I know I’m a day behind in my posting. Yesterday was hair cut day for both myself and DH. After breakfast, we headed out the door in search of a barber for him and a hair stylist for me. I had remembered a shopping center which had both, but I was not sure exactly where it was......we did managed to find it, once we got on the right street. DH was sure it was on such-n-such street and I was not so sure. So, I checked the recent finds in the garmin and there it was--DH still wasn’t sure, but I said, “Humor me” and check it out. He did and we arrived at the shopping center a few minutes later--at least we were in the general area. Oh yeah, did I mention I was right and DH was wrong?
It was funny, it was like we were going into the vast unknown......we both hugged each other and said ‘hope we still recognize each other, when this is over’. When it was over it was all good and yes, we both still look like us---not sure if that is good or bad though, but it is all we have.....
That was pretty much all the excitement we had for that day.
Today I decided to clean the fiver. DH took the furballs out for a long walk so I could have the place to myself. Thanks, honey! I decided with all the sand, I had better really do a good job of cleaning. All of the cabinets and woodwork needed a good dusting and I even got the ladder out and cleaned the ceiling fan. Ran the sweeper and mopped the kitchen and bathroom floors. AH, it is good to have a clean house! At least for the moment, it won’t take long for the furballs and us to start dragging in the sand---oh, look here those little sandbags come now!
The rest of the day I was in a baking mood, cause I ended up making macaroni salad and papaya pie. Yep, I said Papaya Pie! Remember, I said we had bought a papaya at the farmers market and I wasn’t all that pleased with the taste. Well, I found a recipe for a pie using papaya. It turned out to be very good. The best way I can describe it’s taste is a peach pie. The papaya is cut into one inch chunks and cooked on the stove top for about 20 minutes with various spices. Then you add an egg to the mixture and pour it into a graham cracker crust. Pop in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes and.........there you have it.......a papaya pie! Oh my, will wonders never cease!
Ok, one last thing and that is a big Thank you to all of you that sent your compliments on my window treatment photos. I appreciated them all.......thank you.
