Friday the 13th Picto Post 5(ish)

Friday, November 13th, 2009

TheMan and I are on VACATION today so of course we slept in lazy. Sadly, our vacation began poorly last night with the discovery of cat puke on the new “quilt” and down the side of the cat bed. Both had to be washed, only one came out unscathed. Poor, poor cat bed. Poor, poor (stupid little puke-y furball) kitties with no place to snuggle up in. When I did a cat check around 1ish, I couldn’t find Vande anywhere until I thought to look in the sock drawer.

Today is My Friday…Still

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

NaNoBloMe is going to kill me yet! However, I persevere as I consider the fact that I’m posting the same day I’m up as still viable. Do the official NaNoBloMe rules say you can still post(date) something if you haven’t gone to bed yet? If not then they are blog Nazis because really. I’m making the effort here!

Truck Blanket and Other Weekend Stories

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Your Monday Weekend Recap Blogspot was preempted by a 6th Anniversary Post, thus I officially designate today pseudo-Monday. I’m hoping it will even out the feeling I have that today is Wednesday. I hate that with a burning hate when I’m off by a day ahead of schedule. BAH!

Here’s a random Friday Five of miscellaneous odds and ends.

Potato Bacon Soup

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

This recipe came about because I got a steal on a 15lb bag of potatoes. Of course then I had 15lbs of potatoes and there are only the two of us. I also have a 10 quart stock pot so this recipe is geared for filling that pot up with soup. It makes a lot of soup. Tasty soup, but a lot of soup none the less.

They Say Double Gloucester is Twicest as Nice

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

I had a bit of time to spare whilst running errands and the Cheese, Cheese, Cheese shop happened to be on the same side of the road and we haven’t done a Hard Cheeses post for a while so I thought this was one of those karmic events.
