It's time for another "Currently..." post with Anne at in residence. Make sure you check out the other blogs in the link up here. Read on to see what I'm consuming, exploring, getting, hoping, and seeing this month. Also, I didn't know what to do for these prompts and then yesterday morning, Dave and I were both awake, drinking coffee, before the kids were awake, and we came up with these answers together. I would currently LOVE more mornings like that please :)
This is not the most lovely picture but we're currently consuming a lot of guacamole. A few weeks ago a friend of ours got extra avocados in her grocery pickup order and gave them to us. Dave and Rachel made guacamole and now we can't get enough. This is from the batch that they made on Sunday. YYYUUUMMMM!!!
We haven't done it yet, but we're going to be exploring the memorial rock garden at our local university. Let me explain: A few weeks ago a friend came up with an Amazing Race that took place on our university campus. We could pick up the kit at her house and choose when to do it. It was a super fun way to spend an afternoon. One of the stops was this memorial rock garden with over seventy different specimens of rocks from all over North America. The oldest type of rock is over 4 billion years old.
Anyways, we were hoping to get back to just the rock garden this past weekend but it was pretty rainy so we're hoping to get there this weekend instead.
Clearly I didn't take any pictures of the actual rocks. Ooops.
I'm getting tired of cold lunches. I am so happy to be able to work but microwaves are off limits so I'm back to cold lunches. I've been eating a lot of cheese sandwiches. Yesterday I had guacamole and leftover salad for lunch but I need some new ideas. If you have any brilliant, vegetarian, cold lunch ideas, please let me know :)
This past weekend we finally got rid of our sandbox. It was Rachel's first birthday present and had lived under our play structure for almost seven years and the kids hadn't used it in years. So we gave it to our across the street neighbour.
After seven years, there was quite the indentation in the grass, so we filled it in with topsoil and planted some old grass seed we had in the garage. I am really hoping it will sprout and fill in nicely. We shall see...
Even though I have allergies, I still love seeing all the trees in bloom with their spring beauty. I took (way too many?!?!) pictures of the sun shining through the trees on Saturday night because I just can't stop!
So that's what's up with me currently. What's been up with you?
