Christmas in July!!! Sing along with me people!
It's about 105 degrees outside, the wind hits your face like a blow dryer spewing hot sand as soon as you step outside. BUT...inside, it's a cool 76 degrees and I'm feelin' like making Christmas presents. These are going to be the most awesome bottles of vanilla extract the world has ever seen. I'm starting now because it takes a few months to get good and vanilla-ey. I just made that word up. I do that a lot. I make up the spelling too. So there.
No, I haven't been sampling the vodka that I'm using to make this awesome vanilla...I'm just trying to get a head start on the holidays. I've always wanted to do a "homemade" (no, not HO made) Christmas where all the gifts are... well, homemade. Duh.
That's about all the fun stuff I've done today. Scott and I cleaned the house earlier. Now...I know I shouldn't look a gift-horse in the mouth, or in this case a gift-housecleaning-husband....but sheesh, men can really be...umm...not so bright when it comes to housekeeping. Scott likes to vacuum one room and then mop it...vacuum the next, mop and repeat. That's just plain dumb. But hey, he was doing that while I was doing the back breaking task of pouring vodka into bottles so who am I to stop him? I did ask why he did it that way and he got a little testy with me so I decided that while it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of, at least I didn't have to do it. hehe. No, really, it's dumb. our family room and kitchen come together and it doesn't make sense to do it the way he's doing it. Ok, I'll shut up...but it's dumb. Really dumb.
I have some vodka left over...ohhh hey, there's a lemon over here....I think I'll make some lemon extract too. Dang, just call me the extract woman! Off to Target to return a top I thought would look "cute" on me but was definately anything but. Down right "eewww" is more like it. I may make a stop at the liquor store on the way back...need to make some Kahlua. Forget making dinner....I'm all about making stuff with alcohol today. Look, as long as there's a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread in the pantry, dinner's on the table folks.
