Fridaily (running late)

A much happier day, all around. The house grows more house-like; the floor almost feels normal now. Much delicious food was consumed - clearing out the last of the leftovers for the weekend cooking and farm share is not exactly a chore. Some running around was done: I have TWO nosepieces on my glasses once more, bills were paid, the post office was visited, and some minor shopping accomplished (how were we out of milk again?!). I also hooked the heater back up and got it running (all by myself!) and ironed shirts (also all by myself, but that's much less impressive). None of the entertainment center is back together yet, but I haven't actually missed it.

Last night's dinner is worth noting: creamy baked halibut with a sour cream and (local!) chives dressing, and a green salad with 8 items from our farm share: arugula, lettuce, baby chard, radishes, carrots, salad turnips, cherry tomatoes, and snap peas. SO good. Jake, in fact, said it might have been the best halibut he'd ever had, and that's saying a LOT. Especially since he doesn't tend to favor the creamy foods. I was very chuffed with myself.

Tonight we're having hot dogs, so I doubt I will top that, but I am also making kohlrabi au gratin, so it will probably still be good. I forgot to make bread early enough to have it done for dinner, but I remembered that I'd forgotten while I was still at the grocery store and could buy some buns, at least.

... several hours later, after farm pickup, dinner, and baby bath, and bedtime, and a complete load of laundry that included the Very Important Blanket...

Happier day, but not much less busy. The small monster woke up 30 minutes earlier than usual, which is a far cry better than 3 hours, and did take a delicious 3 hour nap in the afternoon. She went to bed a little late (owing in part to the Very Important laundry), and I am finally sitting back down with my laptop. Have a picture of one of the zucchinis from our farm share, with a baby for scale:

I... think I will go to BED now.
