Pink Sock Monkey


Sundays are Great!

Posted on Sunday, January 18, 2009

Pink Monkey had a very stay-at-home, not-doing-anything-really-exciting, but still a great day today.  Her partner in monkey crime made breakfast while she dabbled on the great World Wide Web looking up chili recipes.  One of Mr. Obama’s favorite food is chili so Monkey wants to make chili to celebrate when he gets to be the president in the big white house in the city of Washington D.C.! Yay Mr. Obama!  She’s going to make cornbread too.

While Monkey cut and pasted many chili recipes, she didn’t realize that her partner in monkey crime was making such a delectable breakfast.

Eggs Benedict a la James

 

Poached eggs with hollandaise on a cracker pancake with prosciutto.  And that’s a nice hunk-a manchego cheese with creamy olives on top.  Monkey was very happy to eat this.  She’s lucky to have such a great breakfast-maker as her monkey crime partner.  This got her very distracted from Mr. Obama-celebrating chili.  

Then Monkey practiced her cello.

Monkey still doesn’t play her cello very well, but she’s very proud of it.  His name is Jeremy.  His full name is Jeremy the Cello.

 

Me and my cello.  His name is Jeremy the Cello.

Dinnertime came so soon.  They had leftover beef burgundy that Monkey made in the crockpot.  It was the first time she made food in the crockpot.  It was more runny than she wanted but it still tasted yummy.  

She also made green beans.  She used the microwave.  She loves using the microwave.  If the microwave wasn’t filled with radiation, Monkey would live there all the time.

After dinner they plan to finish watching The Money Pit with Tom Hanks and Shelly Long.  Monkey loves that movie.  Sometimes she doesn’t even need to see it, she just thinks about a scene and she laughs.

Today Monkey found herself enraptured by the glorious World Wide Web.  Monkey wants to be a part of it too!

So much to explore and she doesn’t even have to leave her home.  Take that agoraphobia!
