I just finished closing off the one porch so snow doesn't take it over this winter.
I will miss the view.

I think I finished my snit about having to have MORE work done on my brand new furnace. I'm sitting here waiting to hear when they are going to arrive to fix the gas leak.

One of the cookbooks was called Low Fat and Healthy and the other one is called C&H Sugar Complete Dessert Cookbook.

ROFL!!! I find myself doing things like that, too!

If I feel like living dangerously, I may take the hurrican shutters off the kitchen window today, even though hurricane season doesn't officially end until Dec. 1. I've missed being able to see into the back yard since June 1, and might even get some fresh air in the bargain. I put the shutters up on a couple of windows so that I wouldn't have to struggle with all of them at once in the event of a storm.

Besides the view (which my one dog enjoys, too), it means I should go out to the end of the porch and do a visual before I let my dogs into their "potty area). Otherwise instead of going out to the end of the porch and hanging a right, they may decide something needs changed off the property and hang a left
I really look forward to taking that plastic down in the Spring.

I have a plate and a fork. Would be happy to test your pie, Andy. Looks scrumptious!

I'm doing laundry and trying to decide what to have for dinner. I know it's going to include ground beef and some sort of pasta side dish with a veggie.
