life list: bask in the amazingness of my domesticity

Goals, you'd better take cover. I'm on a fucking role. I'm knocking shit off my life list and my 28 goals for my 28th year left and right.


And this whole anti-spending kick...I'm kicking its ass and taking its name. I've been a goddess of domesticity and spend all of my time doing stuff around the house or going to the gym (more time at home than at the gym because I'm not psychotic, just poor).


My new computer has a memory card slot, so I'm finally able to share with you the fruits of my labor (let's just say that even though I've been cleaning, the connector for the camera is still missing). Anyway, there are a ton of pics I've been wanting to share with you, but have not been able...until now (like how the ellipses keep popping up? just wait, there's more).


Here is something ooey and gooey and delicious that I whipped up using fresh, homegrown rhubarb from my parents' place and farmers' market strawberries.




So now I can cross this off my life list. See that lattice crust? I did that...on my first ever pie from scratch. And it tasted delicious. I could hardly believe it. But then again, why wouldn't I believe it. I was wearing an apron...isn't that the prerequisite for superb baking?





Yes, it is retro...yes it is fabulous. No, I didn't color coordinate the tank top - God did. He was very excited about the pie, I guess.


There is more to come tomorrow.

Love the apron, Trish! =) How's the thes-isn't coming along? I wonder if I'll finish my dissertation before you finish it! Heehee, hahaha.

Honey! Just got caught up with the latest and greatest in Trishtown. I miss you!!! Let's get caught up. We make our way through Madtown every now and then en route to Milwaukee, so maybe we can work something out. At any rate, call or email me to get this reunion started. I'm at:

I read your post about your spending fast. I guess, then, I won't mention my idea for a chick trip out to VA to visit Sasha (oh, did I write that out loud???) :)

Hugs!
