Homemade Pesto

Homemade pesto is so easy to make. All you need to do is throw a bunch of ingredients into a food processor. What really amazes me is that when you’re finished, the house smells like pesto, as if you had been cooking it over the stove.

Over the unusually warm summer, our basil plants really blossomed. We had more fresh herbs than we needed for garnish, so we made pesto with all the excess basil. (more…)

White Hairs

Mr. P used to always be mistaken for being much younger, but that’s almost completely stopped in the last few years (unless you count yesterday when a salesman asked him if his parents were home). I’m frequently finding white hairs on his scalp, at least one a day, sometimes more.

I know it’s irrational, but they freak me out. It makes me feel like the white hairs are being caused by stress from our marriage, even though I know it is more likely a genetic thing. Does anyone else respond this way to white hairs?

Sleeping Habits

It never ceases to amaze me just how quickly Mr. P can fall asleep. It takes me a while to shut off my brain, relax, and go to sleep, but for Mr. P it’s almost instantaneous. He reminds me of Garfield. He’ll tell me he’s tired and before that sentence is even over, he’s full out snoring. Oh yeah, that “Z” at the end should be a really loud snoring sound. (more…)

Guest in the Kitchen

Does this happen to you? Despite having moved in 8 months ago, Mr. P still maneuvers around the kitchen like it’s his first time. I really don’t even know how he makes himself a meal in there when I’m not around. He doesn’t seem to know where any of the utensils are, he never puts cleaned tableware away, etc. Happy Thursday everyone!

Jacket Envy

Is there a term for the slight jealousy/hurt feelings one experiences when their own parents give attention to their significant other? Mr. P developed a little bit of that recently when he found out his mom had bought me a nice raincoat. He spent the rest of the week touching it, complimenting it, and attempting to try it on. Silly silly. Happy Thursday everyone!
