Our Life In Pictures - Project365 Week 3

BIG WEEK!!! *shew* Okay... I know you're not here to listen to me yammer....

Sunday 16 January - Sam cooked again. He made Talapia with some peppers and onions, and garlic and lemon and white wine! His choice of sides is a bit weird... but... whatever! It tasted really good despite how strange it looked!

Monday 17 January - Bug spend most of the weekend away, and since Monday was a holiday, they didn't have school (no, our school district didn't make them go on MLK Day, how disrespectful to make them go!) and so she got to spend two days with one of her friends. By Monday I was kind of missing my little chatterbox!

Tuesday 18 January - I had a woman purchase some snails from me before Christmas. Then everything went WAY down hill!! It was terrible! I just could not seem to make it to the post office before then. So, I included some extras and shipped them off to Washington state. All the way from Jacksonville, NC to Washington and only 1 died. I musta done something right!

Wednesday 19 January - Tuesday my friend Keona and I picked up some free crap items from a nice lady out in the middle of nowhere. In it was a bag of boys clothes. These pajamas were in there, but, I think they smoked or something because, while the clothes smelled clean, the had an odor to them, so we washed them again. (We would have anyways tho) Monkey LOVES pajamas. He's always saying he wants new/more pajamas. This was his favorite thing in the entire bag.

Thursday 20 January - I know this looks strange... but! It's really just sourdough starter! Remember how I said I was going to the fondue party on Friday?? Yeah... I made sourdough... *buffs fingernails*

Friday 21 January - SOURDOUGH!!!!!!!! Oh man... I teased Nicole the entire day about this loaf of bread. Was it worth the wait Nicole?? ;-) I think it was. Everyone seemed to like it a whole lot. I also made a loaf of Amish bread as well, but I didn't take a picture of it because it was ugly. It stuck to the pan and ripped the bottom crust off. :-( Nicole said it tasted fantastic tho. :-D

Saturday 22 January - What's that? I forgot the picture? No... no I didn't take a picture. I completely forgot I had a doctors appointment for some medications, so we were an hour late for that. The doctor still seen me tho, so that was a good thing, even if it was a very quick session. From there we went on base, and it was lightly snowing, to fill Monkey and I's prescriptions at the pharmacy. We were there for a couple of hours. We had lunch, walked around looking at furniture and different housewares, and then had to go back and stand in line and wait again to pick them up. From there we left to come home. There was about an inch of snow on the ground!No big deal as long as the roads aren't slick. Sam assured me that they weren't bad and we took off. No sooner did we get out on the main road to leave base that the roads turned to complete ice! I FREAKED out! I don't handle ice well. When I was 17, my sister and I were involved in an accident, and we rolled the truck we were in about 3 times because of some black ice. Scary stuff. Ever since then, I don't do icy roads. They shut the front gate down shortly after we were off base. It was a mess! Needless to say, I spent the majority of the rest of the evening freaking out, and avoiding housework. :-D

Do you grow snails?

I love PJs too!

and that sourdough looks absolutely delish!!!! I have never been very good at bread baking!

That One Girl said...

I do breed snails... tho my big momma female passed away today. :-( It was a sad day for me.

I like PJs as well... but nowhere near as much as Monkey!! LOL

It really wasn't that hard! The hardest part was making the sourdough starter! :-P

Nicole said...

both breads were SOOOOOO good! you're the best!

The Bug said...

That tilapia looks most excellent -& so do the potatoes. Yum!

I hate trying to drive on ice too. Snow is just fine, but ice is nervewracking!

Susan said...

The pink crochet throw on the bed, IT'S SO LOVELY!

I think the jammies are cute too.

Tiffany said...

For some reason, most of my comments are about how good the food looks on everyone P365 pics. Oh well, both dishes really look awesome!

I have a difficult time being a passenger when there is ice or snow on the roads. Goes back to two accidents some time ago.
Once upon a time I had sour dough starter...
Such a neatly made bed!
See ya soon again.
