A weekend update, Studio McGee, a delightful film and so much more on Monday morning musings.
Good Monday morning friends, did you have a nice weekend? I had a lovely weekend, Saturday I puttered in the yard for a bit, went to the farmers market and then started stocking my kitchen. It is so exciting to see all of my dishes and baking pans again. A lot of which was never unpacked from the move last year because we anticipated starting the renovation much earlier than we did.
Sunday morning I woke to the rumble of thunder and lightening illuminating my room. I sat and watched the light dance across the sky for some time before the skies opened up and the rain began lashing the house. After two hours the rain let up but the day was dark and moody.
Can you believe September is just a week away? It’s almost Fall y’all and I cannot wait! No, I am not wishing away summer, we still have trips to the pool, a concert in the park, a bbq and lots more fun planned before Fall.
I used my new ovens for the first time, the pumpkin bread came out perfect as did the cookies. My homemade caramel was a failure. I was trying to do too many things at once and at the crucial stage where you pour in the cream I poured in a cup instead of a half a cup. I ended up with caramel “soup” instead think creamy caramel sauce.
Today the electricians are finishing up their last few projects and the dishwasher and vent are getting installed. After that, all that is left is painting, and the last of the backsplash. By September 1st I believe the kitchen will be finished, minus the refrigerator, one latch and the handle for the dishwasher.
Now onto 5 things.
