Paradise ponders... Yesterday Debbie made us a new dish. She's on a roll with these things! This time it was a pasta dish, spaghetti tossed with lemon, parsley, asparagus, mushrooms, bacon, cheese, a little cream, and a little olive oil. It was great!
The snow is starting to melt all over the valley. Patches of our yard and our fields are now snow-free. Mud season is upon us shortly :)
One of our neighbor has three bright kids, 11, 13, and 14 years old, who are all very interested in math and programming. I'm going to start tutoring them next Saturday, and they seem to be pretty excited about this. If that enthusiasm is maintained, this could be an interesting experience for both of us. If not ... I'm prepared to call it off, though their mom (Maria) will be very disappointed if I do...
This morning we put together a kit, a DVD rack. Debbie just finished organizing them all onto the new shelves, and she's quite pleased with the result. I got a good laugh from one piece of that kit: a black marker pen packaged with a slip of paper explaining that it was for touching up scratches, etc. It said that the furniture industry called this “deluxing”, and that this was a deluxing pen that we should save. I figured that was some PR fluff on their part, but I Googled it – and it really is a furniture industry term!
