Nothing monumental is going on, so I'll just combine lots of small things into one wonderfully compact update.
I got sick last Sunday and was out of commission for a few days. I went for a ride on Thursday, but felt absolutely horrible and could barely pedal. I cut the ride short and crawled home. I layed low for a few more days, and went out for a ride yesterday (Sunday). It was better, but still felt sickly. Today was even better. Slowly but surely, I'm recovering.
The Banana Belt early season bike race series started this weekend, but I was in no condition to ride in it. I don't think I'm going to make it to any of them this year at this rate.
Plans on our home expansion project are moving forward. More on that later.
I've made a few recipes out of Farmer John's Cookbook. Curried butternut squash soup on Friday, and acorn squash stuffed with kale and pears last night. It's amazingly good stuff. Farmer John farms on a community supported farm, and this book not only contains seasonal recipes, but interesting stories as well. I like how the recipes are listed chronologically, so you just flip to the time of year you're at, and you find recipes for all the common CSA produce that's in season.
Junior Digital Photography:
Mette got a digital camera for her birthday and has been taking gobs of pictures and photos. When she gets together with her little buddy Violet, they chase the boys around and take pictures of them. The boys are now accustomed to running away and holding something over their face, claiming they're being chased by the paparazzi.
Mette has three more loose teeth. Woo hoo! The tooth fairy better go to the ATM this week.
Annelis is still doing horse riding lessons. She fell off for the first time a month of so ago, but is back in the swing of things. She was going over very small jumps last week. I can't wait to see what happens this week!
