Ah, the nineties



I heard this song at Trader Joe's last night after church.  Shopping for fruit for school lunches.  It made me smile so much.  "Do whacha like!"

Poem for Wednesday

The Secret Sits

We dance round in a ring and suppose,
the secret sits in the middle and knows.

Robert Frost

Middle of the night Northern Exposure viewing to thank for remembering this little poem--Chris says it on the radio after his trial to see if he has to go back to West Virginia for breaking his parole.  The judge decides that it would be a hardship to the town for him to have to leave, so gives the town 3 years to find a new disc jockey.  Then he will be summoned to West Virginia, if the state remembers to do so...which was always an unsettling ending to me.  The case was built on the idea that Chris in Cicely is not the same Chris who was in prison in West Virginia.  That he is so changed, he is a different person.

Lately I love...

Browned butter rice crispy treats...i will never make them another way again.  Thanks, Smitten Kitchen Cookbook.

Downton Abbey, I tried to watch this a couple years ago and didn't get the appeal.  Then, after waking up at 1am and not being able to go back to sleep, I thought putting it on would help us just fall asleep instantly to the British muttering sounds, but at 5am, we had watched almost all of Season One and now are about to embark on Season Two.

The monologue on SNL this past week--Anne Hathaway is great on SNL anyway, but when the whole cast did a spoof of One More Day, I was delighted!

Getting started on construction projects that will prepare us for Baby #3...the garage has a new wall and Peter and his dad are working on the electrical today, we will have a new office out there hopefully by Christmas!

Putting a little apple juice in a hot cup of Orange Spice tea.  So delicious!

Preparing for Advent.  Getting some ideas together for an Advent Conspiracy Group, a new candle set up, a meaningful calendar, etc.

Using up leftovers well.
