Over the past few days, life has become rather crazy. First of all, I am off to a prep class for a few days this upcoming week, for a professional certification I need. I have to be in the city early in the morning (which is quite different than my usual commute). I will still be posting, but I may not have the time to visit all of your blogs and comment like I always try to do. I will catch up when the madness is over, promise. I will be reading all of your comments (and looking forward to them to break of the monotony of my long days coming up). Please, keep them coming:)
On another note, my sister-in-law gave birth to my beautiful niece Nola, after 28 long hours of labor. She is officially my new hero. I have never seen anyone that zen, while in that much pain. I am already in love with the newest addition to our big family, as you can see below (if you follow me on Twitter, this is old news). I heart baby noises.
One of our close friends rescued a kitten near Bodega Bay, that was near death, and nursed her back to health. She was about 4 days old at the time. Meet Miwok, eight weeks old. Between Miwok and Nola, I am baby happy. Look at that face!!! I didn't want to put either of them down.
My first ever apartment in my college days had an avocado green stove. It was both hideous and wonderful at the same time. My mother-in-law had this electric fondue pot that she got as a wedding present to husband's father back in the day (in the same sort of avocado green). She recently passed it on to us, and I feel so lucky. The pot will continue to be loved. It has so much character. I can't wait to whip this bad boy out for company.
We had a huge harvest of San Marzano tomatoes, and decided it as time to make some spaghetti sauce. This time we threw in some veal shanks, and it is turning out to be the best ever. I will have to get around to sharing our recipe one day.
And finally, it was time to take a trip here
I have talked about how we needed this bookcase, and
we husband is building it tonight, while I am blogging. He is also getting a little help from our friends.
Can't you tell how eager they are to work?
Is everyone having a lovely weekend? I would love to hear what you have been up to.
