Lee Lee Oriental Supermarket

We needed an adventure today, so I took the kids to Lee Lee Oriental Supermarket.  It's so cool!  It is a huge market with crazy foods from all over the world, live catfish and other sea creatures in tanks (which made delia glad she is a vegetarian, but not cloe), bizarre fruits and veggies, and lots of tofu.  We thought we were safe with sweet treats, so we all picked out a fancy wrapped confection.  Just before we left I spied some big fat straws and knew we had found a treasure - BOBA!!  We love boba (big black slippery tapioca balls) smoothies.  They take five minutes to cook, so we wipped up some after-swimming-boba smoothies to wrap up our adventurous day.

p.s.  I'm dying over cloe's (middle child) sun-kissed freckles.

The Last Carrot

What's up with this carrot?  It got buried under my gargantuan tomato plants and we forgot about it.  We pulled it up today and each broke off our choice nubbin to eat.  It was like a mystic family good luck ritual.  I'm excited to see what becomes of it.

Women's Conference was a really great experience.  It was fun to be with my sister and I loved connecting with so many wonderful women.  I managed to come home with a few prints leftover from the event.  So, for all those who have been asking and any who would like one, write to me at and I'll give you the info.  I have 10"x8"s of "In the Strength of the Lord [all Things are Possible]" (below) for $50 and 8"x4"s of "Big Apron, Little Girl" (above) for $25. I pushed for an 8x10 so it would fit in a standard frame, and the other print was a cute little surprise. I only have a few, so write right away.
