Better butter bontainer?

I really wish I would have taken a ‘before’ picture. Imagine this butter dish with butter all around the bottom edge. (We leave the butter out all the time so it’s nice and soft and toast-ready.) It’s not its fault – you cut off too much butter, so then you have to ‘wipe’ it back onto the dish and it gets on the lid when you replace it. After a while the whole thing gets a little gross, and a lot dangerous. Darn slippery glass lid….

Well, Amy over at Angry Chicken decided to use a cute little Weck jar to hold half a stick of butter, and that seemed so smart. I do not have a Weck jar, but I do have an irreverence for directionality.

Let’s give this a try. The ‘lid’ isn’t exactly tight-fitting, but until the cats realize that we keep the butter on top of the microwave, I think we’ll be fine.

All. Day.

Sooooo…. we all know that I am not as good at cleaning house as Lloyd, right? Now, granted, I do a fair amount of the day-to-day drudgery keeping things running that goes unseen: sweeping the basement steps once every three months whether they need it or not; weekly laundry; …. um, it seems like there […]

Perfect.

Lloyd and I don’t do anything for birthdays, as evidenced by the leftover Chinese food in our guts right now. However, Thursday night I took a sneaky photo of Wally with the thought that I would send it to Lloyd in the morning. But then…. Friday morning I sent a text message to the people […]

Once again, blowing their little minds

We have a half-hearted mural in the hallway at school. We didn’t spend much time on it and it is pretty bereft of people and animals, but I finall got around to putting ‘Jesus’ in the manger. It’s an LED light bulb taped to a button battery. That’s not blasphemous, right? By the way, Happy […]

Happy Birthday to me!

Three times fifteen, nine times five – That’s how many orbits I’ve Circled ’round our sun (called Sol). Forty-five! I’m gettin’ ol’. Woo-hoo! And how am I going to celebrate? With a doctor’s appointment! Yep, enough stuff is creaky inside that I’ve decided to give my new insurance plan a test drive and get it […]
