Hold on tight. Let's get to it.
First off, let me tell you that I'm so effing tired of washing dishes!! "Dish pan hands" is no joke!
We did purchase a new dishwasher over the weekend. But, OF COURSE. . .it was out of stock. GAH! Instead, it'll be arriving on Thursday. Oh well, it's something to look forward to!
The big event of the weekend (yes, bigger than buying a new dishwasher) was taking out the new boat. I was holding off on talking about it until we actually got to use it. Sunday, we ventured out on our new Hobie Tandem Island. I took some pictures of it in the driveway. We were too excited to get any pictures out on the water.
Basically, it's a two person kayak that has a sail and peddles (or you can use old fashioned paddles). It has outriggers (amas) on either side and a trampoline that goes from the boat to the amas. Pat's been eying these boats for MONTHS.
Now, we just need a name for it. Ideas are welcomed!!
In addition to all that, the nieces spent the night Friday. Of course, they couldn't leave Hopey's (my) house without doing some arts and crafts. I just so happened to have some blank placemats and ball caps for them to paint. They LOVE to paint.
And let me share a creation of mine that's NOT jewelry.
YUP, that's bread. I MADE it. . . .without the assistance of a bread machine. And, OH BOY was it GOOD!! Take a closer look!
It's the crusty Italian bread from the recipe last week.
We liked it so much, I made cinnamon toast with it the next morning. YUM!!
