this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

Dear Mom,

i needed a change and cut my hair:

jon requested an italian sausage and spinach pie, so i didn't cheat and made my own homemade crust:

for the filling i made my own sausage, and our enormous bag of spinach from costco came in handy.  it also had cheeses in it:

...the bottom crust crisping up first:

...and the dinner pie all baked:

for fourth of july, the dogs relaxed with their favorite people:

piper & tim:

...we relaxed in the air conditioning, tim made us a gourmet meal, and we watched funny movies.  i was too tired to stay awake for the fireworks, but i managed to see flashes through the curtains... or, what i thought were fireworks... but the next day we read in the news that a young boy was hit by a car while riding his bike right at the intersection of our building... so the flashing lights were firetrucks, etc.  

i had my glucose test today at my appointment, so we'll see if i'm sugar-sensitive.  i also got to have my vitamin-d levels tested.  we'll see how minnesotan my blood is.

time for a nap!!!
