one way crosswalk

We noticed this arrow in the middle of the cross walk we use to get to our car a block away (parking in Rexburg is stupid... ask if you want more clarification).  its always amused me that its there, and i've often wondered why.

nothing but sidewalks and pavement

both Drew and I have been feeling a great lack of grass and growing things.  It doesn't really help that its the end of the growing season, and the leaves are starting to turn.

when we came to check on our poor tomato plant (basically all thats left of the garden except for some brocoli.), i was happily surprised to see even more tomatoes and some even starting to turn yellow/orange.  it was an exciting time.

I had dinner and went to the Relief Society broadcast tonight with my visiting teacher.We had a great time.  they served amazing refreshments after the broadcast, but because i was still full from the dinner we had, I brought it home to share.  the Redvines were brought especially because drew loves them so much.

Rexburg skyline

I'm sorry about the bar in the way, i didn't realize it was there until just now.  this is taken from our "fire escape" that doesn't lead to anywhere except for two stories above the ground.  i guess a broken ankle is better than being burned?

Carmel block

I made a cake today, and it had a carmel sauce to pour over the top. i discovered later that it makes a nice solid carmel block if not kept heated

Pasta server

we've been looking for one of these for a decent price for a long time (meaning something less than about $7).  we finally found one of these at the DI for 75 cents. :)

half the size

i went through one of the last boxes we have sitting around here, and was able to reduce the size by about half (possibly a little more :))

after going and applying at one of the many local call centers, i spent about an hour today in the campus gardens, just reading.  it was a wonderful (mostly) peaceful time.

a surprise

So I recently found an emulator that lets me play a Nintendo game on my computer (zelda: a link to the past, to be specific).  when I first started, i was telling drew that it was taking some getting used to.  He surprised me by getting this for me.  :)  it has been fun to use.

a day on the couch (and off my foot)

when i woke up this morning and could barely walk, drew made me promise to stay off my foot all day, to let it heal.  although it was hard, and i did absolutely nothing productive all day (i read, played a computer game, and watched some star trek), it did seem to help, and it has been feeling better all evening.

from the Civil Defense Caves

We decided to spend our labour day going caving.  it was a lot of fun.  we saw some cool geology, and overall had an enjoyable time (until i fell and messed up my ankle.  but don't worry, i walked out on it)

Sunday, September 4, 2011


when we went to the store yesterday, we found some of these on sale for a good deal.  we had never tried them, so we got a few and took them home.  a combination apricot plum.  first off, the name is impossible, and should be changed to soemthing that tells you more what it is (we decided we like the name Aprilum).  second, we decided they taste much better cold.  they have the texture of a plum, but taste a lot like an apricot (or, some of them were a bit more plumy than others)

overall, pretty good.  i would get them again (and might if they are still on sale :) )

our bathroom wall is leaking

We got up one morning, and our bathroom wall had been leaking just a little (the smaller streak to the left).  after showers, it was gone, but came back, with force.
