It has been a crazy couple of weeks at this end. Will post about the reason later. In the meanwhile, I never even noticed the pile of asparagus sitting by itself in the fridge. By the time I noticed, it was a mere step away from becoming a pile of twigs. Since I don't like throwing things away (even piles of twigs) and seeing that my soup-a-week resolution had been quietly forgotten, I turned my woody pile of asparagus into soup. The mother and the Boy approved and for once they both agreed on something.
We are off to Boston tomorrow to meet the Gherkin's grand uncles and uncles. We will be back on Monday. And before we forget, the Gherkin is now capable of biped locomotion, though all her current attempts remind us of drunk zombies.
