mm, veggies… November 8, 2006

so, can i just tell you about how tasty a dinner i just had? you can smile politely and think about how much better what you ate for dinner was, or how my food didn’t really require so much effort, but keep in mind that i live off of freezer foods and pop tarts and hot dogs and soup and cookies. going to the kitchen to make food is a real accomplishment. *ahem* but back to dinner… fresh corn on the cob (right out of the garden) with butter and seasoned salt, pillsbury crescent rolls with cheese inside, and peanut butter cookies. YUMMY!

also from monday’s gardening class, a whole transplant tray of herbs… yay! well, sort of yay. as you probably know, i live in the dorm. we have one window. my roommate’s desk (with a hutch) is in front of the window. the herbs have to be in the windowsill (can’t let them die before i get home in two weeks!), which requires a really strange looking contortion act to water them… *sigh* dorm life… don’t you love it? i really do have to keep the herbs alive, though, since they are going to my BF’s mom (she’s kind of into gardening and stuff) and besides, who wants to see plants die? i have eight different herbs in there… rosemary, thyme, basil, cilantro, dill, oregano, and, erm, two others. haha.

there hasn’t been too much knitting getting done around here. i finished up a dishcloth that i’d been working on since last week (a week for a dishcloth! what is happening to me?!) and a balband cuff for a friend. i also knit one mitten over the weekend. i refuse to take pictures until i have a pair. i don’t want to jinx myself! there’s so much i want to knit, but things have been really busy. i’ve been pretty tired all week. luckily for me, all i have to get through is an accounting quiz tomorrow afternoon and then it’s the weekend and i can take a well-deserved (in my opinion) nap. mm…. a nap…

i can’t believe i almost forgot to mention that i won yarn from the dutchicans online shower! i think i’m getting knitpicks dye your own sockweight yarn… whoo! (too bad i’ve never dyed anything or completed a pair of socks … there’s a first time for everything, right!)

    Yarn dying is soooo much fun!! I’ve used Kool-Aid and jello (believe it or not) AND I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! Sorry, got carried away…

    Thanks for the good luck wishes – 1 more week to go!! x
