This morning was our first official pot-luck dinner where we are now going to church. I took meatballs and gravy, rice, and a lemon cake. But, I was out of lemon juice with which to make the lemon drizzle icing, so after Tony and Thad went to class, I ran over to the local grocery store to get some lemon juice.
While traversing the aisles looking for a pair of tweezers (’cause mine got lost somewhere in the move and I finally remembered to get some), I heard the following advertisement piped in with the the music.
“Brookshire Brothers has a wide variety of Hy-Top cheese to meet all of your cheese needs.”
I have, in my life time, eaten my fair share of cheese–probably MORE than my fair share, but just the phrase “cheese needs” nearly sent me into hysterics. Cheese needs, indeed.
And now for some photos. The first two are my dirty kitchen. My kitchen was very, very clean for the first two weeks in our home. . .and it’s been clean since. . .but it looks like this right now. I held the camera up very, very high so you could look DOWN upon the dirtiness.
This is Thad playing Pirate Legos while I was making a lemon cake and getting the kitchen dirty.
And, finally, Carolyn–this one is for you. You can tell Jeff that he did NOT haul the lamp to Houston in vain. We have no curtains–it doesn’t really matter as the only people who can see us are the deer. There are no street lights, so it’s black as pitch. I do hope to someday have curtains–but for now we enjoy the view.
