Adoption Update: Our agency didn’t have any referrals this week, it has been since the week of 7/11/08 since the last set of referrals and probably none for the next couple of weeks.
Running and Push-Up Updates: Same as last week.
Gardening: I still have a ton of basil and didn’t want to dry it all to preserve. A friend recently had asked me if I was going to make pesto with all that basil, I had never eaten (to the best of my recollection), let alone made it. I found out it was pretty easy to make and I could freeze it for future use. I tried this recipe and this recipe. I made my pesto, froze most of it and then made myself this pasta:
It was pretty yummy! I didn’t use cherry tomatoes because I had some full size ones from the garden to use and I forgot the peas, I don’t think they would have made a difference though.
I went to walk out the front door yesterday and about walked into a spiderweb that covered the top half of my door with a big fat spider sitting in the middle. I had just been through the night before and there was no spider, but we did have a ton of bugs which were attracted to the porch light, so the spider was just being smart as to where to build her web, of course it ended up being a fatal choice.
She was pretty ugly and gave me quite a fright!
