I was having a dandy of a night typing away at your guest posts when I hear a “dinka dinka dinka” and look to my right to see a HUGE ROACH on the shutters!! ARGGGGGGGGG!!
Instinct: Head straight to the garage shelf for the killer.
I got him once. No luck.
Heard him again. Spotted him on the top ledge. GOT HIM!
Waited 15 minutes shaking, listening to fluttering. Thought he was dying.
He emerges, barely unharmed!
He climbs the ceiling (HOLY CLAUSTROPHOBIA!)
I scout out my escape route through the kitchen, grabbing my camera so I can blog upstairs.
He lowers to the wall, to the baseboard. GOT HIM AGAIN!! REALLY GOOD!! Drenched in the stuff.
(Now, I will say, I feel horrible killing any creature, but the came into my territory. I never kill things in their natural habitats. Just stay outside please!)
Finally after several laps around the room, he dies in the fireplace.
OH the trauma! He was a big’in. I just hope there aren’t any more…. It’s been 2 years since I’ve seen a live roach in this house. Now I’m going to be tip-toeing around corners again.
This afternoon I went to run some errands and timed my snack with a stop into Great Harvest to see Matt!
I had a taste of Whole Wheat Cinnamon Chip with some peach jam
And I couldn’t resist a bite of Almond Scuffin!
And promptly spoiled my appetite for dinner!
Matt had to be in bed by 8:30 so he requested an early dinner. I hate making dinner when I am not hungry though! I decided to sip a virgin cocktail to make it more fun:
We ended up eating separately – him at 6:45 and me at 7:30 when I finally got a little hungry.
I can’t share this recipe though because I am saving it for the Mushroom Channel if they need another – it was good! A mushroomy, greeny soup.
We make a lot of thick soups, but every now and then I love a good brothy one.
I ended the meal with one of my aunt’s secret oatmeal cookies from the freezer.
Ever since I’ve been working on these guest posts. It’s going to be a really fun week while I am away!!!
(Gah, my iPhone just buzzed and I jumped a mile in the air!)
