Friday Night Photos #117

I do know I say this beautiful a lot each week, however holy smokes, this week flew through. It’s Friday already?! It’s been rather an eventful week, to mention the least. We had a perfect weekend–Jerry and I went mini-golfing and to an break out room. Then on Monday, we let Eli play hooky from college in order that lets all pass to Cedar Point (Eli’s female friend were given the go-ahead as properly). I took not up to 5 photos! As I am getting older, I take fewer photos however a minimum of check out to absorb the moments as they’re taking place.

I misplaced (very badly) at mini golfing. Why do I by no means get a hole-in-one?! Because I all the time hit it within the rocks by some means. Jerry was once fearful about this shot as a result of if I made it, he would owe me $1 million. (Clearly, I did not make it from the rocks into the opening.)

This image is solely of Noah and me as we have been looking ahead to the others. They’d long past on a trip we did not need to, so we went on a distinct curler coaster whilst we waited. (Noah and I just like the very twisty-turny rides, however it is a giant no to the large hills. I am getting vertigo going up and down the hills and this can be a tremendous uncomfortable feeling.)

The simplest photograph of the 4 people

I used to be lovely pleased with myself for occurring a new-to-me coaster referred to as The Gatekeeper. I love rides which might be acquainted to me in order that I do know what to anticipate, and I used to be terrified to head on The Gatekeeper as a result of I did not know what it might be like. I all the time concern about 1) vertigo, and a couple of) will it reduce to rubble my again? Haha, I’m 100 years previous. Some of the older rides are bit tough, and I’m lovely certain I shrank a few inches after I went at the Mine Ride and the Blue Streak a number of years again.

On the best way house, Eli and Ava fell asleep within the again seat. I believe like that is the commonplace teen response after an afternoon at Cedar Point. I keep in mind how onerous it felt! (Well, it is nonetheless onerous; however each teenager round right here has a tale of an ideal lengthy, scorching day ready in traces at Cedar Point.) It’s funny–considering how impatient teenagers are, they’re all very affected person and well-behaved whilst ready 90 mins in line for a 2-minute trip. Several occasions, I famous that Jerry and I have been (actually) the oldest humans lets see in line. I by no means actually discovered that Cedar Point is most commonly crawling with youngsters.

After this sort of nice day, it was once greater than a little bit provoking to get a telephone name from Eli simply an hour or so later, pronouncing he’d been in an coincidence,

A pal of mine despatched me an image of her infant creating a “Jerry face”, so we took an image to ship again to him.

After the problems we had with the dishwasher, I realized that the silverware was once having a look actually uninteresting. I’ve by no means polished silverware in my life–I’ve simplest ever washed it within the dishwasher (or through hand). So, I learn on-line methods to get silverware to be blank and glossy once more. Basically, you line your sink with foil and blend baking soda, salt, and vinegar proper on it. Spread the silverware on it. Then upload boiling water to hide all of it.

It labored lovely properly. They no doubt glance a lot better than they did prior to.

Jerry shocked me with hobby fruit the day before today!!! I am keen on hobby fruit, however I have not noticed it anyplace since we have been in Punta Cana in 2014. These ones that Jerry discovered are tiny and they do not really feel ripe, so I do not know if they’ll be any just right, however I like that I am getting to check out them!

Yesterday, I made a double batch of seitan patties (more or less like hen breasts) to marinate and put within the freezer. I additionally made a quadruple batch of sesame sauce and put it in those 8-oz jars. I love having sauce within the freezer, so I will be able to simply pull it out and warmth it up for a quick dinner–rice with tofu, veggies, and sesame sauce–so just right!

If someone is , that is my recipe (this one is doubled; I used this recipe two times for the jars above). One jar is a superb measurement for a block of tofu (or identical quantity). (You simply shake the entirety in a mason jar, then pour right into a pot and produce simply to a boil, then decrease warmth till the sauce is thickened.)

½ cup water
1/2 tsp. salt (dangle off in this if you wish to style prior to salting)
2 Tbsp. corn starch
2 Tbsp. maple syrup (or brown sugar)
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1/4 tsp. floor ginger
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. overwhelmed pink pepper flakes (I exploit about 3/4 tsp as a result of we love it highly spiced)

I laughed after I noticed this tweet… I no doubt keep in mind the owl pellets!

I completely love this pair of denims, however the giant gap within the knee was once rising each time I stepped into the pants and stuck my foot within the gap. Also, after I went to storage gross sales a couple of weeks in the past with my oldsters, my knee bumped towards the trailer hitch on my dad’s truck–and left a large brown spot. It did not pop out within the wash, so I figured I’d simply make the opening a little bit larger and patch it. I simply used darkish denim at the within after which, as a result of I actually did not really feel like getting out my stitching gadget, I used embroidery thread to connect the patches.

I additionally took within the waist with darts (backside proper). It used to mention “AMERICAN EAGLE”, and now it simply says AME. These are closely altered, however I like those denims! The button fly and mid upward push cause them to best possible.

I fell down the denim embroidery rabbit gap on Pinterest yesterday–people do the good issues with embroidery thread! I need to check out one thing amusing, however it is too intimidating to even know the place to begin. I’ll check out working towards on a scrap piece of denim.

And in spite of everything… Jerry and I’ve been taking part in Trivia Crack once more. Remember when this was once standard a number of years in the past? I’ve NOT ONCE beat Jerry! He’s tremendous just right at minutiae, and I’m obviously now not. I nonetheless have amusing making an attempt to respond to the questions, even though. And one in all this present day, possibly I’ll get fortunate and in reality beat Jerry. (We additionally play Boggle, and he is by no means beat me at that! We every have our strengths and weaknesses.)

And that is all I’ve were given. I’m dog-sitting for Nathan this weekend; I’m going to convey Joey over there to hang around together with his cousin 😉 Have a perfect weekend! xo
