The last few days of my vacation, or shall I call it my stay-cation, went by far too quickly. And before I let you in on what went down, here are a few photographs from breakfast at the track. Warning! It was 7am in the morning and neither of us could keep are eyes open. But we still managed to find the food.
Can you say diabetes? But you have to pronounce it like the man on that commercial.
Speaking of food, everything I ate this past week was everything I initially wanted to avoid. But to be honest, I hardly ever eat everything I want. So I enjoyed every lick of my chocolate ice cream cone (with those waxy chocolate sprinkles), donut, candy apple and more. I even had two slices at ilove that week. The best. I should have taken pictures of those…
Katy and I ended up not going to Alive @ 5 because of the weather so Thursday I went up to camp… and was stuck in front of my computer writing my paper that was due at midnight. I was NOT a happy camper. Especially because I had to drive all the way back to Joe’s just to submit it. I know, it’s my fault. But I’d like to blame it on vacation this week.
Friday I headed home from Joe’s to make some yummy rice krispy treats for Katy. Don’t get me started on either subject- Katy or the krispies. The two of us have been sitting at work drooling over the fact that I had leftover mallows from my smores and she had enough krispies at her house. So, I sucked it up, bought a whole box of krispies and attempted on make these delicious treats. And I do believe that they turned out perfectly delicious. (Note to self, should have taken a picture of them- wait- I did!)
Every Friday is sushi Friday for Katy, Laura and I. In fact, the man at Sushi Cafe (holla to them!) even recognizes my voice when I call. Yes, they do have caller I.D but it’s not the same. I would normally be really bummed about missing sushi Friday, but this Friday, was Katy’s last day. And let me just say that today is Monday which means I’ve gone through an entire day without her knowing she won’t be coming in, and it stinks! It was a great weather, we sat outside at our picnic table and caught up. Looks like I’ll have to start bringing a book to work again for lunches… I’m a little hostile over the fact that she won’t be sitting next to me anymore, but I guess that’s what facebook/texting/blogging is for.
How could I forget. We were supposed to go out for drinks Friday night because it was her last day, but she had to work at her other job, and Laura had a major headache. Double boo. But I got to spend some quality time with my homeboy, Roscoe.
Now for the good part. Let me just say that Saturday and Sunday were spent at camp and then at the apartment cleaning, doing laundry = boring crap. BUT Saturday before I went up to camp, I worked on something that has now sparked a new hobby. I found this old Victrola record player a few weeks back, spent some time with my landlord (who has eight of them up in his attic) and cleaned it up. It’s from 1921 and I have about 50-100 records plus needles… and I got it working! It needs a little restoration on the outside, but nothing a ‘lil TLC can’t fix. I would post the video but it’s an AVI and apparently I can’t upload those files here. But I will work my hardest to change this minor detail. Until then, thanks for returning to read and enjoy your Monday evening!
