Jenni’s aunt Kathy gave us a $50 paper gift certificate for a food service that will cook and deliver a meal. It’s a very thoughtful gift for new parents since we spend so much time feeding, changing, entertaining, and enjoying Kadence that some of the routine chores, like cooking and cleaning, get neglected.
However, the gift certificate’s design looked a bit… how shall I say… unprofessional and lacking in design. At the risk of sounding like a snob, I would offer the suggestion to refrain from using 9 different font styles on one page.
Jenni and I visited their web site to see their menu. I chuckled listening to Jenni critique their web site design and layout.
Then the little voice inside my head reminded me that everyone has different talents and to not judge others based on their weakness. I have my own flaws too. And I’ve thought that instead of criticizing for someone’s weakness, I should lend a hand to help.
So I joked with Jenni that perhaps I could contact them and ask them if I could redesign their web site. And they could pay us with food. Then I could work from home and we wouldn’t have to cook. Sounds like a good idea eh?
Jenni’s cousin Kari and two kids, Piper and Owen, visited with Kari’s mom, Kathy for the morning and we were able to do an impromptu photo session with her kids. See photos from the session »
I walked up to Jennilyn this morning for a hug and told her that I was looking forward to going to Fred Meyer with her and Kadence today.
“Visiting an old haunt?” She replied.
“Visiting an old honk?” I inquired.
Haunt? I suppose we’re getting close to Halloween, but I had never heard the expression ‘old haunt’ before. A quick search on dictionary.com revealed the definition Jenni referred to, number nine: Often, haunts. a place frequently visited: to return to one’s old haunts.
In looking back, the one-stop shopping Fred Meyer has been one of our old haunts. When Jenni and I courted, I would stop by the Fred Meyer in Battle Ground to pick up flowers, sweets, or a movie. On some occasions when Jenni had cabin fever, we’d make a date out of going to Fred Meyer.
After we married, one of our favorite date activities has been a one-two combo of Fred Meyer for Soy Delicious ice cream then Hollywood Videos for a movie.
So, yeah, visiting an old haunt. Learned something today.
