an unseasonably balmy day lead us to the creek for a bit of rock throwing
bare feet in January
where is winter?
dog got chicken
I felt a surprising lack of emotion regarding dog-chicken incident
a very satisfying bout of organizing, shifting and culling of things....
a certain little someone seems to have decided to stop napping
(she's not quite two, you know)
three nights of good meals~
chana saag curry,
noodles with chickpeas, tomatoes, kale and parmesan
'balanced' out by finishing (what surely MUST be) the last of the holiday sweets
happy about that
but at the same time already planning on making a batch of sugar cookies for Claire's upcoming birthday
predictably, NOT because she likes sugar cookies all that much
but because I really like them and because I won't be quite so driven to share this batch with the mailman, trash collectors, lovely neighbors, family and friends.....
(I realize that probably made me sound like an ass- really, I'm not...and truly I will share *some* of my cookies)
bought a new toaster oven
because I started a fire in one a year ago and replaced it (much to Mike's dismay, since we don't use a microwave and the toaster oven was the only good way to reheat many things) with a 2 slice toaster that (probably much to Mike's delight) broke this weekend.
he'll be so happy to see the not toaster on the counter when he comes home tomorrow morning
is it really almost Monday? already?
