Cell Phone Pic

How do you get your kids to practice?


This is our little pianist:

Pogi enjoyed Dom’s talented playing and singing.

This was how we spent our Sunday evening. Then Nathan made some pasta that included chard grown in our garden. Dom picked out and ate all of his kalamata olives and was bummed we didn’t have anymore to give him when those were gone. Add those to the next shopping list.

Our goal is that by this time next year, Dom will have learned to sing and play happy birthday for aunt Mern, Grumma, Teddy, Marissa, and other August birthdays.

Summer Night

It’s just after 8:00 and Dom just went down for the night (or at least most of the night). Nathan’s at the kitchen table working on finals.

We had honey glazed salmon and brussel sprouts for dinner. Dom even tried several bites of the fish. He washed it down with apple/squash puree.

Can somebody explain to me what it is about summer nights that feel…nostalgic?

Storms = Beautiful Sunsets


I took a different route home from work yesterday evening. Why? In part because Nathan had parent teacher conferences so he wouldn’t be home yet, why should I be in a hurry? And also, so that I could take a picture of the sunset with my cell phone. It’s times like these when I wish I had the fancy camera to really capture the beauty, but for a cell phone pic, it’s okay.

Also, sunsets after storms in Salt Lake are another thing that makes me happy, especially after cold, brisk October storms!

Did you see the sunset yesterday, too?

Last Contest’s Winner: Kaakun, again. Yippee. Woop-i-dee-doo on another win. Still working on setting up the webcam so you can “be there” for the ceremony. Just have to go down to the church office building…

Last Contest’s Winner: Me. Nobody liked my sock drawer, apparently, so I posted my own caption. Congratulations, Larrie. Why thank you very much. One day, I knew I could do it. I knew you could, too. Go me!

Last Contest’s Winner: Hooray, Mom! I avoid the big pile of stuff when I eat Cheesecake Factory cheesecake as well, since they must use an entire can of whip cream for each slice. Sadly that day, we left some of our cheesecake uneaten because we filled our stomachs with the delicious, sweet corn cake appetizer.
