I'm finally getting around to fulfilling (most of) Writer Chica's photo requests from last week's meme.
She asked for our grill. (With bonus Pup butt - she's probably going for the grease cup.)
I've got a great picture of our husbands leaning over the Chicas' old little tiny grill. From that same evening, there's a picture of me with a beer and wildly unkempt hair (I think we were in the process of moving). Good times have been had by the grill.
And she asked for our bookshelf. Well, here's the biggest one. I organize my shelves by subject (sort of), with knick-knacks and photo albums throughout. A quick tour: Top left: Reference books. Top R: Wedding photos. The framed picture is our engagement picture, turned sideways. Second L: Religion, anthologies, plus Nickel and Dimed apparently. Second R: Fiction I've been vaguely meaning to read. Third L: Recent aquisitions, feminist tomes. Third R: Science writing and such. Fourth L: Hiking and travel Guides. Fourth R: Series books (HP, Tolkien, Dark is Rising, mysteries). Fifth L: Science textbook(ish) and a binder full of recipes. Fifth R: Misc. Fiction. There's one more shelf at the bottom that's full of photo albums, magazines, and tall reference books. Plus we've got a 2nd shorter bookshelf in this room, plus the heaps by my bed. And lately, I've been giving away paperbacks when finishing them.
Finally for tonight's installment, I present my dinner. Chica asked for something yummy I made from my veggie box. Here's the pasta primavera that was one of the week's suggested recipes. It's got 2 zuchinis, 1 candy onion (or walla walla), ~5 carrots, 1 cl. garlic, ~1/4 # green beans, (supposed to have 3 tomatoes, but we were out), a bunch of fresh basil, olive oil, parmesean, and multi-grain pasta. The plastic container is because I am eating leftovers at my office (I'm a retail widow.)And now business man's shift is almost done, so I better finish the figure I am working on so that I can pack up and go home.
