyway, today was the perfect day to venture out and try some "street" food

others certainly had the same idea i did, some of the options included-sliders, bbq, tamales/tacos, cajun po boys, sausages, pizza, gelato, cupcakes (i'll try these next time, they come highly recommended), paninis, i'm sure there were more that i missed.

today i tried a chicken taco, and a spicy pork tamale at the tamale queen atl truck, yum! for dessert i stopped at the king of pops cart. my boss introduced me to these last year, and they are sooo good. they are actually called paletas; which is a south american popsicle.  they are made with fresh juice and you can see from the sign some really cool extras. i highly recommend the chocolate sea salt, and today i had the blackberry mojito-mmmmm.
a bit of exercise, some glorious weather, and really really good "junk" food. can't wait for next week.
