Somehow my camera has miraculously been fixed. I’m taking full responsibility 🙂 All I did was turn it on and it went to the view function instead of staying stuck in video where it has been for the past few days. Now I can download all the pics I’ve taken to post. YAY! I’m back! Here’s a bit of a picture recap.
Now I can finally show you our little veggie family that appeared this week. I know you have been waiting with bated breath 🙂
We also have some spinach and lettuce sprouting. They were a last-minute addition, but have already started to peek through. Can’t wait for fresh salads with all the yummy veggies! Obviously they are nowhere near ready to pick and eat, but they have proved they can make it through the dog gauntlet. Garden success!
I made Kath’s Coconut Almond Granola and it is AWESOME! Perfectly sweet and coconutty. I had it on some pineapple chobani yesterday and it was like being swept away to a tropical paradise. Almost.
I didn’t cook it for as long as the recipe says. I only made a half batch and cooked it for 15 minutes, stirred, and cooked for another 5. It was not burned at all, but very crunchy once it cooled. Yum!
And finally, a BIG THANKS to Katie and Lori for my Earth Day Challenge prize pack. It arrived in the mail (much more fun than plain ole letters, bills/ junk mail that arrive on a daily basis) much to my delight and I immediately ripped open the box to see what awaited inside.
Katie (click on the link to check out her store), the creative goddess, made a produce bag and a coffee cozy that I can’t wait to use.
Envious of her sewing skills right now since I had to send the husband to an alterations place and pay $10 to get his pants hemmed (which may be the easiest sewing skill ever, but still not one I possess).
They also included seeds for basil, chives, parsley, green beans, and brussel sprouts. Oh garden, you only thought you were done. Here I come!
Ecological dishwasher tablets went straight from the box to the dishwasher and have already done their job simultaneously cleaning and saving the earth. Ok, maybe not SAVING, but doing their part to lessen the negative effects of human conveniences like dishwashers. That is a necessary convenience for me, though, so good thing I have an ecological option.
The final goodie was a yummy! Sun-dried Mango from Natural Zing. Consumed immediately (partially, of course) and loved instantly.
Thanks ladies! The challenge was fun and worth the effort minus the prizes, but what an added bonus!
While we’re on the “green” subject, check out An Apple a Day for an Envitote give-away. Pretty cool reusable bags that are sturdy, collapsible, and washable.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday! We are planning to be slightly lazy, clean a bit, and there is some yoga in the future. Typical Sunday perfect for recharging for the week ahead.
What does a typical Sunday look like for you?/Is there such a thing as typical?
