Wednesday, June 29, 2011

First off I'd love to wish my godchild/neice Kadance Marie a very happy 4th birthday!! I hope you love the presents we sent to you and wish even more that we could be there to celebrate with you!!!

So today is the first day we've gotten a plane in since the 14th!!! They brought over a good amount of mail but not even half the amount that they have sitting over in Dutch Harbor!! I got some movies in and my prenatal vitamins but still waiting for the rest of everything to come in!! I did get in Roni's Hello Kitty order!! She got in some really cute HK Vans (shoes) and a couple bathing suits for when we go on Vacation!! I'm excited every day is another day closer to enjoying a relaxing vacation!!

Ohhh I recieved my grades for lessons 1 & 2 of my ENGL 111 course!! I got a 88% (B) on lesson 1 and 96% on lesson 2!! I am currently working on getting lesson 3 completed and sent in before Monday!! That made me excited know that I did great on the first couple lessons!!!

Nothing much has been happening around here. The island is slowly but surely turning green. The berry plants have sprouted flowers and some are already shedding their petals and turning into small berries that will ripen into sweet bites of heaven!! The fish haven't really shown up like they did 5 years ago... so it's been a slow season for salmon once again. Hopefully I get some this year, I just used up the last of my salted salmon in the latest batch of pickled fish I whipped out!! So my buckets are empty and ready to be filled again!!

I can't believe how fast this month went by!! Next thing I know I'm going to be in Anchorage waiting to give birth!! I will be 8 weeks pregnant this Saturday!! I haven't experience any morning sickness like I did when I was preggo with Roni... so that makes me think if I'm having a boy this time around. I do have the usual heartburn though, so I'm stocked up on Tums!! I can't believe that they don't make Rolaids anymore!! I can't find them anywhere!! I'm thinking it's time to start looking at the next size up pants/jeans.... when I got pregnant with Roni I had lost almost 60 lbs prior to getting preggo, so all my clothes were big on me to begin with. This time I'm not so lucky and I know here soon my clothes won't be fitting me anymore. Wish it was easier to shop for clothes other than online!!

I joined Netflix a couple weeks ago. I love how fast they are able to send out my movies when they recieve the one I just watched! Just wish the weather would let us get planes as fast as they ship! I tried to use their instant on your computer/blu ray player option but the internet here is way too slow to deal with that! I was hoping that it would work but I guess not... I love how they offer bluray DVD's too!! This should be cheaper than buying the movies myself!! At least I hope so, at least they offer a 30 day free trial!!

We went to Dutch Harbor on the ferry this past weekend. Got some shopping done, loaded up on Gerber lil crunchies in Veggie dip flavor for Veronika, she just can't get enough of those things!! We also picked up anything else we saw that we needed. I'm always picking up those Starbucks double shots energy + coffee in vanilla flavor, even though I know I need to start cutting all caffeine out of my diet for my growing fetus! We tried to pick up a new broom - we paid for one - but the hubby completely forgot about it and left it at the checkout stand and he didn't remember about it until we were half way home on the ferry!! I couldn't believe he forgot it! Oh well, there is 12.00 down the drain!! I love to load up on fruits for Veronika and me to munch on!! I also picked up some ice cream since I've been craving some Rocky Road Icecream (same ice cream I craved when preggo with Roni)!! I picked up some heavy whipping cream to make my own icecream too!!!

Tonight we are going to cook up some burgers and fries, then I'm going to whip out a couple sea gull egg custard pies before my eggs go bad!! I wanted to make a pumpkin pie too but I think I'll wait on making that!! I also want to make some banana bread!! The damn company that we order from for the store sent us yellow bananas instead of green ones... so by the time they got here they are all getting dark and "bruised" - perfect for banana bread!!

Oh I also picked up my Scentsy Bring Back My Bar samples from Penair Cargo when we went over to Dutch!! I am in love with a bunch of them!! I can't wait to load up on them on Friday (they are only available in the month of July). My top 5 would have to be Red Delicious, Grape Granita, Watermelon Patch, Orange Dreamsicle and Root Beer Float!! Next would have to be Fresh cut cantaloupe, banana flower, coconut palm, irish cream and exotic vanilla!! There are only 20 scents total that will be back exclusively in the month of July! I am taking a list of orders for locals here in the village and will get an order out on Friday!! So if you'd like me to order them for you ASAP get a hold of me before Friday!! You can order them all month but the earlier you order them the faster they can get to you!! :D And as always I have my Monthly drawings I do on the 1st of every month for every order made in the previous month!! The person who gets drawn wins a brick of your favorite Scentsy scent!! Order at: I always appreciate any business, if you'd like to have a catalog sent to you please get a hold of me and I'll get that out ASAP!!

Also we had a Tsunami warning the other day. I guess there was a 7.2 earthquake inbetween Nikolski and Atka. The warning was canceled but wow what a feeling of being worried over it! We were in the middle of frying up some fresh cod when we got the call and stopped doing everything to pack an emergency bag then went back to cooking and eating dinner. I always say it's a matter of time before we shake and move since everywhere else on the Pacific plate is moving!! Plus AVO (Alaska Volcano Observatory) is here in town replacing and fixing some of their seismic stations. So it's only a jinx if it shakes while they are here!! I'm waiting to feel the ground rumble and shake. I love the power Mother Earth holds, it just amazes me!! Like I said only so long before we get a good shaking!!

Ok well I'll try to update this again in a couple days or so with anything I might have left out!! Take care bloggers!! Much love to you!! Until next time TTFN!!
