this and that
Middle and I engaged in some thumb wrestling. We probably haven't thumb wrestled since he was small and we were waiting for a meal in a restaurant.
(post wrestle) Exhausted hands.
He claims I won. I think he may have thrown the match.
Then, I made mustard. It's so easy (if you have mustard powder). Kinda hot! I like it with steak.
K made warm potato salad with watercress from the same food blog as the blueberry buckle. I could have eaten the entire bowl.
The upstairs loo has no door! It DID have a terrible door that did not match the rest of the house - hollow feeling and cheap. Our neighbors are renovating and replacing some of their doors and K snagged a nice, old, heavy door. He's refinishing it and, while he does, we are doorless. He re-installs it at night, thank heavens.
We have the AC in there. Too complicated to explain. No place else to put it. BUT...
the honeysuckle vine from outside the kitchen door is creeping around it and I like the way it looks...BUT...
IT IS ENCROACHING! I know K will immediately react by clipping it so I'm not telling him right away. I like it.
(I've just realized he reads this.)
DON'T SNIP IT K!
We trudged off to the Giant Store this morning. Not our favorite thing but we needed napkins and zip bags and...erm...something else that is well purchased at the Giant Store (can't remember).
the umbrellas which were all the rage at the beach last week. Ten dollars cheaper than we had seen them online ($39). VERY heavy to carry though they seemed wonderfully effective at shading and shielding.
the most wonderful cooler.
this fabulous camping oven/stove!
I ALMOST think I could go camping with it!
(I WOULD NEVER.)
I could build the sweetest tiny kitchen with that stove and cooler.
Perhaps in my secret cabin by the sea.
I'll keep you posted.
