Why is it...
...that pumps in body lotion don't go all the way to the bottom and I always have two inches of lotion left and no way to get at it?
...I have to type, re-type, and type again the word verifications when I KNOW I typed it right the first time? Who comes up with those 'words' anyway?
It's been an interesting weekend. After my expression of love for the dentist, husb lost a filling. The heat pump/AC is limping along although the two window units do offer some relief. Okay -- a lot of relief --the windows in our bedroom are steamed on the outside. Went to our favorite breakfast place this morning to find it closed. And middle daughter has a case of shingles -- painful, but she'll live. I made foccacia yesterday -- twice. As I finished kneading the dough the first time, I knocked over a cruet of balsamic vinegar, shattering it all over the counter. I was almost certain none of it had gotten onto the dough, but I couldn't be certain. (Honestly detective, I have no idea how that glass got into him!!!) I cleared away the big pieces and found a great way to pick up the tiny shards of almost invisible glass. I just happened to have had a lump of dough to roll over the counter.
We'll have the glass-free bread and gazpacho with crab meat tonight for dinner, after we return from an outing to Great Falls, VA. We figure in this weather, just looking at the falls will be cooling! Photos to follow.
