Well loyal readers and new ones should there be any, it’s been a quiet and peaceful couple of days. The weather was mostly lovely but the tornadoes were horrible for sure. Our alerts went off Sunday night about 45 minutes after we went to bed. We turned on the TV and discovered that the area of concern was past us to the east. Still I think we both slept rather fitfully.
Bear is shy of thunder so he was a constant companion most of the night as well. Other than being soggy on Monday, we had a pleasant day with ribs on the grill and potato and pea salads for dinner. As usual, an enormously longer time is spend preparing than eating and that always distresses me to no end.
The blogging has been erratic because I got to a point in the cleaning where I just wanted it done, so I pushed hard to finish. I had the kitchen done by sometime Saturday which was so nice. It was delightful Monday to do the cooking in for sure. I didn’t do anything yesterday other than throw up the blog editorial and mess around with DIGG. I have no clue if it will help build traffic but I’m hopeful. Given the time I put in, I’d like to see my traffic increase, but that of course depends on whether what I write is of interest to anyone.
This morning I was determined to finish the laundry/pantry. It was a nasty business but the Contrarian pitched in and we moved the washer and dryer and the rearranged things a good deal. I moved the potato/onion bin to the laundry room and we moved the pantry shelving to the kitchen area, and it’s super now. That was the Contrarian’s idea and so all that thinking is worthwhile. He’s also going to build me another shelf over the washer/dryer which will sure be helpful. I am however, pooped! Just a marinated steak for dinner with the salads is all we are having.
So please be patient. I’ll try to get back on track with the usual blog tomorrow. We will be going to town again this week, but I don’t think it will be tomorrow, but probably Thursday. Just a lot of things to do at this time of year, and we have to catch up on things that we neglected all winter because we were so snow bound. I try to get around to those of you who blog several times a week, and comment so you know I’m not neglecting you, but time is scarce these days with the planting season in full swing. I don’t have my flowers done at all or my herbs yet either. The lousy weather today doesn’t encourage me to do much either.
So stay warm and dry and keep up the good fight, or not as the case may be! Some sun would be nice!
