Sputtering Nothing ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Tuesday Nov 15 th –




The day we forgot the water was being turned off ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
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 ๐Ÿ˜

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 ๐Ÿ˜

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.

The cheesecake turned out nicer then usual actually, the sugar and cinnamon topping becoming an even golden color over the entire thing๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I love this super easy cheesecake, (recipe will follow ๐Ÿ˜‰) though it’s a bit on the sweet side so coffee would have been delicious with it ๐Ÿ˜•

Mike decided to go out and get some coffee for us, only to find the coffee shop closed again๐Ÿ™ˆ
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 ๐Ÿ˜œ

Supper was steak, fried potatoes and garlic toast.

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 ๐Ÿ˜Š

I finally got mail for ME and not for the previous apartment owners!๐Ÿ˜

A package from my sister with some lovely note paper, a cute piece of art aaaand last but not least, mini marshmallows!! ๐Ÿ˜†
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…marshmallows๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜‹

Just proves that sisters know best ๐Ÿ˜‰




Wednesday Nov 16th –




Coffee and cheesecake, the perfect breakfast๐Ÿ˜โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿด

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 space๐Ÿ™ˆ

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 ๐Ÿ˜

Mike eventually returned and though he hadn’t been sent out to buy anything, this is how he came through the door ๐Ÿ˜œ

Turns out he actually hadn’t went out and wasted our money, he had bought stuff for work and was working on creating a display with products they supply coloring too๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ

Good thing too because there is no way we required that much junk ๐Ÿ˜œ


Soup was heated up and cheese biscuits made.

I really liked the soup ๐Ÿ˜Š
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 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‹

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 ๐Ÿ˜‹

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’ ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜œ
