a bullety update for you

August 23rd, 2009
  • I planted purple clematis from my neighbor L out in the yard, let’s hope it takes.
  • hung out laundry, brought in laundry, folded laundry, kids put away half of it, I put away other half, Steve said, More laundry? Rinse and repeat. Entire summer has pretty much equalled this = laundry. Everything’s always wet, dirty and/or muddy over here.
  • had our awesome friends and their cool little kid over for dinner. They brought me us a bottle of the best damn rose ever — Juno Cape Maidens, from South Africa. “A refreshingly crisp, deep salmon pink wine with hints of pomegranate, green toffee-apple and cherry,” sez the review. Yes, that’s just how I was going to describe it! Thank you, you two. It was very sweet of you. Come back anytime.
  • Steve did the cooking cuz he’s in charge if we’re going vegan for dinner. (I offered up cheese enchiladas but we decided against those.) The guy knows his way around the kitchen. Also is a slut in the bedroom so this is just a win-win for Wacky Mommy.
  • “Be a duchess in the drawing room, a chef in the kitchen and a slut in the bedroom.” Let’s all remember that, ‘k?
  • Roasted potatoes with garlic; a pot of brown rice; his world-famous cholle, aka chana masala, aka garbonzo stew that was so spicy and good; salad with lettuce, tomatoes and nasturtiums; a little dish of chopped onion and jalapenos to garnish; a pot of mac and cheese for the younger diners; for dessert, watermelon (which we forgot to serve) and those yummy chocolate toffee cookies from New Seasons. I loved every single bite of this dinner, but I really should cook all the dinners the rest of the week to make it up to my man for knocking himself out tonight. Grilled cheese for all my friends! And tater tots!
  • I am happy and full. Good night.
  • ps I am back at work, so if I disappear, do not fear! But you know me, I’m never gone for long.

    Sounds like a really fun/yummy evening. (Watermelon is one of my favs–I wouldn’t have let you forget.)

    Sounds delicious. Remind me to conveniently stop by your house at dinnertime when we’re in Oregon next summer.

    Have fun back at work. Max is having his first day of third grade today and I am wandering around the house wondering what to do with myself? Do you want to come over and play legos with me?

    Lib, isn’t that funny? I never forget about watermelon, I love it so.

    TOL, OK.
