Three Things About Today

1. I won a Scribbit giveaway! Michelle Mitchell writes about motherhood in Alaska at Scribbit and often hosts giveaways. Last week's was for a set of personalized cards from karen cole PAPER, a shop with some totally adorable graphics for notecards, announcements, or invitations. It took me a few turns at browsing the site before I settled on a set of notecards with this cute, pink & green dress graphic.

2. It snowed. About two inches landed, looked pretty for a while, and then turned to slush. The weird thing is that it's been in the 40's all day - chilly but not really cold enough to snow. I popped up the local school closing advisory sites and waited for a call but the district surprised me and kept the kids all day, in spite of the snow.

3. I am historically good at growing mold. Chris was impressed early on by my vast display of colors and textures but it's been my ability to grow mold on things he didn't know would mold that has kept his attention all these years. I fondly remember the first time he saw mold on coffee...the look of horror on my own face when I found some on chocolate...and - Mom - remember the vibrant greens and blues from that bologna sandwich from my desk in third grade? This morning, we discovered I've outdone myself in this arena yet again - I grew a very pretty white mold on hard-boiled eggs. Kind of looks like snow, doesn't it?

They're lovely! (maybe a tiny crack in one?) I do remember that bologna sandwich!

Oh excellent choice--love the green dress graphic.

I just realized I kind of messed up--I really should have linked to you in the announcement this morning, I guess I just was following old habit. So sorry!

Ooh, another thing we have in common! I believe there are several mold experiments going on in my fridge right now, since my husband failed to clean it out and toss the leftovers before he left to join us in Texas...a week and a half ago. And some of those things had been in the fridge for a few days when I left...two and a half weeks ago.

Congrats on winning the giveaway!

I didn't know you could grow mold on hard boiled eggs!

Spice Girl said...

Not impressed with the mold. Now when you start growing mushrooms (I can claim that), THEN I'll be impressed! :)

Chaotic Joy said...

Oh Spice Girl's probably growing mushrooms on purpose. Like shitakes or something to put in Will's lunchbox. :)

You know that note card you picked is called "Hey Baby" and also has matching Baby shower invites. Are you trying to tell us something?

Sister K said...
