We'll Just Keep Counting Down to Zero

We got far less accomplished than we might have hoped this weekend. On the other hand, I think we're collectively in a better mood, so I'm going to take that as a big plus.

The kitchen reconstruction continues. We have put more things back into place while waiting for the last couple of things to be sorted out. I have ordered a new power strip for the charging shelf, which should work better than any available power strip that we have. In the meantime, the Alexa and the security system have left the family room and gone back to their perches there and look almost like they were meant to be there.

Gretchen also cooked the third (or fourth, depending on whether you could the grilling from two weeks back) meal in the new kitchen, as she made a chicken pot pie with a cornbread crust which was quite tasty. Given the amount of time that the kitchen lay fallow, we keep finding things in the refrigerator that absolutely, positively need to be thrown out, but that's pretty much par for this course. Oh, look! More moldy cheese...

We didn't manage to get the garage cleaned up yet, so I'm still parking outside, but given that Gretchen has been consigned to parking outside for several years, I can hardly complain. We'll get to it.

And the last of my shirts went through the wash, so they are clean and the hamper is empty.

At least until I head off for bed and consign my current shirt there.

Which is next on the agenda.

In other news, we will be watching the season finale of "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" again in the near future. Maybe more than once. :)
