You can see how hectic my week has been, since I wasn't really aware of what day it was. Or maybe I just didn't have time to care. It's been one picky thing after another, all requiring stupid amounts of attention, and mostly completely irrelevant. I've missed visiting you all, that's for certain.
Super Bowl was good, although we were sad that the Patriots lost. Ryan was aghast at a headline in the Wall Street Journal's back section stating that carrots are the second most popular Super Bowl snack, right behind chicken wings. So I made certain that there were plenty of carrots and other veggies available for the pre-game treat, along with Deviled Eggs. You can tell that the vultures had already attacked the eggs by the time the veggies hit the counter and the picture was taken.
Dinner was an array of finger food: chicken wings, taquitos, quesadillas, egg rolls, meatballs, mozzarella sticks, and no pictures. The day just went that way.
And today Dan has my kitchen in a shambles, replacing this stretch of counter. It came up 1/2" short when he replaced my stoves in December. Plus, the original installer did a terrible job of fitting it to the maple butcher block next to it, so it needed to go. The cupboards in this corner are empty, contents strewn about, and grumbling about the measuring, cutting and fitting is abundant. Happily, Dan just grumbles, growls, and throws things out the door, but never bellows, so it's not too loud here. We're now waiting for the caulk at the top of the backsplash to dry, so I can reassemble my corner and get on with life.
And, hopefully, I'll have a little more time tomorrow to visit with all of you! But at least we're half way through the week, so Happy Wednesday!
