Thought I was going to be posting pictures of my new kitchen/dining area floor this week - but how does that old saying go "the best laid plans..........."? The person who has to install some new 1/4 round in a couple of places and touch up where all the 1/4 round had to be removed, then replaced had to reschedule. Actually the floor got laid 2 days earlier than scheduled. Last Tues. morning, I am drinking my morning coffee, hair not combed, no makeup on, and on the computer . Then the phone rings around 8:20 and I hear this voice say "are you ready"? My first thought was "for what ???", then realized who was on the phone. Long story short - They were coming 2 days earlier than originally scheduled!!!
NO !!! I was NOT ready !!! There was another shelf full of breakables in the china cabinet to be removed, etc., etc. First priority was to comb hair, and put on makeup - would not want to scare anybody off ! Then ran back down stairs and started moving the small stuff, and the living room ended up looking like a tornado hit. I have not moved that fast in years!
The men got here and the first big piece of furniture they started to move was the cabinet. They looked at the miniature general store and stopped in their tracks ! I told them I was not going to take all that out, so if it fell over, it would just have to fall over, and I taped the doors so they would not come open They moved it 2 times, and the only thing I see toppled over is some mini canned goods on one shelf, and a couple of other items - Good job ! :-D
One of the men asked what the small cake stand and dome would be used for (it was empty at the time). I was so tempted to say "decorate it and use it as a cloche", but behaved and told him I used it for cupcakes, muffins, etc. :-D
Since then, I have had a house full celebrating a couple of birthdays, so have a couple of left over cupcakes. :-D
Trying not to eat one for a couple of days, since I "over indulged" this last weekend with BBQ and the "fixins", but it was so good.
Speaking of food: I had my first vine ripened tomato sandwich of the season a couple of weeks ago, and could not decide why it just did not taste the same. Then the "light bulb" came on - I used white whole wheat bread and mayo with olive oil !!!! It should have been plain white sandwich bread and miracle whip !!!
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend !
