After weeks and weeks of rain and fickle temperatures, we finally saw a beautiful, mild, sunny day-and just in time for Easter. Everything is flourishing and blooming, both outside…
And they were tasty too! White cake with Orange Cream Cheese frosting. I hope everyone had a relaxing, peaceful and fun Easter holiday. I have been uber busy with work and didn’t get to post last week and I missed you all! I hope Spring has found its way into all your lives by now.
Just what makes that little ‘ole ant….
Hey guys! Are you sleeping on the job!? WAKE UP!!!
Yep. I went there. I know this might be a cheesy submission for Linda Hill’s #SoCS prompt today. The word is fab, so well, here you have it.
In my defense it has been a far less than fab week for me, beginning with the leaking ceiling. Even though the leak itself was repaired the next day, we are still waiting for the ceiling to be repaired. We complained enough that someone came and put up the basic beginnings of a ceiling, so at least we put the washer and dryer back into place and-yay!-we can do laundry again. You never realize what a luxury that is unless you have ever been without it. Which I have. A few times. A toilet that works-indoors-and a nice washer and dryer head up my top ten list of conveniences.
As for whiter than white towels, I love those nifty colorsafe Clorox pucks. Not that I have enthralling over-the-fence gab sessions about them. Who has the time? Or the energy. After this past week I am tempted to bury my head under a pillow until the Fourth of July. I could use some beautiful fireworks about now.
To my friend and bar patron Dan thanks for the shout out and photos of that yummy food today. You have inspired me to climb out of bed and make a spectacular dinner. Or at least go and find one. Check out Dan’s bar conversation today. I hear his bartender makes a mean Michelada. 😉
After the events of the last 24 hours, I felt I wouldn’t even try to participate in this week’s #SoCS event; but if you visit Dan’s place, you’ll realize maybe there is just a wicked mean vibe in the universe right now. I hope it fades with the moon.
The week of the Supermoon I thought things were rough, but that was merely my external world. Yesterday Trouble decided to get personal with us. When I went downstairs to put something in the laundry area I had a little surprise waiting.
I won’t bore you with all the details and deductive reasoning but it turned out to be a leaking hot water heater pipe in the ceiling between first and second floors.
I am thankful the actual leaking occurred over our laundry area. Still, the plumber came and even now is finishing the repair which includes tearing out the overhead ceiling in the laundry area and leaving it open for a few days to dry.
(Hubby may not sleep for a few days imagining the four legged things that could infiltrate our living space)
I know…he looks cute in the photo, but I don’t want to share morning coffee with him…😳
So, last night we just left it all behind to grab a bite. We spent a little dough, but, d’oh, I think we deserved a treat.
Today’s post is brought to you by Linda Hill and her Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, Dough/D’oh. Check out her page for other great posts and join in for some fun.
PS I sure hope your week was brighter than ours, cheers to a better tomorrow.
