Saturday was a really good day. Before I went to sleep on Friday night, I set my alarm to wake up about eight hours later. But then I picked up this new book I'm reading, "How Starbucks Saved My Life: A Son of Privilege Learns to Live Like Everyone Else" and had trouble putting it down. When my eyes could no longer stay open, I got up out of bed and turned my alarm off. I knew that was a potentially bad decision, but how often do I get to just sleep until my body is well rested? Not too often. After some crazy dreams, I finally got up at 12:52 today (Saturday). Crazy, I know. In my defense, I didn't go to bed until around 2:30. Though, that still means I got ten hours of sleep. Ahh, whatever. That's not the point. In fact, I don't even know why I'm writing about this. Moving on.
While putting away my clean dishes, I realized I was tired of being frustrated at the way I store things in my kitchen. Over the next two hours or so, I took most everything out of the pantries and started over. I was given a lot of things when I first moved in (as I had nothing). And now that I'm starting to buy more things on my own or just acquire more; it was getting out of control. I love my kitchen but some of the storage space just doesn't make sense. I put the things I never use in there. Next time someone is having a garage sale, please let me know. I'll donate to the cause.
I was listening to a Church of the Highlands sermon by Joe McGee while I cleaned and organized. I don't know if you've ever heard of him or heard him speak, but boy that man can bring the Word. I can burn you a copy of his sermons if you're interested, just let me know. It took me a while, but boy the final result was amazing. Though, hours later, when looking for a container to put leftover dinner in, I had trouble finding something to use. Maybe I need to rethink some of the placement of items.
OK, I feel like this post is super boring. I don't have some big revelation or anything, just rambling about my day.
My friend JWW came over for a girl's night. I made dinner and dessert; which, both were fabulous! I'm not just tooting my own horn either. I mean, I'm a good cook, but these were incredible! People joke with me as I'm seemingly incapable of reading a recipe. Somehow I always mess something up. The same was true with the dessert, though thankfully, it really didn't matter. We had "Fast Fruity Delight". It was quite delightful as well!
I used blackberries. Yummy!
Mmmmm Mmmmm Good!
We had dinner first though, Saucy Mexican Chicken. It was super easy to make and was incredibly delicious. *pats myself on the back* If you'd like the recipe, just let me know.
...served over a bed a rice.
After dinner, JWW and I played a game of Scrabble. We love to play Scrabble together; wish we could do it more often! I started the game with "Zap", 28 points, but it stunted the growth of the game for quite a while. We had a lot of fun and JWW won!! 235 to 197.
We were going to play Dance Praise (exactly like Dance Dance Revolution, but with Christian music), but we ended up watching The Proposal instead. Funny movie!
Whichs leads me to now... 1:31am and because I slept most of the day, I'm not sleepy for bed now. Hmm. Guess I'll find something constructive to do, like go read!
