To the moon... for cheese?
do you have any idea how many ways one can eat bread and cheese?
i do because it’s what i have been living on for some months while my kitchen is being renovated. i enjoy cheese on white, whole wheat, plain or toasted, sliced, whizzed, chunked , grilled, mustarded. i change up the menu occasionally with jam or honey. i spice things up once in a while with pickled herring and have picked up pizza and chicken a couple times. i also stopped once for a ham and swiss only to be told they don’t use swiss anymore. shows you how often i do that, right?
i have very good friends who have brought me food or invited me out from time to time. what would i do without you?
The ongoing renovation to my kitchen has gone very well. at one point things were about two weeks ahead of schedule but that has now caught up to itself and we are back on the original track.
i am in the waiting stage now. when the arrival of the cupboards was moved ahead the things needing to be done prior to that had to be done much more quickly. electrical, dry wall and painting had to be done before the new floor went down which had to be done before the cupboards came. since i did all the priming and painting myself there were some late nights, very few breaks and some extremely sore muscles but i got it all done in time for floors. The cupboards have been delivered but as of this writing, i am waiting for installation.
The stove was moved back in after floor was put down but is surrounded by cardboard boxes of cupboards so cooking is still not efficient. i can manoeuver in to heat a pot of soup but basically i am still in the cheese and bread stage.
i will let you know how it’s going as things progress.
here are some new words for you. some i have heard so often but was unsure if i really knew what it meant.
Patrician – a person of noble or high rank; a person of very good background, education and refinement. (This has been used to describe george h.w. bush.)
dispositive – relating to or bringing about the settlement of an issue.
gentrification – process of renovating and improving a house or district so that it conforms to middle class standards: process of making a person or activity more refined or polite; restoration of run down urban areas by the middle class resulting in displacement of low income residents. (This sounds like a good thing but the consequences for the poor is obvious and very seldom addressed.)
