Weekly Journal #18

Last week started off with my microbes getting contaminated again and again at work. Which means I had to repeat the same dang experiment three times. But I finally stopped the contamination and we ended up getting great results, so that was exciting.

My mom made french onion soup this week. We have it about once a year in the fall and I love it.

I ate lunch outside every day this week at work under the birch trees. They're just starting to change color.

On Saturday we carved pumpkins and I got a chance to try this root beer beer. It was so good!

It's Halloween this week and we don't have any plans so far.. But! I am about to explode from excitement for next Sunday because for me, that marks the start of... CHRISTMAS!!!

(Yes, I'm one of those people...)


  1. Damn those microbes... I have one colleague who seems to always have contaminated cells, I thought it was bad luck before but I now think it's because they aren't so great at cell work. Still contamination is a butthead.

  2. Hooray for progress! Hahaha sometimes it just takes a little trial and error.
    That soup looks delicious!<3

  3. Good news about your microbes and i love that you get to sit outside for lunch. We should make & eat that soup more!

  4. Congrats on getting some decontaminated microbes! Having to do the same thing over and over like that can be good for your patience, though. ;) A positive aspect! And holy smokes, that french onion soup looks great. I have never made it before. Maybe I will soon! =)

  5. I was looking at white (ghost) pumpkins today and thinking how lovely and different they are :)
    Your pumpkin is amazing!
