My day

First of all I want to say that I'm thrilled to have my first follower!  

Now on to my day - it started with a trip to the library.  I love the library.  We have a nice small library on our little island that is quite sufficient.  We checked out some new bedtime stories and I actually ventured out of the children's section and checked out a cookbook for myself:  Everyday Italian by Giada de Laurentiis.  I love Giada.  She is one of my 2 faves on Food Network - Ina Garten is my other.  I find their shows therapeu
tic and they make me want to try out their dishes.  Which I should add - have never disappointed me.  So I'm hoping to try a few recipes out over the next 3 weeks till I have to return the book.  I'll keep you posted.

The next notable event of my day was not so good.  In fact it totally gave me the heebie jeebies.  I had an encounter with a SCORPION.  Well 2 actually.  I had just been out on the back porch with my little guy and I was letting him play outside (even thought it was h-o-t, we stayed in the shade) and I heard someone at the front door (perfect timing) so we came in and when I returned to the porch door I saw a tiny scorpion scampering next to the door mat.  I ran back in to get a hard shoe.  When I got back out he had completely disappeared.  He was right where my little guy had just been playing barefoot.  {Oops dinner has arrived - be back soon... well not so soon, it's morning again}  So I moved a few things around bcs I know they like to hide and I found not the tiny one but a pretty big one ~3-4".  I squished him and screamed.  Never found the tiny one....  It gives me the shivers to know that he is out there somewhere and growing.

Well it's now Sunday and yesterdays events seem so yesterday.  I shouldn't neglect to mention that my dinner was tres fab.  I convinced N (my husband whom I would love to refer to as husby but don't want to copycat someone else's cutely coined nickname) that take-out was what we needed.  He delivered!  Tuna encrusted w sesame seeds cooked just enough with some yummy sauteed spinach that tasted somewhat like a warm wakame salad - some rice and wasabi cream on the side.  Oh and a piece of delicious banoffee pie for dessert.  
Dinner was followed by the movie Gigantic which I found both entertaining and confusing.  Has anyone else seen this?  Can anyone explain the homeless guy to me?  Was it all a trip?

Anyways Happy Sunday everyone.  ttyl

I've actually eaten a scorpion. Shocker, I know.
It was for work. I had to or they would have fired me. Not really, but it wouldn't have looked good in front of the editors who were enjoying it.

Thanks for the shout out! That was a shout out, right? :)

That dinner looks delish. I might have to copy you and make something like that for dinner. Yum. What is banoffee pie and why haven't I heard of it?
