Ok, so I am finally going to start using this--- yay! I think it will be fun. Well today I am going to go to the grocery and then come home and clean a little and then go to work. So exciting. We've had sort of a rough week and I'm glad it's the weekend. Geez this is harder than I thought it would be- whenever i'm not trying to write a blog I can think of all sorts of fun things to write about. But now I can't. This morning was nice because i was home to cook daniel breakfast (whereas normally I am already at work) and we got to sit and chat a bit, ant the end of which i got a little grumpy because I am not feeling so well (poor Daniel) but it's ok. This weekend we are going to hang out with our friends kyle and sarah who are just great. We went bowling last weekend with them and kyle got 7 (!!) strikes!! WOW!! He was pleased with himself. I think my score was 52? 47? Somewhere around there. I took my knitting to work on between turns, so that redeemed the poor bowling skills, plus the fact that we always have so much fun with kyle and sarah. They are from wisconsin. I swear everyone i meet from the northern midwest states are super nice people. Anyway I am looking forward to doing more stuff with them.
Next weekend there is a green energy/sustainable living festival in Fredericksburg that we want to go to!! how exciting! I think we are going to take a little mini vacation and stay at a bed and breakfast or something; it will be so nice. Fredericksburg is an adorable town anyway with all sorts of quaint and local shops, full of german culture (in the middle of texas?) and a whooollle lot of peaches and peach related things. I will have to take some pictures. It will be fun. And who knows what sort of things we will learn-- how exciting.
So I am currently reading "the omnivore's dilema" which is just EXCELLENT. I highly recommend it. It's full of all this great information and very well written, and I am just so excited about it. I can hardly wait to finnish it-- i can't decide if I want to read it again or just start lending it to everyone I know. Of course Daniel still needs to read it. Once he's read it we will have all sorts of interesting conversations because he is always telling me about the books he is reading. Anyhow, it's all about the (incredibly messed up) american food system, and it puts into words everything i always want to tell people about food but can't seem to condense into one short-but-sweet conversation. There is just too much information. So go read it! We rarely buy books (normally just have the library order them, or read them while in the bookstore) but we bought this one. A whole whopping $20 and it was well worth it.
Ok thats enough for now.
