Happened to see this spontaneous face on one of our end tables and thought it was cute.
Occasionally a potato goes rogue and falls out of the potato bin and rolls around to some hiding spot in the pantry, where it becomes the home of a potato monster. Observe this fine specimen, with green flyaway hair, arms stretched skyward as if in anger or aggression, protuberant ocular organs, radial nipple clusters (a sign of fecundity), and an extreme outie of a belly button. If his upstretched arms weren’t clue enough, you can tell that he’s angry by the purplish blush apparent on his left cheek. He is a carbuncled fellow in general (who wouldn’t be angry?), and should his legs finish forming so that he can separate himself from the spud, he’ll be a fearsome character indeed.
This week, we had new flooring put in our bathrooms and kitchen. For the kitchen, we chose a gray tile that turns out to have a lot of sandy highlights. While the sandy color wasn’t exactly what we had bargained for, it actually turns out to complement very well our light-colored cabinets and some of the highlights in our mottled, dark countertops.
