So far this weekend has been pretty busy. After going out to breakfast, I spent most of the afternoon baking cookies. Not for any special reason, but just because I wanted to. I’ve been on a baking jag lately, and have baked something every weekend for the last three or four weeks. Today I made about 14 dozen cookies (yeah, I know, I’m insane)-soft molasses, peanut butter, and chocolate chip. We gave some to our friends who live next door, and I have a feeling both Craig and I will end up taking some in to work. There’s literally a ton of cookies. Anyway, after that, we went out to pick up subs for dinner from DiBella’s and also popped by Barnes & Noble so I could grab a few books. We watched this week’s Tivoed epi of Gray’s Anatomy while we ate. Poor Christina. Yay Izzy! And oh! What about the two utereuses??!! Gods, I don’t even want the one I’ve got, I can’t imagine having two!!!! *grimaceshiver*
Last night, we had dinner with friends. Yummy chicken parm with pasta, and brownies for desert! Afterwards, we played Scattergories & hung out. It was a blast!-Thanks, Jen & John! We really need to do more things like that. Craig and I have become such recluses, all snugged in and nesty at home. I don’t really keep in touch with any of my single “go out” friends anymore. We just don’t have anything in common at this point in our lives, ya know? And it’s hard to meet other couples our age that are unencumbered by children. I would absolutely love to have a small circle of close girlfriends, but most women my age who are married have young children, and it just interferes too much with trying to maintain an active friendship, having to arrange a babysitter, not being able to do anything spur of the moment or spontaneous. Blah.
If you’re into ghosts, and EVP, and stuff like that, I happened across a neat wordpress blog in my travels today-Dark Walls. He’s got some pretty neat clips to check out. The Amityville stuff really fascinates me. Very creepy. *nods*
Not much on the agenda for tomorrow really. Maybe a little cleaning, and a trip to the park to hike with the dog. Of course that depends on the weather. It’s been really cold lately, but today was sunny, and would have been perfect despite the chill, but neither Craig nor I seemed to wanna make the effort in that direction.
Tuesday night I’m headed to Mystic Moon with my friend Cynthia to get our past lives done by Julie. I’m kinda pysched, it’ll be fun. We’ll probably go out to dinner too, and make a girls night out of it.
Rented Mission Impossible 3 & An American Haunting for the weekend, but haven’t watched them yet. We got these awesome free coupons from Cinemark for Blockbuster-each one includes 2 free movies (includes new releases), 2 free 20oz sodas, and a free tub of popcorn. *g* We used one today. Ya know it helps-we spend so much money and time at Blockbuster renting movies, we should own stock in the company by now.
I’m excited to watch An American Haunting as it’s based on a true haunting (the Bell Witch) in Tennessee. I told Craig I’d do some research and see how far it is from where his parents live in TN, and maybe when we’re there we can check it out. I also believe The Blair Witch Project was based, in part, on the story of the Bell Witch, but I’m not 100% certain.
I think Craig is watching the tail end of the Sabres game, so I’m gonna pop down and grab my recipes, and then maybe post a couple of the cookie recipes I used today. They all kick ass, but I would have to say that the peanut butter one is the bestest!!
