Of Storms and Saints

It's been a very tumultuous week in our area weather-wise, for the past few days.
Lots of thunderstorms and now so much rain....
Last night the clouds were amazing!

And the plants are growing well, almost as fast as the weeds!

Today we headed down to DC to visit the National Shrine to St John Paul II, and make a pilgrimage.
It was also the feast of St Brendan, so it was even more special for Brendan!
I wasn't allowed to take any pictures at the shrine, but we went up the road to the Basilica and I couldn't resist taking some there.

February is Almost Gone...

And the weather is pulling us outside!

We were downtown today and I couldn't resist a couple of pictures.

The Lighthouse, of course, because a beautiful day down there is perfection, and the Keepers House, which looked so nice in the bright sunshine.

I am looking forward to walks to town again!

Harford County Eats- Georgia's Take Out

Tim and I have decided to start trying out new places to eat around Harford County.
We really pretty much go to all the same places whenever we eat out, and we thought it would be fun to start exploring places that we have never tried before.
I was hoping to find an alphabetical list somewhere, but I can't find one online.
We have tried almost every eatery in Havre de Grace, so we stepped over to Aberdeen to a little shop parked next to a surgical center. I had heard about this place from my friend, Celeste, but we hadn't tried it yet.
Holy Cow.
The place has zero atmosphere, and some truly amazing food.

Georgia makes her own soups, every day, from scratch.
The gentleman at the counter, her husband I imagine, offered me samples of today's special soups. A black bean and pasta, Lasagne, and Sweet Potato and Corn.

The Sweet Potato soup was so good!! I bought a bowl to bring home.
The menu is huge, but most of it is just American. Burgers, chicken fingers, fries, wraps and salads.
Down in one corner is a section offering authentic Greek food.
The Lamb Gyro. Oh Yes. 100% lamb slices, with all the fresh fixings that you find on a regular Gyro.
It was so good!!
We are glad that we started with Georgia's.
She's a little Greek treasure.
