Monday Meanderings

I worked on a new quilt project for a little this afternoon. While it would be nice to actually finish a quilt, I just had to try out my idea and see if/how it would work. I'm very pleased so far. Maybe by next Sunday I'll have some photos to share.

Because laughter is like medicine and we're trying to live a more healthful life, I do my part in keeping my husband amused. Today he received his daily dose while proofreading my Spanish. I meant to say "Thanks for stopping by my blog" but apparently my vocabulary missed the mark because what I really wrote was "Thank you for giving birth on my blog".

We had butternut squash soup for lunch today and it was delicious! I roasted the squash first, and while it was in the oven I sauteed some onions. Then I scooped the squash out of the shell and threw it in a pot with the onions, some homemade chicken broth and a little nutmeg. After simmering for 1/2 an hour I pureed the whole mess, put it back in the pan with a little cream and voila! really yummy soup. Along with some of the homemade bread I made this morning.

Still lovin' the bread book!

Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment (postponed from when I was sick) and just in time; the tooth with the cavity has gotten very sensitive over the last few days.

The BBC has a new show that's absolutely hysterical! Kingdom follows three lawyers in a small coastal town in England populated by a cast of zany characters. What a hoot! Definitely the best thing on TV this summer.

I need to get back to Spanish. Now that hubby has corrected my work, I need to get my Spanish blog updated with this week's Project 365.

Happy Monday!

I think it's so thoughtful of you to do things to improve your husbands health! Too funny!

What exactly did you say or bring forth? :)

One of our (Canadian) missionary friends in Argentina was apologizing to a man in his church and said: "pienso que yo embarasé a su mujer". I think you'll be able to figure out why this is funny.

Yeah, Sharon THAT would be awkward! LOL

Here's another one, just happened during my stint at AP. At lunch, a woman across the table wanted to know what section we were working in, so she asked us older women: "Uds. estan en cintas?" (put the last two together) We were indeed working in listening to tapes, but most definitely NOT pregnant! That became the 'laughing' table that we came back to every time!
