Packages From the Husband

Before I go off about everything along with my day, I would like to thank all of my "followers" for reading.  I've increased by a couple of people, and thanks for visiting!

So today I got a package in the mail from Jesse.  Now, I knew he was sending me a package (the last five days this was mentioned in most of our conversations..."did you get my package yet??"), and it takes over a week to get here, so I kept telling him to give it some time!  So today I got this bulging box (I should've taken a photo of it, it was hilarious!) full of goodies.  Well I guess "full" probably isn't the right word...Maybe overfilled.  Nonetheless I got a "mink" (it's like polyester or something, no I'm not an animal killer), a coffee mug with a flag on it, three movies (one of which haven't hit DVD here in the states), a scrubs top (don't ask), and a piece of "headgear" he got as a gift from his interpreter.  Even as though none of this stuff is going to be used that often, it's just nice to get something from him.  I love that boy!

For dinner mom is making a Salmon Chowder, I bought a mix with some canned smoked salmon at the Food and Gift Festival at the Tacoma Dome back in October.  I'll let you guys know how it goes, this company has a website and has some excellent smoked salmon!

Oh another magazine I bought was from The Mixing Bowl, which has some excellent stuff in it.  There are some interesting banana bread recipes in there that I'm going to try.  They even have a peanut butter banana bread and a strawberry banana bread in this book.  I would absolutely love to send some of this to Jesse, but I think that it wouldn't make it over there without mold on it.  Haha.  So maybe leave time, I guess.  If I try these (and I probably will) I will post and let you know if they're good.

So that is all for me today, another two more days of work before a stretch off.  Hopefully I can get what I need to have done in that time!

Have a great week,
