Easiest Hanging Daybed

Easiest Hanging Daybed

I think this is such a fun idea. I want one in my backyard, and I am going to try to build it myself. It looks easy enough. :D

We're selling the Jeep

See the ad here. Dustin is preparing for mourning. We've had so many good times with it. However, it sits quite a lot now, so it's time to get a new one. The next one will be a Jeep Liberty with a diesel. It'll be fun too.

A mix CD and a yummy sounding drink.

So I am making a mix CD for Elder Toutai. It is a fun challenge to find music that is appropriate, but I think I have enough to fill a whole CD. I've got mostly classical music with no words. A bit of Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, and some Enya. I like it. I am going to send some stuff to him today. Or tomorrow. Hopefully today.

Today on my google reader, a blog I follow had this recipe and it sounds so delicious! I thought I'd share. :)

Watermelon Agua Fresca

4 cups cubed seeded watermelon
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup agave nectar, or to taste
2 limes, one halved, one cut into four wedges
pinch of salt (optional)
a small bunch of fresh mint leaves

Puree the watermelon and water in a blender until smooth. Push it through a fine mesh sieve to remove seeds and pulp (if desired.) Pour the juice in a pitcher and add agave nectar to taste. Add the juice of the halved lime and a pinch of salt if desired.

Place a lime wedge into each of 8 glasses along with a few mint leaves. Crush with a cocktail muddler, then fill each glass with ice. Pour in the watermelon agua fresca, and stir before serving.

So, we are doing okay. Miaya and I are like oil and water quite often. I love her to bits, but I think we may be just a bit too similar, and there fore clash often. Sarah is getting more wiggly, more chatty, and more smiley. It's great. She got immunizations yesterday, and was pretty cranky last night, but is doind lots better today. :) She is also in the 90 percentile for everything. Just like Miaya was. She weighs 14.1 lbs and is a little over 25 inches. hahaha. Dustin has been working tons of over time, and so sometimes it feels like I never see him. He's such a good man. I love him. Miaya is going to her very first sleep over tonight with a few of her cousins and her grandma and great grandma Adams. She's pretty excited. It's got a whole princess theme going. I think she'll have a blast.

That's how we are. How about you?
