Boots, Reese's and a Good Deed

So far I have not had any cohesive thoughts on what I want to blog about, I just have some recent pictures to post.  So basically I am just making this up as I go.

We have been using the baby k'tan carrier a lot lately.  Scarlet enjoys being able to look around and see what I am doing.  A friend of Ken's said she looks like a ninja when she is in the sling facing out.  I love the coat and boots she is wearing in this picture.

Getting ready to go outside, I think just to get the mail real quick...
A better look at these adorable boots and a matching hat.  Even the onesie matched too.  :)
She has another pair of boots that I like except they are both left shoes!!  I kid you not, they really are.  So funny.

Two left feet.
So Ken loves Reese's candy.  He claims to be the biggest fan. He recently acquired a bright orange sweatshirt that has the Reese's logo embroidered on it.  He especially loves the Easter Egg edition.  He says they are the best and they are better than any of the other holiday editions (i.e. better than the Christmas trees.)  I've asked him why, something to do with the peanut butter to chocolate ratio... Anyway, I suppose Scarlet will probably love them someday too.

I sent this picture to Ken with the caption "Hey, where did all the Reese's go?"
I have been trying to get out and go walking or running at least a couple of times a week.  It has been pretty nice here lately so I have really enjoyed it. Scarlet usually likes it too. My jogging stroller is the one baby item that I really splurged on.  It is a BOB revolution.  I bought it used but it still wasn't cheap.  I LOVE the stroller. It is so smooth and easy to maneuver.  That may be, at least in part, why she so frequently falls asleep.

The other day while we were out on a walk I could see from a distance that a lady was struggling to close her large backyard fence (she was on the sidewalk trying to close it from the outside.)  As I neared her she was still struggling so I decided to stop to see if I could be of assistance.  At first she said oh no, no, no, it's ok, but she was obviously still struggling so I stopped to investigate the problem anyway.  One side of the fence was lower than the other so the two holes that had to line up for the lock to go through were way off.  I was able to lift the fence from the bottom (even got my hands dirty) while she put the lock through the holes.  She thanked me profusely and then as I was leaving she stopped me and said she wanted to give me something.  She then went to her car (which was parked there on the street at the back of her house) and pulled out three eggs.  They were from her own chickens!  My favorite part was when she said, "Good eggs, organic you know." (Oh, p.s she was Russian.)

My organic eggs.
I haven't tasted them yet but I am sure they will be delicious!  They are, after all, organic.  :)

I really don't know what she was trying to do but I think I may have a little houdini on my hands trying to get out of her clothes.

A little scandalous, I know.
And just for some more funnies...
Ever had a banana that wouldn't peel?
Did you know that spaghetti can burn if you don't shove it down into the water right away?
