The Latest News

Sometimes my mind works like I have my own little news show going on in there. Today, I'm going to give you all a glimpse at the inner workings of this stay-at-home mom's mind. Hang on!

In breaking news, six burglaries occurred within a three mile radius of my home. I'm totally a chicken in the first place, so this is completely helping me lose sleep at night as I listen for footsteps in my grass and breaking glass. I found this lovely little tool: Crime Map which will alert me anytime crime or arrests happen in my area. Reassuring or disconcerting...the verdict is still out.

Moving on to the weather, the humidity is at 68% which is making my hair look like this:
It's quite lovely, and I'm very excited to have this dilemma on the day where we go meet Cloe's teacher for Curriculum Night along with all the other fellow parents. I'm sure it will be a real draw to befriend me. Oh, I'm sorry, did my hair just knock you down?

In today's beauty, I am reaping the benefits of trying an ancient eastern hair removal technique. Check it out here. I am quite impressed with the art of threading and find my newly shaped eye-brows quite nice. The process is not pain-free yet is less painful and much safer than waxing. The kiosk is located right next to the play area, so take a friend and use the buddy system to try out eyebrow threading.
My kitchen has been buzzing with the super produce find my sister got for us yesterday at the Living History Farms Farmer's Market. A bag of tomatoes for $1 = a lovely simmering pot of spaghetti sauce! I shared my favorite homemade sauce recipe here. This time it will include all fresh ingredients and spices!Step 1: Wash tomatoes. Cut out stems.Step 2: Simmer in a pot. Step 3: While simmering, go outside and read books in the tree house.Step 4: Run tomatoes through a strainer to separate skins and seeds.

Step 5: Place back in pan and simmer with onions, oregano, garlic, and salt. (It will be late and you'll probably forget to take a picture, too.)

Step 6: Freeze until ready to use.

Lastly, it is reported that 210,000 kids go to the emergency each year with playground related injuries. It's probably because their moms are trying to get them to pose like this for just
* one * good * picture * with everyone looking...

Got it!

That's all for today! Thanks for tuning in!
