When you can sleep under it? Apparently, a plush bed and a radiator are insufficient to warm Teenie’s old bones. She has to be the craziest little dog ever. Of course now she and Cricket are in dispute over control of the new bed so it looks like I’m going to have to make another. Cricket never gave the old sleeping bag a second look mind you. Now that it’s an awesome bed she wants to luxuriate on it in the bask of the radiator. But what will I use to make a bed this time? I might have to snag an old sleeping bag from the thrift store. I always worry that stuff has been peed on but it’s not like I’m going to sleep on it I suppose.
We did end up going to Costco today but it ended up being fine. I didn’t go insane over the toys but I’ll tell you they had that place stocked to the gills. There were boxes everywhere. Our cart was pretty loaded down but it was really just the insanely large bag of dog food that made it hard to push we really did stick to our list. Unfortunately we’ve been to the new location in Columbia and now I’m hooked on the imported ricotta and they don’t carry it in Glen Burnie. I saw this on Everyday Food and have been wanting to make it ever since. I have an acorn and a butternut squash to use so I’m gonna have to figure something out. Think the city frowns on keeping cattle? I just need one cow, no big deal right? Well, a cow and a chicken or two.
I have a nice new book. I’ve already marked the flower brooch project as something to try. I don’t know why I am so attracted to flower brooches. I don’t own a single brooch and have never worn one but I have several ideas and magazine tear outs with pictures of the flower brooch that I intend to make myself. I guess I’ll add this to the collection and get around to it some time. I figure eventually the moment will be right. There are some other nice projects in the book. I’m particularly excited about the number of projects embellished with embroidery and/or the use of lace and fusible web. Chase loves to look at this book. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s all the purple.
We splurged and went to Donna’s for dinner. Oh, Donna’s how I’ve missed you. Chase had a toasted cheese that was so nice. It was nice slices of fresh mozzarella on real bread toasted until melty. We thought she might not be interested since she’s used to greasy spoon style grilled cheese but this one came garnished with lovely slices of ripe pear. It was the nicest children’s plate I’ve ever seen. It was even had a little salad of field greens. Chase loves being out and waving at everybody. She was showing all the other babies how to dip their bread in the olive oil. We also met our first cop at the farmer’s market. Based on this interaction I think it’s pretty safe to say she’ll never pay a speeding ticket either.
