Friday's Fun!

This has been an odd's been freezing cold...Den is in a "must tie everything down" mood...he is so anxious to do outside clean up, inside painting, trip hair color patch test on one arm is itching and making me crazy...the other arm seems to be ok...for now.  I am not sure if I should see an allergist or a dermatologist.  Sigh!  I just want to not have grays popping up for a while longer...10 or 20 more years?  Please?
I hate reading two books at a time and yet I am...

Coloring?  It's so relaxing!  A break from books every once in a while!

Happy Friday!  See you on Monday!

Thursday's Troubles!

I am never ever making Gray Sole in a cast iron pan again!  And I am never ever making a lemon caper butter sauce to go with it when the person I live with asks me if the next time we have this could I make a lemon caper butter sauce!  This picture is from sole fell apart.

I hate jelly beans but love these!  They are made in a tiny candy factory in Scotland!  Who knew?  No artificial colors or favors!  Lucy hates them.  
Finally finished The Girl On The Train...I am sure of one thing...I don't like her!  If she was my roommate with all that drinking and throwing up...ick!

Starting this...more thoughts tomorrow...

Happy Thursday!

It Was A Wonderful Wednesday...It Still Is!

We went out to lunch's.  It's yummy.  It's fresh.  It's global.  Refreshingly
My avocado salad!!!

After lunch...a quick stop at Trader Joe's.  It's special because it is in armory with a museum underneath!

This came today!  It's beautiful!

We are tired from too much lots of driving around!  Dinner will be all ready prepped salads from Trader Joe's and some of their tiny teeny oatmeal cookies!

Happy Wednesday!

Tuesday's Thoughts...

Today was a relaxing day...and also a laundry day...our laundry seems to get more and more complicated...and both of us find ourselves with tons of fine washables.  Some of mine go into the dryer but more and more get hung on hangers to dry.  Some of my new black tunic dresses were accidentally washed on darks instead of the delicate setting that I always use.  They normally come out wrinkle free but today they appear to have about a million wrinkles in them and one of the necks is stretched out...sigh...

Tomorrow we drive an hour away to a hair salon that is supposed to use a hair color that is free of the stuff I am allergic to.  I am going to get a patch test...wait 48 hours and pray.  I just don't know how to be grayish yet...with so many sad things happening all color shouldn't matter...but right now it sort of does...just a little...

Den spent the day making hotel reservations for us...NYC twice and in June...we are checking out Charleston...

Now...books!  Thank you Amanda and Diane from Harper Collins for sending me this book!  I can't wait to read it!

And just a few more came my way!

Yikes...a memoir!  What was I thinking! 

Still reading my same two books...the funny thing is...I just didn't feel like reading didn't!

Happy Tuesday!

My Mundane Monday!

A normal Monday for me...I love to get the house in order...vacuum, dust, do laundry...boring, mundane un exciting yet ordinary and necessary things.  I am still getting used to not being on my own as much as I always have been.  But sometimes it's fun...I still had wintry things to take down...paintings in the family room, pillows, wreaths...I needed to change them to spring paintings, pillows and's what I do.  And now I have a sort of helper to carry stuff and take down stuff.  

Today was fun because I worked inside and Den worked was a beautiful day!
Den's reward was his favorite kind of lunch!

Tuna salad...tomato salad...garbanzo bean salad...with Trader Joe's whole grain tortillas to scoop salads up with!
I don't make lunch every day but sometimes it's fun!  Apples washed and ready for dessert!

Reading this...

I have tons of books to post about but I will share them later...I am kind of reading Girl On A Train...The Train? while I am reading After The Red Rain and so far I love it!  

Off to shower and reheat a yummy Mexican Lasagna for dinner!

I wonder if Den will want to watch Dancing With The Stars tonight or...hmmm...let's  

Happy Monday!
