2 Day Work Week

Boy, these 2 day work weeks are killer.  Good thing our 10 day staycation starts Friday.

I'm all set with ingredients.  Bought three whole chickens.  Gonna chop 'em up and make yummy things.

And yesterday, we found a new Borders.  It's a little over an hour away but the drink was amazing and the cafe, very nice.

I even bought a new book with a 50% off coupon.

Not too shabby.

And now, if you'll excuse me, there's steamed yam mash with my name on it. Along with good butter, sea salt and organic steamed broccoli. 

Num num num.

  11. Bliss: It's nice to have a few short weeks, sprinkled throughout the year. My job at the shop though, has a bit too many. I don't mind this week though, since we're going on holiday. Enjoy your three day work week.

    Trey: I know it. Two days. It's tough stuff. And both nights too, so I won't even get to see Tim. Like Cake said. It's hard living in the fast lane.

    iZombie: Glad to see you survived the 21st. Sure thing. The more the merrier. I never had taco meat before. So many new things to try.

    Lurker: This week aside, it will be. Last week they gave me 24 hours and the week before 30, but it's so hit or miss. Which is fine for a second job, but not so much for a first. Still no word from the pound. Bummer.

  14. Stay-cations are nice. I'm starting one on Thursday. Just need to stock up on "liquid bread."

  15. Liquid bread? Is that anything like powdered milk?

  16. It's like a snapshot of heaven - day after day after day off, sunshine, good food, and a puppy. It makes me happy just reading about it.

  17. Steamed yams are great. I like yams and sweet potatoes, even if I'm not sure of the precise difference. Cooked a whipped sweet potato and banana casserole for Thanksgiving last year.

  18. Porky: That's very nice of you to say. Thanks. Not every day is heaven. Like the day she went pee pee on the bedroom floor. But overall, it's pretty darn good. And I'm ready for a staycation, too.

    DocStout: Sweet potato and banana casserole? How about that. Never thought of that, but it does sound yummy.
