I am sitting in my house, the night before the movers come. Tomorrow they will be packing everything up to take to our new home.

I have taken some broken furniture to the dump. I have cleaned out under the sinks (trust me, that is scary). The litter box is empty and clean, the fridge is just empty. I admit that cleaning that is a little scarier than the litter-box. I have organized my yarn for the movers. And by that, I mean that I have sorted yarns into different areas to be boxed together by importance and when it is scheduled to be used for a project. ( I can lie to myself )

The house already looks empty. As I sit here and have my dinner of stale triscuits, coke and top ramen, I am pondering where everything will go in the new house.

And wondering if for the new house, I will actually get around to unpacking everything.

Making room

I've been a busy little bee. I'm getting the house ready for my sweetie to come home. There is now half the closet and 2 drawers open for him to use. I've been rearranging the craft room to accomodate extra guests during the wedding festivities. I've found projects that I started and have no idea what they were to be.

I've also been hard at work finishing up wedding favors and things. The end total count of favors is 90 jars of Harvest Apple Spread. 'Cause it has honey in it and I can call it whatever I want.

And all the while wearing my wedding shoes while doing laundry.

We must Fight!


It's not Alchemy, but it will make you giggle.

It is a beautiful evening. The sun is setting and the weather is perfect. It's 8:30pm and I should be outside on my deck, reading my book and painting my nails. Enjoying the wonderful summer night draw near.

But no. Because my neighbor thinks that it is the perfect time to mow the lawn. Okay. How long can that take? As the noise escalates, I decide I can wait a little bit. Their front yard isn't that big. The silence begins. I take hope that I will still be able to enjoy some of the evening.

Then he starts the chainsaw.

Swedish Chef

One of my favorite Muppets is the Swedish Chef. He happily throws what ever is at hand into a dish or pot and calls it cuisine. Be it the live lobster, Rizo or Miss Piggy that he is chasing with the meat cleaver. That is how I approached dinner tonight.

Well, I didn't chase any small animals around with cutlery, but I did open the fridge and said, "Hm, let's see what happens when this is combined." Now, this can be a very dangerous experiment. There have been many of nights that I've gone to bed hungry from food experiments run awry. But tonight was a winner. I rate this as a mostly healthy meal. Kids, do not try this at home with out Adult supervision and a canine or feline taste-tester.

Summer Pad Thai:

1/2 cooked spaghetti squash, cooked and forked out in long strands
1/2 package of frozen stir fry veggies
1/2 cup water
1 chicken bullion
1 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tsp sesame seed oil

Dissolve bullion in water heated in the microwave. Stir in peanut butter, ginger, and basil. (red pepper if you like a little spice) Put squash in a bowl, put frozen veggies on top. Sprinkle with sesame seed oil. Heat bowl in microwave about 2 minutes. Add peanut butter mixture and heat for another 3-4 minutes until veggies are cooked. Mix all together, garnish with basil and enjoy! Two servings. (or one if you are really digging the way it turned out)
