Running Around

First of all, Happy Groundhog Day! =D

Yesterday we did a LOT of running around. You see, when you go to downtown Recife, you have to go to at least 10 different stores to find what you’re looking for! =D So we ended up spending the entire afternoon out! It was fun, but we were STARVING when we got home! So we got a quick bite to eat out, and then dad took us to the acai place again! I even brought my camera, but forgot to take pictures. =( Sorry!!!!!

To make up for it, here’s a pic of my cat:

What? You didn't get me any acai?

So today, I don’t even have a lot of school to do, which is super nice! =D All I really have left to do is work on my webpage design project, read Act IV of Julius Caesar and do an Algebra II lesson. Technically I’m supposed to have Algebra every day of the week, but I’ve got it worked out to where I take mondays off, do an Algebra lesson on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, study and do any extra work on Friday and then take the test! What can I say, I’m the queen of procrastination! =D

Oddly enough, our fridge started back up and the little red alarm light went off last night, but we’re still having someone come look at it, because who knows how long it’ll keep working.

In a little while, mom and I are heading to the grocery store because I am out of snacks and if I don’t have something to eat later on the world as we know it will end! Just kidding, but we really do need some stuff. I tag along because I can be helpful if I set my mind to it! =D We can walk to the store, and take a cab back if we have a lot of groceries. Of course, being in Brazil, our grocery store doesn’t always have everything we’re looking for. Like ground beef. or vanilla extract. or powdered sugar. We’ve had to make our own powdered sugar in the food processor because we made cinnamon rolls and needed glaze for them. =D It was like a science experiment!!!! And tasty, too!

How has your week been going so far?

What’s your favorite way to wind down after a super long day?

No cooking + giant fruit salad + family time= relaxation!!!! =D

Is there anything that you HAVE to have every day or you’ll miss it?

Chocolate. And snacks every two hours! Otherwise I turn into a grump! =D

Hope you have a great Wednesday!!!!

Special Member of the HC Family

Good morning, everyone!!!!!!!!!! Happy Wednesday!! Can you believe that tomorrow’s Thanksgiving? I know I can’t! This home ministry assignment has flown by! (I don’t know if I’ve said this, but we’re missionaries in South America, but we’re in the States until Jan.)

I’d just like to thank everyone who visited the blog yesterday! Seeing the number of visits literally made my day (again)!

So has anyone here ever been to Gigi’s cupcakes? They’re absolutely wonderful, and have tons of fun cupcake flavors. There are flavors of the day and seasonal flavors also. So far, my family has bought Midnight Magic Chocolate Chip, Wedding Cake, Peanut Butter Cup, Banana Cream Pie, Hunka Chunka Banana Love, Miss Princess, Raspberry (flavor of the day), and Blueberry (flavor of the day). And we still have a buy 3, get 1 free. These cupcakes cost like $3, but there is soo much frosting that we usually just quarter them and eat off of them for days. My personal favorites have been Peanut Butter Cup in first place and Midnight Magic Chocolate Chip, which is basicaly dark chocolate cake with chocolate chips baked in, topped with chocolate buttercream and more chocolate chips. Yum. Seriously though, I’d kill for the recipe for peanut butter buttercream that was used on the pb cup cupcake. It was fabulous!

Its looking like today is going to be a pretty quiet day. I am going to do extra school, both because tomorrow is Thanksgiving and because we’re going out of town Friday. This is the reason that I’ve been blogging earlier in the morning: I can take my time and write a post without feeling rushed, and I have something to do besides school when I’m the only one awake. So you all get to read my half-awake ramblings. Lucky, aren’t ya? Well, at least I don’t blog after my Algebra II lesson, you’d be getting grumpy, sarcastic posts instead of just the sarcastic ones.

Oh, I would like to introduce ya’ll to a veery special member of my family:

the HC cat!!!!!

the HC cat

 Cute isn’t he? Although not necessarily healthy, he is in fact a chocoholic! He prefers ganache over milk! Of course, he also likes peanuts and lunchmeat better than cheese, which just makes him plain weird. He’s about 2 years old and weighs 12-15 pounds, I think.

Do any of ya’ll have pets? If so, could you tell us a little more about them?
Oh! Whaddya think of the new header? Keep it or leave it?
Well, that’s about all I’ve got for now…….
See ya!
