Just The Facts Jack

Saturday, September 11, 2010


No story today, just the facts Jack. Oh yes, I have facts to share.

Fact one; I was not even going to post today. Saturday is becoming a busy day for me with Ms Twister home. Joy, Joy.
Fact Two; my house looks like a bomb went off in it. I need to get more in-tune with my surroundings.
Fact Three; the gate needs some repairing. I need to bolt a wheel on and install the automatic lock. I want to reconnect with my tools.
Fact Four; I must install the pedestal sink I purchased on the World’s Longest Yard sale. It does not look as good on the floor and again, reconnect with my tools.
Fact Five; I must rake the ever-falling leaves. I need to get in touch with the great outdoors and those muscles I haven’t seen since this time last year.
Fact Six; I must go help my father at his apartments. I want to try on my new biohazard suit. Nasty tenant moved out, left all sorts of weird things.
Fact Seven; I must play ball with the furry friends. With the summer we have had this was not an option and besides I want them to recognize whom they are about to spend the winter with.
Fact Eight; I must get out of this funk and grow up. Well, maybe just get out of the funk. I still want to go down a slide with Yvonne.
Fact Nine; I must dig deep in the freezer, select some frozen treat for dinner and then dream all day of turning it into a master piece. Can you cook an abstract dinner?
Fact Ten; I must take time for me. I need to refuel, rejuvenate, dream and change my oil. Dang, I sound like a want-ad. Anybody in need of slightly used, older model car?

There you have the facts for my day.

You guys have a wonderful Saturday. Peace…

Jules, if your house got hit and DL's house got hit, would you guys mind if I come by and get the stuff that blew out of mine? All writer's must have the same house. (insert your own pic here)

Great post Jules. Yvonne's pounds are like concrete at the moment despite my excercise bike and aerobic steps.There comes a time in life when you realise you're everything to others but nothing to yourself, so I'm with you about spending some time for you.

Enjoy the week-end.
Yvonne.

I think my house caught what I had a couple weeks or so ago-it's thrown up all over the place. Bless it!

I need to clean out my car, wash it, and scoop the litter box.

Maybe if we all do a post about the house cleaning fairies, and they read it, feeling the love and seeing our need, they'll come out of hiding. Do you think?

I really hope you get all that accomplished. I'm a notorious procrastinator and avoider....so for me, I'm not holding my breath.

Actually, I'm wondering what I can dig up for breakfast/lunch....

Hope you have a happy, productive, and relaxing weekend!

Reenergize by resting, close your eyes and you won't see the work.

If a bomb goes off in my house, it would start looking neater than it is!

I'm right with you on the funk escape! Okay, and the messy house.

Frozen dinner option: dredge chicken (thawed) in flour and seasonings, brown over high heat, lower heat, add onions, maybe potatoes and carrots until onions caramelize, then throw in some garlic, wine, water and a bay leaf, cover and simmer. When the chicken is almost done, steam fozen veggies and toss with brown butter and herbs. If you want make a sauce/gravy of the poaching liquid, add a little starch (corn starch, flour). Serve with more wine, maybe a fumé blanc.
