I was pleasantly surprised this morning when these two guys showed up. I had no idea they were coming over but I was so happy to see them. Their papa is here helping Boppy clean out some stuff in the Garage Mahal which is Mr. Moon's garage which is huge and which is sort of on the edge of hoarderdom. A very old pick-up truck was recently found on the Craig's List which was in excellent shape and already painted and everything but which appears to be ready for delivery, mostly in buckets. So, in order to make room for the buckets and truck pieces and a space to put them all together, it's obvious that the garage needs to be cleaned up and cleaned out. At least a little bit.
So far an old cache of eggs was found (I knew those hens were laying somewhere else) which the boys had the pleasure of throwing into the woods (ooh- gross! that's disgusting!), the real and working truck is being filled up to go to the dump, and Mr. Moon has cut himself on an appropriately named Razor scooter.
That was a bit traumatic.
I pasted over it with that medicinal super glue which stings like hell and Mr. Moon yelled, "AAAGGGGHHHHH!" and then, "Paint it again!"
Then we laughed.
The cut is right on the meat of the hand below the first finger and I have no delusions that it's going to stay together, edge-wise, but we're tough around here. We don't need no stinking stitches.
Anyway, after tossing rotten eggs into the woods, Gibson was hungry for eggs and so I made him a small one-egg cheese omelet.
Sort of messy but delightful. That's my tiniest cast iron skillet. It's a skillette, perhaps.
Then I made myself one and ate it with a piece of toast.
So that's what's going on here in Lloyd today. I have no real plans. It looks like it's going to be raining off and on here for the next week so it would be awesome to work in the garden when it's not and get that ready for fall. I was thinking about mopping the back porch and that may actually happen. We shall see. I'm in good spirits and feel as if just taking things as they come may be the way to go.
Oh! Can I ask a favor of you? Since this house in Apalachicola IS going to be a reality and since I suppose I need to start thinking about a few things like, uh, kitchen design- could you please tell me if there is anything about your kitchen that you love and adore and that makes your life easier and more workable?
I've never designed a kitchen and have always simply worked with whatever was there. The designer we have hired had put a sink in the kitchen island which sounds ridiculous to me. Water everywhere. I mean, if all you do in your kitchen sink is rinse off plates and get glasses of water, I suppose that would be fine but my kitchen sink is used for everything from washing the dirt off vegetables to being a place that young'uns play in. So I nixed that idea but beyond that- I'm sort of at a loss. Even the idea of planning where the trash can will go is daunting.
So. If you have any ideas about this, let me know.
