remember a couple of days ago when we were enjoying watching the snow melt?
it sure is nice to see patches of ground! but we woke up to this, this morning:
so we went out together and shoveled the deck, the front steps, the cat paths. right now it's misty raining and the air is warm so there is much melting happening, thank goodness. this winter has been the most snow that anyone around here has seen in years! i am not complaining - we only lost power once but the other day our internet was down for a whole 24 hours!!! i imagine some people were near losing their minds without their internet - bahahahaha!
as jambaloney mentioned previously, he went to an ice-fishing derby on saturday. i went and spent the afternoon with my best buddy c in fourchu. we chatted at the kitchen table for a bit and then watched "marie antoinette" by sophia coppola - one of my all-time favourite movies. i love to read about historical figures and marie antoinette is one of my favourites, my favourite being, of course, Elizabeth I. i have a bazillion books on both of them but the majority of books about marie antoinette are not, shall we say, very favourable to her. i find that coppola's movie shows her in a much more believable and sympathetic manner. oh well, enough of my blathering. i had a wonderful afternoon with my besty and we went out to the ice fishing derby to cheer the men on. it was cold, slushy and wet, 3 things that neither of us care for, so we stayed for a bit and then went back to her house. her hubby b made a delicious hot roast beef sandwich for us, we had some of c's green bean casserole (it was to die for) and carrots and peas. when jambaloney returned later, they fed him, too. he was super hungry and i couldn't believe he ate all of the heaping, and i mean heaping, hot sandwich that b made.
anyway poor jambaloney is back under the house jacking up the floors. he just finished one spot that used to bounce when you walked on it (i know eh? jeesh!) but now it is solid as a rock - woohoo!
speaking of woohoo - how about a big giant dish of lasagna?
oh that baby was yummy!
well, we have been doing odd jobs around the house, keeping busy, playing cards on the plastic-wrapped porch naked when it's sunny out. just the usual kind of stuff.
i'll leave off with today's recipe over at the Framboise Manor Good Eats blog:
i call it "kick-you-in-the-head-hot/sour/sweet dressing or dipping sauce"!
well, that's it for now. jambaloney will have some scary posts about jacking up the floor coming soon!
