I have found every reason in the world to take a ton of pictures since Chuck gave me the Nikon I’ve been coveting for the better part of three years. The camera sits on the dining room table most of the day in preparation for anything I need to capture.
I find interest in almost anything. Pretty green moss? Picture worthy! Another picture of my cat? Absolutely! Pancakes? YES, YES, YES!
Lucky for you, I have a blog on which to post them.
Moss is exciting. I found this at my father-in-law’s house.
We started back to school yesterday, so Salem returned to his favorite lounging spot on top of Jeremy’s notebook paper.
To celebrate the start of our second semester of homeschooling, I made pancakes for dinner last night, threw in some pieces of banana and drizzled the plate with melted natural peanut butter and local honey. Oh yeah.
But wait, there’s more! I uploaded 78 more photos last night of little green army men and eyeballs. That should keep you waiting on pins and needles.
I probably could’ve brushed my hair for this.
Anyway, it was great having my sister and her family in town for Christmas. This year was a do-over from 2009 when everyone was scheduled to come to Texas. A few wrenches were thrown into the plan but they high-tailed it to Tennessee this year so I could host the holiday. I loved having everyone in our house. It was full and busy, but that’s exactly what I hoped for. Cooking for 11 was a pleasure.
As you’ve already seen in previous posts, the four boys had a ball together with only minimal fighting, which I see as a major success. They dearly love each other, despite the fact that they may only see one another twice a year.
We started school today and the boys were a bit of a challenge. When they weren’t giggling, they were complaining, and when they weren’t complaining, they were hungry. And when they weren’t hungry, one boy was making faces at the other boy and we retreated to our separate corners. Back to the grind, I guess!
This was my dinner tonight, and I’m merely posting it in hopes of getting a “gross!” reaction from my cousin, Keith. What you see before you is one whole avocado, half a tomato, about a cup of cubed mozzarella, and torn basil tossed in olive oil, sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
I ate the whole bowl in minutes and seriously considered making another.
