Today's Miscellany

Ok- just dictionary.com'd that to make sure that was really a word and not just something I imagined was really a word.

Well sorry to say that I've got an unwell baby boy sleeping next to me :(  His big sis brought home a little something late last week and now he's got it.  Poor sweetie.  He's normally full speed ahead for every waking hour.  This afternoon - fever & lethargic.  Geez it breaks your heart.  

Tonight's movie was fun.  Laid a blanket out in the courtyard, got some Haagen Dazs cups  for us and watched 3/4 of Ratatouille.  Then Miss S was tired and it was time to go.  Felt so great to be enjoying the outdoors for a change.  The heat lets up a tad at night.

Happy to report that we tried a recipe last night.  I say "we" bcs I forced N to participate in dinner prep.  I was tired from my day with my 2 kids + one 6 yr old cousin.  Our dinner prep didn't even start till 9ish.  So I requested some assistance and he obliged.  We made Giada's Shrimp Fra Diavolo.  Easy and good.  A little too spicy but that was bcs N was responsible for step one and let's just say that he used a very generous teaspoon of crushed red pepper.

And finally, I'm thrilled to have (insert drumroll) 3 followers and I've gotten my first comment.  Yay!

Till next time-
