Our week 31 activity was actually a couple of food creations that were spawned from a bad mood and a gnat bite. Seriously!!!
Ashley was in a funk one day and to cheer her up I decided to get creative with some coconut macaroons we had bought a few days ealier. I made this happy face plate and then presented it to her:
She thought it was pretty silly but it succeeded in making her smile and we had a nice laugh over it.
Fast forward to later that day. I decided to do a little weeding in the yard and apparently got bit by a gnat. Yes, gnats bite…who knew??? And as it turns out, my body apparently doesn’t like gnat bites. Later that evening, I ended up taking a trip to the ER since my face was starting to look like Elephant Woman (I’ll spare you the gross pic!). Don’t worry, all was fine a few days later, thanks to some prescription antihistamines and steroids.
There’s a “happy” ending to all this…When I came home from the ER that night, Tom and Ashley had taken my happy face plate idea, modified it slightly, and had this sitting out for me:
See the little boo-boo by the eye??? Yep, that’s where the gnat bit me! I got such a chuckle over this (especially the eye boo-boo) and was excited Tom and Ashley had been inspired by the happy face plate I had made for Ashley earlier. It made the whole trip to the ER a lot less annoying!
