Let’s Eat!

screen-shot-10-07-16-at-11-46-am The 13 YR old made these yummy mini cinnamin and plain muffins. (They were soooo good!) My mother also bought chocolate-covered almonds off some local kids who were selling them for their school fundraising and she would only give me some if I paid her; I actually had to buy them off her! Can you believe it? I told her that she was a gangster,and then when I wouldn’t give her the $$$$ until she handed over the goods she said that I was an even bigger gangster,and I told her, “I guess I learned from the best!”

She can cook(as in meals) she just can’t bake (as in desserts) and it’s the strangest thing, but I guess it’s better to be able to cook dinners and NOT desserts(and not everyone eats desserts,anyway) than the other way around.

She also saved her food the other day for after cadets but didn’t want the 21 YR old to take it as he’s notorious for stealing everyone’s food so she actually counted each and every item and put a note on it saying, “Do NOT eat! 5 chickens, 21 fries, a blob of stuffing.” It was the funniest thing.(I can’t believe she actually counted the fries! HA!)

screen-shot-10-07-16-at-01-27-pm The 15 YR old also made these home-made pumpkin pies for our Thanksgiving dinner. Pumpkin is my all-time favourite pie and actually the only pie I really even like. My mother ordered pizza yesterday as well, 2 of them actually, and whenever her and my hubby do they only ever get the kind my hubby likes( pepperoni and bacon) and never get the kind that I like( mushroom and green pepper) even though my mother also likes that kind( and it’s her fave. too, but now she smirks, “I like pepperoni and bacon,TOO!”) and it’s just more of them joining forces against me again,and re-affirming  that I don’t matter and I don’t count. She’s also inserted herself into every aspect of our lives and taken over everything from over-stepping boundaries with the kids to running the household she says is “picking up the slack” ( as if I’m “incapable”) but I feel like I’ve been replaced in my own life.

screen-shot-10-01-16-at-02-45-pm-001This is also me all snuggled up and warm, although just a couple of days ago it was 23 C for 2 days and I was still out suntanning, and they even had snow in Alberta! (gaaacckk!) but now it’s colder( 13 C) and feels more like fall, and after I’d smoked weed I “left” my body too and I was laying on my back looking up towards the sky and my view was like I was looking down from the top of my head,and everything had a “curved” look to it, like when you’re on a ship out in the middle of the ocean and you can see the curvature of the Earth.
