I learned an unfortunate lesson yesterday:
1. If you throw a potholder at Shelli, she will believe it to be a big scary monster
2. If you pick Shelli up and take her over to the potholder, she will escape…by any means necessary.
Was I pissed? Definitely. Was it my own fault? Absolutely. Joey told me that she spent most of the day thinking that every inanimate object was a big scary monster. I gave the cat PTSD.
Tonight, I started teaching my friend Katie to knit…I know, it’s the blind leading the blind. But at least I can show her to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. Then, once I learn other stuff, I can teach her that too:). While she was practicing her knit stitch, I knit along and started this cute little swatch on a whim…
I think I’m going to keep going with it and seeing what kind of scarf it may become.
And, in keeping with the “more toward whole foods” movement, I had a very tasty dinner full of fresh produce:
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 roma tomato, diced
- a few handfulls of fresh baby spinach
- a sprinkle of parmesan cheese
- a bowl of (cooked) whole wheat penne
I sauteed the onion, tomato, and spinach in a pan with olive oil and some garlic powder. I also put a little leftover marinara sauce on the pasta to use it up, but I probably won’t do that next time. The tomatoes were so fresh and wonderful!
And while I’m thinking about it, I found this blog today. It’s a GREAT read. This is what I aspire to have….a yard full of vegetables and chicken poop.
