With both Canada Day and 4th of July in the same week there was plenty of celebrating going on at the Hartman house. Though, to be fair, I did completely forget his special day and made him wait until our glorious 4-day weekend to celebrate. And by "celebrate" I mean go to Grocery Outlet for some pretty trashy treats;
Besides loading ourselves up on gloried chocolate frosting and frozen wine coolers, I finally managed to make it over to the new olive oil tasting room by the Safeway on East Ave. Just like the oil place Wilson took me to in Old Pasedena, they have tasting bottles of all of their oils and vinegars to sample. It didn't take me long to choose two oils and two vinegars to buy.
Today was the first day in a week that we've been able to open the windows in the morning because it was finally cooler outside than in. Two days ago it was still 88 degrees at 6:45 am. We even set our alarm this morning so that we could get up and take an early walk and vacuum out my car before it got too hot.
