And if you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell you...APRIL FOOL'S!!!!
Oh, how I wish it were all true (except for the non-functioning camera part). It would certainly be more entertaining and exciting than the reality of doctor appointments, traffic jams, and the ordinary day-to-day dealings. Some productive things did happen this week, though, including:
- Daughter M. bought a car, which I was able to facilitate. Ever since then, I've had the Mercury Blues floating through my head. "I'm gonna buy me a Mercury and cruise it up and down the road."
- I made some truly decent meals, including last night's pan-fried fish fillets with homegrown parsnip fries. Around here, you can leave your parsnips, a root vegetable, in the ground over the winter. Dad dug his out of the garden recently. Slice, toss with olive oil, salt & pepper and bake in a hot oven until they start to brown. Mm, what a delicious spring treat!
- Finished the Iron Work QAL blocks. Ready for the next step!
- Cut out my Hands2Help charity quilt and started sewing strips together. I am making a nine-patch lattice quilt.
Gotta get ready to take supper over to Dad's. Tonight it's sloppy joes, or whatever you call them in your neighborhood. Spanish hamburgers? Loose meat sandwiches?
I love this new song from The Shins, but I find myself wishing it were three times as long as it is. Sorry about the ad first. It's worth the wait!
