sami ta-doo update…
welp. sometimes, i actually rock.
specially if there’s beer involved. so. this was on the 10th of april (the day i, incidentally, started my period. coincidence? i think NOT.) and i have watered faithfully and sang little songs and sent good vibes and kept.the.baby.away. and guess what?
everything is sprouting!
and good lord it is exciting. who knew?
plant veggie garden/herb patch in my backyard
feels pretty good to check that one off the list.
in other news…tried this recipe
effing.de.lish. ‘cept, mine didn’t have pumpkin, and yers prolly won’t either because there is a National Pumpkin Shortage. weird. but it was still totally amazing without. and just a quick word here – melted manchego cheese in polenta? i would sell my soul for thee. so that was my recipe for the week. also – i’ve been outta town for a minute, so i let myself off the hook for a recipe this week. also the dishes are piled up.
so there’s that.
as fer the Adventure of the Month (which may just have to be it’s own post here in the future); we took the bear on the first camping trip of the season. i wish i had pictures, but i don’t, because i am a bad mother. also. sleeping all of us (me, my lover, the baby) in one tent?
other than the lack of picturing and sleep, we had a great time out in the desert by some great big sandstone cliffs. i think the bear’s favorite activity was gathering wood for the pile, for the fire. with both the words pile and fire sounding exactly alike, causing slight alarm when the bear was like “baby, biii”. fire? pile? baby in the fire? baby help with wood for the pile? who knows. it was nice, though, to be out and about in the desert air and sunshine. and, it was a total adventure, so i’m off the hook for another month.
as for the compost bin and the marriage proposal. broke and broke. no money no compost bin. no money no ring.
workin’ on it, though.
*totally done that.
