I'm Still Alive and Cooking...Sorta

One of my landlines got struck by lightning a couple of weeks back, as did my modem and router.  I had to wait a couple of days for the phone company, because it happened on a Saturday.  And it was very difficult for Dan and the repairman to get into my office and fix the whole dastardly thing, because my office is small and crowded.  Like 6x9 small, and stacked to the 9 foot ceiling crowded.

Around the same time, my trusty old inkjet printer decided it didn't always want to behave.  So Dan offered to rebuild my office, and pick up a new printer of my choice for me.

And the printer is here, but the reorganization is not complete.  I'm entering my second full week of climbing, cleaning and heaving.  And I think I might someday be done.  But that means I'm not cooking "exciting things."  Except for these Italian Ninja-bread Men I made on Saturday night, when my daughter requested the Olive Garden option: Multiple kinds of sauce for the endless pasta bowls, endless bread sticks and endless salad.  I did make 2 kinds of sauce, and for some harebrained reason decided making cut-out bread would be easy and quick.  Silly me.


These were the only survivors of the 32 I made.

And, I found this fax which a friend sent me about 15 years ago.  Evidently, I've always been just this easy to get along with, and so very accomodating to others.  I'm keeping this.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Ta;l about having an eventful week. My goodness, Marjie. I do believe it was a sign from the heavens to get organized, lol...I bet the reorganization is going to look pretty spiffy too!

LOVE, love, love that fax! As a matter of fact, I'm soooo pinning it!

You know me and bread so yes, I'll take the last two, no problem!

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

Happy cleaning - purging is a good thing, but man is it time consuming! I did a lot before vacation and it barely looks like a dent!
I've always loved that quote...

Ummm - I've been in your 'office' and 6x9 is extremely generous! It's more like 3x4 and I think I'm still being generous. Also if you considered stashing fabric somewhere besides your office it might not take as long to clean up - that's a guess. ;) Hope you survive the clean and purge. g

My aunt once found a tee shirt with said quote and threatened to buy in bulk. I love it!

Can't believe you made little bread men. I think about those things, but they seem like so much work just to be eaten.

Love the fax. I feel that way most of the time.
