or at least getting my messy house in order before tax season is coming along. My blogging friend, Linda, painted me this coffee picture a long time ago - and I framed it a couple of months later - and I finally found the perfect spot for it. Isn't it cute? I think of her every time I turn on the teapot.
Today my friends, Tom & Al, came by and put up my little shelf in the kitchen and re-arranged the advertising signs to accommodate the new addition. I wanted a space to store some spices I use all the time as well as my jar of bread machine yeast.
So after I tidied up the kitchen counter and washed the jars and generally cleaned up my mess from all the Christmas baking and other disasters, I made a nice loaf of bread.
Aggie and I sampled the crust. Looks like we're having grilled muenster cheese for dinner...
Not a great photo - I'll probably have to take one with the flash after dark - but the guys also put up the curtain rod for my new office valance. It's sort of a sage green and beige stripe; the rod is aluminum that looks like bronze and the finials sort of go with the finials on the lamps.
And I was so excited about the window valance and the shelf, I forgot to feed them cake!
It's Aggie's fault - she didn't remind me.
