Last summer project finished! – We sanded and recoated the kitchen hardwood floor. It’s not as bad a job as you think. Overall it took 10 hours over 3 days. We did the pre-start conversation (or the tailgate as I call it). We agreed how we would proceed so we wouldn’t be painted into a corner. Alas, I totally forgot and painted our escape route. We had to recalculate our exit (I can hear the judgy voice from my GPS – “recalculating” with a heavy sigh). #hatestupidonme
Jack and the beanstalk! – We’ve had a lot of rain this summer. The weeds have been ecstatic. I can leave for a 20 minute errand and when I come back there is a five foot weed that wasn’t there at all when I left. Very scary! #zombieapocalyse
Turnover time – Kids are going back to school. My local Starbucks is having a turnover of baristas. It means longer wait times and occasionally “deer in the headlight” looks from new people. Today I got the wrong drink. Fortunately I check before I leave. #timetotrain
And then it was gone – My brother gave me a mystery tomato plant. I don’t know the variety but it was a large slicing one. It didn’t do very well. I had two tomatoes on the plant. One was getting pink. I decided to give it another day on the vine before picking. Bad decision. Some critter decided the pink was perfect and ate it. #gettheshotgun
The power of suggestion – I have been reading a series of light murder mysteries (if you can call a murder light) by Joanne Fluke. The main character owns a cookie store and it’s sprinkled with recipes. Lots of recipes. She’s always feeding people. If I lived near her I’d weigh 800 pounds! It has inspired me to cook in a way that I haven’t in a long time. I haven’t made any of her recipes but I’ve been tweaking my own. Somehow it’s fun cooking again! #whereismyapron? #tossthescale
So how was your week?
