Happy Friday everyone!

Thankfully-we picked out a new Bosch dishwasher that will hopefully be installed sometime this weekend.  Haven’t heard yet.

In the meantime-despite the use of paper plates, I have dish pan and very sore hands.  Obviously, despite my husband’s mindset, there are still a lot of pieces that have to be manually taken care of in this department!  Pots, pans, cookie sheets, silverware, etc...

Add all of this and my constant typing and you are reading the work of one very sore columnist here.  

Bearing this in mind-I’m keeping this very SHORT!

Last night our son, daughter-in-law and our older nephew from Santa Rosa came over for dinner.  I made BBQ beef ribs, a crudite tray with dip and hummus, pickles and artisan bread of two kinds:  rosemary and olive oil and roasted garlic. Thanks to our daughter-in-law and reserves from last weekend we had fruit salad and paletas for dessert.

Thankfully-tonight I’ll send hubby back to the grill with some mango chicken sausages, more of the bread to toast and we’ll use the fruit salad.

We‘re also trying to empty out the fridge-next week we‘re taking off for a family wedding for 4 days and that will quickly be followed by us being kicked out of our home and into a Residence Inn for the new floors to be installed.

To give you all a heads up right now-there will be no columns on the 27th and the 30th.  If things go “as planned in our heads“-I should be set up with my husband’s laptop at our temporary quarters in time for the September 3rd column.

Let’s all cross our fingers!

Love it
