A New Idea For The Carpenter If He Ever Comes Back
The layout would solve the "problem" of adding a shower to a bathroom that doesn't have a shower, but does have a washer and dryer. I like the big glass door. And the open shelving that keeps all the bathroom crap--well, somewhere else. Two nice stacks of white towels (the only color they should come in) is "just right". We'll need two sinks. G says he is using this bathroom if it gets a shower. I was kind of hoping it would be all mine. Like it is now.
My Vitamix arrived (5 days early). As usual, all the things I thought I wanted to make in it--well, now that it's here with the recipe books, I can see why I didn't make anything last time. Anyone reading this have one? Want to share a couple of "beginner" recipes with me? I saw a soup on Food52 that I think could be made in the Vitamix. Just toss it all (except for cheese) into the thing and let it go for 5 minutes till it's hot. Then add cheese and a few corn chips.
I need to go shopping if I make a smoothie. No bananas and no apples. And I think they put celery in all of them also. None of that here either. I could make a kale, cabbage and blueberry smoothie. Not in the book but it's what I have on hand. Pin Interest has lots of recipes but I'm not a member.
I also think I have the stuff to make the Tortilla Soup. Which would be nice, maybe.
I froze the remainder of the pork. Will be eating the rest of the sauerkraut for dinner. Didn't get the pot roast in the oven (which was a mistake) and now I have to worry about it's sell or freeze by date.
Walked with Riley this morning and got lost. I finally asked him to take me home and he did. Who is walking whom?????? And I need to find out how to set the alarm so I can get up for work tomorrow.
In case anyone cares, I am wearing something I put into the "Medium Box of Clothing" this Spring. It's an XL Bean fleece--a light one. And I am reminded of feeling like a sausage in it's casing the last time I tried to wear it. Today? Just perfect. Sort of a citrus lemon lime color. Good for getting lost in the woods. A Bean XL can be anything from a size 12 to a size 18. You just never know. Yes, dear Readers, in some fashion houses a 12 is very nearly plus size. Thus--XL.
The two zip front vests in a pretty green and baby blue are also able to be zipped. And worn. Too bad the scale isn't getting the same message as the clothes. But I'll take what I can get and be happy.
