This past week you could catch me:
Baking cupcakes, cookies, and bread.
I made these into the shape of a wedding dress.
And mini rainbow-colored cupcakes. They were so adorable!
I also made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars, along with my sister’s request of “Pink Cookies.”
But my favorite one has been my Great-Harvest-Inspired Honey Whole Wheat Bread. And yes, it tastes just like it but costs a lot less. Perfect for this money-pinching time in society. Don’t worry, I’m working on the post right now. π
Seeing cool shaved ice trucks! Earlier this week my sister heard Jamaican music outside, ran to the window and spied this shaved ice truck driving around our neighborhood!
Excited, she hurriedly called me from upstairs to come and see the new truck in our neighborhood. When I got downstairs, I couldn’t believe my eyes! It was a paradise on wheels, playing Jamaican jamborees and serving colorful ices! It was legit! Simply the coolest shaved truck EVER! π
Shopping at thrift stores. I got 14 new skirts and 1 blouse for only $70!!! Gosh I love thrift stores. β€
And I found the Keira Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice at Target for only $5.
I HAD to get it. I β€ Darcy.Β
And getting stuff done that has to happen whether I want to or not… I went to the oral surgery center at the military AFB Monday morning for a wisdom teeth evaluation. They took me right in, got some x-rays, explained the process, and scheduled me to have all my wisdom teeth removed on the 28th, this coming Monday!
We went to the grocery store yesterday and picked up a couple of things for next week after my surgery. Right now I have organic soy-milk, almond milk, green smoothies, water, broth, soy yogurt, butternut squash soup, and applesauce. I’m guessing I’ll be living on a lot of liquids next week, with more creamy stuff later in the week or the week after. I’ll see how I feel after the procedure next week.
Any tips for when I have my wisdom teeth removed? Anything I should know before the procedure Monday morning?
I could use with all the help I could getβ¦Β I don’t do well with needles or surgical stuffβ¦ And they’ll be giving me an I.V. and a pill to make me less aware of what is going onβ¦ Mine are all still underneath my gums and haven’t erupted at all, so I don’t know how long the surgeon will take doing it. I know I can’t use straws and have to use a lot of mouth wash since I can’t brush my teeth until the gums heal. I don’t know a lot other than that.
With lots of hugs,
