Runs for Cookies: Friday Evening Images


Gosh, I bought so used to not writing a submit all week that now it feels bizarre to really discover the time to jot down one! I simply bought dwelling from our first cross nation meet (properly, it was our second, however the first one was canceled resulting from a thunderstorm simply minutes earlier than we have been supposed to start out).

It is now 8:30 and Jerry is making dinner so I can write this submit. Oddly sufficient, I haven’t got a ton of photographs this week (no less than not very thrilling ones). Many of the footage on my digicam are of measurements and footage {of electrical} shops and issues like that–so boring!–because I despatched them to my brother and/or brother-in-law to ask if I used to be doing issues accurately within the bed room and loo transform.

Listed below are some photographs, nonetheless…

I used to be SO COLD (I am at all times chilly) however I lastly busted out my Detroit Lions onesie and even a winter hat to put on in mattress, hahaha.

 I’ve a Jeep Renegade, which is certainly not very large, however right this moment I managed to suit a bifold door, 12 items of casing, 3 items of a door jamb, and a small bag of different stuff from Menards. I used to be fairly impressed with myself! Much more impressed that I carried the bifold door whereas pushing a cart filled with the opposite stuff.

I made this Common Tso’s tofu just a few days in the past and I TOTALLY over-baked the tofu. I forgot about it within the oven till I smelled it–it was so overcooked that it had the feel of croutons. I attempted to melt it with the sauce, nevertheless it tasted horrible and was nonetheless very crunchy. It appeared nice although! I will strive once more one other time and keep in mind to set the oven timer.

I assumed it might be enjoyable to point out this behind-the-scenes image of my Wednesday Weigh-In selfie… since my room and loo are torn aside and there may be stuff EVERYWHERE, I needed to transfer this full size mirror someplace the place it might be tall sufficient to see me, the place the sunshine wasn’t inflicting a darkish shadow, prop it up onto one thing so it was excessive sufficient, and put one thing behind it to maintain it from falling over. That is what it seems to be like when it isn’t cropped! 

I went out to the storage to chop some drywall, and once I turned over a chunk, I noticed THIS ENORMOUS MONSTER on the drywall! We had our storage sprayed for spiders earlier this 12 months, however I assume this one snuck in. I despise spiders and this gave me the heebie jeebies.

I used to be organizing some prizes for cross nation and Chick determined that he may undoubtedly match inside this  field. (The buckwheat pillow within the field was not one of many prizes, hahaha–I bought it for my dad for his birthday.)

I noticed this on the wall within the storage and thought it was pretty–I could not work out what was causing it, although.

I noticed this truck at Lowe’s is not it the best?! Even the colour of it’s excellent.

I needed to burn the world once I heard CHRISTMAS music taking part in at Lowe’s! And so they have been stocking the cabinets with Christmas stuff. It is mid-September, individuals. Then I had Christmas music in my head all day.

Duck was “serving to” me work on some cross nation stuff. Once I do not take note of him, he simply lies on my binder in order that I’m pressured to concentrate to him 😉

Duck doing his sploot. It by no means will get previous!

My pal Jack, Jerry, and Noah all went disc {golfing}. I assumed it was actually cool that Jack and Jerry included Noah. He actually likes taking part in.

I do not know what I used to be pondering right here, however clearly I used to be concentrating very exhausting. Or simply taking a look at no matter it’s I simply tousled. I can not inform you what number of swear phrases have been uttered shouted whereas engaged on this toilet. 

The newborn squirrels that have been born within the spring are getting so large! And really courageous. They’re coming nearer and nearer to the door for nuts now.

Jerry despatched this image to me–the bumper sticker is SO excellent for me! I actually need it.

My dad and mom’ neighbors determined to chop down an infinite tree that was between their homes. It was fairly superb! My dad was appearing goofy right here, like he pushed it over or one thing, haha.

These footage type of inform a narrative of how my candy little Duckling is a genius cat…

It is 1:00 AM and I am making an attempt to sleep. I hear Duck taking part in with one thing within the toilet, and for the reason that toilet has SO many instruments and issues in it proper now, I bought away from bed to research. By some means, he discovered this string from a plumb bob that I would put manner within the nook of the counter (for the very goal of preserving it away from the cats–we all understand how a lot Duck likes to get into string). Effectively, that’s what he was taking part in with–trying to get it out of the nook.

I put it in my device field on the ground and tucked it beneath some stuff in there so that you just could not see it. (no image). Then I went again to mattress. A few minutes later, I heard him in there once more. I went in to see what he was doing, and he’d dug the plumb bob string out from beneath every little thing!

So, I tucked it again into the device field after which put a hamper basket over the entire thing and went again to mattress. Not even a couple of minutes later, I heard him once more. Acquired away from bed AGAIN. Solely to search out this:

I swear, he’s the neatest, most decided cat I’ve ever recognized. So, I simply took the time in the course of the night time to take every little thing off the counter, put it in my closet, and shut the door.

Lastly, this second was a (small) “win” that I undoubtedly wanted this week. I hung two items of rectangular drywall, which was no large deal; however then I used to be making an attempt to determine how I used to be going to Tetris the heck out of the highest half. 

I used to be interested by what number of items, the place to chop, and so forth. Out of spontaneity, I figured, what the heck–I will attempt to do the maths and make the entire thing slot in one big piece. It wasn’t so simple as it sounds–the ceiling is angled, so I needed to calculate the angle (4.4 levels) after which lower out the shapes to suit the doorway.

I could not consider it once I noticed it match like a glove on the primary strive!

Clearly, I get very excited over the little issues nowadays 😉  I’ve completed hanging all of the drywall and now I am engaged on taping and mudding.

And that is all I’ve bought! I’m going to eat a number of the lo mein that Jerry made, get cozy in mattress, and watch some Dexter. Tomorrow morning, my mother and I are headed to Jap Market in Detroit (a farmer’s market). We go away vivid and early at 5:45 AM!

Have an excellent weekend! xo
