– First homegrown salad of the year! I’m glad I decided to grow lettuce indoors this winter; it’s so easy and satisfying to have something ready to go this early. My cilantro is just about ready for some light thinning — I think guacamole might be in order! (That’s a veggie burger under the extremely melted cheese, by the way. I covered it up and then forgot about it for just a minute…)
– The cats have always spent nights in ‘their room’ (the utility room, here) — that started when Beany and Booty used to chase each other around all night. When they had the entire basement in Minneapolis, I never heard a peep. In Hinckley, they’ve been pretty good, but Birdy started being a monster a few weeks ago, crying off and on and waking me up. I’m not sure what changed. So, for the first time, the cats have been allowed to roam around the house at night. I even leave my bedroom door open, because Birdy will sit outside it and cry, otherwise. The strangest part is that neither cat actually comes into my room. They seem to just hang out in the hallway and family room all night long, not doing much. Suspicious.
– My mom contacted Laurie a while back about adding a couple of Laurie’s owl prints to her owlway (owl + hallway) at the cabin. Laurie graciously obliged, and now the prints are hanging up. The internet is a pretty cool place, no?
