Saturday, I made Hanukkah cookies from a funny kids' kit. They had most of the ingredients, so that was good. It was kind of cute. Plus they had a huge display at our market. There aren't very many Jews here, so why not support the store and show that we're here? ^_^ The mix called for one egg, but the 'dough' ended up really dry. So I added another egg. That turned out really well. The icing was extremely sweet, and very quick drying. It was good when it was on the cookie, I guess it balanced out. They also have a thing where you can draw things on them. I got tired of that, because it was kind of hard to draw on them. So they weren't very 'artistic', but that didn't matter. It was tasty anyways!
I got a nice assortment of colored pencils. 36 different colors! So much more than what I had before! Also, they're harder and pointier than my other ones. They're super thin ones. Very fancy, at least to me. ;) I sharpened them all today. (Took forever, and it was tiring!) Then, I made a color chart. They really are nice colors. :D My drawings will have better color now!
Today, I went through the stuff that was in the drawers I left in the garage from college. A lot of the food was bad. Smelled so rancid! :( There were even cans that were long past their expiration dates. That rarely happens! But, I found an assortment of packaged popcorn. Buttered, kettle corn style, extra salt, and normal. A lot of them. Also, found a good brick of brown sugar. ^_^ There was other things like my old posters, decorations, and more. I threw most of it out.
I got a pair of earrings. They're hoops with my birthstone (Citrine) in them. They look really cool! Can't believe it's getting close to when we go to Florida! Things are going by so fast. :P
