First stop was the post office. We mailed a special letter to NY, NY and pick up our package. Next stop was Mega for some groceries. (Exciting news y'all - they're finally letting people sign up for their 'club card' (which gets you all sorts of great deals) without forcing you to get a 'credit card' too.) On our way to the bus-stop a bus pulled up - so we ran the last few feet and caught it back up the mountain.
Back at Home I put away the groceries and Z got to install our brand spanking new sound-card. Now that the sound quality is top-notch the next step (maybe as an anniversary present) will be decent speakers.
I'll quickly mention the bug-infestation in my barley - yeah - really really really really gross. The container was crawling. I exterminated and disinfected and washed and checked everything else in the cupboard. *shudders* yuck. bugs.
This afternoon I started cooking for Shabbos and I didn't do much - but it was enough. There's already challah in the freezer and Z made 6 liters of homebrewed lemon iced tea.
The menu goes something like this -
Roasted Garlic, Chumus, Chicken soup with matzah balls (cause we love 'em), pesto chicken wings, garlic rice, peas and possibly roasted root veggies.
Roasted Garlic, Chumus, Pickles, Bulgur Sidedish, Honey Mustard Shnitzel, Tossed Green Salad, Chickpea Salad (if we get chickpeas tomorrow anyway), and I kind of want a kugel - so maybe I'll make a potato something? (Ok - so I don't quite have it figured out - but by the time Shabbos gets here it'll be settled.)
Oh yeah - I even made a flyer for yo'Abba who is currently enjoying his view of the Rockies from Denver. A couple hundred people are now in possession of a flyer I made too. Heehee, isn't that exciting?
Alrighty - I'm out of here. It's been quite a day and there's another one coming up real soon!
And I almost forgot to mention - both my cell phones are now officially dead so don't bother trying to call me on them. (Don't worry - I already ordered a 150nis replacement for my '8861' number - and it should be here sometime next week.)
