It’s a little early on Monday to have Mini Miracles already, but eh…I’m feeling miracly! So, let’s do this. 🙂
1. My Garmin started working again. (Holla!)
I took Momjovi’s advice and searched online for a fix. I tried to reset the watch (I have the 405) by pressing both side buttons at once. The watch displayed a horizontal line that would fade when I released the buttons, which seemed common from online postings. Still dead. Then, the dumbest advice I found online worked.
“If nothing works, leave the watch alone and try charging it the next day.”
Uhh. Yep. That worked.
In a fit of happiness, I promptly made out with it.
2. I bought some items at the store yesterday that I have never purchased in my life: asparagus, Brussels sprouts, and shrimp. The shrimp is frozen, not fresh, so don’t get too excited.
Last night, I mentioned to Hubs that the two things I wish I could do well is dance and cook. That is completely influenced once a year by So You Think You Can Dance and Master Chef. So, I bought some things to try my hand at cooking since it sounds easier than learning how to pop n lock. What am I going to do with this stuff? I have no idea. Also, I have never had a Brussels Sprout in my life. I hope they don’t suck.
Note: This cooking thing should pass once True Blood comes on and I want to be a vampire. <—–life controlled by TV
3. I bought a knife sharper than a butter knife.
I plan to cut Peeps with it (the marshmallows, not my friends). I need to make them last since I only have 5 left. Gotta ration them like I’m stranded at sea with only one bottle of water.
Also, I plan to hold it like this.
When I hold knives, I appear in letterbox and gain 4 chins.
I suppose I’ll also use that knife to cut butternut squash and make my super tasty butternut squash fries. I really need to get a nice set of knives for the kitchen so I can actually cook something. And stab intruders.
What is your Monday Mini Miracle?
What’s something easy I can do with shrimp, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus? (I have chicken at home too.)
