How are your hump days going? Awesome, I hope. Today was the first day of my “staycation” (how lame is that word, btw?), and I’ve been going non-stop since 9 a.m. The whole point of taking time off work was to get stuff done, and get stuff done I did.
A bazillion is number of errands I ran, and by 4 p.m. at Cedar Small Engine Repair, I had reached my breaking point. My poor PMS-ing ass came close to tears over the cost of an effing lawn-mower repair, and I have to say, it was not the most fun of times. Anyway, two things: 1. It’s tough being a girl. 2. I picked up a new-used mower for $65 tonight, and I’m super happy, as are my neighbors, who will no longer have to put up with knee-length grass in my front yard.
Aaannnnyway, I found this beautiful DIY and a mother lode of cheap doilies at Bibles for Missions all in the same week. Serendipitous, don’t ya think? I won’t walk you through the process, since the original tutorial does a good job of that, but here are a few pics of my finished product.
My sweetie and I are grilling shrimps tonight, so I have to dash and get the rice rolling. By the by, do any of you own Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook? If you don’t, you should, even if you love meat, as I very much do. If you do own said book, make the Coconut Rice with Toasted Coconut as soon as you can, if you haven’t already. It’s so damn yummy and makes any barbecue-esque meal 100 times better.
