Odds and Ends

At work the girls were pestering me for not having any pictures on my walls, so now I do: favorite vampire... it needs to be much bigger....
I do like my job though most days, so that is good. And the occasional perk. Like last week we got to skip some work and go to the Tigers game.
When I moved out last week I took some pictures of my empty apartment. It was sad, but I think it was good for me to have some closure and help wrap up 'the Andrew phase'. I had this wastebasket next to my bed, and I hadn't emptied it since all this began. Which sounds kind of gross now as I'm typing it, but even to see all those tears cried, and to hold on to the hope that God doesn't waste a hurt and will use this pain for some purpose He must have, was really helpful and healing for me.
Now on to kitchen/cooking news...
For some reason my roommate had this teeny bottle of olive oil in her pantry... What the heck? It holds like a tablespoon...
The other day I hadn't unpacked any of my food yet, but had some veggies from my mom's garden that needed to be eaten so I made a stir-fry of sorts with cheesy scrambled eggs. Super good!
And last night's dinner was a return to an old favorite, butter chicken. I LOVE this stuff. My grocery store inexplicably stopped carrying the packets though, I don't know why, so I found it on amazon and bought a 6 pack. So worth it.
Add broccoli and server over rice, yum. I saw on amazon that you can set it up to be mailed regularly on a schedule, yes, it is that good. I might need to get on the schedule :)
Tonight after work I am leaving to go camping/hiking with a friend. I am excited to see my friend and see a new place.
