HSKS 8 game 2

Good Luck and Have Fun!!
Let the anagram solving begin!
In the second volume of the HP books by JK Rowling, The (#1)Chrome Cab Festers, we continue to learn the incredible adventures of Hogwarts student (#2) Parry He Trot and his friends (#3) Oral Weensy and (#4) Angering Her More. Belonging to the house of (#5) Dry Off Grin, they attend Defense Against the (#6) Ark Darts taught by Wizarding celebrity (#7) Oracle Dorky Light, a none-too-bright fellow who cannot even handle pixies!

In The (#8) Chrome Cab Festers, we also meet Dobby a (#9)See Flu Oh for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10) Parry He Trot to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11) My Molten Grain, shows (#12) Parry He Trot and (#13) Oral Weensy an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air!

Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14) Parry He Trot finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15 Mold Voter) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 Crux Rho) and saves the sister of (#17) Oral Weensy, (#18) Gayly Nine Sew!!!

Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19) Oracle Dorky Light unintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20) Snob In A Froze Parka…

CSA week 7

Last week's share was huge again!! We had Mushrooms, sugar snap peas, regular peas, cauliflower, peppers, more beets, romaine lettuce, red new potatoes, mint, zucchini, cucumbers, and I'm sure I'm missing something. They also gave us extra cucumbers, potatoes, and some flowers! The peonies are just gorgeous, and love the pink little flowers in with them. Brightened our house this week, for sure!

Overall, I'm thrilled with this CSA. We get tons of food, and it's all incredible.

Here's a pic of some potatoes I made last week- fried them up in some olive oil, with the onions and green pepper, salt and pepper. SO much flavor, so tender and yummy, and just fresh.

csa weeks 3-6

I've missed af ew weeks posting pics/info on the CSA! Here is what we got week 3:

Lettuce, spinach, rhubarb, strawberries, mint, asparagus, spring onions, and peas! Yummy salads, made another rhubarb/strawberry crisp, some mojitos, and sauteed the peas with olive oil, a bit of butter, salt and pepper.

Week 4 I missed pics of week 4. I know there were more lettuces, peas, strawberries, spring onions, and mint, tomatoes and mushrooms.

Week 5: again, missed pics. or they aren't off the camera yet...not sure which. Definitely more lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, pak choi, 2 kinds of peas, turnips, white new potatoes, strawberries, and something else I'm sure I'm forgetting. Oh, the flowers- they had extras and gave them to us. Yay!

Week 6 was more lettuce, 2 kinds of peas, beets, more turnips, red new potatoes, green pepper, onions, strawberries and maybe more- don't remember again. This one I know I have a pic of on my camera.

So far we're really enjoying getting fresh veggies and fruit every week. Loving the quality of the produce- made the potatoes with the onions and pepper the other day, and they were so tender and delicious.

Happy June.

Wow, is it really June already?! June has always been my favorite month- since my B-day is on the 25th. I can't believe I haven't posted in SO long! Lots has been going on here. Lots of yarny news coming, so stay tuned! But for now...

I've joined the HSKS 8 Summer camp, and I'm SO excited about that! It's going to be a blast. Looking forward to spoiling my pal rotten, and getting to know everyone in my cabin.

Here is my week 1 summer game!
Week #1: New to Camp!

Part 1: "What's in your trunk?"
elastics for my hair- to pull it back
extendable ears
earplugs (in case someone snores)
earbuds (for my muggle music player)
earl grey tea (for my morning pick-me-up)
everready batteries (you never know when you'll need batteries!)
everlasting gobstopper (I just watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)
easter candy

Part 2: WINGO
Still working on this...






Part 3: Get to know your pals:

My spoilee is Nosheepforchelle, and she had so many projects that I loved it was hard to pick one. BUT, I selected her Ishbel because I love the color- a deep blue, and I just finished my Ishbel, so it was fun to see how she did hers. Love it!
Jellybeaninc is my spoiler, and she has some great Twilight socks in purples (my favorite color!), which I just love. Had to comment on them.
