In any event, the workers have not been back here in a very long time. They have that two story garage and breezeway to finish. My work was delayed due to waiting for windows so I missed my window of opportunity, so to speak.
I friend moved into a rental and agreed to take/borrow the huge set of lined curtains I had in the attic. I am so relieved to have that box gone. Really nice, custom curtains. Not me. Now. I bought them at an antique show a dozen or more years ago for about $100. I used one curtain for that many years over the front door. Got my money's worth. I think they were for a sunroom or something. All different widths but the same length on all of them. Floor to ceiling.
I woke up this morning while it was still dark. Got to fall back asleep. No pending employment today. Woke again, later, and pulled on the "uniform" of work shirt and pajama bottoms. Made coffee, read the newspaper, paid the bills. I also washed the ripening tomatoes on the back porch, cut off the bad spots (lots) and have a new 4 quart batch of ketchup (tomato jam is what the foodies are calling it). It's midway in the 3 hour simmer. I taste tested the first batch on a piece of chicken. Very tasty. I keep telling G we need French fries.
Last night, for dinner, I had the BBQ pork with one of the GF noodles my daughter gifted me with on my birthday. I had the mung bean fettucini. Smelled like drying grass. Tasted like dried grass. But it was okay. I think if I covered it in enough "something" it would be doable as a pasta. And no heartburn today.
I am planning to get dressed, finish doing laundry and visit the grocery and Goodwill. That's all I have planned. I am hoping the grocery visit stirs thoughts of "something for dinner" that has tons of leftovers for the week. G usually enjoys baked chicken in heavy cream with lots of mushrooms served with rice and broccoli but what about me???? A kale/sausage/onion/pepper frittata?
I have the new Jo Nesbo thriller Police on my table. Finished a light FBI romance. Hotshot. Have another Scandanavian mystery but I got book two and not book one. I am thinking I should start with one. G and I watched episodes 2 and 3 of The Fall on Netflix last night. Only two more left. Then we will have to look for something else. It has been suggested we try Orange is the new Black. Or House of Cards. I am dying to know what is happening on Homeland but have to wait till the season is over.
What about you? What are you reading, watching, thinking about?
