Yesterday around 1p we made it back to NJ after an unplanned and whirlwind trip home to Michigan. We unpacked the car (because apparently it is completely impossible to go home and NOT come back with the car full of stuff).
In case you were wondering the contents of the car, we pulled out:
– 5 starts of raspberry bushes
– 1 apple spice cake
– 3 bushels of apples/pears
– 1 tall fan
– wooden filing cabinet
– lbs of ground beef
– gigantic bag o’ blueberries
– 3 cases of Vernor’s
– a box of canned peaches and pears
Since most of it’s consumable, and all of it was free, it’s not a bad haul.
It was raining when we got home, so we couldn’t plant the raspberry bushes immediately. Instead I decided we should tackle the house, which between the old roommate moving out and the new roommates moving in, into a different room (more on that later in the week!)– the house is a bit of a disaster.
The first step was to paint. So yesterday after a busy weekend at home and a long car drive back, we painted.
And then we went for sushi for dinner.
And then we finished painting.
And then I collapsed and read for a little while and fell asleep around 10p.
Kyle, who had made promises (when the day was young and his wife was upset), baked. For the first time in his whole life (I think). Because he is lovely and wanted to follow through despite the late hour.
So I woke up to cinnamon chocolate chip cookies the size of my head and a house that smells divine. It’s not a bad way to start tech.
