Newish Facebook Page, Baby Spiders, and Fresh Produce

I have a newish Facebook page for Folly Blaine, if you'd like to be a part of the secret conversation where I will be telling secrets about secret-y things. Here's the link:

How come it's always when I can't do something, I desperately want to do it? I'm sitting here, babysitting the front door while I wait for UPS, thinking about how nice it would be to go for a walk. And then "nice" becomes I MUST DO THIS NOW. And I pump my fist skyward and will the UPS truck to arrive post haste or else.

I am also sitting here wondering what happened to the nest of baby spiders that were hanging around outside my kitchen window. They were cute in a can't-get-inside type way.

I sure hope they didn't get inside.

Let's talk about food. Lunch was very tasty. I made a sandwich out of toasted Bagel thins, a sliced up ball of mozzarella, two thick slices of tomato, fresh basil, a smear of red pepper hummus, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

At the grocery store I also bought another cantaloupe and a quarter of a pound of thinly sliced prosciutto. I plan to cut the melon into chunks (appetizing sounding!)and wrap them in prosciutto since that was the appetizer I never got to eat in Rome.

How pretentious is that, right?

Well, if you want to think judge-y thoughts about me, allow me to help: why don't you start with all the hypothetical baby spiders in my kitchen?

Decent folk don't go around cavorting with arachnids. Not if they know what's good for 'em.

Oh man! I'm an idiot! I've already eaten 2 of the 3 cantaloupes I bought and didn't even think to buy some prosciutto! I had that anywhere it was offered when I was in Italy. I guess I'm stopping at the store on the way home.

Lily, I would not say you are an idiot!

I would say "idiota" because that is Italian for idiot. ;)
