so I spent the last two days visiting mR up in Ventura and I come home to this. Mike decided to clean up and rearrange a bit while I was away. I have to admit I didn't like it at first, it felt more cluttered. But after seeing the stuff that he was able to store in the cabinet and take off the counter tops, it grew on me. and with the table turned the way it is, it actually feels like a dining room.
we're eating a homemade (a la Mike) rotisserie chicken, using some dry rub we sort of took home from a nearby BBQ place. turned out very yummies for our tummies.
did quite a bit of garage saleing and flea marketing with mR this weekend. picked up a few things, like a scale, a mini fan for work, some wire baskets, a card file, a metal tv tray, that yellow apron you see in the back along with some tea towels and a wooden wine box. the whole way home, I was thinking about having a garage sale of our own. it would help lighten up the packrat feeling we have around here.
got some new flowers for our table. $5 at the farmers market. yellow and purple really jumped out at me. they're not as fragrant as the other ones, but I like the bit of color they bring.
