Second, in the week that I haven't posted, I forgot how much I HATE the new blogger. Formatting is a horrendous pain -- even just typing is a pain. Random breaks inserted before you even start, no breaks where you intend them to be, hidden nonsense. It's already driving me crazy. Hopefully they either fix it soon or I just stop noticing it or I may have to switch blogs. It's taking way longer to do anything. Is it driving everyone else crazy, or am I just overly anal?
Thirdly, hi! I feel like it's been forever since I was here. Just mostly been busy trying to keep this dang house clean. Who knew how helpful carpet really is with the world's two furriest dogs. I'm vacuuming twice a day, and vacuuming the couch at least twice a day, and I cannot stay on top of the hair situation. Advance apologies for when you visit. I'm doing the best I can, but it is still one furry green beach house. As for the pooches, they're still enjoying their new house and town -- we've been driving down to our favorite downtown beach, and Heidi LOVES to plop along in the water while George still steers clear (but gets very excited when stumbling upon giant dead fish on the beach). Otherwise, they have their heads in the garden, eating woodchips, digging up toys left behind by the previous owner, and chasing the poor rabbits that live under our shed.
|Always with the woodchips.|
|Baby boy P, baby boy B, stuffs for ME!|
|Rainbow chard with beans. So pretty!|
I also made my first vegetarian chili with tofu. I found this recipe, skipping, of course, the garlic, as well as the mushrooms. I loved this but it was on the sweet side, from all the tomatoes and obviously the actual sugar. Brad tolerated it, and ate it for lunch one more day, but he's vetoed any future returns to this recipe. I'll try a new tofu one next time, skipping the sugar.
|You so sweet, chili.|
|You so sticky, cookies.|
|You so tasty, fresh fish and veggies.|
|I like how the steam looks like the ghosts in Poltergeist.|
|I am SO in love with these beautiful gray and white sheets. Target, cheap.|
|Gray down comforter, Target, also cheap. Green shams, total score: $3.50 for two... all because someone ripped the paper packaging off. SCORE.|
