Good News, Bad News

I'll give the bad news first...


As I was sitting down on the couch to feed Peyton this morning, I knocked my full, fresh cup of coffee off the above counter. And.... it was (and still is) a mess.


Then Gillian repeatedly was spilling her oatmeal on the ground. It never quite looked accidental, even though she would say "oh no!" each time. Perhaps she just thinks her mom is so cool, she was trying to be like her...




The good news is good news indeed, though. Both of my kids are sleeping right now. Peyton is a total sleepy head. So, that is not too amazing. But, it has been a long time since Gillian has had a morning nap. That also means it has been a long time since I have had a complete shower on a weekday morning. It felt good.


I think Gillian must be worn out from our big outing yesterday. We drove all the way out to Oakley, to enjoy the scorching heat of the valley. We made a few visits, with a couple friends out that way, and it was a long day. But, it is good to see friends, old & new!




We got some little white eggplants in our farm box this week. We have been waiting for this! We will have Eggplant Parmesan tonight. It is a favorite.
Why does organic produce have to be so dirty & bruised. Are we not supposed to care about aesthetics anymore?
The fly is just a plastic toy. But, he demonstrates the other problem with organics - totally bug infested. I nearly gagged several times last night, as I had to scrub millions of bugs off of our Kale.
Oh well. You can't have it all, right? I guess there are benefits to organics, too.

haha! I am sorry to laugh at your misfortune, but it just reminds me of something I would do.

Poor couch, maybe you could pour coffee over the whole thing...it's kind of a pretty brown.

Erin! Sorry about the coffee! You probably know this, but Huggies baby wipes take any stain out of almost anything. (sort of makes you wonder what they would do to a baby's bum...but alas...they are great for cleaning up stains)

It is coming fairly clean with Woolite Oxy Deep. Hooray!
Nini - I didn't know that about Huggies wipes. That is good to know!
