Weekend, etc

Just some photos, today. I put all of these on instagram, or facebook, or both. I am certain facebook can't handle photos of my feet, so I refrained in that instance.

 Simon. He's such a sweet boy. 

 Murray yawning. He's a troublemaker. 

 I visited my sister and niecey on Thursday. 
Ava is still cute, even if she does have a Hitler hairdo now. 

My friend Rozina has joined me on this here Low Carb Adventure. 
She came over for dinner Friday night, and here's what I made.  
Spicy-sweet glazed shrimp (loved. Although, confession: There's a little honey in the glaze), heirloom tomatoes with basil & mozzarella (haven't given up cheese yet. I know), and this salad from Smitten Kitchen -- chopped salad with feta, lime, and mint. To die for. Make it. And make it my way -- use lettuce instead of green beans, then definitely use cucumbers, radishes, and mint. It tastes morrocan. 

I have lost five pounds. 
I know that seems ridiculous since I only started this diet last Wednesday. It hasn't even been a full week. 

 Finally tackled all the dead and dying plants on my back patio. This is a before-and-after. I really, really hope I don't kill the hell out of these. 

 Murray in a bag. 

I got these shoes and they are the best shoes I have ever bought. I don't even care what they look like, because they're so comfortable. Also, I realize I am showing you my freakishly long second toe. There it is, in all its freakish glory. This is why I can't wear peep-toe shoes.


  1. you have really pretty feet! there, i said it.

  2. Well thanks! I'm self-conscious of that freakish toe, though. :)

  3. HA! I seriously thought "What a cute Hitler baby!" when I scanned the photos before I read what you'd written.

    There are a lot of babies with Hitler hair, I think. (The baby on Up All Night had a Hitler-do for much of the season) but I'm generally averse to telling people I think so. Kind of a touchy subject. Understandably.

    1. That is totally true, now that you mention it! Ha!

  4. I like what you've done with your blog. You did change something, right? Hopefully, I'm not stroking out right now.

    YAAAAY for 5 pounds!!!! Someone's taking care of low-carb business!!! And, I also love Ava's Hitler 'do. I hear they're all the rage in Milan.
