Cut Correspondence

I got a card in the mail from Debbie yesterday. It was so cool! She has a paper-cutting machine that does super-amazing designs.

Besides the card, she sent a Gus sticker. I love it! I will have to find a special place for it. Thanks, Debbie!

I was off yesterday. I spent the whole day at school grading, because I’m a procrastinating idiot. Stupid, stupid Brad…

I got my papers done though, and that feels good.

The vocabulary lists and tests I use in seventh grade are based on Greek and Latin roots. This weeks words were based on “mitt” – to send. I like the book test questions, because they use the words in sentences instead of just asking the definitions. But they are flawed, because they sometimes have more than one right answer.

This week, the confusing sentence was number 8:

The book writers meant for the student to answer “admit”. When caught doing something wrong, a smart person will “admit” to authority. But “submit” works too. And, as the student above shows, “omit” is a possible answer. Omit certain details, and the “smart” person will not get in as much trouble.

Sheesh! These book writers needed to have someone read through their questions for them.

When I was in the Philippines, I got something at the grocery store called Magic Sarap. It’s a seasoning for food. Since I’ve been trying to cook chicken for myself, I got some Magic Sarap, because “magic”!

I finally tried some last night. It was delicious! It’s so salty! Plus, it has MSG in it. The chicken was so good! The seasoning lived up to it’s name… (sarap means delicious). This seasoning is “Magically Delicious” Ha! Just like Lucky Charms. Hmmm… I wonder what Lucky Charms on chicken tastes like…

A Quarter-cup Short

I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies yesterday. I was pretty sure I had all the ingredients. I almost did. I was short on flour. I put in a little extra oatmeal, hoping that would make up for it.

It didn’t. The cookies are super flat. They’re weird-looking, but they taste ok. Maybe I’ll take some to church for Bible study hour…

Potted Plant

My coleus cuttings are doing so well on the kitchen table, I decided to try another plant there. I took a bit of my pilea peperomioides plant and put it in a pot I had on the lanai.

Now, besides having some nice outside plants, I have some inside ones too! Yay!

I still need to pot the coleus some time.
