I’m excited about all kinds of things these days!
1) I started a new job this week. I big puffy heart love it and the best part is that I get to work from home 3-4 days a week. We’re working out the logistics of desks (I’ve temporarily booted Matt out of the office entirely but that isn’t a good longterm solution) and will be doing a bit of an office revamp soon. YAY!
2) My friend fell in love with this photo that I took of her daughter. I offered to get a nice print of it for her to hang and on a whim I suggested doing a mini-photo shoot with the two of them this weekend. It’s a chance for me to practice with my camera more and hopefully get some great photos for her. Seriously can’t wait! Any last-minute photo tips would be much appreciated!
3) We’re making Pho* stock this weekend! A couple of weeks ago I proclaimed to the Facebook world that Matt and I were making Pho. My love of Pho is well know and I even gave it up for lent last year (hardest thing ever!). I was so excited and it ended up being a big fat Pho fail. The stock recipe that we used was a “cheat” or “faux pho” and it was disappointing, but it looked pretty. Shame on me for taking shortcuts. We’re making Pho stock the right way this weekend (i.e. the 3 hr way) and we’ll have some Pho for dinner next week. WOOT!
What is making you excited these days?
*Pho (pronounced fa) is aVietnamese rice noodle soup. It has a complex (and yummy) clear beef broth and is usually served with thin slices of meat although I prefer fried tofu and vegetables in my Pho.
