Magazines, crumpets, eggs and kerosene ~ the little lioness

Magazines, crumpets, eggs and kerosene

After failing at my mission yesterday during the weekly grocery shop to buy eggs for a frittata (what?I need 8 eggs for it? surely I could remember to buy them) oh and for the lemon butter I was going to make with the massive amount of lemons I bought… and for the bikkies I’d make with the other half of the butter… I bought them tonight. With crumpets to go with the lemon butter (thought I’d give the Coles brand a try as they were less than half the price of the Golden crumpets). And kero.

And no, the kerosene is not to power my lamps, despite the power failure that cut my work day short. Ah, the saga that is Holder. The former primary school which we reside in, which after years of work is at a good point… though I think we miss the contant evacuations… mostly because of the call outs by the fire brigade ;) Who wouldn’t want to be the fire warden with those guys running around? It’s been awhile, so that’s why (even though there were horrible winds and rain blowing sings and trees down this afternoon) I was a little surprised to have the lights go out about 430pm. Our main fear? The sliding electric doors didn’t want to open! Early mark for all, though I’m hoping I didn’t have anything important open on my computer at the time!

So, I have eggs, and a night of cooking ahead. If I don’t get distracted.

(I’m hunting pirates)

    Well, I sympathize. The hurricane in Houston, Texas has kept me and many I know without power for four days now. Work finally got power yesterday and I’ve been doing updates, in between working my tail off, from there. Lots of pictures on Flickr!

    I think you guys had it little worse than us lol :p

    I think the “big” news story was a lady in Holder who had a tree fall on her house. And the scattered bins in the streets. I nearly hit a few of them heh.

    I have two questions:
    What _was_ the kerosene for?

    Like the new layout btw :) :)

    The kero was for Rish to clean ?the chain? on his bike.

    Watched the Vivid version of Pirates the other night. And spent the next 24 hours giggling over the Captain… and the way he says pirate. Apparently the sequel is out on October 27.

    I like this layout because I can read it :)
