Our food came today. 50-70 pound boxes. My back is okay. Old favorites, old friends they are all. side note: Like the paint job? Art work is coming soon. I will update.

Spaghetti cubboard...yum...sidenote: close the Parmesan lid before shaking and it makes a good movie snack. Cover two holes and shake into mouth.

24 cans of olives, 12 boxes of cheeseburger macaroni hamburger helper, 12 boxes of granola bars, 11 instant chocolate puddings (3 years old, terrible with powder milk)
Chili cupboard, and Ramen snacks for Steph - are we still in college?
There's more, like 24 boxes of Stovetop stuffing, and 2 dozen cans of pineapple and chicken soup. Other things include 900 rolls of toilet paper. side note: Honeybuckets don't plug up, good thing for me, huh Mom and Dad. Get that toilet fixed.

So in Review: whole family room full of groceries and nothing to snack on.

Ocean gathering

Steph and I took the 4-wheeler we recently bought and took a trip up the beach that is about a mile from our house. We drove until the Arolik river where you can't cross and then came home. We stopped and picked some blueberries, honest to goodness blueberries, like the ones in stores. There are also real raspberries around here, but we didn't find any of those. It was a nice little trip and I tell you what, it is sure nice to get out and do something. That is one thing we really like about Quinhagak.
