Just a drive-by posting.
I got mad at the prices I was getting to repair and repaint 5 ceilings in my house, so I've been working on it. They're not perfect, but I don't know that the quotes of around $3000 per ceiling were going to give me perfection in a 95 year old house, either. Besides, do you really look at your ceiling, as long as it's all the same color? I rest my case.
Between Bebop and humans, we had visitors for 2 weeks, which was fun. Bebop and his girl are moving back to Philly in a couple of weeks, so they'll be here much more often now! It's a lot easier to drive 120 miles than 350 miles!
Ryan went back to college, but locally, so he's living at home. He still doesn't know what he wants to do, so he's attending 2 different colleges with 2 very different majors. And Mark starts his senior year on Tuesday. Can you believe that my baby is almost 17, and starting his last year of high school? He will be driving his Lincoln Town Car to school. Of course he's driving a "land yacht." First, he's almost 6'6", which is hard to squeeze into a small car, and, secondly, I want him safe. Surrounded by iron.
Jeffrey is buying a house! His closing is Tuesday! I am so proud!
And Kellie and her fiance are buying a house; their closing is in October. Imagine; I will have four children who are homeowners. That makes me very proud, and feeling very old.
And, no recipe, but I made zucchini apple bread (think zucchini bread, with shredded apple, grated nutmeg, crushed allspice and cinnamon added). It was durn good.
Happy Labor Day, everyone; I'll try to regain some semblance of posting once life is settled into the fall routine.
