Day’s Verse:
When you’re given a box of candy, don’t gulp it all down;
eat too much chocolate and you’ll make yourself sick;
And when you find a friend, don’t outwear your welcome;
show up at all hours and he’ll soon get fed up.

Proverbs 25:16-17

Today we did chores. These chores involved disturbing three and a half years of dust that have kicked my (apparent) dust allergies into high gear. Between bouts of sneezing and nose-blowing, I rub my intolerably itchy eyes and remind myself to consider dusting at least occasionally. Note to self: Never dusting is easy on the front end but worse on the back end, whenever that may be.

We also went to the Worcester Goodwill, the Worcester County Food Bank, my work, the CSA, and Roche Brothers. After all that driving around — and let me say, this Saturday it seemed like everybody had decided to take the same route we had — we rewarded ourselves with a final stop, this time at Uhlman’s ice cream.

There we splurged and shared a banana split.

Oh, my goodness.

Three scoops of ice cream — fudge ripple (supposedly, although we actually ended up with what I think was vanilla), vanilla, and strawberry — topped with hot fudge, whipped cream, strawberries, pineapple, and hot fudge. It was so delicious we spent the entire time raving about it. I doubt I’ve spent $7 more deliciously, possibly ever.

  1. yesterday darren and i spent 4 hours putting together ikea furniture, after spending several hours buying pots, pans, dish drainer etc (things he has apparently been living without for 2 years?). anyway today we rewarded ourselves with eggs and bacon cooked on his pans and eaten on his dishes at his brand new kitchen table. i may or may not be living vicariously since i dont have my own apartment.

  2. We made an entire packet of bacon. It seems to me that every time I ever eat bacon I don’t have enough. Like seriously, I don’t think I ever remember a time eating breakfeast and thinking “hhmm, I am satisfied with my bacon consumption now.”

    Either way we both ate 3 pieces of bacon and remaining pile is in a zip-lock bag in my fridge. Nora says I should wrap it around a hot dog and eat it.
