Let's start talking about the weekend with Saturday, shall we? Because Friday was my first mammogram ever, and let's just say there was screaming (really more like a yelp) and pain for the rest of the day (and most of Saturday). Yes, I am a big baby.
So! Saturday! After an epic Dance Central 2 workout (200 calories!! I can eat another icing-slathered sugar cookie!! This is what fitness is FOR!) I made a grocery list and gave myself an unfortunate pedicure while my fabulous husband ran to the grocery store. BEHOLD:
Yeah. It seemed like a good idea at the time. What's so notable about this whole episode is that NOT ONE PERSON in my family mentioned them. Not even one of those non-compliment exclamations like, "Well, look at your toes!" I am not sure if they did not notice (unlikely) or if my toes are just so horrific that they were embarrassed for me. (NOTE: I am not fishing for toenail compliments! They are unworthy!)
No one said anything at work, either...but I work with a bunch of boys, and they don't notice anything, do they?
We met friends for dinner and were going to have to head home early because I needed to chop vegetables for the next day (tight schedule...church then to my sister's, 40 minutes away, by 12:15!!). But our friends said, "We can help chop! Sounds like fun!" (They are unique and lovely people, for sure.) So we got everything chopped in like 15 minutes and then played Dance Central 2 for a while.
After a beautiful Easter service, where I managed to score us seats in the sanctuary instead of overflow because I was paying attention when the usher flashed two fingers, we dashed home and I made a blueberry, raspberry and peach crisp and cut up potatoes to add to the already chopped fennel, parsnips and Brussels sprouts. 30 minutes and a drizzle of olive oil later, I had this:
It was a great day, topped by a lot of crazy ping-pong (table tennis, for the more civilized).
I did get a few minutes to work on Les Rubans...here's ribbon two in progress next to a completed ribbon one section:
Now if you'll excuse me, there are some Cadbury Creme Eggs calling me.
