Barter payment, chili and working through an injury
Happy Monday loverlies!
It was a nice weekend, not too busy but just busy enough. We went to this one farmers market for the first time this year. I can't believe we haven't made our usual rounds this season. We got there a little late so most of the stuff we wanted to get was already sold out so we only came away with a zucchini and a banana pepper for the Mr.
One of our friends who owns an antique/upcycle store paid the Mr for his computer prowess by letting me take home this molding I was eyeing for the remodel.
It was worth the price they had on it to me but even better in trade! I thought some of the scratches were deep but they were only surface so it should be a quick sand down then I can start painting it. Braaaahoooo!
Oh yeah, like our current dining table up there? It's a folding buffet table I've had for years, like a long TV tray. It's not the most comfortable solution since we have to straddle the ends to eat there but you do what you've gotta do. I've got my table top curing in the garage and have to do a few touch ups on a leg then I'll poly the legs and we'll move 'er in the house. I'd like to give another full week of curing in the house and keep anything off the top so we might have to keep the folding table in the living room. I know that's news to the Mr. D'oh.
I made the first chili of the season yesterday.
|(I didn't have a charged camera but we had this sans the bread butt)|
So last night's workout was a walk around the city in the sweltering humidity but at least it wasn't using my arms in any way. Later on when we got home, we did IT band stretching session so that we would hopefully not be so gimpy today.
Oh yeah, I've got a new recipe coming soon.
Try not to faint.
How was your weekend?
