As typical in Indiana the weather was unpredictable and went from cold to hot overnight. We’ve spent a lot of time outdoors and documenting our journeys with photography. Sadly the Blog has once again suffered.
I decided to write a catch-up post to get a little activity back on the page.
On May 1st a group from work stopped by the opening day of Black Eye Take Out. Started by the folks from the General American Donut Company, Black eye focuses on Ramen and Banh Mi. They had a nice turnout for the event and I really enjoyed the Meatball sandwich I ordered.
Found this amazing safe in the basement of a downtown liquor store on May 3rd while buying a gift for a departing co-worker.
May 9th I was fortunate to attend a lunch with the 4 mayors of Hamilton County. It was a really nice event and a great opportunity to hear how each of these leaders are planning for the future of their cities.
I met Pirate Cat for the first time on May 10th!
While out Geocaching with the boy on Mat 12th we learned that the courthouse in Bloomington has a FISH as part of it’s rooftop weathervane.
And finally on the following day I found this hidden gem along the White River in Carmel.
It’s been a busy month and I’m looking forward to getting out there today and taking advantage of it all over again.
If you know me you know I have a lot of hobbies. Some would say I have too many…
This past weekend I took the boy to Ohio and introduced him to Briarwood Sporting Club in Bellefontaine and a really amazing Loose Meat sandwich at the original Maid Rite sandwich shop in Greenville.
Briarwood is located on almost 500 acres of immaculately cared for property and offers 16 lakes with 11 different fish species as well as hunting opportunities in the fall. I was the lucky winner of a discounted 1-year membership at a Ducks Unlimited auction last fall. It’s not a cheap membership but after spending some time there I think it’s going to be a place we escape to many times a year.
Greenville Ohio is the home of Kitchen Aid and it has an amazing store that carries just about every make, model, and color the company currently makes in its factory down the road. It also has a little museum in the basement that helps tell the history of the infamous mixer the company is known for. I always have to stop in and usually end up bringing a new product or accessory home. This time around I picked up some replacement parts for my stand mixer as well as a cold-brew coffee maker (future review in the works).
The Maid-Rite restaurant is about as old school as it gets. Loose Meat sandwiches, chips, and drinks are the only things on the menu. Somewhere in its history people started sticking gum on the building and after all these years it’s practically covered in it. A little gross but it’s a tradition evidently.
Although the weather wasn’t the most cooperative we really enjoyed our day-trip to Ohio and are looking forward to the next one!
