Nonsensicality’s And Merriment

Sunday Dec 24th –

 

We didn’t have eggs so Mike got out of breakfast duty and I just made us some yogurt bowls.

 

‘‘Twas a fresh day indeed, -30 ish being the biting cold temperature that we faced during the four steps to the parents truck that morning 😜

I ashamedly admit to being fairly tired during that morning service and because of that, I have no educational tid bits to share

😬😣

After church, we were invited over to lunch at Mom and Dads.
She said it was potluck but only AFTER I arrived, so she supplied the entire, super tasty meal 😉 Continue reading “Nonsensicality’s And Merriment”

Core Values Challenged

Wednesday Dec 21st –

 

I mixed up some meatballs and sauce for our supper that night and then Mother retrieved me and I went to her house for the day.

She had requested my help with a big house clean and in return she would help pay for my plane ticket to Winnipeg in January.

That’s right, start of the new year Mom, my aunts, a cousin and I will meet up in Winnipeg for some girl time!

So, if you have been or live there, please let me know some ‘must do’s’!
I believe we will be staying around the Osborne Village area.

 

So, our whole day was spent cleaning and all that entails, including one extra WEIRD thing Mom made me do.
If I hadn’t wanted to have my ticket paid off I would have refused to do the one task she requested, simply because it went against every grain in my being and maybe even my core values :p

She got me to take down clothes from her closest and re-hang them on hangers that matched her other ones…
Had this meant she started with a multi colored, plastic and velvet mixture I would understand.
But she went from plastic whites, to different shaped plastic whites…

Anyways, we had a good a time as two people can have while house cleaning and then she took me home.
I heated up a large batch of the mozzarella tomato sauce, knowing that Mike would soon be able to get more of the packaged mix when he goes to Europe 😉

 

We enjoyed our supper and spent the rest of our evening relaxing and kitten watching.
I urged Mike to take photos of them while they are still young and cute because that’ll be over soon :p Continue reading “Core Values Challenged”

Not Just A Dime A Dozen

Monday Dec 18th –

 

 

Monday was a big day for not just me but also for my sister (in law) and mother.

My sister and I had decided we wanted a little touch up lesson on bread/cinnamon bun making from the best person we knew to give such a thing.
The Mom 😏

So by 9:00 that morning, three woman were in the kitchen, two Bosch mixers going, four types of dough being created and two children needing attention between.

 

I decided I don’t ever want to work in a bakery😜
Not that I think bakeries include wee humans but the noise of the mixers and the search for the correct ingredients and tools between other people, though perfectly fine for one morning, is not a thing I’d be ok with every day😉
Fresh bread everyday would be lovely though. Continue reading “Not Just A Dime A Dozen”

Concocting In Chaos

Thursday Dec 14th –

 

 

Mom was over to complete her wifi work, so between coffees and chats I worked around the house.
Finding more things to unpack, sort and rearranging to mull over 😜

I hauled a dresser in from the garage and washed it up to take up into the craft room, so I could start organizing in there finally.
Deciding that since I love my living room so much, the craft room will probably be more of a storage/guest area for starts 😉

Hubster had cookie business to take care of post work, so he was home late.
My sister had been a dear and sent over a pre-prepared meal to make this ‘move in’ thing easier.
Pull apart buffalo cheese bread, pre chopped veggies, fries portioned for two and even cookies for dessert 😳👌🏻

So that worked out perfectly as I didn’t want the hassle of making a big meal that late in the evening and it was all super tasty and very appreciated  🙂

It’s odd but endearing in a way, Atlas, our little she cat, likes to carry things.
Her toy ball, odd play things, the spoon out of my coffee…? 🙈 Continue reading “Concocting In Chaos”

Sincerely And Satisfactorily

Saturday Dec 2nd –

Sick of hearing about pies yet? 😏
Well… plug your eyes and read no more 😎

 

Apple pie… the one I really was not looking forward to making at all, as I wouldn’t enjoy the ‘fruits’ of my labour 😜

Still it had to be done and I knew Michiel and Dad would appreciate it so that helped… kind of😏

Mom made pizzas for us all for lunch and then Mike and I retreated to the house. Continue reading “Sincerely And Satisfactorily”

Click And Collect

Tuesday Nov 28th –

Pie number two began its transformation from ingredients to a plate-able experience.

Peanut butter filling with a chocolate crumb crust 🥜🍫🥧

 

Amidst the making of that, I shopped some of the remaining sales available online, still searching for a reasonably priced/correct size bench for our entryway.
To no avail.

Hubster was working at our place, filling some spaces with spray foam, finishing some edges and getting a few of the last boards in place on ledges and what not.
SOON a house update shall come 🤞🏻

I packed up more of our room, moving things closer to the door so stuff can be taken over each time someone goes.
I’ll need to re go through all the boxes while unpacking and get rid of, as people just moving into a house shouldn’t already have so many items pretty sure 😬

I may also have glanced online as to what kittens were available in our area 🙈
If you’re in the area and know if any white/grey/Siamese look, female kittens, please let me know 😉💕 Continue reading “Click And Collect”
