The topic: Hi, hi, hi!!


Well, I got my goody bags together for the Disney trip next month.  I have the shirts left to do (seventeen of them, printed on both the front and back). 

I finished up with my one project yesterday, the one that made me realize that I’m really not a crafty person.  But this morning I’m feeling a lot better about it.  Since it’s done and all of the superglue is gone from my fingers.  I had a little on one of my thighs, but I was able to pick it off.

Brian worked late last night, didn’t get home until after eight.  And it seems a storefront job he was doing in La Jolla had more mirrors than he knew about and it has to be done by the time the inspector arrives on the job today, which may be as early as 8:30 this morning.  So, he’s gone already.  While he was in the shower, I made our daily ration of antioxidants and set the full cup on his bathroom counter.  He was still drinking it when he left, he’s taking it with him.  He left about ten minutes ago.  He’ll be back, I still have to make his lunch and he has to pick up his brother.

Dinner last night was a recipe out of one of the new cookbooks I got.  The one for the crockpot.  Here’s the recipe (it’s really good).


  • 3/4 inch thick round steak, cut into serving sizes

  • 1 medium onion

  • 1 can of condensed cream of celery soup

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

Slice the onion and place on the bottom of the crockpot.  Place the round steak on top of that.  In a small bowl, mix together the soup, pepper, thyme and oregano.  Spread over the steak.

Cook on high for six hours, on low for ten.

Serve with noodles.  I usually butter the noodles after I drain the water and toss with dried parsley flakes.  The vegetable I had with it was French cut green beans.  Excellent dinner.  And very, very quick preparation and easy to make.

By the way, I ordered one more each of those cookbooks and they’ll be prizes in future photo contests.  I’ll probably run the next one during the Disney trip.

So, today my plan is to get the shirts done, then start on the hallway closet.

Later.  *lol*
