A List: Random Thoughts In My Head

24 Feb

 

Just a few random thoughts for tonight … I’m in a list kinda mood.

  • Spaghetti is the ultimate comfort food. That, with some bread and wine, made my night.
  • Laundry is the bain of my existence.
  • I’m crossing all my fingers {and toes} that the spring weather gets here really soon .. I’m running out of cute, warm, work clothes.
  • Also crossing my fingers and toes that this market turns around soon … I’m quickly getting tired “Recession Pedicures” {aka: the ones I give myself}
  • Our dog really likes it when I add ice to his water bowl.
  • My keyboard keeps on missing letters … I think it needs it’s batteries changed.
  • Tomorrow, I’m making Pho.
  • This weekend, I’m attempting jambalaya for the first time.
  • As a child, my siblings and I used to push our toyboxes together to for a “stage” for our ritual Sunday morning performances. We’d dance and sing and cook breakfast. Our poor parents. {ha ha} Butterscotch and Blueberry pancakes come to mind. {oh, the memories}

 

Aren’t lists wonderful? I’ve got enough of them in my life right now that I though another one would be fitting. Night Ya’ll!

Grocery Pick-Up … Yes, Please!

10 Feb

 

Well, hello! I miss you blog. Honestly, it’s been days since I have cooked a meal. Tonight it’s nearly 12:30 and I just sat down to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I’m craving some really good, belly filling, heart warming food. I’m going to have to break down tomorrow and schedule time to cook a dinner… my body needs something that isn’t from a fast food line, a jar, or plastic container.

 

I also found the most amazing amenity today… my grocery store will now allow you to order your groceries online, they will “shop them,” and will have them patiently waiting in a cooler for your arrival at the pick-up lane. Now, I’m not THAT busy that I can’t grocery shop. In fact, I love to grocery shop. But… just imagine the possibilities. And… you will never EVER believe how much this little service costs….

 

Come on, try to guess… work with me here. How much would you pay for a service like that?

 

Let me tell you, I thought I was reading it wrong… $4.95 .. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I would pay $4.95 just to not have to park my car near the others and risk door-dings! $4.95 … I’m all over $4.95! And, the first time is FREE… FREE… FREE. You don’t have to tell me twice.

 

Tonight … in my exhausted stooper … I’m ordering groceries online! Wahoo.. I’ll let you know how this turns out! Night Ya’ll {And, I promise .. a dinner of some sort tomorrow!}

Regurgitation, Yarn, and Kitchen Gadgets: Life

30 Dec

 

Wow, It’s only been one day off and I feel like I’ve cheated on my blogging friends. I’ve been so busy with life the last two days that I haven’t had time to sit at a computer! {Shocker} I had the first test of the regurgitation of my new found knowledge, and did wonderfully. I have one more part before I’ve met my goal. It feels good to set goals and accomplish them! A long time has passed since I graduated college and I was hesitant about how this whole “expanding my brain” thing would work out .. I guess I’ve still got it in me afterall. And, its good to know you can learn something new every day!

 

In the mad dash of the last two days, I haven’t had much time to work on my blanket. Although, I was able to stop by the craft store and buy them completely out of the brand/color yarn I’m working with. {and it was on sale} Oh, and my lovely brother gave me the most fabulous idea … crocheted laptop sleeves! I’m envisioning making a ‘pillow case’ and then putting a fabric liner and zipper inside to give a little added protection to the sleeve. {I’m sure it will not be that easy, but a girl can dream} My brother already asked for the first sample… we’ll see! Just think of all the possibilities of color and style! Mmmmm. Fun!

 

Guess who came to my house today!?

My new batch of Netflix came in the mail today {love them} and I’m so excited to sit down and watch! I have the first three disks of the Julia Child and Jacquese Pepin PBS series: Cooking at Home. I’m such a nerd, but I really am looking forward to watching and learning some new recipes! {And, of course ‘oohing’ and ‘aweing’ at the fun kitchen gadgets that I will want to run out and purchase!} I’ll have to keep you all posted on that!

 

Well, I believe it’s time to settle down with a nice glass of wine, the dog, and the boyfriend, and just unwind. It’s been a crazy two days..  Night Ya’ll!
