Pretty Over Practical πŸ°

Wednesday Oct 26th –


By Wednesday I was getting into a nice little morning ritual 😊

Roll outta bed, let Fiji out of his room and pet him a bit, get coffee brewing, do a couple of odds and ends until the coffees done and then take it to the nap room and sit in front of the little window and read before truly starting the day πŸ˜Šβ˜•οΈπŸ“š

After that mornings session was over I had bread from Sarah for breakfast πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
A cheese filled roll was heated up and it tasted pretty much identical to breads we had eaten in Greece 😁

I had internet again so the blog got tended too as well as paperwork I had been putting offπŸ™„

And then some Adventures In Odyssey was happily listened to while going about the days tasks.
Which eventually including cleaning and using my new dryer πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

With Mike being gone it means my meals are eaten at really weird times and probably more bits of random junk food than actual meals, sooo I really have no idea what was eaten for a ‘supper’.



Thursday Oct 27th –



It was time to head to the nearby store for the first all alone grocery haul, at a co-op store actually.
A list was made, garbage and paper taken down with me and then a short walk got me to the shop.

I couldn’t resist picking up some of the pretty fall leaves on my way back πŸ˜‰πŸπŸ‚

The mailbox check only held things for the previous owners πŸ˜”

After unpacking the groceries, returning to comfortable clothes (Mikes shirts/sweaters, slippers etc 😜)  and settling in on the couch, I arranged the blog post and photos before I began making farmers sausage soup for the next days supper.

The photo was taken for the last Jem Moment ⬆️
The very last farmers sausage I had from Canada was fried up and made into one of my favourite soups, with mothers helpful texted instructions and answers to my many questions it turned out nearly (but not quite) as good as hers πŸ˜‰πŸ΅

Then began the dessert making.

I first attempted some little cheesecakes but they ended up not cooking right and being ugly and that’s never acceptable so those dishes were washed so they could be reused as my dish selection is still pretty limited.

Then began cake making.
I could have done it the easy way, one cake, one pan, done.
But I wanted it to be pretty, of courseπŸ™„
So I used my mini pan, three times, with a cooking time of 35 min each and then the wait time for cooling of the cake and washing the pan in-between each layer 😏

Let’s say by the time the soup making, two episodes of dessert baking, icing whipping and dish washing was almost done, I was ready to sit and veg out on the couch 😜

Leaving the cake decorating for the next day, I cleaned it all up and then watched a movie with Fiji before hitting the hay.
