This lovely music is part of the good. Enjoy while you look down the post!
At the Market
This falls into the category of odd things. Do you know what it is?
I think it's a cherimoya, given that it's the most expensive thing on the price list -- and the largest.
They are bigger than my head. Bigger than a big pumpkin with spiky, soft green points. I have no idea what to do with them so I did this. I love the internet. Now, what to do with all the other things. Maybe I'll buy one and see! Chopped in my own kitchen!
What's Up with This?
This one threw me for a loop. It's a horrible photo but Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer seem to be doing the twin thing. Think they called each other in the morning? "Hey, Andy! What are you wearing to work today?" "Oh, I'm wearing the blue tie, black suit and white shirt. With glasses." "Oh boy! Me too!" Go figure.
Alert the media! I finally got a big HD TV set -- 40 inches! So far, I'm just watching regular cable still.
(Yes, I know. I worked in TV for more than three decades. It just wasn't a priority to see it big.) But now I'm getting ready to get Acorn and Netflix! Woo hoo!
I shouldn't go into Home Goods without a keeper. The other day I went in just to look and came out with six pillows. (Two for fall because if you don't get them now, they are gone next week.) These were my favorites!
And I couldn't resist this table runner! Isn't it pretty?
I shouldn't be spending money on such frivolous things because while this next thing doesn't count as shopping, it is expensive. The other day when I went to the basement to check Lizzie's litter right after I got out of the shower I noticed a serious amount of dripping. The plumber said the pipes were fine. But there are cracks in the tile, the lead pan at the floor of the shower is either leaking or worn out. End game? Tearing out all the shower tile/floor, probably the dry wall and having it redone. To the tune of approximately $8,000. I paid less for the foundation on my cottage. He can't get at it for another five weeks -- good thing I have a second shower!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Rick is hosting a classical guitarist from Italy so we threw together a bit of a spur of the moment gathering to welcome him.
We held it at Rick's house. The food was pretty simple. Meats and cheeses, crostini and bread, cookies and wine.
I love doing this. Especially when the cooking is so easy! I did most of it at my house then brought it down the street.
That's Giorgio you're hearing if you clicked the youtube link above! We were delighted that he performed for the guests!
They were delighted too!
Just for Fun
Remember that jigsaw puzzle I did from one of my photos? I was sure it must have a piece missing.
I was wrong! Glad to see that one done!
And I've been painting and drawing too. More on that later but here is a sneak preview!
Just for Not-Fun
I spent 12 hours in the ER this week and it turns out I need gall bladder surgery (a stone or two) and maybe pneumonia. I'm less confident of that than the ER was because I sure don't feel like pneumonia. The the gallstone? Oh yeah. Swell. They could have done surgery in the ER but I want to get my doc's recommendation on a surgeon so I am eating very boring food between now and whenever that is! And not drinking wine, which is sad because I'll miss the popping part of Cork Poppers!
And finally, I had to share a couple of pictures of our Baby Grand. These were taken when he was about two weeks old!
We saw him last night and he's a whole lot bigger! Meanwhile, here he is back then -- Easter basket glory!
We are so in love!
Happy to join in Monday Social, Share Your Style and Share Your Cup this week! Happy Easter Week!
