Silly Straw

Lucy won some silly straws for practicing piano.  She loves making crazy, or should I say, silly, designs and trying them out.

Noah had some buddies over.  They played Lego's for hours.
They loved it and I loved it.

Homemade Spaghetti

I made spaghetti!
I did not know how easy it could be.
Did you know noodles are just eggs and flour?
I mixed:
125g all purpose flour (the instructions were in Italian)
and 1 large egg.
I had to add maybe a tablespoon of water since be dough was dry.
I kneaded and kneaded and kneaded and kneaded.
Then let it rest.
I put it through the pasta maker a few times and then cut it in the spaghetti side.
I boiled it in salted water for just a few minutes.
I added mushrooms, olive oil, garlic and parsley.
yum, yum, yum and yum.

I can't wait to make noodles for lasagna.

Already, 2015?  Seems impossible.

I woke up with my mind on my blog this morning.  I'm not sure why, I think about the blog often.  I like connecting with my readers, I like posting about the things we do and my random thoughts. 2014 was a sparse year for blogging.  It was a great year, it had it's ups and downs, like anything, but for the most part, it was a wonderful year.

We ate snacks and played Catch Phrase.  Yummy and HILARIOUS.

Here's to more blogging!

11 years

Tony surprised me for our anniversary and took me to the Wild Goose Inn (B&B).  We spent a few days there for our honeymoon, so long ago, and it was a lot of going back. 
Thanks, honey!
