Famous American Cranberries

So I biked to and from campus yesterday, which took me about 30 minutes each way.  It wasn't too bad, especially when I started shifting gears on the hills....there aren't really steep hills here...just long ones.  I'm not nearly as sore (like not really at all) as I anticipated I would be from that today though.  I am excited to use my bike a few times a week to get to and from campus, it's a pleasant ride and I really enjoy it.

I decided last night as well that I was getting sick of microwave dinners from Waitrose (though they are indeed tasty) and that I was going to make chicken and vegetable soup.  I got all the veggies from the store (carrots, potatoes, celery, garlic, onion) and used my new small pot to make a very delicious soup.  I also got some cookies for afterwards- the cookie (biscuit) selection was huge!  I finally decided upon white chocolate cranberry cookies (which were perfect with a glass of milk before bed).  They had "famous American cranberries" in them.  I didn't realize that our cranberries were famous!  :)
THE FAMOUS (!)  American Cranberries. 
Today, I am going to go work in the pits (where the Formula One car is being built) and learn how to do some of the work on the car.  I also am going to start working on helping to maintain and organize their website.
Post again soon!


  1. So if you learn to work on cars, can you do a rear differential for a Subaru?.....;)

  2. Right now, I was just working on an engine, mom. I will let you know when I get to that part of the car...but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. :)

  3. I'm surprised you lasted that long on frozen dinners! Enjoy your famous American Cranberries ;)
