Don’t Step on This Dog

Don't Step on This Dog

A word to the wise: if your house is covered in toys and you have a habit of stepping on things, whatever you do, do not step on this vintage Fisher Price dog toy. Just don’t do it. Trust me.

We have a special houseguest this weekend. Jonathan’s youngest brother is visiting from Nashville and it’s been wonderful having him here. We miss our families, way out here on the edge of the Colorado plains. So when we are blessed with a family visitor, I tend to really soak it up and enjoy the entire visit. I love hearing the kids tease their uncle and just generally fold him into our daily life.

Tonight, we had a simple meal:

Two kinds of rice (brown basmati and white)
Three kinds of beans: Aduki/Northern mixture and Black (doctored with cumin, cayenne, chili powder)
Sharp cheddar, cilantro salsa
Homemade cornbread + butter
Roasted carrots with a little salt
Chocolate chip cookies (a free tub we got at Papa Murphy’s for taking a survey. Gotta love free cookies.)

Hope you are enjoying a weekend full of family and friends. Happy Spring…we finally have warm weather here in Denver!

  1. I know what you mean about missing family! I miss them too, living here in Tallahassee! No one is around. I do get to see cousin, Diane, from time to time which I relish. But I sure miss the rest of my family. Enjoy your time with Gregory!
