A poem.

I eat my peas with honey,
I've done it all my life,
It may taste kind of funny,
but it keeps them on the knife...

I remember reading that poem when I was a kid. How could you forget it? I don't remember where I read it but It always stuck with me!

We did our weekly Trader Joe's trek. To simplify and not make our selves nutty, I ran in and Robert hung in the car with kids, toys and music. I love Trader Joe's, but seriously, I think we are becoming their guinea pigs. Lightly salted, crunch, fried green beans? Yeck! Not my thing. And just to keep us on our toes, the car battery died. So we chatted up the gal parked next to us in the (dare I say it?) cool Ford Escape Hybrid. It was the third we'd seen in an hour. Luckily the tow truck guy "Doc-W" as it said on his coverall got to us quick and sent us on our way. Thanks Doc!

Clementine would like the green beans...

When we got home "Nim's Island" was waiting for us, a gift from Grandpa! A GREAT MOVIE! Fun for the whole family! I just loved every minute!

Look at the smile on that dog's face - see the upturned corners of the mouth, the raised eyebrows!
