Lessons learned:

(From Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess)

-Sometimes, they just get meaner AFTER you cut their heads off.
-Hearts are more likely in pots than in grasses.
-If you already have that fish, you'll have to throw it back.
-Buy your potions on the honor system.
-You may just need more monkey.

You know what's good?

Vegetable Alicha -

Saute 2 medium chopped onions in 4 TBS oil
Add 4 carrots, a bunch of potatoes, and a few green peppers
Add Garlic and fresh Ginger, and salt
Add 3 cups water

Cook on low for 15 minutes

Add a bunch of cabbage (like, one small head cut into 1" wedges)

Cook on low for 45 more minutes

It's always my favorite on the veggie platter, and you can make it just as nice at home!

Okay, I think we should go now.

Fishermen overfish waters - blame and kill seals for killing the fish.

And footage of a baby seal (he sucks his fin at the end, it's worth watching).

A triumph of the human spirit

We cleaned the garage! Those of you who have seen our garage might have thought it impossible...a veritable organizing Everest, if you will. It took four days (sans Sherpas), and we still have a bunch of things that we're trying to give away (my old worktable, a Steelcase desk, and an almost-new washer), but it's delovely!

In honor of their imminent reunion:



And, I don't know...Posh?

We used all of the cabinets we've removed from the house (from two kitchens and a bathroom).

We didn't think we could do it, but we did it! We can do it again! Let's do it again!
