And I'm not saying this because of the weather that is coming our way. It's because our furnace went out this morning! We received some referrals for heating & cooling repairmen and Carl started making calls this morning. All I'm going to say is that it's going to be a few cold days and lots of money until we get a new furnace. So we got out the space heaters, layered on the clothing, and did some baking to warm up the house - it really didn't feel too bad. Now we'll have to wait and see how much snow we get the next few days.
At least we had a good weekend. In my on-going effort to clean out and simplify, I went through almost all of my cookbooks and have 2 drawers of clipped recipes still to go through. Where does all of this stuff come from? I seriously think it breeds and multiples like rabbits. Speaking of recipes, my family really liked everything I made last week. I even received an excellent from my 9 yo which translates to SUCCESS!! However, I didn't make the Crispy Buffalo Chicken and Slaw only because 1) I keep forgetting to buy buttermilk, and 2) Sunday didn't work out like we planned and there was no time to make dinner and now this recipe is going to be carried over to the week.
Well, we watched the Super Bowl. Do we really need to talk about that? I have to say that the Saints did play a good game. The Colts didn't. Oh well, better luck next year.
I finally finished the picture for the bathroom. I wish I would have taken a picture before I started the redo, but all I have is the beginning of it - click here if you want to see it. I couldn't get a really good picture of the color on the frame, so I'm also posting an upclose shot.
