three things thursday

this is going to be the quickest blog post on the face of the universe. i may not even proofread! the only reason i am blogging is because i miss you. all of my focus is on THE BLANKET, this week (see, i am watching the clock so intently that i will not even link back to the most recent talk about THE BLANKET). the good news is that the time and effort is paying off. dare i say i am ahead of schedule? no, i musn’t. that would be a surefire jinx.

three things thursday (and five for friday, two-sday, etc) are popular blogging titles. to the best of my knowledge, i have never done three things thursday! however, i am not about to go back through the blog chronicles and verify that fact – we’ll just take my word for it.


#1 – i love peanut butter with all my heart and mind. my tiptop favourite is this one (nothing new, you’ve seen this brand before, here):

uh oh, this is the last one in my pb stash...and yes, the pb is stored beside the instant coffee - that's my cupboard organization!

in doing some reading, i have learned that ALMOND BUTTER is even better for you than pb because it is not so acidic (if i understand right). i’ve purchased almond butter in the past, but am just not crazy about it. however, for variety, i bought this almond butter – there was a $1 off coupon at valumart to sweeten the deal!

a never-tried-before brand, to me

i will eat it, but it’s just not as yummy as pb.

#2 – i would give my right arm eyeball for this tank top:

it CAUGHT MY EYE (punny!) immediately!!

it’s hanging in the window of the store ‘denim’ in uptown. [again, no linkage due to time! google if you must!]. unfortunately, it bears a price tag of $74. ouch. put this top into the “want” and not the “need” category of fashion desires. it’s totally me, though! and i already have a peach berserk top with eyeballs all over it, and i have that dress that i wore to duncan and jillian’s wedding by the same design team (desigual). anyway, i do stare at it and blow it a kiss every time i walk by.

#3 – what is it about food basics giving me opportunities for a r.a.o.k.?? on monday, i was in line to pay, and the woman ahead of me asked the checkout woman if she could have two $10 bills for a twenty. the cashier said no. she said she needed her small bills in her til for customers. well, the thought flashed through my mind that i could help out by providing two tens. sadly, i only had one in my wallet. but i would have assisted if i could have! haha, how funny would it be if 7/8 of my r.a.o.k.s all took place in food basics!?!

it is going to get to 22 degrees today!

tomorrow is the middle of the month!

this blogging break was good for my wrists!

question for if you are in a rush: peanut butter: crunchy or smooth? me = crunchy!! here’s my other favourite!

maybe i should try THEIR almond butter???

question for if you have a moment to chat: tell me the first three items of news that pop into your head starting NOW! me = i still have the urge to spring clean; i am not going drinking for st patty’s day (surprise, surprise); vfbf joanne and i are coffee cultur-ing after work – might i knit ‘n’ chat IN coffee culture?!!

    I tried to comment from my phone yesterday and had major problems (still not resolved…I’m on my computer now)!
    Crunchy pb!
    Good luck with the blanket!

      thanks for persevering, zo! sorry about the difficulties, someone else could not comment either. seems to be an issue from a phone?? which i do not know how to solve!! how it fixes itself! glad you’re part of our crunchy pb fan club!

    i’ve tried a bunch of different almond butters and MaraNatha almond butter is actually the ONLY one i’ve stuck with. Happy 22* Friday, Cathy!!

    • 1970kikiproject  On March 16, 2012 at 5:48 am

      thanks for the suggestion on maranatha alm butter, andrea! i will keep that in mind as the brand i bought is not great enough to bother buying again. if the almond butter is anything like the pb, maranatha will be the go-to brand! yes! 22 in march is amazing! happy weekend to you!

    Smooth and creamy – right to the bottom of the jar.

    • 1970kikiproject  On March 15, 2012 at 10:34 am

      thanks for your comment, mom! i do remember that we always had smooth pb in the house, growing up!

    Almond butter sounds like it could be quite tasty. I’d like to try cashew butter someday, since I go crazy for cashews!

    • 1970kikiproject  On March 15, 2012 at 9:52 am

      thanks for your comment, ria! oh, you MUST try cashew butter, if you like cashews. i have purchased cashew butter before, and it’s really tasty. i’d describe it as quite rich in taste, very flavourful!

    Peanut butter: definitely crunchy natural!

    • 1970kikiproject  On March 15, 2012 at 9:28 am

      haha, i know you have a busy week with fun march break activities! thanks for sharing about pb, karen!! 🙂 can’t wait to read about yesterday’s and today’s plans on your blog!
