Oh, I’ve been walking. I use those Nordic type sticks when I’m on a trail. They help because I have back problems. I went the last two days.

 

How could I forget soup? What kinds do you like to make? I use Asian soup bases, bone broth, lots of veggies, and maybe chicken.

A wide variety! I love seasonal soups (like creamy butternut squash, pumpkin soups, and the like) but also thicker things, like stews. Schi is another favorite (Russian/Eastern European cabbage soup, we like to make it with beef sausage). Also more asian-inspired soups (we're pretty good at Ramen lol, though nothing fancy yet or heavily authentic, but at least it's got meat and vegetables). Once we get moved I have some translated cookbooks I want to play with doing more Japanese and Vietnamese soups. 

Tonight's stew is a beef-and-bison with a tomato base, with small potatoes (multicolor blend), rainbow carrots, sweet onions, sweet corn, butternut squash, and a healthy dose of 'Forest Lord' spice mix (from Auntie Arwen's Spices), with a little extra garlic. I made an entire stock pot full, so it should feed us most of the week. I like how it turned out, so I'll probably write it down. 🙂

Thanks! It turned out really delicious.

 

Trying not to be too nervous about Tuesday. So, a little over a week ago our Buyer had to back out of the house contract 'one week' before closing (We were supposed to move on the 16th). Not his fault. The new job he was moving here to take decided to nix the position before he started, and he was moving over 1500 miles. But very frustrating for US since we can't close on the new house without the money from the sale of this one. 

So I had taken this week off to move, and I decided to just take it off anyway (it's only 3 days, thank you Fall Break), and focus on the fact we had to throw the house BACK on the market and pray for a quick sale so as not to lose the house we really love where we are moving. 

 

In good news, in just about 7 days, we got and accepted a 2nd offer. Thankfully this means that our Seller was willing to sign an extension to close right before Thanksgiving instead. 

Tuesday is the Inspection with the new Buyer. Praying that it goes great and they don't find anything the last Inspection missed, because we fixed nearly every single thing the last Buyer wanted (to the tune of thousands of dollars) but did not raise the price on the house so our new buyer (who is also a first time buyer) is getting a fantastic deal. I just really need her to not see something on this inspection that scares her (there should not be anything but at this point I'm a little nervous since everything was going perfectly with the last sale until the other guy's job disappeared).
