Simple Sunday and Not much happening post.

Beautiful weather going on in Northern CA right now. We hit 72 degrees yesterday. Just lovely.

Our Japanese maples are all leafing out but not the oaks. Too early for them.

Today, I plan on painting the board for the shelf as the bracketts showed up yesterday. It’ll take at least 2 coats of paint. I haven’t started the entry way yet but did do the trim the other day. Maybe tomorrow.

This is my week off from Velcade but I still need to go to Sacramento to see the doctor. My labs should be there by Wednesday. I’m still guessing that we do Round 4 and 5 and skip 6. At that point, it may not be relevant to do another round. Since I’m not a doctor, I’ll leave that up to him.

I put out my vintage Easter cards and a few little ceramic chicks I have. I’ve got rid of most seasonal decor but do keep a few little things. Of course, we don’t celebrate Easter anyway but the decorations can be cute!

This week is the Living room zone for Flylady so I’ll do a tidy up there later. As the title of the post suggests, not much going on here although B is knee(shoulder?) something deep trying to get the garden shed put together. It looks like a giant jigsaw puzzle to me and definitely not my thing. I’d give up in a second and hire someone.

We had a huge cobb type salad for dinner last night and tonight I plan on another big salad with a piece of Ahi tuna grilled. I don’t think I’ll fire up the Weber since the Ahi would only take a few minutes on each side. So ,not worth the charcoals. I bought some feta so I think I’ll make a spanakopita this week too. In one of the Ina Garten books I saw a recipe looked good. In my monthly rotation I keep 2 slots open for a new recipe. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. I also saw a recipe for Spanish tortilla which is not a tortilla but thin potato slices then a layer of chorizo( I was going to use soy chorizo) and then beaten eggs and I think cheese was in there too. It was a NYT recipe.

Spring !

image imageI had gone to Target on line to find this great spring tablecloth. I just love the birds. I was going to make curtains out of this but the dimensions are just a little off.

So, I put it on the table with a new bunny. I rarely buy any thing like this anymore, but I am a sucker for Easter stuff.

My sinuses are really bothering me today, and I hope I’m not getting a cold. I feel kinda off. I’m taking extra vitamins and my Chinese herb combination which always seems to ward things off.

Next week we are off to the coast for our first camping trip. The weather looks great. Since there’s probably no wi fi , I won’t be blogging but I maybe able to find a signal.imageAnother vintage post card.
