Brainiac Nerd vs. Fashion Geek


It’s official.

The difference between my husband and me is described in the title of this blog.

We’re sitting here watching an episode of Nova on Public Television, which is explaining how Aristotle thought that the weight of an item determined how fast the item will fall.

As we watch the feather and the bowling ball are dropped at the same time with, of course, the ball hitting the ground far before the feather, I blurt out…

‘I love his green turquoise ring!’

I started to laugh at myself as Tim is intensely watching this show…

And I’m commenting on the man’s jewelry.

I am Penny to his Leonard.

Patty to his Tim.

And I like it that way.

Thank God he does too!

Have a good night!

PS…Aristotle was wrong.  Galileo’s theory of gravity is that things fall at the same rate if you take air resistance away…things fall relative to the square of the time.  Tim’s words…not mine.  Surprised?  I didn’t think so…LOL

Do Yew Know Responsabiwity?


Our favorite two little girls came over for a visit today.

Their Mom and Dad were busy running the Wolf Track Classic Dogsled Race here in Ely.  It’s a mere 60 miles which I’m sure there dogs thought was a walk in the park.

It’s amazing to watch these dogs and their excitement as they pull up to the starting line.

Seriously.

Those dogs are hopping, jumping, barking, and croaking!  (OK, hahaha, I had to throw the croaking in there because one of their dogs is named Frog and he literally sounds like one!)  Here’s the YouTube video link: Read more

Sicilian Meatloaf


See this sad little piece of meatloaf?

I really did plan on taking a picture of the process and the final product.

However…

I forgot during the process.

And my family devoured it before I could get a picture of it fresh from the oven.

It really was fantastic…

Much better than this little end piece looks.

If the way to your families heart is through their stomachs, they LOVE me and this meatloaf!

Here’s the recipe… Read more

My…Best…Project…Ever!!!

The afghan covered furniture pieces were fantastic!  I knew I had to try it! Read more
