Something Amazing just happened at my house!!!

I made these muffins for the Young Women tonight (game night) and I was able to put them on the counter without ants getting to them.....Ohhh yes...amazing things happening here in Strafford.







Don't laugh, in Samoa I had to beat the ants away and sometimes a flick of the finger or just go ahead and eat the sucker....

Now if you knew me growing up and as an adult, you would know that I hate bugs of any form (ask my family)....and for me to just eat an ant without the bat of an eye....

listen,

nothing is going to come between me and my food..

Another amazing thing. Did you know that the mail person actually brings your packages to your door....or is it just me?

I must be so important for that to happen (snickering).

No mail service in Amerika Samoa...had to go to the post office about a 30 minute drive to get our mail.

Nothing happening in the sewing room today except cleaning....

Culture shock is hitting you ! I used to live in Colombia, S. America, so I know about bugs. Yes, you do get used to them, but not the biggest cockroaches! Yuk!! We really have life a lot easier here. I hope we're not too spoiled for the coming days.

I know what you mean with the ants; when I visit my mom in Florida it's the same thing! I would have to change my whole way of living not to use my counters littered with food and keep food out...there's fudge and hotdog buns out there as I speak. I'm sure I'd have roaches here too if it wasn't just too cold! Lots of crumbs on the floors..although I vacuumed today :P .
I like my to the door service too...it's the highlight of some days :) Have a great evening with your group!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Sounds like you are adjusting very well Barb :-)

quiltingnana said...

jennifer said...

Barb, all that's missing in that picture is some butter. Yum

Fiesta said...

THEY LOOK YUMMY.

Deanna said...

So, you miss the weather, but get to trade that for no bugs. Oh my, I can always put on a sweater but hate digging insects out of my lunch.

Angela said...

Priorities and perspective huh? :o)

I know for certain if an ant climbed onto a TimTam I'd eat the ant too....you are not alone :)

I'm happy you are enjoying the perks of living on the "big island"....:P)

The muffins look tasty...especially without the ants.

Jackie said...

I know it's must be a huge adjustment going from the warm sunshine to the bitter cold. One thing we can always count on you for is seeing the positives in everything. You're such a good example for us!

DianeY said...

I guess maybe you never learned the big roasting pan of water with an upside down bowl in it & a plate on top of the bowl! We have the same problem in Hawaii sometimes, especially after it's been raining & the ants run in for refuge! But the mailman does come to the door!

Judy C said...

OK ewwwwwwww! eating ants I can't think of it without it making me say ewwwwwww!

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

What time is the meeting? Yummmm!!! Welcome to the mainlands, sometimes things are taken for granted and we need to be reminded.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

You are too funny!!

Needled Mom said...

There are advantages to the colder climate. It sounds like it was a great day - baking and cleaning.

QuiltSue said...

I can almost smell your baking.

As for being important, of course you are. Heyy, do you think the person who brings your post right to your door spends the rest of his/her day patrolling to make sure no ants try to get in?

clare's craftroom said...

The muffins look too nice to share with ants !

The Quilting Pirate said...

OOO new springy layout!!

Man, how could you stand waiting for quilty things to come...now you are so spoiled!! :)

I hope you and the Young Women had a nice evening!

Joanne Lendaro said...

That's just yum and yuck all at the same time! Hope you had a good time with the ladies!

andsewon said...

This mall carrier we have now is a nut! I can get huffy at him every now and again! Yes I know ..a shock that I admit to being huffy at all... hahaha!

Do I detect just a hint of "winter isn't ALL bad" in that ant comment? Hehe!
