Good times, good eats, and a really large plant

Sam's buddy Owen had his birthday party on Saturday, and his mom emailed this picture over. There was another kid in the picture that I didn't know, so I cropped him out. No only because I didn't know him, but he wasn't looking at the camera either. Anyway, it's a cute picture. Thanks for sending it over, Mel!

The next evening Otto made dinner. Lamb roast stuffed with feta, prosciutto, and spinach served with asparagus...

with a homemade Saskatoon pie for dessert. It was all delicious. And this was just an average Sunday; I can't wait to see what he makes me for my birthday! Well, it was Palm Sunday, but I don't think he was factoring that into the menu planning.

Apparently string cheese offers an endless amount of comedic possibilities. I turned around today to see this, with an exclamation of, "I am Master Shifu!" (From Kung Fu Panda.) Cracked me up!

Here is the REAL Master Shifu for those who haven't seen the movie. The resemblance is uncanny. (Rats! The image doesn't seem to be showing up on the blog. You can see it here if you can't see this picture.)

And with the LOVELY weather we've had the past few days, I was inspired to buy some plants. Indoor, as it's still too cold to plant anything outside yet. One fits quite nicely where I had envisioned it going on the stair landing. I had intended the other, larger one to go behind our brown leather chair in the office, but it was too big. Anyone sitting in the chair would have palm leaves hanging over their face. It didn't look quite so big in the store. But I've bought the silly thing and replanted it in a pot already, so I need to find a spot. Does this look too odd?

That corner was awfully bare before. It was met with a "Whoa!" when Otto went upstairs after coming home from work this evening.

This is my side of the bed. I figure I'll give it a few days and see how many times I get poked in the eye by the pointy leaf tips while getting up, half asleep.
