tonight, alex left penny & me alone in the apartment to go to friend's surprise party. fellas, when you leave your ladies alone, who knows what sort of shenanigans they can get up to? what sort of SPINACH BASED shenanigans?
when he left, penny started a pretty typical dinner, baby carrot in one hand, and no warning of what was to come; except perhaps the fact that she's not wearing a shirt....
despite appearances, she ate quite a bit of spinach.
after penny went to sleep, i got up to solo shenanigans. i have, for a very long time, HATED the lampshades that came with the lamps in our living room. since the lamps and the accompanying shades came with the living room, and we paid not a penny for them, i felt bad complaining, and when i researched replacement shades i found out that holy heck, they are expensive!
a couple of weekends ago we stopped at my new favorite store in the slope - a supply store for absolutely every single craft you can think of, and several more that i can't yet identify BUT WILL. i bought a yard of fabric and some elastic, and my lamp went from this:
you didn't think i was going to end with a lamp photo, did you? nuh uh. proof that penny got cleaned up all nice and pretty:
