Spring, Lite and Simple

I do not like the new Blogger interface. Just sayin'. If the last few posts haven't looked right it's because I haven't figured the interface out yet.


I was feeling well for the past week or so, and then we had a storm come through; and I was thrown for quiet a loop. It's the most ironic thing, but I can't wait for summer. I know that I'll be miserable then because of the heat, but at least the spring storms will be over. We did have another baby appointment, and with the exeption of some low blood pressure, everything is going well. The midwife is beginning to suspect that low blood pressure just might be normal for me, and then my mom tells me it runs in her family. Chuckle, chuckle.

Thing One's godmother came over for a few days and watched the boys so I could catch up on some cleaning. I realized that I can always get to within one load of dishes of being caught up, but I never get that last load done. It almost feels like I'm afraid of having the kitchen completely clean! So, it'll probably kill me for the next two days, but I'm going to finish the dishes tonight! And if I actually ask, Nick will vaccum the floor. Then we'll be able to start the spring cleaning.




I inherited a set of dishtowels that some great ancsestor in my mom's family embroidered, and the first one finally fell apart. Really good towels since it has taken thirty-odd years. This one was always a favorite with my sister and I; and despite everything Mom would tell us, we alwasys used this one as an apron instead of for dishes. Maybe that's why it fell apart first. I just couldn't throw the whole thing away, but I'm not sure what I'll do now that I've got it framed.

Oh yeah, the pasta salad. . . . I woke up this morning craving a cold pasta salad. So after this mornings dramatics and remedies, I cooked the pasta, chopped some broccoli, half a green pepper, some grape tomatoes, and shredded some carrots. I fried the chicken with salt, pepper and sage and then chopped it up. I mixed it all together with a generous amount of mayo, more salt and pepper, two tsp. sugar and one tbsp. vinegar. All that it needs now is some fresh, chopped parsley. But it's really good as it is.

Thing One is becoming dramatic again.
Ciao!
