As I sit here, I am trying to think of something positive to start off my post. I will go with- it is sunny outside, I always enjoy seeing the sun. Today has been exhausting, not really physically, but mentally. I have a migraine from it all. But in lieu of complaining, I will just write a few simple updates.
1. Tonight I have no idea what we are going to have for dinner. We didn't grocery shop this weekend and so I suppose I'll have to get real creative or just eat Easter candy.
2. If you look back at this post: Time for Herbs you'll see a picture of my once-beautiful herbs, emphasis on the "once". Since that post, the dill, cilantro, and parsley have all died. The thyme has all but died. I've replaced the dill and the parsley and am trying to salvage the thyme. This all is very sad. Note to self: next year wait until May to plant herbs.
3. I love when I get prompt thank you note cards in the mail. Not because I want to be thanked really, but because I think that thank-you note writing is a dying art form that needs to be rekindled!
4. Husband is coming home early tonight because I needed him to, that is nice of him.
And now for this post's favorite kitchen gadget: a bench scrape. This is a great tool for scooping up chopped vegetables and transferring them to a pot. Sometimes I forget I have one and it's exciting to pull open the drawer and see it there! Mine is like the one in the picture (from Macy's) but has a red handle.
