Truthful Tuesday

 


Couple of things to admit to today... First, because this is just so 2020... One afternoon last week I got up from my desk to use the restroom and you know what I saw in the hallway? DO YOU?! Why, it was a baby snake. In my house. Chillin' in the hallway. After taking a few seconds to acknowledge why yes, that is a baby snake on my floor, I went to the craft room to grab a trash bag to collect baby snake. Sometime in those 15 seconds baby snake disappeared. So instead of trying to find it I went back to work. Sometimes I ignore things I don't like, okay?

Anyway, I finish my work day and now I'm more focused on looking for baybay snek. And know where he was? On the railing of the stairs. Okay, self! Gather yourself. Catch the baybay snek! Only, he drops himself off the railing into this pile of award coolers.


So um... Know what I did? I went and rode my horses instead of tearing that apart and finding the snake. Long story short, he lives here now. His name is Ssseth. And I think he tried to use my credit card online. (Because yes, also my credit card was used fraudulently again. 4th time this year between a few cards.)

So anyway, that happened. The other thing I have to tell you... This one is pretty hilarious. I've been getting groceries delivered, but my local store hasn't had any canned pumpkin. I wanted to make pumpkin bread so I went online and ordered a can. You guys. PAY ATTENTION to can sizes when you order stuff, or you might just get this...


Yep. That's enough to make 8 pies according to the label. I don't have any plans to make 8 pies. But I guess before I open it, I will get some recipes for the bread I wanted, some pumpkin cookies, and I dunno? Maybe pumpkin muffins? Pumpkin dip? The options are endless. Much like this can.

  2. You can totally freeze the pumpkin! And, also, Ssseth better pack his bags and move out!

  4. I'm sorry I should not have laughed so hard at your snack but I definitely sniggered out loud when he fell into the coolers...!

    As L says, pumpkin freezes just fine. Portion it out and have pumpkin for whenever you want it!

    1. I mean... it is pretty funny. I'd have handled it much differently if a. it wasn't a garter and b. if it was any bigger.

  5. I second everyone else regarding freezing the extra pumpkin.

  6. I didn't know that pumpkin cans came that large!! You can likely freeze it. And then use the can to build a home for Ssseth.

    1. Neither did I! I was like why is this box so big? And so heavy?
      It would make a nice home for Ssseth!

  7. Dying laughing at both things! I would totally ignore the snake too. That may or may not have happened with a wee mouse (that 3 cats would not take care of!) for a couple of days.

    Ditto on freezing the pumpkin - it freezes super well. Pumpkin bread forever!

    1. The amount of wildlife that is likely living in my home with me should be unsettling... But you get used to it!
