Analise is drawing A LOT. She is creating more intricate pictures, each with its own story, and she is getting quite good at it. While this picture is somewhat simplistic in comparison to what she has been drawing, it was my favorite of the week. Meet Lisi's lion. According to her, "It is a lion because it has eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Without those, it would be a sun."Sometimes when Markus gets home, the kids will request that he make them something. This simple request for a rocket turned into quite a project - he went the extra mile and created a launchpad and a hangar that he let Analise decorate.
Shelley. He thinks it is A-OK.
We frequent two grocery stores each week, Trader Joe's and Nob Hill (with a Costco run every three weeks or so). Every now and then we will hit up Safeway too, but only if they have a good sale. Some of you had heard my position on Safeway - for those of you who haven't, I will spare you my rant, but I will say this - Nob Hill (Raley's or Bel Air for some of you) is by far the superior store. They always have full shelves, great service (Bay Avenue location), beautiful, delicious, fabulous produce, and great prices (typically much lower than Safeway-for better quality food). They also have great E-Coupons. Last week I got a free 3-lb. bag of Gala apples. This week I got a free loaf of bread. It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to check out their online coupons each week. You can click here to get check what's available this week. If only I had seen this one before I went shopping today.
