Fragmented Freewrites- November 6, 2009

This week went by alarmingly fast. I can't believe it's already Friday! Thanks to Mrs 4444 for graciously hosting us each and every week.

On Tuesday I went to my NAWC meeting and took these tortilla roll-ups. They were good, I can wholeheartedly recommend them.

I got wildly excited when I walked into the supermarket and they have ORANGE sweet potatoes now! A few weeks ago when I was looking all I found were white ones at the stores. White sweet potatoes! Can you believe it? For a country that lives and breathes everything orange, I cannot believe it took them this long to jump into having orange sweet potatoes easily available. Now let's just hope they actually KEEP them in their assortment. This store has a nasty habit of getting in good stuff and discontinuing it SHORTLY afterwards. Fingers crossed!

I still need to embroider some mouths, but I'm probably done with sock monkeys until I get a new load of socks. I posted a couple yesterday, and here's the motherload!

My new minions!

I've made some concrete goals about getting my inburgerings portfolio (proof of "integration" basically) completed. The blood bank has a volunteer position that I need to go ask about to complete some of the things. I hate putting myself out there for stuff like that, and it's even worse when I'm uncomfortable trying to speak coherently in another language. I know I can do it, but if I have a heart attack from anxiety in the process it's a little bit of a problem!

I think having a warm drink keeps my feet warm. They were freezing straight off before I had a cup of tea. I need to remember this!!

Delta is making me have rage. Since they ruined merged with Northwest I've somehow gotten on their "please spam me every 12 seconds" list. Even if I unsubscribe they're STILL sending me crap. Boo Delta, BOO!

Speaking of unsolicited spam, if you haven't seen my "Ask Me Anything" post, go read it and leave a comment!

Friday Fragments?

I make a very similar roll-up, but instead of putting it in a tortilla, I roll it all into the thinly sliced ham. It's awesome!

Delta has issues, for sure. You are not alone. Enjoy your weekend, my friend!!

I love those sock monkeys! I'd love to learn how to make them myself. Are you selling them? They're so cute!!

White sweet potatoes? That is so weird!!

:D

Wow. That's one heck of a spiffy bag for a potato. You must now make sweet potato pie. Also, I think "smaak" is my favorite dutch word. It sounds like they're saying "this tastes so great it will knock you sideways! POW! BANG!"

Those monkey's are soooo cute!! I love, love, love em!!! Are you selling them on Esty or anywhere? Yo0u should be.

Ooh I'll have to look at the AH for the sweet potatoes. I get them at the black market, but I always have to check and see if they are the orange or the white. I don't care for the white ones as much and i LOVEE The orange ones. YUMMY :)

How much did you pay for the kilo at ah?

It's been ages since I've gotten to visit with you on your blog, so that's why I've just bombarded you with many comments :)

You could have a whole new audience for sock monkeys - Mute Monkeys. No mouths, so sounds! For those folks that think their monkeys are a bit too loud. haha.

We have baked (orange) sweet potatoes almost every week-I'm so glad you found some!

OMG-Your sock monkeys are WONDERFUL! I just love 'em! Do you have an etsy shop? What will you do with all of those?!

Please remind me why you need proof of integration??
