list of ten

List of ten: foods we ate when I was a kid

Here are some of the foods we ate very often when I was a kid.

  1. Fried green tomatoes
  2. Chickenbread (make biscuit dough, only thin it out, then fry it into cakes in the leftover oil from the whole chicken you just fried up crispy for Sunday dinner)
  3. Fatback
  4. Cathead biscuits
  5. Pickled peaches
  6. Fried okra
  7. Day-old cornbread in a glass of buttermilk (I didn't eat this one)
  8. Homemade plum juice from the plums that fell into my grandparents' yard from their neighbor's tree
  9. Green beans boiled flat with ham and a potato or two
  10. Homemade fig preserves

List of ten: after the move

I know I've said before that we're moving, and we are. I'm just not sure when (best guess: May). It depends on a lot of things. But whether we stay in Knoxville or move to another city/state, we will rent a house next. R and I are very much looking forward to that. So here's a list of 10 things I want to get or do after we move:

  1. Take a photography class
  2. Get a new bed
  3. Find a good playgroup for V
  4. Get a real desk, instead of the potluck table I'm using now
  5. Start a flower and/or vegetable garden—even if it must all be in containers
  6. Start a fairy garden
  7. Get a miniature tangerine tree
  8. Windchimes
  9. Get a table for V's art
  10. Get preggers

I have a lot of work to catch up on (I work at home as a copyeditor for a non-profit) so I'll continue the post on Maryville either tomorrow or Thursday.
