Sometimes, in my best moments, I think myself clever, maybe a little funny, whatever. It's at these moments I try to come down here and share all that *cough* brilliance *cough* with all you beautiful-on-the-inside-cause-I-can't-see-your-outsides people.
"Down here" is my basement, by the by. We've established that I blog in my basement, right? Next thing you know I'll be playing D&D, and starting my own pirate radio station.
So, yeah, the thing is, in all my other moments, I find myself pretty boring. And those are the moments I don't blog. Because why share the boring? Who wants that? And this is why there are only posts here 3, maybe 4 times a week. It's because, honestly, I only have 3 or 4 moments per week of wit or whathaveyou to share here. Or also sometimes, inspiration will strike in the car, and I'd love to race down here and blog about it the second I get home, but typically the baby must be carried up to bed or water must be fetched the second we walk in the door and the spark is gone. You know how it goes. I should carry a little notebook with me, to record the sparks. We'll see if that actually happens.
Hey! Father's Day was this past weekend, and it hope it was lovely for all. Ours was nice - I told Marc to choose what he'd like for dinner and he waited till about 2:00 Sunday afternoon to decide so it was off to the grocery store I went and let me tell you, there are few worse places to be on a Sunday afternoon. Home Depot being one, perhaps. But I got what I needed and I came home and cooked, and Marc helped, because he know he'd chosen some complicated shit to cook. We made this, and while the spicy tomato sauce was very nice and super simple, the gnocchi was a pain in my ass and it came out TERRIBLE. And I've done gnocchi before, so I choose to accept none of the blame. I also did mussels, and steamed shrimp, and some garlic bread. All that was yummy.
And with that, I have to go put Mason and myself down for a nap. I don't usually nap, but I am totally wiped today. Too many late nights, lately. Hopefully an Old Photo Tuesday later. I have an idea, and have to find the photo.
