I found a new hobby. Nut-cracking.
I mean that in the most literal sense. Almonds. Hazelnuts. Walnuts.
I had never used a nutcracker before. We’re not talking the dancing Tchaikovsky kind. We’re talking this kind:
In my mother’s neighborhood, there are many neighbors who exchange Christmas gifts with one another. Said neighbors often give things such as popcorn, cookies, or 2-liter bottles of Sprite. Mom gives people things like homemade fudge, or Chex mix made according to her dad’s delicious recipe. This year, someone gave Mom a bag of nuts…the unshelled kind.
I took it upon myself to crack some. And oh my goodness, I just found the greatest stress-reliever.
Now, I need to find a way to roast the shelled ones, or something, so that they taste decent. 🙂
In other news, I continue to have Supernatural marathons, with my brothers.
I seriously have NO IDEA why it took me so long to start watching this show.
Also, everyone should check out abebooks.com for all their book-buying needs. Today’s awesome story? I bought a textbook that, according to the campus bookstore website, cost $125. On abebooks.com, I got it for $41. Hooray!
Aaaand…that is my plug for the day.
Bye for now. 🙂
