A Slice of My Life – Week 8

Posted February 25, 2012

The boys are fond of one of those conveyor belt sushi places.  These are always my rolls of choice.

Spencer’s ingenious rain catcher invention.  “Now we don’t have to go outside to see if it is raining, we can just check to see if there is rain in the tube!”  Taped to the window by himself.

Remember back in September when boots and tights seemed so exciting?  Now I’m ready to throw them all away.  Actually soon after this photo was taken I had to throw the tights away because they developed a huge hole.  Bummer.

Post Fat Tuesday bling.

This week was mid-winter break at school.  Not to be confused with winter break or spring break.  Or any of the many other days that there is no school.  Ahem.  Anyway, both boys stayed home with me on Wednesday and it was a beautiful sunny day.  Sunny days mean parks.

My Valentine’s Day gift came a little late, due to AT&T and something about our cell phone plan.  My old phone was 3½ years old, cracked, unable to receive pictures via text – I’m telling you, I was living in the dark ages.  I love my new one.  Thank you honey!

My very first Instagram photo!  Yes, new phone means much better camera and access to Instagram, a phenomenon that I could not and did not understand up until a couple of days ago.  Now I am hooked.  And I have no idea what I am doing with it but who cares.  So yes, those are large candy covered malted milk balls.  They come out every year in our favorite candy shop about as soon as Valentine’s Day is over and I buy them until the day after Easter when they go away for another year.  I can usually say no to sweets, but not these.

Eating lunch out is tricky for vegetarians, or at least I think so, but not at Revel.  It is my favorite place these days.  I met a friend and we shared the hearts of palm salad (shockingly good), the kale pancake (ditto), and the tofu rice bowl (ditto).

Just as I was about to take this left turn, I realized that those things swinging from that giant crane are two port-a-potties.

Graham was so smitten with this pain au chocolat, that he wouldn’t even let go of the plate so I could take a picture of it.  Then he and Spencer proceeded to eat out the chocolat part and leave all the pain part.  Poor me.

Graham is more and more interested in art and he has been taking art classes.  This is a recent self portrait.  I was just kind of stunned by the modern art quality, how he colored in his face to reflect his dark skin, the fact that he included the monster on his shirt that day, and the little hands sticking straight out from his shoulders.
