I'm so glad my monthly shopping is over. I'm having fun figuring out what to make that will allow me to make the most room in fridge and freezer.

Right now, I'm skinning some large lima bean while watching a marathon on HGTV on building tiny houses. So clever!

The large lima beans are butterbeans. The resulting soup will be smooth and buttery. No lumps.

Skinning them is a long and painstaking process, but does't require much hands on time except for the actual skinning, which is easily accomplishes with some good TV to enjoy during the process.

It takes at least a full 24 hours of soaking for all of the skins to loosen, but worth it in the end so that the finished dish doesn't have those tough skins.

Back to my tiny houses marathon and the second half of the lima beans.
Here I thought I was the only one who thinks those tiny houses are awesome cool.People have been extremely creative in how they design and live in them.When we retire I want one built like a Hobbits den.But I'm a Gullum fan.Lurking in places nobody wants to be in.

Just the word "crawlspace" makes me think too! Wasn't there a Steven King book named that?

We were expecting one of DH's cousins and a friend to stop by late tonight. Just got a call, they're still in Nebraska, so late would mean 2:30 am. We agreed that's a bit too late. Thankfully, they'll stay at their hotel tonight and pop by tomorrow instead.

The words 'crawlspace' and 'lurk' seem to go together, don't they?

DH's IPhone went wonky while we were on our road trip, not that I care, I don't use it, but it annoyed him.
So when we got home, I researched online as to the problem, I even called the local "Genius Bar" and got the response, "Um, you should just buy a new phone." WHAT?! NOPE! That #@&%$*{ is not quite 2 years old, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
Further digging uncovered that it was a simple fix, replace the battery.
Yeah right!
So I ordered a DIY kit for $20USD which included the battery and all the tools necessary. The box arrived this afternoon, and I just finished the job.
Can I tell you how nerve racking that was!?
But I am proud to state that DH's dang phone works just peach swell now.

Now that's just plain creepy.

Sweet dreams, maybe. Eventually.
