A new post just to direct you to another blog.

You have to check out Cake Wrecks
A blog about cake mistakes? I know, but it is really funny.

I might be back soon with a real post!

FYI: Barbie's hair does not flat iron.

She was just lying there on my counter. Hair all matted from too many baths.
Begging for me to "please, just do something with my hair."

So I did it. I clamped the flat iron, still hot from its sleek-ening job on my hair. I clamped it right on. I was going to make her beautiful again if it was the last thing I did.

Poor Barbie. Her hair is gone.
Poor flat iron.

Local Eating, Local Reading

I found an organic produce co-op near me and I am so excited to start getting produce! I have ordered the book Simply in Season and I am anxious to get started on using the fruits and vegetables that are actually in season right now. A group of people up here "on the mountain" take turns picking the produce up so we are not all driving every week. People working together for a common goal is a very good thing!

Another very good thing is the little bookstore in my town. Teri, you know which one. :>) I have set foot in it exactly one time in the 7 years I have lived here! Why I have been preferring to drive 40 minutes to Barnes and Noble is beyond me. There is a decent selection in there and practically any book I want can be ordered.

The kids and I can walk to the bookstore. It's not exactly a short jaunt, but a 3 mile walk is good for them(and me) right? I envision us taking our weekly walk to pick up our mail and peruse the bookstore. The price of gas has definitely spurred me on to think outside the box. And now I am able think outside of the "big box" store!
