What I have been doing instead of Painting!


I have been completely and totally engrossed with this book. I couldn't stop reading! Much to the detriment of home, career and children. What can you do? My book club is reading it and it is all the buzz with us. I thought I would have to cram the 661 pages before our meeting next week, oh no, I finished last night. The Other Boleyn Girl, it's a good read.


Just as I finally finish the book, Gavin sets up Rock Band. He got a Playstation 3 with Rock Band for his Birthday. We started a rad family band yesterday - Phie Phi Pho. Miss Lavender rocks the vocals, Clo Clo rails on the drums, Clutch and Hartsy are on guitars. It's very addicting once you get the hang of it. Schools out for spring break, who cares about bed times! We were rockin' and rollin' till ten o'clock last night.


Check out these carrots. Gorgeous and tasty. We got them at Whole Foods Market (which I affectionately call Heaven Foods Market) last week. Between that shopping trip and all the delectable fruits and veggies I got at my co-op this week, I have been doing some fancy cooking. Last night we had lentil and barley soup with tri-colore carrots and plums. It was delicious!

yes those carrots do look delicious! I love though that I can go out to the field and pick carrots and eat them right out of the ground (yes with a little dirt on them. It never hurt any one right?) I am dying to meet up for book club so I can finally talk about The Other Bolyen Girl

I have NEVER seen carrots like that. They are so pretty.

Didn't the Other Bolyen Girl movie just come out?

What is co-op?

So is the Other Boylen Girl a must read? I also reccomend These Is My Words. Your hair is delightful and Rock Band would be a great family activity. Except you guys are probably really good at it, so where's the fun in that? Where as when I play the vocals I have an ugly voice to match my ugly face, it's good times. Maybe next year I'll give you a demo.

Yea for finishing the book and for yummy food. Did Chloe tell you about the purple carrots she picked at Farmer Tom's and Farmer Reuben's garden last week?

So when is the concert for this awesome new rock band I keep hearing about and how much are tickets?

emily said...

You guys, we freakin' ROCK! Anyone who can needs to come over and rock out with us. It is so much fun!

Yes, cloe was so not impressed by the purple carrots in her soup - been there done that.

Sister, I'll explain the co-op later.

We are trying to jam out The Other Boleyn Girl for our book club so we can go see the movie. It is a good read.
