Day #44: Roasting Charlie's Birthday

I finished roasting the 6 cups of delicious pumpkin seeds! Except for the first batch, they all came out great!  The first batch was a little overcooked, as I wasn't sure how long to cook them.






In the middle of the day, I went to my nephew's birthday party. It was a fun, noisy affair! I've put a set on my flickr page - enjoy the photos! I'm happy with the shots I captured, but not the coloring. I just used the 18-55mm kit lens as I needed a wider angle. The slinky shots look pretty cool.

Day #43: The fatigue

I've been running myself ragged lately, and I know I need enough sleep tonight to get to Wauseon to register my car tomorrow morning and not be a zombie.

Sorry about the short posts lately, but I'll get back to better stuff soon!

Day #42: Don't Panic!

I'll be creating a new blog very soon but it won't hamper with this blog, nor its posting frequency.  I'll let you know what it is once it's ready.

Unrelatedly, I still love my Honda Fit!

Day #41: So tired

I went to see Ben Folds in concert with the Columbus Symphony and it was amazing! I've never been to a symphony concert where the crowd was encourages to yell out expletives. This, however, is a late post since i arrived at my house at 2am after the concert. Was soooooo sleepy.

Day #40: The lava cake edition


IMG_0717, originally uploaded by shutterfli.

I didn't roast the pumpkin seeds today because I realized if I was going to participate in the potluck for the Canadian/Nissan teams Friday, I will need to make the cakes today. Tomorrow I'm going to a Ben Folds concert in Columbus, and Thursday is my last scheduled doctor appointment about the whole stroke stuff, so I'm going to celebrate after that!

The small cakes will get filled with hot fudge Thursday night, then frozen until the potluck. They'll be served with ice cream and Magic Shell on top after being microwaved a short time. Everyone whom has tried my concoction has given me rave reviews!

The pumpkin seeds are not yet dry, but I'm working on them. I have 6 cups of seeds!

And, I need another day to practice. My sound quality isn't up to my standards. But here's a picture of my seeds taking over the kitchen! (I'm posting this entry through Flickr!)

Day #38: A Well Respected Pumpkin Seed

I learned to play the song, "A Well Respected Man" by the Kinks on my ukulele, which is super fun! Of course I have to sing it with an English accent.

I also am soaking pumpkin seeds to prepare them for roasting tomorrow. Yay!

I'll record the song I learned tomorrow so you get to laugh at my poor uke playing.

Thanks for checking in!
