The roads were pretty well salted and Ken made it to work just fine - no problem at all.
I did decided not to go to my knitting group this morning though.
I was in the mood for pancakes so I made some for breakfast. Nothing fancy today, just a pancake with syrup but very good anyway.
In the old house there was a bottom cabinet in the kitchen that pulled out for trash and recyclables. I didn't have that at this house and really missed it. We measured one of the cabinets here and realized that the insides of the old cabinet would fit perfectly in a bottom cabinet here. So that is just what we did. Now once again I have my pull out for the trash.
This weekend is a train weekend for Ken so I have decided to do a little project here at home on my own. I will be painting my loft. Today I starting getting ready by taking pictures off the walls and moving all the furniture and various projects to the center of the room. Since I hate the taping part, Ken said he would do that for me. I haven't picked the exact color yet but it will be a pink. A nice bright cheery color. I would like to get some low white cabinets with doors on them from Ikea. Then I can organize things better and keep the loft neater than I have been.
Here are a couple of before pictures.
By the afternoon the temperature has moved up to 38 and the ice is pretty much melted. Still a cloudy gray day and more icy weather is expected tonight and into the morning.
I'm thawing out some chicken for supper tonight. I wanted to try something new so I browsed around on MealsMatter and found a chicken recipe that I will be trying tonight. If it's any good I'll post about it tomorrow.
Last year I read the book Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet and now we are watching the mini series. We've watched the first disc from Netlix and there are two more. It is very good and so far has been very good at following the book. I have not read the sequel to the book but I plan on reading it soon.
A happy day to you. Hope you're staying warm and safe if you live in one of the many places where there is snow and ice.
And if it is sunny and warm where you are, enjoy it!! :-)
A smile from me to you.
Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths.
No man or woman really knows what perfect love is
until they have been married a quarter of a century.
