Wow. I haven’t blogged in forever. I didn’t even realize it had been so long until Bethany told me that Ben had told her I hadn’t blogged and it bothered him not knowing what is going on in my life. Goodness, between Bsquared I won’t be able to get away from anything.
I have pictures of the snake while I was cooking it and will put them up soon. It was actually really good. No, Rambo (that’s what we named the snake) did not taste like chicken. He was really moist and tender (after getting around the bones) and sweet. I don’t know if that was from soaking him in Don’s all night or what. But I think snake is one of my favorite meats as far as taste goes. Next time I will completely de-bone him though. Now that I know what I’m doing it shouldn’t take me as long as it did.
I am working on getting my hunters safety course completed and then I am going to buy a hunting license. I even have a guy to take me. No, it’s not Jonathan so don’t worry. But I haven’t actually met him… I work with his Mom and have talked with him over the phone. I’m not crushing on him or anything but he called me “darlin'” and I am a sucker for a that word. I don’t know what it is but that word makes something inside this girl melt. Anyhow, I need to hang out with him sometime and get to know him that way I’m not going into the woods with a complete stranger… and so Dad’s okay with it. Hunting season starts October 17th. That gives me plenty of time to get to know him, get my license, and practice shooting. I need to know how to aim. 🙂
I also need to finish these cabinets. I’m almost done; I have one more that needs to be completely painted and then a corner that needs a second coat. Then I’ll need to give the trim two coats. Man, I am ready to be done! They look nice though. And I can’t wait to get the doors and new hardware up. It’s going to look amazing.
Last night was one of the most interesting nights of my life. I met up with some friends at Starbucks and then we walked around the neighborhood behind Starbucks (talking about Rambo! haha! Candace didn’t know I had gutted it and I am so proud of myself I just had to tell her) only to end the evening standing/sitting by the Comfort Inn talking about our most embarrassing moments, fashion trends, etc. It was hard to tell what everyone was thinking/feeling. Expressions weren’t freely coming and it was just awkward for me. I didn’t know what to say, or do, or even think at times. I feel like Candace and Greg were the only ones truly comfortable. Although, I could be wrong about RG… I’ve been around him in various settings and haven’t yet seen him uncomfortable. Poor kid, he looked dead tired. People don’t even think about the fact that he gets up way too early in the morning. That’s why I like to ask him because I know he gets up around 5am this time of the year. It makes people feel bad. Ha! That shouldn’t make me laugh but it does. It was a good night. I like hanging out with Candace and RG so that was fun… I guess.
RG was feeling really feisty or something last night. He “whatever-ed” me last night first thing and then told me he would give me the “hand” too. Must have been the Thai food they ate and it must have only been his meal because no one else was acting that way.
I think I’m going to ask him over for supper next week. It’s been a while since he’s had dinner with the family. I have next Thursday evening off so I’ll probably do it then. What do you guys think I should cook? Chicken enchilada casserole sounds really good right now.
Josh Bales concert: October 8th, 7:30 or 8pm. You can email this address: firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know you are interested and to purchase your ticket. Tickets can be bought up to the day of. Better get your ticket soon! Ben, it’s too bad you can’t bring the Three D boys. I think they would really enjoy it.
Well, I’m going to paint. I need to get some done so I can finish tomorrow. Actually I probably won’t finish until Monday because I’m going to have to put a second coat on the cabinets that were just primed today. Ugh.
