The other side

Spending a few days with family in a hotter part of the country, trying not to get sunburned. Our tender Seattle skin just can’t stand up to the Texas sun.
A strawberry limeade from Sonic goes down nice and cool, but my NW self feels bad about the styrofoam. 🙂

It’s funny the habits that don’t work when you go someplace different – for example, we always set the parking brake but folks here almost never use them (no hills). When we park (as at Sonic) we also turn off the car but here you start baking in about two seconds without the A/C so they let cars idle. Felt odd to sit & eat in the car with it idling.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
