Does anyone else remember the Soup Nazi
from Jerry Seinfeld? Today, Mr. Biff brought
me home the best Muligatawny Soup I've
EVER had.....I can just hear Kramer begging
Elaine to go and get in line to get some.....
Honestly - I am not getting any payoff for this...but
if you live on Vancouver Island - you simply
must try the new restaurant at the Nanaimo
Howard Johnson - it's run by
"The Good Cooking Guys"
and man, they are!
On the subject of eating soup - I puttered today
perplexed still by the sad state of my entertainment
armoir.....I took these sad photos today and
you can see it hasn't improved since I wrote
about it here.
This is the before - sanded down... and below is
with the first coat of paint...."yikes" is right!
Didn't stick AT ALL.....you can tell what I will
be doing...resanding and priming....such FUN!
Oh yeah, I was going to talk about
eating soup wasn't I? I have vacation brain,
don't laugh - it's a serious malady - I am
deliciously devoid of coherent thought and/or
through processes....where was I?
I was puttering.....enjoying the great weather
sitting on my deck swing and painting the
letters...E A T.
I found this cool frame and thought the letters
would fit perfectly. I am still in the process of
taking the red out of my house (I still LOVE
red) but it was time for a change. So this
little sign is step one to re-doing my kitchen
I also spray painted this plastic mirror - it
turned out rather well I think....the little lantern
is one of my fab finds from Skiff City and is
pictured in the pile in this post. It's all
I used "Distress" Ink on both the letters
and the mirror....easy-peasy distressed look!
Have I mentioned that my hydrangeas are
kind of weird...they must be
a different variety - they are nice to look at
but you can't dry them like the cool ball kind...
but Marcie likes them.
Did I mention I was a little scattered....
*giggling* see you tomorrow,
