Discovering me … one stitch at a time

My Valentines Day Extravaganza

I had such a nice Valentines Day.

I got spoiled with flowers…

and homemade cards (those are the best kind).

When the boys and I looked through old pictures recently, I realized that there were barely any of me. I asked Tom to try to take more of me even though I hate getting my picture taken. Here I am with my giant bouquet.

We spent Valentines night eating pizza with the boys and rehydrating the Water Kefir that arrived… I was so excited!

This is what they looked like after we put them into water. I know they look gross, but assure you that they will eventually taste delicious!

We’ve named our kefir “Kefir Sutherland.” The first thing I do every morning is run downstairs to check on Kefir Sutherland. This morning, I forgot that I had moved him last night to a warmer location and panicked that he was missing.

The other creature in our house who likes warm locations is Sammy. He has a knack for locating sunny spots.

On Saturday, Tom and I left for a little getaway to the beach. I didn’t take ANY pictures, well, except for one of the Sourdough loaf that I made. Like Kefir Sutherland, our sourdough also has a name… SourJoe. I carried SourJoe the entire way to the beach in my lap. If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is! This loaf had a good sour flavor and a crunchy crust, but was still too dense in the center… definitely some room for improvement.

We went to a Valentine Musical. It was really good. I am always amazed by people with musical talent, because I have none.

On Sunday, Tom installed a new thermostat at the beach that he can control from his phone from anywhere! How cool is that?! We might as well be the Jetsons!

While he worked on the thermostat, I laid on the sofa and watched 5 HOURS(!) of TV. Can you even imagine that?! I was a lazy slug. Then I only got up to GO SHOPPING! I might as well be a Kardashian!

I never get a chance to stroll the shops in town without boys hanging off of me and whining to leave, so it was nice to walk around on my own. I bought Biggest a dreamcatcher that he’s been wanting and I bought myself a big fluffy scarf because it was cold. I even tried on some swimsuits in anticipation of Spring Break in Florida, but that just ended up being depressing.

Hope that you all had fun with your sweethearts this weekend.

Don’t you just love Morticia & Gomez? It doesn’t get any better than that.
