Love it

Mid-summer already.  Our household just started the beginning of an entire season of major bathroom remodeling.  Woohoo.  This was both expected and dreaded.  We knew it was coming.  Sink and leaking problems in one bath, tub leakage and several other problems in the master.  

Honestly, I'm excited because I love everything we picked out (especially the long awaited new whirlpool tub), but I know this will be a trying time.  I've got tons of articles to write, animals to watch over (so no one escapes or goes insane) and dust on every particle of free space.  

How will I do the cooking?  What will be easiest to accomplish?  Will the animals be fine and yours truly be the one to become a screaming lunatic?????

When you all read this, it will be the beginning of week 2.  Thankfully, we are in the middle of a heat wave-which is what we planned, no sense doing this type of work if you know that rain might be "afoot".

What works best for us is the use of the grill.  I know, I told you way back in one of my beginning columns that my feelings are "if God had meant me to use the broiler in my range, grills would have never been invented"-you'll be hearing that a lot in the next few months.

So how do you keep things interesting when trying to stay cool physically and mentally during time of duress?

Come back on Friday and I'll give you some of the dishes I've been using for the first couple of weeks!

Love it
