Weekend Wind-Down #16

BACKYARD 9001

BACKYARD 8999

Check out these giant TOADSTOOLS that sprang up in our backyard last weekend. The tops were at least 6 to 7 inches wide. A couple of them are still standing, but some have been knocked down by squirrels and birds, and some look like they've just shrunk up from the heat. We didn't spot any gnomes, fairies, or smurfs though...

Since we didn't get to do a Wind-Down last weekend, this weekend's will encompass the past two weeks, I guess. We did finally manage to answer all the questions in Weekend Wind-Down #15, though. I don't think any of us liked seeing a half-assed Wind-Down survey, and actually, it was Missy's parents that got the ball re-rolling on that one. And now, let's get the ball rolling on this one:

FAVORITE MOMENT FROM THE PAST TWO WEEKS?
Missy - Yesterday, working on my new project.
Raoul - The moment we left the Gift Mart, haha.

WORST MOMENT FROM THE PAST TWO WEEKS?
Missy - Giving up a weekend to work.
Raoul - Walking the show endlessly...done hurt my foots!

WORD OR PHRASE FROM THE PAST TWO WEEKS?
Missy - "BAM!"
Raoul - "BAM!"

FAVORITE MEAL FROM THE PAST TWO WEEKS?
Missy - What I had at the Grit last Friday night - mashed potatoes and mac & cheese.
