A peek into my week
This week we’re helping my daughter Erika and her hubby move into a new house. Such fun to see sweet one-year-old Ranger toddling around his new digs, peeking out every window. With a second baby on the way, their little family has well and truly outgrown their tiny newlywed one-bedroom apartment, and we’re thrilled they have room to stretch out.
There’s more moving tomorrow, so I only have a few minutes for a post. Do you like to peek into other people’s grocery carts in the checkout line at the grocery store, trying to guess a bit about their lives? I do. Along those lines, I thought it might be fun to share what’s in my amazon cart right now. I love the convenience of shopping on amazon, and almost always have a thing or two I’m thinking about buying. These lids screw onto canning jars and are high on my list this month. They’d be perfect for homemade salad dressing. I’ve found that parmesan cheese lids work for Italian dressing but are downright sloppy with ranch dressing.
In April our teens will be doing dissection in biology, so I’ve got my eye on this frog dissection kit. I’m trying to decide if I should spring for extra frogs so each kid could do his own or let the kids dissect in pairs. I suspect they’d learn the most if they each did their own. But I’m not sure if the more squeamish of our teens would welcome that challenge.
Our old juicer went toes up a few weeks ago. This Hamilton Beach juicer has good reviews and is the price is right. Still thinking though. Anybody own it who can vouch for its longevity? Things age in dog-years at our house, and I really need something sturdy.
This game is on its way to our house within the next few days. It looks like a fun one to bring on vacation or to take on a camping trip this summer. I love games that lots of people can play together!
