Weekly Photo Update


I agree…


BYOY

 


The periwinkle is in bloom…


And so are the weeds…


3 x-rays and a laser beam…

I’m thinking red and blue must be the universal colors for hot and cold…


Did someone say FREE FOOD…


The Future sight of my 2011 Pumpkin/Squash Patch. Well… as soon as I can pull all those weeds and get it ready that is…One things for sure… it better start warming up around here pretty soon… Other wise I’ll be stuck inside drooling over this book…

The flight was uneventful… I sat between The Girl Who Thinks She’s A Bird and some man who was wearing a pair of Levi’s with a pant size of 36″ x 30″ …according to the tag in the upper right hand corner or his pants…

I wonder how much the airlines spend on 1/2 oz snack packets each year?

 


I wonder how many people have used this same bathroom…


Do you think the flight attendant will really bring you a beverage while you’re in the loo?
Do you get a larger snack packet if you eat in the bathroom vs your seat? Hmmm

Did someone say free soup?


Sooo…. The Girl Who Thinks She’s A Bird comes home from school the other day and says to me The Mathematician invited us over for FREE soup on Saturday… and we’re suppose to dress nice… it’s some sort of fancy dinner…

Did The Mathematician really say “FREE soup”

Yes

Okay… (twist my arm)

Turns out…
We weren’t just showing up for FREE SOUP…
But actually a 4 hour dinner…


More formally called PASSOVER!


I almost fell off my chair when I read we had to drink 4 glasses of wine with our meal… luckily someone else brought Apple Cider to the “FREE Soup dinner”…


The Mathematicians mom (The Mad Scientist) is a teacher… so we each had our own picture book to follow along with…


We used our pinkies to dab 10 drops of wine (I used cider) onto our plate…

We also made a sandwich out of Matzo bread and apples…
And we were also given an egg…

And some lovely canned fish?


And there was a candle…

And a little later there was some sort of potato dish and fruit salad…
I think being a guest in someones home is kinda fun… mostly because you get to eat things you don’t necessarily eat in your own home… Food prep is always interesting too…


Sometimes there’s extra little goodies like human hair in your food…
Or if you’re really lucky…

Cat hair… mmmm mmm yum!
