the lady at the thrift store greets you and asks where the rest of your kids are. Jim and I thought it was pretty funny.
I can't believe its Monday already, the weekend just flew by. Even though we had snow last week, I'm beginning to feel a bit of spring in the air. If nothing else, I know we're closer to spring than to fall. I'm anxious to see how the currant bushes fared over the winter. I'd like to get the worm box out of my kitchen and back into the yard. I'd just like to be outside and not be bundled up like an Eskimo!
This weekend Jim got the new thermostat and rewired it, so everything is back to pre-power failure functioning. This is a huge relief. He's planning his next task, a repair of the flashing around the chimney. In some ways, I highly recommend hiring an incompetent contractor to do a job around your house. It can be highly motivating. The bottom line for Jim is,unless he knows its beyond him (plumbing repairs involving a blow torch) he does it himself now.
I got quinoa from out last food order and everyone seems to like it. I made a pilaf with it the other day that was quite good. On Friday, I met someone (a very well respected local doctor) who serves millet as a dessert. I'm hoping to try some of her ideas later this week. BTW, that same doctor saw no problem with my son's veggie diet. In fact, the word thriving was used to describe him.
