Hereditary Traits

Check it out! He sticks his tongue out like I do when I'm working things out. He's making an anniversary gift for Jenn. Little coupons for her to redeem. He knew what he wanted to do, and I found him a template on-line. 
 He was impressed with the tools. Once I showed him how to use them, he ran with it. He wasn't afraid of all the pink either.
 I'm hoping Jenn cashes the coupons in all at once!
 While he was busy working away  at that, I did my Letter Love assignment. Writing for an hour kills my hand. I'm just not used to holding a pen. I am amazed that my lettering can look like something a blind folded chicken did, but then I can embellish it and it looks pretty darn good when I'm done.
In our 2nd bin from Urban Harvest, we got Corn Salad/Lamb's Lettuce. It's like spinach but doesn't have what Kerry calls "the dirt taste". I made a nice little salad with cherry tomatoes, feta, cukes, and olives. We also had rainbow chard, which I thought I had taken a photo of, but guess I didn't. I stir-fried it up in butter, and added a lot of garlic. It was so good. I really didn't expect it to be. It made enough for me and Shaun, it might have made more, but I ate it all and left a little for Shaun. He loved it too.  We are really enjoying the different fruits and veggies that come in our bin.

Things I am LOVING right now.

I have wanted an immersion blender for years, I mean a new one. I had an old Braun one, and it was pretty useless. This one is totally meant for hot foods, so it comes in so handy for all that butternut squash  soup I've been making lately. And it was almost 50% off at work!
 Michelle went to the states and came back with some treats for me! Scooby snacks!
 And dehydrated hashbrowns, don't get all "gross!" They are the kind served in probably 80% of the restaurants. Delish!
 I bought myself this little treat after using my old ones for 30 minutes. The fact the spring in them had gone made me think I was killing myself trying to use them.
 Today, some super happy artsy crafty stuff came for us, I say us because the refills are for Emily. Got  a sweet deal on them because of the lettering class I am taking. Check it out...Tim Holtz distress markers, not even available here yet! Bought a couple for my PL friends!
I am not loving....
-the indecisive weather.
-the price of gas.

A Diagnosis, at last!

This is so me! I wonder if there is a cure?
