A few updates:
+Getting a head cold in the summer is just not right.
+Getting a head cold in the summer at the same time as my two children and husband means that I get to be everyone's favorite sneezing nurse!! Is this because I caught the cold last, and, therefore, am in a sort of "Finders, Keepers; Losers, Weepers" situation? No. No it's not. But it would be a little more fair if that were the case. I might stop thinking pathetic thoughts about how much I want someone to tuck me in and bring me soup, because at least then I would have lost fair and square!
+I'm whiney when I'm sick.
+I am becoming afraid of my garden. Especially my squash plants. Every time I reach into one to pull out a scary-big zucchini I have the distinct feeling that the plant could pull me in and gobble me up if it wanted to.
+Also, I watch Little Shop of Horrors when I am sick.
+I made this last night with said home grown zucchini and it was delicious with a poached egg on top.
+I have also made zucchini chocolate chip cookies and brownies in the last week.
+Before I caught this cold I bought some Swiss chard and beets at the Farmer's Market- two things I have never-before cooked. Am hoping to make this soup with the chard tomorrow. Tonight I am roasting the beets and serving them on top of a salad made from the beet greens.
+I am almost more afraid of cooked beets than I am of my squash plants.
+A good friend lent her Veggie Tales collection to Avery, and she is in love! I have never seen these things before, but they are pretty clever.
+They also feed my recently-founded fear of plants and vegetables.
I should probably go back to bed now.
