Rules of the house dictated that Maddy wait 'til her 18th birthday before getting her first tattoo. On that very day, she was there getting this:
I had a pretty good weekend. Didn't get as much done around home as I'd have liked, but some -- unpacked a box of books in my bedroom, started cleaning out the big craft cupboard upstairs (the only one to do up there yet), and washed and blocked some knitting projects. I did some fun stuff -- the knitting thing on Saturday afternoon, meeting and photographing my friend Ann's brand new baby on Sunday morning.
And cooking! I made a nice dinner on both Saturday and Sunday nights -- and on Sunday, we had a full house at the table. So nice. It was so wonderful using my new, big, nonstick-covered skillet! I made Chicken Pad Thai on Saturday and a chicken and pasta dish with sun-dried tomatoes and broccoli on Sunday. Both recipes were from the Flat Belly Cookbook. Yum.
