Lunch and an Update

Ah yes, it has been awhile since I have had much to say. The reason behind that is four-fold.

First, hubby got a new laptop at work. This is great because the old one isn't very good. CD burner doesn't work, the computer must be plugged in at all times to work at all, slow processing, etc and so forth. So, he gets a new one. I am hoping that I will be granted the old, crappy one. But I had to plead my case with the powers that be and it took a few days. I am now up and running with the crappy laptop. Hurray!

Secondly, in spite of my only working a part-time job right now, I have been crazy busy. We are getting ready to start the summer curriculum at church for the kids so I am going through music to fit everything, learning the story as I am also helping with the teaching, and I had two music rehearsals yesterday. Not to mention all the sewing I have been doing for work. I am almost done making huge theatre curtains for our kids' room that is decorating (quite obviously) like a theatre. They look great and make such a difference in the room atmosphere. Anyway, all that to say, I'm busy! :)

Thirdly...ok, I only had two reasons.


And finally I leave you with a challenge. I am having a stellar salad for lunch today. Very fresh, very tasty indeed. Whoever can correctly name every item pictured in my salad will win a fabulous prize. Fabulous.

Hmm.. interesting game. Tomato, Carrots, Shredded Cheese, Lettuce.. I bet there is more, or this would be too easy. But I can't tell.

anne said...

Very sad Shawn. There is so much more. Let's work on our specifics here, shall we?

Jean said...

Halved cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, sliced strawberries, shredded mozz. cheese, spinach and lettuce leaves, diced green peppers and chopped red peppers.

I had to keep copy and pasting my reply to go back and look at the picture. Is that cheating? :)

I'm glad you got the crap laptop. :)

Your salad looks yummy. Must go eat now.

anne said...

Poor Shawnie-poo. Never fear! I will have plenty of ways for you to redeem yourself!

Buffy said...

I want that stellar salad. Honestly. Did you make it? Tell me how.

anne said...

I know! SO good I could eat it all the time. Just like Jean said, good lettuce, spinach (or romaine), sliced carrots, cherry tomatoes, strawberries & sweet peppers. Topped off with mozzarella cheese and a good pile of Ranch! It would also be excellent with some cashews or sunflower seeds. Mmm. I might have to have another one today!

Hey, Anne! I was going to play your guessing game yesterday, but got distracted by my kids! Anyhoo, thought you might like to try a variation on your salad. Here is my Formula For A Perfect Salad. Plus some yummy dressing recipes to boot!

What did Jean win, hmm?

Oh, and I guess this is me, officially de-lurking.

anne said...

Welcome Talena! And thanks for de-lurking... :)

Great idea! Thanks for passing it on! I can always eat a salad. Like right now. A salad sounds perfect!

Oh, and Jean requested I make her a salad for her prize! :)
