My Head Is a Barometer and Other Random Thoughts

Evidently, today is National Incompetent Driver Day. All of them were on the road. In front of me. Grrrr.

Today is also National Road Construction Day. Combined with the above makes for a very frustrating commute.

My head is a barometer. Every time we've had a frontal system move in (which has been about 572 times in the past couple of weeks) I get a splitting headache.

My house smells like cardboard. If you've ever been stuck in a small space with a billion boxes, you know how unpleasant this smell can be. I cannot walk two feet anywhere in my house without running into a tower of boxes. The cats, however, are quite happy. They think it's their new playground. Oh, to be a cat...

We are moving on Friday. I CAN'T WAIT!

Ellerbe Fine Foods in Fort Worth is phenomenal. Go eat there. Now.

My job is trying to kill me. But I still like it.

We might be adopting a border collie in a couple of weeks. He's in Oklahoma right now. Road trip is in our future. OOOOOOOklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains! Everybody now!

I heart farmer's markets.

That is all.

Buying and Selling

Last Saturday, Lobster and I went out and made our first big purchase for our new home. Behold, our new lovely fridge:

Isn't she purty? She's very large too. You want to know what the best part is: she's stainless steel which means she doesn't hold magnets! Why is this the best part, you ask? You see, Lobster is a bit of a hoarder. He keeps everything (you can imagine how crazy this make someone like me who doesn't like clutter). One thing he likes to hold on to (besides every free koozie he comes across) are magnets. Every magnet imaginable is on our fridge right now: State Farm, Texas Health Systems, random veterinarians, magnets from Singapore, magnets with nothing on them, bag clip magnets, picture holder magnets, etc., etc. My favorites, though, are the collection of Save The Date magnets that he has received from friends getting married. There is probably about four or five of them from 2008 alone. Really? Do we still need to save the date from two years ago? (Love you, Lobby!)

But now, I don't have to resort to nagging and cajoling Lobster to get rid of his magnets. Now we MUST be rid of them because there's nowhere to put them! My evil plan is working! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! (Love you lots, Lobby!)

In other news, we spent all of last Sunday preparing for the garage sale we will be having with Cupcake and Captain at Captain's house. I never realized what a pain in the arse preparing for a garage sale could be. Especially while also trying to pack your house to move. I'm pretty darn sure this will be the last garage sale we participate in for a long time. That is, of course, unless I can convince Lobster to get rid of his massive magnet and koozie collection. Here's hoping! (Hugs and kisses, Lobby!)

Things I'm Loving Now

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately. My life is going 90 miles an hour...while texting...and putting on mascara...and steering with its knees. I'm just trying to keep up!

But in order to contribute something of substance to my poor neglected blog, I hereby present to you a few of my favorite things these days.

Real Food by Nina Planck. Eye-opening and a call to arms, at least for me. Seriously, read this book. It will make you want to throw out all your processed foods and start raising cows. Kidding...kinda. But it sure did inspire me to buy raw goat's milk (I can't find raw cow's milk anywhere convenient yet, but I will). I was pleasantly surprised to find that it tastes just like 2% milk. Love it! And SOOOO much better for you!

How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. So, after reading only halfway through the above-mentioned book, I ran out and bought this cookbook. Mark Bittman is an advocate for fresh, simple and delicious food, preferably prepared from local and seasonal ingredients. This cookbook literally shows you how to make everything and the best part is that most all of the recipes are simple but DELICIOUS! Even a domestically challenged gal like me can do it!

Purple Cowboy wine. My new favorite! It's seriously yummo and quite cheap ($12 a bottle). I demand that you try it! Please?

Have a great weekend!
