I have one random day off per week and today was the day. I try to be as productive as possible, cleaning the house, doing laundry, working out, etc. Today I decided to tackle the office, which has become our dumping ground for things we don't know what to do with. Here are some items I found:
8 old cell phones. EIGHT!
3 old cameras. 2 broken and one with pictures dating back to the Gekas's wedding- 4 years maybe? I might have to get them developed and do a post dedicated to them. Stay tuned.
I also found 14 computer games that are too old to work on our current computers, about 1,000 batteries, and at least 10 extension cords. At least I was able to identify, admit, and fix the problem before we ended up on Clean House. In other news, "Lost" was last night, and in keeping with one of my New Years resolutions, I made my first meal out of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I'm not going all "Julie & Julia" on you, because while I did make Julia's Filet Mignon with Mushroom and Madeira Sauce, I also threw down a big honkin' stuffed baked potato next to it.
One of my Christmas gifts from Michael was 20 year old balsamic vinegar which is really thick and sweet. So for dessert, we had vanilla bean ice cream with balsamic drizzled on top. It is really tangy and sweet on ice cream, similar to a chocolate sauce, but more tart.
And finally, I am finishing up the current book I am reading and it's time to decide which book on my bedside table I'll be tackling next. Suggestions?
