A long, hot soak in the tub sounds good right now. Just finished, with the family, putting out tables and chairs, raking, picking up branches, sweeping, pulling up weeks, bagging leaves, mowing the lawn. Feels good to get something accomplished outside of the house after this long, horrible winter. My back feels like it is going to break though lol.

I did the vast majority of that a couple weekends ago when I put the clothesline up for business.  Haven't mowed yet, but that will likely happen some time this week.  I spent yesterday beginning my summer project of pulling the last of the carpets up.  My house has original hardwood floors; I immediately pulled out the carpets in the two bedrooms because the carpets were old, dirty and in need of restretching.  But the bedroom "hall", and the dining/living room area had brand new carpets and after the two bedroom carpet projects, plus the hell that was pulling down the wall paper borders that the former owner put in (just as sweet as she could be, but dear Lord her taste in wall paper border was heinous.  However, as my Mom said, I should be grateful she hadn't wallpapered the entire wall), I just left the new carpet alone.  I'm tired of them now and I wanted to see the condition of the floors in those areas (so I can plan for sanding/refinishing as the case may be).

Now I have a full trunk load of rolled up old carpet, bags of padding and boxes of tack strips and a lifetime supply of floor staples a smashed thumb (when the hammer hit it instead of the crow bar) and every inch of my body is annoyed any time I want it to move :)  And I still have the living room half of the dining room/living room area to go, but I hit the wall yesterday around 7pm (at 27 hours of being awake, and the last 6 of those hours of hard labor) and I knew today I needed to work on the baby quilt I'm making.  And upon waking, I knew I needed a day of physical rest.  So I've been working on the quilt, putting together supply lists for the qulting/sewing expo in Baltimore next month, and kicking back watching the Masters.

And the dining room, at least, will need sanding and refinishing, but there's no damage that can't be fixed.  I'll get to the living room next Sunday, since I have a sewing machine geek gathering next Sunday.

1. What's for dinner?  Jambalaya

2. When invited to BBQ's in the summer, what signature dish do you usually bring?  I usually bring something different each time-- I like trying out new recipes.  It also depends on who else is going to be there (some people always bring the same things, so I try to bring something different).  Or what the host or hostess has suggested I bring.

3. Where did your parents meet?  At Mr. Donut.

1. What's for dinner? Vegetarian State Fair pizza for Joel, Raw veggies and peanut butter for me. 2. When invited to BBQ's in the summer, what signature dish do you usually bring? No real "signature" dish ... I would rather do something new each time. Usually something meatless and something simple and raw so that I will know I can eat. 3. Where did your parents meet? Thru mutual friends.

1. Country style ribs,  probably the left over brown rice and asparagus from last night.

2. Do not have a signiture dish.  Since DH had some dietary limitations,  I make sure I bring something substantial that he can eat incase there is not much else on the menu that he can.

3. Through mutual friend/relatives.  My mom's uncle is married to my dad's niece.

1.  Have no idea.  DH is in charge of that todya.

2.  Whatever the hosts suggest.

3.  After 60+ years of marriage, it really doesn't matter.

1. No idea.  I haven't made any decisions one way or the other.  could just be a long, hot soak in the tub.

2.  I don't make a signature dish for other people's BBQs.  On the rare occasion the hostess expects her guests to supply the food for her soiree, I wait for her to tell me what she needs (usually within a food category) and then make something from it.  So it could be a side dish or it could be an appetizer or a dessert. And I try to make it complement whatever the hostess is supplying for the main course.

3. Not sure.  I know they had mutual friends from high school and that by the time they were in junior college, their respective peers were socializing together, but where they met?  Don't know.  Doesn't really matter 59 years later.
