Cyber... Tuesday?

Looks like a lot of the sales from yesterday have been extended.  When I have time today I'll post some more links, I just didn't have time yesterday as it was crazy busy in the office with just two of us.

I made use of a Williams-Sonoma GC I had yesterday with their free shipping on everything I was able to grab a few things which was great since I never get to the mall (mainly because I hate it).

Tis the season for 30% off BassBuds High Performance Earphones

Jeez the weeks have been just Flying by lately!!  I blinked my eyes and it was time to go grocery shopping for Thanksgiving and for the first time in Years I made Thanksgiving dinner and it was GREAT!!  I made dinner for the two most important guys in my life, my kid and my amazing BF.  We cooked together, we feasted and then we napped until my cousin called for me to go and babysit her little ones so she and her hubs could go and do that black Friday shopping madness that I want absolutely no part of.

So, Bassbuds you say?  I mean it's right up there in the title, isn't it?

I got a pair of Limited Edition white ones.. They're so pretty!  And the sound quality is AMAZING!!

Snovember This is so not cool

Since the weekend they've been predicting a Nor'easter to come through NY.. like we needed that after Superstorm Sandy... but since nobody can control the weather in it came.  Yesterday morning it was 29° when I left my house and by the time I got to work it had started to rain, by 11, it was snowing  -_-  The snow started to get progressively heaver as the day went on and when the ladies came back from lunch I decided it was time for me to get out of here since I'm still taking public transportation until I can find an open  gas station in my area and fill up my Jeep.

We lost power for a bit last night but luckily it came back up after an hour or so but school was cancelled for today by a phone call from the principal around 10.

This morning I got dressed and put my boots on to get ready to walk to the bus stop once again and there was a good 6" of snow on the ground.

This is NOT a winter wonderland.. at all.

It was a very heavy, slushy snow and the poor trees can barely handle it.. there were more lines down as I was walking along.  We definitely need a break from this crazy weather.

I made a pot of chicken soup the other night to use up the rest of the chicken I had bought before it spoiled and it'd been sitting in the fridge until last night when I was so cold after walking home from the bus stop because there's no gas around my area at all and my Jeep's been sitting parked by my house for 2 days now and I'm taking the train to work.. it's just what I've gotta do for now.

.......But anyway... the chicken soup..

I went and heated up the soup last night, picked out the bones and thought to myself this soup need Dumplings... so I headed to the recipe box...


1 Cup All Purpose flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs butter
1/2 C Milk

1. Stir together Flour, Baking Powder, Sugar & Salt in a medium size bowl.  Cut in butter until mealy and stir in milk until you've got a soft dough

2. Drop by spoonfuls into boiling soup/stew/broth cover and simmer for 15 minutes.  Do not take off the lid while it's cooking!

Soft fluffy dumplings :)

Jeez it's a little dusty around here.. sorry about that.

This has been a bit of a chaotic week with Sandy barreling through NY, leaving a good part of my area without power for days.  I was down for 2 1/2 days and finally got Cable and internet back on Thursday night but at my office we're still without phone and internet service.  

There are lots of huge trees down all over the place and horrific flooding in many areas.

I'm here.. I'm safe and all's good over here for the most part.  Once trucks can get out and fill our stations with fuel and our grocery stores with food things will be sort of normal around here.  I'm guessing by the middle of next week things should be better, grocery shopping yesterday was weird to say the least.  I've never seen grocery store shelves empty before O_o

I'll be around more soon.. Thanksgiving is coming up (yikes, already!) and it's going to be Christmas cookie time before ya know it.

If you were affected by Sandy at all, stay safe, be strong and anyone who wasn't affected by Sandy if you've got the means to help in any way it's greatly appreciated. whether it's a monetary donation, food, or clothing lots of people lost everything in this superstorm that barreled through.
