Miscellany

It's been a while since a legitimate post, but that doesn't mean there's been a lack of post-worthy happenings. It means there've been so many I can't keep up on the recording and I crumpled in a heap under the pressure and I dragged myself to the computer to give you a glimpse before I dive back in.

There's been the project to beautify the great white expanse of wall above the couch...

Yeah, I know, there's still a lot of white wall, each frame's a little askew, and the left side's a little flat...I'll work on it.

There's been a fantastic collection of short films which reminded me to savor life's momentary but significant encounters and also made me wish I was in Paris.


There was setting this goal, trying really hard, and finally admitting I'm out of time though I got through the first six years!

There's been another installment of Bon Appetit inspiring Orrechiette Carbonara, Pan-Seared Rib-Eye with Porcini Rosemary Rub, and Beet and Goat Cheese Salad with Pistachios

My husband bought me something pretty that I'm so in awe of I have yet to touch it with the duster much less cram my unworthy clothes inside...


There's been home-made perfume...Everclear plus Lavender! to finally put to its proper use my brilliant Christmas present from Z - a vintage perfume bottle.


There have been other nice things such as the formation of a Cigar and Port Club with Melody and Everett (and anyone else who cares to drop by our porch), pigeons nesting right outside the kitchen window and a nine month wedding anniversary.

Second most of all, there's been starting a second job...back at the good old restaurant. Why? I'm still wondering that as well.

Most most most of all was the welcoming of this fantastic little boy.


Looking forward to (translate- the happy reasons I'll be gone for a while)...Ohio cousins spending Spring break with us, Nik joining us for the weekend, and a Mexican Easter and hike of Great Falls with Billi and Daniel.

It is NOT too late for your goal. I noticed that the deadline is March 30. It doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be the last time you enter. As Mr. Nike would say...just do it!

And after you finish, would you come to our house and prepare that dinner for us...we'll supply the ingredients.

And finally would you please go see that adorable Rowan baby and give him a kiss for us!

Oh yeah...I tried to rent your movie a couple of weeks ago but for some reason the Coburg Family Pizza place doesn't carry it. What's up with that?

Wow, it sounds like y'all've been busy. (is y'all've one word or two?)

I see that Z-man is figuring out his bride. What a great shopper for you. Kudos
And to Valerie: I believe it is all-y'all've
Mm

Hi, I finally figured out how to do this. Thanks for sending this picture of Sonora. She's a doll.

You haven't put your clothes in the dresser yet?!? What are you waiting for?
