It’s been a week and a half! Last week I gave myself some pretty bad burns. I’ve been diligent with the ointment and I’m happy to say that most of the burns are healing well. I’ve had a couple of nights of insomnia too and I’m trying to force myself back into a regular sleep cycle. It makes for rough days, but I hope I’m back to normal by Monday.
Then Greg’s knees started to give out, pain I know only too well. Part of his knee problem is due to the ‘Tuesday from Hell’. The sink in the garage sprung a leak, but it was more complex than simply replacing a plastic fitting. There was soldering and repiping involved which led to a bigger problem.
Greg fixed the leak, but when I turned the main valve going into the house back on, the valve broke in my hand. That too was worse than it appeared on the surface. If we weren’t unlucky enough, no one seemed to have all the parts he needed. We were everywhere trying to find this piece or that. Poor guy was on his hands and knees until 10pm that night trying to get the job done so we’d have water the next day.
It’s all done though, including my kitchen cabinets! The carpenter came back with the back-ordered cabinets and put them up. Monday I’ll show you pictures, including the custom cabinet Greg built for me that is truly my favorite part of the kitchen.
The best part about a rough week is when it’s behind you!
We’re finally getting cooler weather this week–well it’s in the 70s–which is cool for Texas. That’s a good reason to make soup. My first soup for the season will be French onion soup with some warm, crusty bread.
What’s the first tummy-warming meal you like to make when the weather turns cool?
