Hooray, Hooray!!!!

This warrants two hoorays !!! Ashley is sleeping (she's had a very busy week and a little bit of a late night last night so this is much needed catch up) and Syd just rode her little butt to a neighbors house to play for a while.

I have already done a fair amount of laundry, swept and mopped the floors, cleaned the kitchen and scrubbed the cook top (haven't done much cooking this week so how does that stuff get on there??) I have emptied trash and taken a shower, and here I am quietly enjoying all things fave online!!! Wooo. Rare time with no noise, just the peaceful sound of the dogs licking each others ears and a little froggy croaking outside, does he want to come in??? No...

I have been thinking a lot lately about the stuff I am missing from home and have a mental list of what I need to get when I next venture into the big city. Don't have much call for Brit shops here in Tiny town but if I can actually drag myself to Tallahassee there are a few options. I can get some Indian food at the Asian Cuisine place, they also have Branston Pickle (at a ridiculous price but they have it), I can usually get some Lemon Curd and HP sauce there too. I once bought poppadoms there but they have to be fried and I don't fry things at home (can't stand the smell) so they are out. I can go to World Market and get some chocolate, beer and tea bags. The essentials in life, ya know? They also have said yummy Indian stuff, so easy to throw a quick Korma or a Tikka together and the great thing is that Steve likes it to. Mmmm Marmite is also on the list although Steve cannot stand it and cries like a girl at the mere mention of it. The good thing about Marmite is that you only have to buy one little jar every ten years!! I can get it here at the local Publix so maybe I'll get some today and that will tide over my cravings for now until I cam muster up the energy to make the drive to Tally.

PS what the hell do I have to do to get a decent tomato around here????

Ugh! I don't like Marmite either. I think you probably have to be British to appreciate it :)

Seriously? You can't find a decent tomato? There's farmers everywhere...check out the farmer's market. I don't like tomatoes, so that's the best I can offer.
