Thursday, Sept 6

Home fellowship was canceled tonight, so we spent some quality time with the PS3 YouTube app – watched a bunch of coffee videos and the 14 episodes released so far of H+.

I made iced Americanos at breakfast – they were good enough and the shots are going well.

This grinder doesn’t have enough steps so we’re grinding the same way every time.

Terra made me a straight shot this afternoon – the maiden voyage of that cool demi someone gave me on a job with Noel…


I rearranged the breakfast nook. We have big plans for it but so far, we hate it.

We got some green plates from the dollar store that work rather nicely and I changed up the centerpiece…



We absolutely love our dining room set.

Terra went to the DOL WorkForce place to apply for some jobs. Once we come up with money for Wesley to go to the SAFE program, I will begin a search as well.

We lost the key to the Lexx.

We got a puzzle from the thrift store – one of those mystery story puzzles and, this Friday night, we plan to work on it in the breakfast nook and listen to my old tapes of Ruby 3 – she’s never heard it before.

We picked up a couple Halloween decorations – can’t wait for Halloween month to start.  We’re debating whether to try to decorate the while house or just focus on certain areas.

Wishing the weather would turn cooler so we’re in the mood for cappuccinos – we need to start practicing our milk frothing.

Didn’t have quiet time tonight because we were YouTube’ing.

Wesley did his three days of being grounded (first time we’ve ever tried that with him) so he gets to return to normal life tomorrow.  Grounding consisted of confinement to his room with no music or movies, no watching hot air balloons in the morning, no quiet time with us.  He hated it so mission accomplished :P  But he did it with no tantrums our anything.  We explained the what and why daily to try to ensure he understood.

We think Saturday for our spns (slumber party night substitute) we’re gonna agree on a Pinterest recipe we’ll make together and then sit on the couch and continue the romance novel I started reading to her on the last spns night we had two weeks ago.

We need to start having people over now that we have places for people to sit and a working coffee bar.

My sleep debt is currently at 7 hours, 24 minutes – pretty typical for me. Been thinking of changing my sleep requirement to 7 hours instead of 8. I’m always tired but not THAT tired.

Wednesday, Sept 5

I made iced coffee with espresso shots (“depth charges”) this morning.  It’s good to have the new grinder.

Stayed caught up on laundry.

Swept the rocks of the sidewalk.

Did some long overdue video editing.

Made a deer roast in the new crock pot with frozen mixed veg and tater tots.  Served with Texas toast.

Found out I have to turn off wifi on this phone to send/receive mms.  Not happy about that.

Still behind in my Bible reading plan.

Terra brought home a couple cool pots from Thrift Town that look nice on the new table.

Terra made iced lattes this afternoon – her first try of the new grinder.

We watched Glengarry Glen Ross in HD on Netflix – her first time.  I brushed Terra’s hair during most of it.

She got news on how her mileage will work from now on and it’s not good news.

Day two of Wesley being grounded – his first time in life, ever.

I’m so ready to have some guests for coffee.  Need some good beans.

Created a “somewhere” category on Pinterest for pics of cool places I see.

Came up with the idea of doing a daily recap blog post and giving up on a Lifestream.  This was prompted by seeing that Twitter is not going to support rss much longer.  But I’ve been wanting to simplify my homepage for a long time anyway.

Didn’t get a shower today, ew.

Still awake at midnight.  This not sleeping regularly has been going on ever since I stopped working.

Called for info on SAFE program for Wesley so I can go back to work and we can’t exactly afford it.  Hmmm…

This hot weather seems to be going on forever.  We’re both so ready for fall.
