Pictures from the week

Is the weekend already over?  Who let this happen!!??

I have noticed, as of late, that I have started taking lots of photos….granted many of them are of Sadie (she’s my favorite subject, of course).  I always end up with a rather large collection of photos by the end of the week so today’s post is going to be a photo dump from the last week or so.

Speaking of my favorite photo subject:


Second only to the top of the grill, this is Sadie’s favorite perching spot.  The sun was shining very bright this day and Sadie was soaking it up.


I made a quick stop into Walmart last week looking for a few items for a craft project I was working on.  I walked through the front door and smack-dab into this:


I was helpless to its powers!!

Not only was it the Reese’s Easter Eggs (which are the perfect ratio of chocolate to peanut butter) but they were on clearance!  I think I blacked out because the next thing I knew I was back in my car and this was sitting beside me:


Luckily I was smart enough to ration these out — some of these made it into the house, the rest are being stored in our garage for a later date!  At least I know we won’t run out anytime soon.


And speaking of that little arts and crafts project:


This was a project that has been stewing in the back of my mind since I went to Kauai with some friends almost a year ago. My friend Laura, through a companion ticket and her timeshare, made this trip pretty much free for me so I wanted to given her something in the way of a thank you.  I put together this shadow box last week with a few items that I collected from our trip (and a few from the craft store) and gave it to her for her birthday last week.


While shopping for yogurt and cottage cheese last week (yes, I am now a cottage cheese eater…my mother would be so proud) I came across this interesting snack in the dairy aisle:


It’s ingredients list claims only chia seeds, coconut milk, and bananas.  It was pretty tasty and definitely filling so I would be interested in trying the other flavors.  And come on, any food item that comes with it’s own spoon is a win for me!


And finally, I got a head start on this years vegetable garden this weekend.  We have been collecting empty milk, eggs, yogurt, and cottage cheese containers in order to reuse them as planter boxes.  Sure it may look a little ghetto but hey, I didn’t have to buy any over-priced planters this year so go me!


I did my planting on the living room floor, hence the garbage bag protecting the carpet.  I would have gone outside but there was a really interesting show on the History Channel that I didn’t want to turn away from!

This years crop (if everything goes as I would like it to) is going to be carrots, peas, kale, chard, brussell sprouts, romaine lettuce, kohlrabi, chives, oregano, basil, and thyme.  Phew!  I hope it is a good growing year!

Here is a pic of my planters:



We are pretty high class around here!
