Just a quick post before I jump into bed to try to catch up on some much needed sleep.
Didn't get the pantry floor tile finished today. Wait. We didn't even get one tile down. But the floor is all prepped and ready for it to happen tomorrow.
First thing in the morning, we have to make a trip to our carpenter friend B's house and workshop to pick up the cabinet frames she has gone. I'm really hoping for a sunny, breezy, not-too-hot day tomorrow so I can start putting the poly on them and the pantry door. I know they will need two coats and possibly three so I want to get started on them asap.
Today wasn't too hot but it was incredibly humid. Yuck. Like walking through water until late afternoon when a delightful breeze came along and made it easier to breathe.
I picked the whole strawberry patch today which was two days overdue. I knew there were a lot of berries out there but would you believe 22 pounds and 9 ounces? Seems like we might have another banner harvest year for strawberries. I'm not spending the time out there like I usually do and it makes me cranky to see all the weeds starting to take hold. Oh well, as long as the plants keep bearing, I'll have to settle for "not perfect" this year.
Tried a new strawberry pie recipe but wasn't too pleased with it. Although Papa Pea did have two slices and seemed to like it well enough. Chicken Mama stopped by tonight just in time for a piece with us. She and I thought it was like eating a dish of thickened strawberries. The filling didn't "gel" enough (it was a cold pie) and there wasn't enough crust (substance?) to balance the berry mixture. Could have used some whipped cream on top, too, but I didn't have any. My bad.
Okay, I'm toddling off to beddie-bye. Five-thirty tomorrow morning will be here before I know it!
