This morning we went to 7:30 mass and afterward came home and had a nice breakfast, then just kind of hung around until after lunch when we went to an art opening at Vienna. Anja wore the cutest dress! She looked very adorable, but my question is, how on earth did we get a blue-eyed, red-haired baby?!?
When Anja was tired of being at Vienna we came home, but on our way we took a little drive around downtown looking at all the old houses and structures that we admire. Eventually we got hungry for dinner and decided to try that Yats place over on the Levee. It wasn't raining very much, so we walked over with Anja inside Martin's raincoat. It was a nice walk! The dinner was fine... we're glad we tried it, anyway because we were curious. But it's no Cajun Connection, that's for sure! Once Anja grows out of her milk allergy/is done breastfeeding, I'm definitely going to make some crawfish etoufee. I miss it! I will make it for dinner and eat it with a vanilla chai. Aaaahhh....
Karenin might be getting slightly better about the potty thing, but she's not trained yet. She went 24 hours without an accident the other day, then broke the goodness streak. Later yesterday evening she had a little case of bad poops and left a trail through the dining room and living room. Yucky. This potty thing is one way in which Baxter was a WAAAY better dog than Karenin... with Baxter, no matter how long he had to hold it, he absolutely would not go in the house. He was kind of a saint that way.
These next couple of weeks are going to be pretty busy. The mother of a girl I went to highschool with died this weekend and I'm part of a quartet who is singing "Blessing" at the funeral. The problem is, none of us has the music to it anymore, so we're trying to track it down before we get together to practice on Tuesday evening. Six years is a long time to have not sung something together!
Hooray! Tara just came over to meet Karenin! I haven't seen her in forever, I was starting to go through Tara withdrawal. Tomorrow is rosary group--I hope I get back in time from taking Martino to work!
