So much

I have so much to share with you today, so I’ll get down to it.

I finished the pink baby blanket for Stitches from the Heart last night while watching the All Star game with my love. I printed out quick directions for a baby hat and booties, which I’m thinking of making tonight to donate all the items together this weekend. Here’s the blanket!

 Pink camo for baby! I’m thrilled to have finished this one.  The blue one is slightly bigger, and since it’s so easy to carry around, I think I’ll bring that one to WI in August to finish. I’ll post the hat and booties when I finish.

Speaking of finishing. I finished Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee. I started it yesterday on the bus and finished it today. It’s a quick read, one you don’t want to put down.  It’s no wonder it won the Nobel Prize.  It’s a gripping look at the complexities of race relations in post-apartheid South Africa, as well as stunning literary critiques and views of nature.  I feel bad for making light of this book when I previously wrote about my intention to read it.

As for what to read now, I think I’ll try Agatha Christie.  I’m ashamed to say I’ve never read any of her books. Hubby was bowled over that such an avid reader would have missed out, so he brought me home And Then There Were None (formerly Ten Little Indians, not PC enough?) because they were giving it away with a video game at his work.  It sounds good and looks like a quick read- probably get it mostly done on the bus tomorrow.

Yes, this post will have it all- dinners and lunches, too!

Yesterday’s bento was a tofurkey and cheese sandwich on a multi-grain english muffin (at work I popped it in the toaster over and made a heavenly tofurkey melt), crackers, raspberries, and a trailmix/chips ahoy candy mix.

Today’s linch was tofurkey and cheese slices wrapped around half an avocado, crackers, humongous strawberries, and trail mix and chips ahoy.

Dinner last night was veggie burgers ( I topped mine with cheese, mayo, ketchup, relish, and avocado) and roasted potatoes (drizzle in oil, add salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary, cover with foil and bake on 375 for 32 minutes- shaking the pan a few times during roasting). My taters are smiling at YOU!

Tonight I’m trying something new, that I mish-mashed from a different recipe and some husbandly input. And we’re opening our last bottle of Artiste wine.  Good thing mom and I headed up to wine country in two weeks!
