Speaking of, see these cookies? They're sitting in a tin in my kitchen.
Yup, they're Christmas cookies from family. You are absolutely allowed to think 'gross' since they've been there for about two months now. Why on earth? Well, right before we traveled for the holidays, Rocket Man and I got rid of whatever was left in the cookie tin. We don't really eat much of them, and by we I mean me, since he eats zero. These cookies? They were the few that Rocket Man told me to keep because he was going to eat them. HA! As usual, he has eaten zero cookies. So there they sit, waiting for him to throw them out. My reason for throwing those that were left away was two-fold. For one, I doubted they would be much good once we returned, and two: Lookin' Fine in 0-9.
Speaking of, here is our dinner from a couple of nights ago:
Tilapia with some herbs and white wine, tomatoes and mushrooms. Long-grain brown and wild rice. Greek salad without the Greek olives. What is with H-E-B not having the Greek olives? Wal-Mart has them, but not H-E-B. Perhaps they should rethink their catch-phrase: Here Everything's Better.
Speaking of, things have been going much better in the house of everyone's sick (H-E-S). We were all ill up until the 18th or so, but now most of us are feeling better. Little Miss Itty Bitty has been taking really good naps the past week or two, which is very nice because then I get to sleep as well. I think it is because she is oh so close to crawling; she practices every day. Well, unless her teeth get in the way. Then she chews on whatever she can find.
Speaking of, guess which of my two 'children' I found attempting to chew on the leg of the bed yesterday? If you are thinking the dog, you would be wrong. It took her a while to figure out how to get her mouth to the leg without her big noggin getting in the way, but by golly she got it. Mmm, bed-post. Tasty indeed, but very silly looking.
Speaking of, remember that stocking I made...the one that I failed to check the tension on before completing? Here it is:
...and here is a shot that shows you a little better how very long it is:
Long and skinny. Jeepers. Silly looking indeed. At least now I know what I shall do to make a better one. Shorter, but not skinnier. I shall also move the ginger-bread girl over a tad so that her foot doesn't get stuck in the seam. Hopefully I'll be able to do that before next Christmas. We shall see, as LMIB keeps me pretty busy.
Speaking of, she's awake from her itty bitty morning nap, so I need to go and rescue her from her fishy swing. Hope everyone's having a good Friday and Happy Weekend!
