May 10

When packing her tomorrow's lunch tonight, Lauren decided that ranch dressing was an important component. A thorough search confirmed that we were out. So she asked, "Is it possible to make ranch dressing from scratch?"

Can I tell you how much I loved hearing that question?

A recipe was located, and, wow, we had all the ingredients. So she got down the blender and proceeded to make it.

Pretty cool. And delicious, according to all the ranch-eaters in the house (I am not one of them.)

I spent a few hours this afternoon making the girl a top from thrifted garments. This style suits her a good deal better than it does me! We are both mighty pleased with the result.

And this is just a gratuitous macro lens shot. Because orchids are so pretty.

Lauren looks great in this top and so glad she is starting to cook? I like the tops you have been doing too. They will look great. Just over a year ago and we were there. Lovely to think back on.
