Hi Everyone, T Stands for Tuesday where we share a drink in our post, and visit with friends. Link in my sidebar hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth.
This was the first weekend in a long time where Friday-Saturday-Sunday were all perfect sunny days to be on the lake. Lots of activities were scheduled on Lake in the Ozarks as well-speed boat races (that were televised nationwide) Harley motorcycle event, Jacobs cave-near us down the road-swap meet with over 900 venders-and the list goes on. Lots of restaurants, bars etc opened up on the lake this weekend as well.
This long weekend we got to see many many boats go flying by as the boat races were down a bit to the right of us-and other events going on to the left of us. This weekend was much busier then Memorial weekend as the temperatures were perfect. Of course we stay off the lake and off the roads during busy times like this. I call it entertainment looking out our wall of windows or sitting on the deck.
We have been enjoying breakfast on the deck early in the morning. Here is my gluten free oatmeal with dried blueberries, blueberry blossom honey and a little cashew milk, along with my decaf coffee & cream (my new spluge these days is cream in my coffee-smiles)
and we had diamonds on the lake (per Eileen-- I always think of her now when I see this view of the sun on the water)
One huge improvement over the weekend, was to our right there is a cove where boats had come flying out of there-the lake home owners got approval for those no wake buoys to put up-before, in the cove, and going out of the cove-which has really helped to slow things down on that side. Our buoy is helping a bit-although many boaters ignore and still go flying by right behind our dock-ignoring our no wake buoy.
I grabbed the camera and took photos of different boats over the weekend-I missed allot of the speed boats though.
These next photos I took of the speed boat race on the tv Allot of activities for the participants and spectators happened all three days do to this race
We have discovered we have more than one species of heron here on the lake-we saw this larger one Saturday afternoon-fishing in all the caos haha
and Saturday was our 39th wedding anniversary
I brought out the good china, handmade pottery wine goblets, and made Larry's favorite bbq baby back ribs. I sauteed red sweet peppers and fresh portobello mushrooms in avocado oil and then splashed with pomegrante balsamic vinegar. Made us fresh salads with creamy raspberry poppy seed dressing, and steamed yellow wax beans.
For dessert later I scooped out dishes of my churned keto vanilla ice cream-this batch turned out really creamy-sorry forgot photos.
Saturday morning I started on the 4th kitchen towel-I am weaving each of the 6 towels a little different. This one has that darker blue for the two borders on each end of the towel-and the body will be the lighter blue. (the brown showing on the bottom is the border for towel 3
Thanks for sticking with me on this long post. Happy T and new week
