haa haa- that’s my girl. we’re driving from gymnastics and i’m sharing a snack with lizzy and she says outta the blue, “OMG mom, OMG. haa haa haa!”
yes she made herself laugh…
so today we went shopping for new pans at the good old homegoods. it’s got to be my favorite store! i totally scored 2 small pans, a small iron skillet and a large, super deep fry pan. it felt so nice to throw our old pots out tonight! they were in pretty bad shape. of course we could have gotten new pans any time, but i never found what i was looking for – until today… and since everyone was super generous as always with our christmas monies, we used some of that for the pots and pans. so they’re like the gift that keeps on giving. it was so nice cooking tonight. nothing like super shiny stainless steel to cook on the gas top stove.
so thank you m&p ajb and nana and d&r for the chirstmas money. it’s being put to good use, and our bellies thank you too!
i’m still looking for a sausier and maybe another fry pan and a pasta roller – so i’ll be out on the look out!
oh and today i found a white snake in the yard… completely white, with blue/black eyes. it was about 9 inches long. i was super geeked, so i caught it and put it in a tuperware bowl (with holes in the lid for air) but the little dude beat himself up pretty bad trying to find an escape hatch. when i got home this afternoon, he was eternally asleep. too bad too, i was going to get a habitat for it- it’s pretty rare to find a white snake. i’m hoping i find another one!
so the new year has kicked off- getting back into the swing of thing with lizzy’s classes and stuff… she’s been back on track with doing her school work, like a good girl!
we’ve been reading little house on the praire- which she’s really liking a lot! and i’m enjoying it too of course.
i have a few little art projects that we’ll be doing now that i’ve gotten thecraft area in cleaned up of the christmas clutter and boxes…
i’m also still waiting on my photos to arrive- apparently they got lost in the mail – we’ve had a few things not make it to our mail box over the past few weeks. it’s super frustrating that the USPS can’t manage to get our mail delivered correctly.
and finally, we’re hoping this perfect weather keeps up – we have a little surprise for la petite in the works!
