Hello Blogland!!! Everyone having a fabulous week so far??? Totally random question-daughter is coming up to visit (with our grand-doggie Noelle while her hubby is away in school) and I’m thinking of taking the “plunge” and doing the colored streak in the front of my hair. Should I go Krista-Pink or maybe turquoise???
I discovered after posting Sunday that somehow a whole paragraph about cucumbers got deleted. So if you were wondering what on earth Zen and cucumbers had to do with anything in the post……..
On Sundays after church we stop by the grocery store and I pick up the fresh produce for the coming week. I’ve found that we are more likely to actually EAT it as opposed to watching it become penicillin if I spend a bit of time prepping everything. I mellow out on Sunday afternoons by playing some tunes on Pandora and chopping up veggies and such. I’ll chop, peel, wash, spin-dry, and bag up lettuce, kale for smoothies, carrot, cukes and whatever fruit we’ve brought. I often will make up a pot of brown rice or other grains in the ricecooker (LOVE) at the same time. I’ll also haul out the food processor to chop and slice onions and such for later in the week. It saves time getting dinner together!! I’ll also pack up in individual containers my work breakfasts and lunches for the week. It’s all rather soothing and Zen and does make life easier in the mornings not having to deal with all this crap!!
Now that y’all know my anal-retentive food-prep tendencies….. On to some more FUN stuff!! This week there will no taxidermied rodents to ogle but instead let’s explore Vintage mother’s Day Cards!! I’ll be starting off with sharing cards from the 30’s through the 40’s era. I always love the sweet images from this era and the pastel watercolor effect the artists used.
I’ve been somewhat ache-y from gardening this weekend so yesterday I pulled out an easy maxi outfit to wear!
Today I started out in a thrifted patchwork maxi skirt I’ve worn before. I managed to trip over myself and RIP the skirt badly. I’m not sure I can fix it–it was rather delicate (chiffon) and it tore through the patches. So this was my planned outfit for Wednesday:
Tonite is my date night with my TV Boyfriend Mark Harmon. I’m off to finish up dinner and get ready for some MrBill and Mommy lap time! Have a great evening and I’ll be back on Thursday!!
