The Bud is fine, (fine, fine)

The Bud is fine,
The doggone Bud is fine

(sung to the tune of The Girl is Mine).

He has been mostly back to normal this week - a little whinier here and there, but overall he has been his happy-go-lucky self.

I left a folded duvet out on the floor of the den the other day, and it has become the Bud's new favorite toy. He will do a forward "Nestea Plunge" and roll all over. He also likes to hide under a layer and surprise us. I can't bring myself to put it away yet.
Words are spilling out all over the place these days too: pizza, buckle, book, bunny, bagel... we are now into the stage of having to watch what we say and spelling out words instead of saying them. Ah, parenthood.

Yesterday we went for a bike ride - during the gorgeous, morning half of the day, not the crazy, thunderstorm half. We have recumbent bikes, and there are many recumbent bikers in our area these days. I don't know about other cities, but around here there is an unwritten rule: if you pass another "bent" rider, you must acknowledge them with a little wave, and possibly also a smile-nod. It's like being in a special club, and with that gesture you are saying, "I totally understand your choice to ride a "bent" and not a "wedgie".

Last night - during the crazy, thunderstorm half of the day - I made a batch of Apricot Jalapeño Jelly. A friend gave me some for Christmas, and I finally asked her for the recipe. It is tangy, spicy and sweet all at the same time.

The new project Spectrum colors are Black, Red and Metallics - this fits with red, right? Well the lids are gold anyhow.
