Most Excellent...

Breakfast was a beautiful thing. Coconut pancakes with ginger syrup were absolutely scrumptious. I combated what germs I might have picked up from my fellow travelers with fresh squeezed juice from the oranges and the grapefruits in the yard. A delicious way to start the day.

I sat down and read today for a few hours. It was delightful! I can't remember the last time that I was afforded the luxury of reading something just for myself that didn't have any purpose but to entertain and inspire me. I do a fair good amount of reading throughout the week, but admittedly it's usually rather sterile or task oriented.

After a few errands, we embarked upon a successful reconnaissance mission.

One of the components to our workshop is treasure hunting. So we scouted several locations we felt would best yield results and had a lot of fun in the process.

One of the locations had a built-in restaurant. The brisket was mouthwateringly delicious. I made a mental note of this. I am such a slave to a good pulled pork or slow-cooked meal.

Our mission delivered many treasures, both beautiful and terrible. I particularly liked all the brightly colored and often whimsical in construction Mexican ceramics. We did find some really terrifying "furniture" that will probably haunt my nightmares.

I also learned today that red and green buffalo with wings and bright blue eyes cry silver tears.
