|All ready for the post office!|
Saturday, started bright and early. I had rented a moving van to take my old Mattress and Box Spring to my parent's house. This set was a full and I had purchased a queen sized sometime this summer so the old set just hung out in my bedroom. Really attractive I know. So with the help from Becky, we loaded the van and took it home. Now I no longer have to sleep on a lumpy twin on the weekends!
Later on in the day, I sent my parcel to my Nerd Wars Swap recipient. I was so pleased that I had a ton of stash to make everything that the budget was spent on goodies!
Anyway, we need sour cream so after I left dinner I stopped at the store to get the sour cream. I bought the container and got back in my car and.....
backed into another car. My first accident after 10 years of driving. I really had no clue what happened at first. I was moving pretty slow but my back bumper is all scrapped up and the other drivers car was equally scrapped. So we exchanged information and shaken, I went home.
I told my dad and then called my insurance company to submit the claim. In the mean time Jenn came over. I had no desire to bake at that point and neither did she.
We talked about her boyfriend problems include the new guy she met the night before. She told him through text that we were baking and he asked for a picture. At this point, we had no intention of baking so I did what any friend would do and threw flour at her to show that "She had been baking" and stood her next to the stand mixer with a spatula.
|And we are stirring the fake batter!|
|Nothing to see here just some supplies for cookie making|
So snowmen and tree were the shape of the day! Then while they texting back and forth, Jenn and I were worried that he would want to see the final product. Since there were no cookies to falsify, I googled and took a picture of a picture on my tablet.
|Why yes we made thee....|
The trick was to find the cookies that really did look home made and the lighting that was closer to something that could be obtained with a phone camera.
Really, we had a great conversation while figuring out these pictures and I felt like I was 16 again. As much as relationships can be challenging, exciting or heartbreaking. I am so lucky to have such a great friend in Jenn. I hope that we are still doing goofy things like this when we are old and senile, because then we will have a better excuse for why we do this crazy stuff.
