yesterday after open lab for hardware class, i was gonna get off the bus early and go to taco bell. i had to wade through snow like knee deep that was melting and slushy and half the cars threw up this wet dirty spray on me. then they got my order wrong, but i was in such a hurry i didn't have time to ask for it corrected. then i had to cross the road to get to the bus stop, but there was no stop on that side of the street, so i had to walk/run through more knee deep snow and slush for like ever to find a stop in time. when i finally got on the bus, my jeans were wet almost up to my knees!

yummy

so mom is making scalloped corn and she looks in the cupboard to find.....

mom: 'oh no! we don't have any canned corn!'
*everyone rummages thru the cupboards; there is no corn*
me: *calls the grocery store* 'are you open this evening?'
store: 'we close in 10 minutes.'
me: 'ok, thanx.' *to mom* 'they close in 10 minutes'
mom: 'we'll be there in 5!'

we got back from the grocery store in 8 minutes with a couple cans of corn.

also....happy thanksgiving to everybody who celebrates it! :)

i had a fight with an apple.....

me: *pushes apple corer/slicer down on peeled apple*
apple: *tips sideways*
me: 'resistance is futile!' *pushes down AGAIN*
apple: *flies onto kitchen floor*
me: *retrieves apple and positions corer/slicer* 'we are borg!'
apple: *skids across counter into sink*
me: 'you will comply' *retrieves and tries again* 'COMPLY!'
apple: *is assimilated into apple crisp*

meanwhile bro is laughing. *eyeroll*

it was so funny last night. we were having body-grandma over for dinner. mom was gonna put a chicken in the oven, then some bbq chicken thighs, with potato stuffing in the chicken, a green veggie, and homemade applesauce. we were gonna peel the apples while she was with a client 3-4pm, and then she'd come home and take over!

yea. it didn't turn out like that. she got accidentally scheduled a client from 4-5pm, so we put the whole chicken in the oven with a meat thermometer (it slipped and ended up measuring the pan, eheh!) and then later put in the thighs with bbq sauce. then we peeled potatoes and boiled them (didn't know how to make potato stuffing, so mashed potatoes instead). and snapped and cooked the green beans. AND peeled/sliced the apples and put them on to boil.

it was kinda fun, actually. we don't mind cooking, it's just when our responsibility goes from 'yay! peeling apples!' to 'making a whole dinner myself!' unexpectedly, it comes as a surprise! :D

mom & dad are planning to go to body-great-aunt's memorial service 8hrs away from here. they'll be gone friday, saturday, and most of sunday. me & bro get to be home alone again.

tonight we're making green beans with bacon to go with the leftover chicken/rice/picante enchiladas we made for dinner yesterday. then today or tomorrow we're gonna make rhubarb bread with the rhubarb in our garden. the rhubarb bread recipe is prolly one of the most delicious things ever. *grin*

i wish SOMEBODY inside LIKED raisins. we've got this peanut/chocolate chip/sunflower seed/raisin mix that's SO GOOD except we don't like raisins, so we've gotta pick them out. most of the time at least ONE of us likes something. haha, if somebody other than ^merrick ate dinner (dinner time is family time so it's ^merrick's time!) we'd totally SHOCK mom by eating all this other stuff. *grin*

we got inspired by that meme question so we all decided to invent our own flavors of ice cream. *grin*

me: strawberry caramel
^merrick: mint brownie/cookie dough
^kv: peanut butter mixed nut
^isah: melonberry with real berries

& ^wyatt won't eat anything frozen, so he's sitting out.

meme!

today is 4th of july! we're gonna watch fireworks tonight at dusk. the nearby country club sets off these amazing fireworks for their members and we can watch them up close just walking a couple blocks. before that, we're grilling barbecue chicken with potato salad and ice cream/lemonade pie.

i made pink lemonade ice cream pie tonight. i LOVE the ice cream with the yummy graham cracker crust. mmmmmm!

also, if they get back in stock, we MIGHT get this lenovo ideapad laptop. dad actually approves of something we found for once, but he's still shopping i guess!

we hung around downtown from 8:45am ~ 5:30pm today. got fasting bloodwork done, walked to get a bagel sandwich for lunch, sat in the park for hours reading & story-planning. my left upper arm got sunburned, but nothing else got burned. i dunno where i was sitting for that to happen.

8am is WAY too early for this body to wake up. it needs like 10+hrs of sleep. gonna wake up at 8am again tomorrow too. i wish we could MAKE the body fall asleep cuz it takes it like 45+mins.....unless i take ^merrick up to my bedroom and we snuggle. we fall asleep faster that way. SO FAR! *fingers crossed!*

we're not gonna finish camp nanowrimo this month. we got 36K yesterday, but i dunno how much more we're gonna write. we quit our novel in the middle and started on 'backstory bingo' with a card from [community profile] origfic_bingo. it's a lot of fun but it's slower going than novel writing.

dad's day

today we celebrated dad's bday & father's day. it was pretty cool! me & ^merrick baked carrot cake and dad grilled hamburgers and brats and italian sausages on the grill. mom made baked veggies and green beans that me & ^merrick fried bacon for. yummy!! *smile* we did a tiny bit of writing for camp nano but we're gonna catch up tomorrow.

i got a free bottle of pop from the grocery store today! the lady in front of me paid for my pop cuz i'd been waiting for so long. i tried to say no but she insisted so i thanked her. it was really cool. so now my question is this.....do i say i bought pop today if the stranger in front of me paid for it??

yummeh!

i've GOTTA come up with SOMETHING to do out of the house tomorrow. grah! i swear i'd rather take the bus downtown to the hospital lab and have them draw my blood than stay at home any longer. it's something that needs doing this week or next. the hospital has these awesome bacon-&-cheese burgers for lunch. then i can go to the library afterward. so yea. if i catch this bug going around the family, i'm gonna be SERIOUSLY pissed.
