we are off to france for an adventure with gigi and i won't be back to this particular place;)

actually, gigi has been great at the whole sleep thing as of late, but this would have been great at one verrrrry long point in our lives.

p.s. i think i have said those words to her. does that make me a bad momsie??

new additions

 mirror for 5 duckets
of course i painted it cloud white and voila.
i am unsure if i would like it at the bottom of the stairs or in my bedroom beside the bed.

design: yours truly;)
construction: mr. yours truly!
casey found this old barn-board at work and we made it into a little mudroom coat hook.

I am posting a recipe as I have been slacking big timer.  it is a soup of left over veggies, my version of minestrone (i don't recco broccoli, cauliflower or potatoes as they just turn to slop) 

heat olive oil(i eyeball this but lets say 2-3 TBS)
brown some garlic and leeks
add diced carrots, celery, fennel
add italian herbs(oregano, basil, thyme)
salt and pepper
toss in the other veggies you want to use and let them cook together for about 10mins
add 1 box of veggie stock
add same amount of water
and my secret ingredient is the rind of a left of parmesan wedge 
let is all simmer for about 30min 

somethings you can add are chickpeas, barely or  brown rice 
i add nutritional yeast to my bowl for my complete protein!

it got me.

this bone crusher of a flu got me. i spent the beginning of the week fighting this sucker with oil of oregano, vitamin c, hot lemon water, and a neti pot. i even tried cold fx!! at times i thought i had beaten the beast,  but for the past 48 hours i have been on my ass and evv-err-yyy muscle in my body aches. like muscles i truly did not know existed.  need i say more? so, tonight i am indulging in whisky. ewwwwwwww. how does don draper do this and why does it look and sound so darn delicious.

on the upside i pvr'ed an episode of david rocco's dolce vita weeks ago and lo and behold i must have set it up so that it tapes all episodes. i have been known to "just press buttons till it works" and it turns out it worked to my advantage cause i have been watching it back to back to back.

i think i am drunk i better go.
