I have never been to Lake Tahoe, but let me tell you, I’m about two seconds from doing a Google search for Lake Tahoe vacation home rentals and heading out. It’s almost Christmas, but for some reason it doesn’t really feel like it to me. It snowed here today for the first time in weeks. Our temperatures here so far have been extremely moderate. Cold, but nothing that a good sweater can’t fix. But even now, most of the snow has melted. This is how winter in the Rockies is: it will snow in the morning and by noon most of it has melted. I don’t think that we will be getting a white Christmas here this year. Without the snow, it doesn’t feel like Christmas at all. I think I need to get away from the taunting of the weather and head to some place that is always sunny. Some place where I can just relax instead of worrying about work and dishes and meals. Oh please, oh please, can’t I just find one of those Lake Tahoe vacation home rentals, pick up my husband and go away? That sounds like the most appealing option I’ve thought of yet. Lake Tahoe, I need your sun!
Archive for the ‘Food’ Category
It’s funny how many different definitions the word “mint” has. I mean, there are several. Merriam-Webster says it only has a one, really, and that is the flavoring that is often put into food (they also list the food that is called “mint”, which is something different, but it’s kind of the same).
But there is also the U.S. Mint, which creates money and has nothing to do with food. It’s the creating of something metal, I believe, but I don’t know how to really describe it. I think that the terminology of a group of things created out of metal is fairly accurate, though.
But I wasn’t thinking about things made out of metal when I came across the page for Franklin mint cars. I was just thinking about the food when I saw the page. And then I was very confused. The Franklin mint cars are not food. They are not a type of food flavored like with a plant from the Labiatae family. They are cars, cast into metal. They are pretty cool cars.
But they are not food. I just thought that I should make the distinction in case there are other people out there that were confused. Now we know.
