I made a yummy pie with fresh local strawberries and rhubarb. My crust turned out perfect (that doesn't always happen). I use the recipe from Angry Chicken. We devoured it.
I am harvesting arugula by the arm full. It's so yummy in this salad.
We will be done with school tomorrow (yay!). Then we are taking a little mini-vacation before swim team starts up next week.
I made it through The Hatfields and McCoys this weekend. It's worth a watch.
It rained last night which means I don't have to water the garden today.
I folded a HUGE pile of clean laundry while watching Jane Eyre (for at least the tenth time). I love the part where he says:
"I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you - especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land some broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then I've a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, - you'd forget me.”
I bought a new camera- a Nikon D5100. I've been saving for months. (My old camera was a Nikon D40). The new one has mostly been sitting in the box. This is one of the few pictures that I have taken with it. I'm kind of scared to use it and maybe even feeling a little guilty for buying a new one. I haven't totally convinced myself that I'm keeping it. We'll see.
Happy Monday Friends.
