Luckily Not In South Park.

Snow in the north end, falling slush in West Seattle on the hill top. Cold rain in South Park. April is fooling with me — I’m ready for Spring.

So, last night I was sitting on the couch watching the news when my phone vibrated. That means an appointment in 15 minutes. I figured it was the notice to put out the garbage and recycling — but no. Helene is showing up for dinner in 15 minutes. I spaced out our dinner date. Oops. Good thing I thawed some chunks of tri-tip steak.

Helene showed up at 7 with flowers, wine and fruit — so that was covered. We chopped up the tri-tip and stir fried it with TJ’s Harvest Medley frozen veggies from the freezer, I had salad, and for the starch TJ’s Gnocchi (potato balls). Damned fine dinner for the spur of the moment.

So, did I mention that the house painting got finished on Monday. Finally. Only after a month of work interrupted by rain, snow, wind. At least it was cheap. Labor was under $1300. Paint and supplies a couple of hundred. Take a look:

Another run this afternoon, a possibly one during dinner.

Speaking of dinner, that would be Jill for dinner tonight. Pork, salad, might do a loaf of Challah now that I have chicken stock from a grocery store run this morning.

Back to work for me — got meeting notes for tomorrow to work on.

    The house looks wonderful! Very trim and tidy.

    What ever happened about the overspray on the cars?

    Sorry I missed your call the other week!
