Hey hey look at me. Two posts in two days. Give me some butter because I’m on a roll.
That was really cheesy, sorry…but I had to do it.
Shortly after my mom arrived yesterday morning around 11ish we headed to Tuscaloosa’s River Walk for a run.
I broke in these bad boys with a 5 miler.
Mom and I stayed together for the first 2 miles and chatted. Actually it was more like me blabbering about who even remembers now and her replying with the correct yeah, uh hum, oh really?, and so on.
I may not be as fast as I once was, but that run sure felt good. It was one of those hurt so good kind of feelings when I finished. The Garmin said I burned 925 calories. Not too sure I believe it but hey…it was a good excuse to have lunch at Jim ‘N’ Nick’s. 😉
I know I mentioned lunch at Five yesterday but after Mom suggested Jim ‘N’ Nick’s I just couldn’t say no to the cheddar biscuit-muffins. Ohmigah, and don’t even get me started on their smoked chicken. Ok ok moving on.
Look at those babies.
Now for the
star of the show main course. The cool thing about Jim ‘N’ Nick’s is there isn’t one freezer in the whole restaurant. Everything is fresh and scratch made. How neat?
As we were eating I spotted my neighbor. Remember him?
He’s quite the cutie and hopefully he’ll still be around by the time I move in across the street. If he’s smart he’ll stay because I’ll feed the little guy! Speaking of feeding him…Mom was curious as to what groundhogs ate so she googled it and this is what we found:
Answer:I am a groundhog owner. And my baby groundhog either eats bananas,Â apples, any fruit really. Any type of rabbit food, leaves, lettuce, bark, and roots. But mostly fruit.Â
their diet includes: leaves, bark, roots, seeds, saplings, dandelions, cresses, violets, plantains, raspberries,blueberries, apples, cherries, pears,watermelon, beechnuts, hay, clover, alfalfa, corn, beans, grass, snails and insects.
Sounds like a diet I would approve! Minus the snails, insects, and bark…
The rest of our day included: taking measurements of the townhouse, furniture browsing, Target, Starbuck’s, sushi dinner, and some R&R.
And that concluded our day. Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday so far. I have a Tacky Christmas party to attend later this evening.
It’s gonna be a good ooone! 😉
