The four hour drive to my parents' house gave me plenty of time to doodle a mandala. It is relaxing to add layer after layer and see what comes of it. I'd like to do more of these...maybe add a little color here and there.
My mom and I also had a little fun with the watercolor pencils she received for her birthday.
So fun to see her trying something new! I think she has some untapped abilities. Check out this cool heart she painted:
I do have a few little blisses to add to my ongoing list today...
Dreamy conversations about the future.
(So looking forward to that year I'm going to live barefoot on a tropical island.)
Yesterday's road trip.
The old song playing at the rest stop, inspiring a spontaneous dance with the huz.
(I'm actually not going to share with you exactly which song it was since that would reveal what a total goof I am.)
The moment we realized we were not alone (at said rest stop) and shared a good laugh with the lady we saw giggling at us.
My new easy peasy way to prepare asparagus for a crowd.
I'll even share the recipe!
Blissfully Easy Asparagus
Place two pounds of asparagus in a low flat dish.
Toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of sea salt, and a little freshly ground pepper.
Bake in preheated 400 deg. F (205 deg. C) oven for 20 minutes.
Drizzle with a little basalmic vinegar and serve.
This is super easy to prepare ahead and pop in the oven just before time to serve. The original recipe at AllRecipes.com says this serves six but I think that's a lot of asparagus per person. I'd say it serves at least eight. Enjoy!
