Trying new things... I've never cooked an artichoke. I am going to try it today. I'll let you know how it goes.
I can't believe the end of March is here. I'm at a loss for words right now. Not much to post.

Spring is here on the calendar… but not quite here in Michigan. My sweet hubby helped bring spring to me with these tulips.
Most of my recent photos have been “processed” with an editing program to create a vintage feel or some other sort of processing. To me, it’s another way to be creative. This photo is straight out of the camera. Other than a slight crop, this is it. I wanted the evening sun to be as pure as it was when the photo was taken.

Please leave your shoes at the door.
Taking off one’s shoes at the door can be a simple celebration of everyday life, as easy as kicking off your shoes at the front door to symbolize leaving behind the harried outer world, then lighting incense and being soothed by the subtle aroma of lavender wafting through the house.
What an uneventful week... same stuff. Work, school, tennis practice & dance for Emily, football workouts for David. Oh yeah, Emily will be playing tennis this year. She told me that her coaches told her that she was really good. I guess those lessons over the past few summers helped her. It's been a while but at least she has an idea. Mike and David have been running together at night. Mike has been doing great losing weight and eating healthy. David is conditioning for football and track.
Have a great week everyone!

I like hugs and I like kisses,
But what I really love is help with the dishes!
Emily and I had a good Saturday. We spent it at Birch Run and Frankenmuth. We went into a few stores and got some pretty good deals. I wanted to go to the Fossil store. I found a purse that I wanted and got a great deal on it. It was 50% off the marked down price. So it was about a 68% savings off of the original price.
We headed to Zehnder's for a meal. Emily ordered off of the vegetarian menu. She got a huge plate of steamed vegetables. There was cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and a whole zucchini and whole yellow squash. It came with spinach ravioli. She liked it. She ate the entire zucchini and a little of everything else but brought a lot of it home. She at my cottage cheese an entire plate of bread, half of my plain mashed potatoes and some of their delicious noodles. She must have been starved.
We are going to have to do this more often.
