Hello friends ~ hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was quiet.
I went to a library book sale on Saturday and came home with these seven
books, all for $3.50. I'm reading Once Upon a Time, There Was You right
now. Elizabeth Berg used to be one of my favorite authors; not so much
anymore. Her old stuff was much better. I haven't given up on Elizabeth
though...I'm still hoping to find her old spark in her newer books.
I ordered a new kitchen rug from overstock.com and it was delivered in a few
days. I'm really happy with it - it's modern, bright, and fresh. Though I wish it
were more of a true yellow instead of a goldish-yellow. It's thin, like a cotton
rug (perfect for a kitchen), but yet it's 100% wool.
One of the dinner meals I made last week was Szechuan Peanut Chicken.
It was quick and easy to make and so delicious. I found the recipe here.
Oh - speaking of rugs - remember how I brought the white shag rug up
from the family room and put it in the living room? (Sorry for the grainy
picture - I didn't have the original anymore and had to re-use the one
from my blog.)
Well, getting-old-and-a-bit-senile Zippo decided that he liked the rug upstairs
well enough to use it as a litter box. It was just a little bit in a corner, so I blotted
it up and am using a product called Nature's Miracle that I got at PetCo. So far,
it's working a lot better than just plain vinegar. I didn't want to take any chances
of Zippo marking the rug again, so I moved it back downstairs. For some reason,
he doesn't bother the rug down there. Maybe because he's hardly ever downstairs.
So now the brown and white rug is back in place.
Happy Monday, everyone.
