Another whirlwind weekend gang! I’d be whiney, but I feel grateful to be able to fully participate in life. My BSIL had a major type birthday this year, so my BB brought both girls home. Lil Bit from Chicago and Peanut from Baton Rouge. It was the perfect present for BSIL and she seemed to enjoy herself, plus we all got the added benefit of getting to see them. I started cooking and grocery shopping on Friday after work and kept at it until I left the house for the party. So today, I was really really too pooped to pop. After walking the little boy, we had a leisurely breakfast and then, I cleaned and did laundry and ironed and all that fun stuff. I have found that I cannot stand the added confusion of dog/cat fur after a week. I also realized that I could avoid that by using the little hand vacuum I bought about 15 years ago and never used. I’m slow, but the ideas do eventually dawn on me that I can do something without purchasing another “thing”.
My microwave is not feeling well these days and I have decided that when it finally goes to the radiation depository in the atmosphere, I will not replace it. I have a tee-tiny kitchen and no counter space, so this would free up some very valuable working space for me. That, plus I won’t have to purchase another “thing”.
By the way, Grover is a FB star. My dear friend, Sharon, took a picture of the boy at choir rehearsal last week and posted it. It’s adorable, but I’m just a little bit partial. I don’t know why I never think of that stuff. At the birthday party, I remembered to bring the camera, but completely forgot to take any pictures at all. le sigh.
And, my D made me a decadent chocolate cake. That’s like saying the Bentley is a large car. I will not share, but I did have one small piece on Saturday and it gave me a killer case of indigestion. I’m having another piece after dinner tonight. More indigestion, but I don’t care. He asked me to make my Red Wine Chocolate Sauce, which I did, so he could pour it on the cake. That is more than gilding a lily. The sauce is not sweet per se, but more on the bitter side, so you need to have it with something very sweet, like vanilla bean ice cream. I cannot imagine having it on the fabulous alone chocolate cake. I hope it was good. I hope they survive!
Since I forgot the camera and see no need for pictures of a “before” and “after” cleanish house, I will send you on your way. My soundtrack for today? How’s about some Janis? I’ve been missing her lately. I can imagine she never would have gotten past the great Simon Cowell on Idol, but then again, look at the music we’re stuck with now.
Have a great Monday!!
