I taught my son how to make a grilled cheese sandwich on the stove today. Sometimes I think the greatest thing I’ve taught my kids is how to cook what they like to eat. Since I hate cooking, one day they’ll be able to do all the cooking and I can retire. I should also teach them to clean really well. It’s a good dream.
I haven’t been reading much lately. I’ve been picking up A Circle of Quiet when I really want something to read, but reading aloud to my kids has taken up quite a bit of my personal reading time. So, when we went to the library I did grab two books I’d never heard of and I started reading Wicked while waiting at the doctor’s office one afternoon. I’ve had it for a while (borrowed from a friend) and never read it. How much of the musical is based on the book I wonder because the book is not PG.
For my birthday I really wanted a new purse. I have the hardest time finding the perfect bag. It has to be open at the top, be able to stand up, be light inside so I can see things. Well I found two that I liked and ended up getting them both. I’m not a huge fan of pink, but I liked everything else about it and the leather one will be perfect always (except that it’s dark inside – can’t win them all).
I really wanted to try something new with my hair. I’ve been going darker and I wanted to warm it up, get away from the ashy tone that is my natural color. My hair dresser added browns and reds and I loved it. But no one noticed. No one at all! So I guess it wasn’t the big change I was hoping for. (By the way, those are not before and after pictures, they are both after).
