My new favorite Aldi find:
|Only 5 dollars! Plus 72 cents for the sheep...|
This replaced the metal colander I picked up off the trash pile several years ago. Considering that that particular find never drained water correctly (I know! It had ONE JOB!) and was also missing a handle, this new red beauty is very welcome in our household. Bienvenue! Wilkommen!
Last week, as mentioned previously, I helped serve dinner to the high school Theater Arts students during Tech Week. (Rachel's in the play as a townsperson. This is a step up from last year, when she was a dancing spoon.) I also signed up to contribute fresh fruit, because I'm a team player like that.
So! I don't know what came over me the second day, but it probably had something to do with the 99-cent cantaloupes at Harris Teeter plus the presence in my breadbox/junk repository of approximately 50 wooden kabob sticks. These sticks must have been waiting at least 10 years to fulfill their destiny. Whatever the inspiration, I ended up putting poor Susie to work, shish-ka-bobbing melon pieces and grapes to feed the Theater Arts kids with.

They were a hit, and no one got it in the eye, either. But I'm never doing this again - way too much work. Those kids can just eat grapes off the vine, the way God intended.
Let's see, what else? Tulips are in bloom!
It's a relief to see, as they are about 3 weeks late this year. It's been a cold, cold spring and now it's going to be close to 90 degrees later this week. Mother Nature is a fickle creature.
And there was a new sheep tableau in Susie's room the other night:
|Training for Cirque du Soleil, I guess|
It's scary how adorable these creatures are. Sometimes I just sit on the couch and hold one. True story.
