Morning all. I brought in some cinnamon buns. I made WAY too many yesterday. I was just sort of in my own little world and by the time I tuned it to how much I was making it was far too late. Great recipe, just way too many for us to eat.

You guys ever read a series by an author and just LOVE it, then read something else by the same author and it just doesn't grab you at all? This Kelley Armstrong I'm reading is just OK. I'll donate it when I'm done. Maybe someone will enjoy it more than I have.

Did I see the chairs made it in? Lovely! Anyone see kadesma these days?

I'm reheating one of those for my lunch kadesma! YUMMERS! Thanks for those. I just got back from a funeral. Blech. I'm at the stage of life where we are attending funerals for our parents and our friends parents. I dread the next stage.

Just catching my breath before I run out to do the grocery shopping I neglected to do yesterday.

When my daughter died, there were about four more deaths in the family in quick sucession. It took a lot out of me. Since then, there have been notices of folks I went to school with. I just send a card to the family.

OK all! I'm back from grocery shopping and I thought I'd put together a fruit plate to nibble on. Pineapple, blackberries, grapes, canteloupe and strawberries. I think I'll grab another one of those burritos kadesma left. I'm starved.

Heading for the library...

Bubba and the brothers D will be taking tomorrow off. The framing work is complete and the tyvek house wrap is in place.

Next week the roofers will be out. Get ready for lots of hammering. You may be acquainted with the foreman. Goes by the name of Dwayne Schneider. He used to be a building superintendent back in the 70's and 80's in Indianapolis, Indiana. He still just as obnoxious as he ever was but I was able to trade him a side of beef to furnish the labor for this job.

Bubba picked out forest green 30 year architectural shingles. He said that you were such a good group and all that he would donate them to make up for the whole 2nd story thing.

dwayne schneider. i remember schneider-- a walking, swaggering tool belt. a lightweight sleaze with an overblown ego. he's in charge of building our roof? it figures...so far, bubba is turning out to be the shining star of our construction cast of characters--the creme de la creme....

so nice and quiet here today, without the workers. i can actually hear my coffee brewing. mmm, smells like fresh-ground coffee beans in here. let me see if i can scrounge up some good munchies in this fridge... look at all the magnets decorating the refrigerator door--odd pattern too. just so long as the magnet letters don't start spelling out words...when we get our suggestion box set up in here i'm going to strongly 'suggest' that ghosts not be allowed anywhere on the dc coffeehouse premises.

oh god, i can hear the protests from pf and pag already, and their ghost sympathizer buddies....

Nothing scary about ghosts...they are just friends and family checking in on us.

I don't get any coffee (caffiene) today...I got up at 4:30 this morning for my last cup for over 24 hours...then I went back to bed.

No baking today, either...makes me want coffee.
