When Did It Get to be Wednesday?

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 ple
nty 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!

I bet you will be so happy when the counter is completed & you get your kitchen back.

That is so frustrating! Those eggs look really tasty.

Deviled eggs are always good. So are carrots. Enjoy your rennovated kitchen!

I'm always asking where did the week go? Is it just me or is this year starting to fly by too fast. Sorry about your team losing but at least you had plenty of yummy food to enjoy. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

Hm that Superbowl - a very American event.
My son is hooked though, and watches it with friends every year,staying up all night having a blast. I am however pretty sure that they didn't eat one single carrot..
He too was sad that the Patriots didn't win...

As always Dan has done an outstanding job - he is so skilled and talented.

I would so love to "play" in your kitchen to feed you all.

Time flies when you're having fun. I'm also aghast about the carrot tidbit. Truth be known, it's probably the dressing they're dipped in that's in second place.

and by the time I checked it was Thursday - so more than half done! Whoo hooo!

Love deviled eggs - there were non at our party. But lots of other goodies which was also dinner. I wasn't very happy about the loss. I was however, less than impressed, with the quarterback's wife's behavior. :(

I'm a day late reading this - is your kitchen set back to rights yet ? Dan always does such a good job. No SuperBowl here, I think my guys put on the halftime show - that was about it.
