Lessons Learned…Unfortunate Lessons…

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:

I used:

  • 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.

  1. Ooh, yummy looking pasta! What time is dinner? Sorry kitty is wigged out. Ours tend to recover well. They are used to us terrorizing them šŸ™‚

  2. I felt immensely guilty for at least the next hour;). And my husband guilted me every time I called to check in (the life of a full-time PhD student is so hard). The pasta was definitely a success:). thanks for reading!
