when it rains

I’m happy that our lawn got a trimming Tuesday while we were at work because it’s been raining non-stop since then and it would be looking pretty jungle-crazy right now. Rain, rain, rain. Apparently it’s hurricane remnants. I’m a big fan of hurricane remnants as opposed to actual hurricanes. I could not handle that kind of stress. Yeesh.

Jeremie and I had a great weekend in Minneapolis with the fam. I did some baking with my Grandma and made her a bunch of soup for the freezer. I love making soup. We went to the “Great Minnesota Get-Together” (a.k.a. the State Fair) with my cousins and my auntie and ate a proper minnesotan variety of fried foods including my favorite, fried dill pickles. I have a bunch of pictures of the butter heads and baby animals to put up, which I’ll try to do tonight. I haven’t been in the mood these past couple days to do much computing once I get home.

Last night I made a soup with yellow mung dal and sweet potatoes. It is very tasty. I also made my tasty tuscan bean spread but accidentally put too much salt in so I’ll have to figure something out. I’m hoping that the salt will mellow given a day in the fridge but if it doesn’t, i’ll just combine it with another can of beans and we’ll have bean spread sandwiches all weekend. The other thing I did last night was talk to Shana for the first time in well over a year and that was very, very nice. I emailed her yesterday afternoon to tell her about an old friend of ours that had a baby boy on Tuesday and she called me back. Three cheers for old friends. Hi Shana.

I need to go get some yarn and make some baby hats.
