Tuesday Nov 15 th –
The day we forgot the water was being turned off 😬
There were notices posted around the building stating that on Tuesday, there would be no water and we took note and talked about it many times!
Only to wake up on Tuesday and go to run the water and be greeted by a sputtering nothing…
And we were out of coffee beans, so not the best morning around 😏
I heated up some milk and we had chia latte mix with some instant coffee for some sort of caffeine intake and I then settled in to write/edit pictures.
The water actually came back on around 2:00, though hot water didn’t follow until later but it was enough to feel like I could do a few things.
Like bake a lazy cheesecake 😁
You see, I don’t have a ton of dishes, so when I bake, a dish or two probably has to get rewashed and reused a few times during the baking process, thus needing water to bake.
I love this super easy cheesecake, (recipe will follow 😉) though it’s a bit on the sweet side so coffee would have been delicious with it 😕
Mike decided to go out and get some coffee for us, only to find the coffee shop closed again🙈
So, some other beans were purchased to hold us over and as usual he came back with more than just coffee but hey, what’s the fun in him coming back without at least one surprise 😜
Sour cream, salt, pepper, a dash of Worcestershire, and everything bagel mix from Epicure made for a light, but still nicely flavoured dip for the potatoes 😊
A package from my sister with some lovely note paper, a cute piece of art aaaand last but not least, mini marshmallows!! 😆
Now, you’re probably thinking mini, fluffy kinda marshmallows but no, these are the baby sized/kind of crunchy ones that usually come mixed in a small amount with packaged hot chocolate.
Mikes face was one of disbelief at watching a 21 year olds excitement over…marshmallows😏💕😋
Just proves that sisters know best 😉
Wednesday Nov 16th –
A little of this and a little of that filled the morning and I begin working on a bracelet order.
Mike had to go into town/was kind of sent into town by me because he had worked from the house all week and I needed some space🙈
I used that space to begin making lemon orzo soup for supper.
I love lemons and orzo noodles are one of my favourites so it sounded pretty perfect 😁
Good thing too because there is no way we required that much junk 😜
I really liked the soup 😊
Mike thought it was a bit too sour soo I’m guessing this is a personal preference kinda meal and lemons gotta be your thing 😏👌🏻🍋
Mike and Fiji had their evening nap a day or two before, so it was my turn to occupy the couch and it was lovely, as most naps are 😋
Once I awoke Mike broke open the pomelo and we enjoyed picking it apart like monkeys and maybe that’s what subconsciously inspired the movie choice of the night… ‘The legend of Tarzan’ 😎😜
