Based on Melanie's love for my high-heeled, knee-high boots, she decided to dress up this way.
She and Braaten figure since I don't wear those boots enough, that they have an obligation, a duty, to wear them for me.
Oh no, this doesn't look so sweet!
Today Austin and I made homemade salsa together. And, boy, was it good! I was inspired by Mama M. at "Three Crooked Halos" to make it after she posted about it with the recipe included. Thanks Mama M!
He did a fine job helping me.
Doesn't that look so yummy? Fresh cilantro would have made it even better. I have had a difficult time finding it here. I'm not sure why. I guess there's not a whole lot of eating Mexican in these parts. Curries are something they eat a lot of in England, though, which is a whole 'nother cuisine. If you're looking for curry powder, well, you'll definitely find that. I actually fancy a mild Korma since living here.
Please pass the salsa.
After dinner, our 3 youngest children went off to their Monday night activity at church called Cru Club. Cru stands for Crusaders.
Since Braaten and Austin are the only ones home with Shawn and I, we decided to do something special with each one. Shawn and Braaten took Fletch for a nice, leisurely walk and then played Uno. Austin and I took a bike ride and caught this sunset.
He was a true gentleman, and at my request, biked home to get the camera for me. When he got there we took a few pictures of each other. I wish someone was nearby to take a picture of us together.
On our way back home, Austin said, "I love you, Mom. You're beautiful."
I knew right then that spending that one-on-one time together meant the world to him. And you know what, I felt the exact same way.
I love you, Austin!

If anyone only left one comment (letting me know that you are now or have been following me plus a general comment), please leave a second comment. I originally only wanted this in one comment, but I noticed a couple of people left two separate ones. That's OK with me. I just want anyone that did not do that to go ahead and leave a 2nd comment. I'm sorry about the confusion.
