Summer Fun

Been spending time dealing with mundane real life nonsense, including a leak in the bathroom ceiling. I did see "Jurassic World." It's a lot of fun, as is "Spy." I highly recommend both.

Here are the latest fun links I've found.

Mid June Linkups

Hello, blog. It's been a while. As usual. Mostly, because my life is boring. ;)

So, some links.

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

There are holidays and there are HOLIDAYS! And National Chocolate Ice Cream Day might be the best of them all! I celebrated by making a yummy chocolate malted, using Haagen Dazs chocolate ice cream.

Playing Pieces

I was talking to someone about games and mentioned my old Monopoly game has wooden playing pieces, not the metal ones. She, being much younger than me, had never heard of such a thing. I love that old game. I loved playing Monopoly when I was growing up and I always preferred playing the tall, ivory colored piece. I told my acquaintance I would take a photo of the old playing pieces to show her, then figured, why not share them here, too, partly because they're cool and I wonder if anyone else knows or remembers them and partly because I haven't posted here in a while. So, here they are in all their glory.

Chocolate Dreams

So these Lindt Lindor Dark Chocolate Truffles came into my life and it was love at first bite. They do seem to have a teensy bit of an aftertaste, but well worth it because the actual taste is amazing, a perfect blending of dark chocolate shell and creamy chocolate filling. I tried them refrigerated, too, which was interesting. I prefer my chocolate chilled, but the cream really should be unrefrigerated for the full effect.

I really can't believe I've never had these before. I have had chocolate truffles, of course, but not from Lindt. This won't be the last time, for sure.

Orange and Blue

It was a great day at the ballpark, and the Mets have their team colors for sprinkles at the Mr. Softee concession.

It was really hot, and the ice cream melted a lot faster than I would've liked, dripping everywhere. But on a hot day, it was just the cold treat I needed.

And the Mets won!

It's World Turtle Day! May 23rd is World Turtle Day. No, not for the singing Turtles, but the four-footed, tailed kind that wear a big shell.

So, if you see a turtle today, wish him or her a great day!
