Fun fun fun day!!
Matt and I cleaned the ENTIRE house this afternoon. It hurt so good!!
Until I realized why my vacuum cleaner was making funny noises and losing its ability to suck:
THERE WAS NO BAG IN IT!!
Total fail. After having it in storage this summer, I guess I didnt’ realize I’d taken out the dirty bag and have been sucking up dirt into the empty cavity. I hope it’s OK now that I brushed this all out into the back of our yard…
Snacktime. I’ve been carrying around this Larabar half since before BlogHer! I have this thing about bars. I wait and wait and wait to eat them until emergencies. I need to just eat them!
Did you notice the new HEADER!? ^^^ !
With a little inspiration from J3nn, I re-did my header photo shoot of last year and got to work on a fresh look. After the Twitter debate over headers on Friday, I took everyone’s (and I mean everyone’s) advice and kept the wood board and green spoon. And added in some tastes from my kitchen and garden 🙂
Here were some of the other shots in the running:
While I blogged, Matt made dinner!
We discussed the menu earlier in the afternoon and he executed it perfectly while I pretended to not notice it was time to make dinner.
On one side, garlic roasted potatoes (400* for 30 minutes after being rubbed in Garlic Gold)
On the other side, red quinoa mixed with grilled chopped eggplant and squash, fresh basil, and smoked Caromont Goat Cheese
Lots of salt, pepper and red pepper flakes added flava
We are re-implementing an evening walk session. Two summers ago (read = before Matt started going to bed at 8PM for Great Harvest baking) we used to go on an evening walk nearly every night. It’s so peaceful and a lovely time of day and a great way to digest.
We strolled about 30 minutes through our neighborhood. Nice.
