It was a decent weekend. We went to see the house is progressing and it’s moving right on schedule so far. There will be delays at some point, but it’s so nice to feel like we’re getting closer.
I made Pistachio Drop Cookies with a white chocolate buttercream icing (I added some melted and cooled white chocolate to the frosting). They came out delicious! The cookies are pretty savory and the icing very sweet. It worked for us Wizard wants me to add theses to my Christmas cookies. I love how he assumes I’ll be making a bunch of cookies. I really should break down the cost of baking all these cookies and watch as his’ accountant’s heart battles his sweet tooth!
I spotted water on the counter behind the sink and mentally blamed Wizard. But once I got closer, I realized that was too much water for Wizard to not have noticed. He’d never leave a puddle like that. Then knowing it wasn’t me, and Maggie can’t reach the sink, I turned to the only other culprit possible — the dishwasher. I called Wizard to the rescue. He took off the hose, cleaned it out, made sure it wasn’t kinked, and it’s working great now. Even so, Wizard is going to replace the hose this week just to be sure. So glad that was an easy fix since that dishwasher is relatively new.
Maggie and I went on a walk, following the road they are building behind our new house to where it just ends into rugged land and a runoff for the hills. Maggie and I felt like we’d reached the end of the rainbow, but we didn’t find a pot of gold, darn it. The day was in the high sixties and low seventies with clouds. We won’t have many more nice days like that — soon it’ll full on summer heat all day and night.
Oh and I get text updates from Biker Witch telling me how she and my niece and exploring all over the Hawaiian island they’re on. They are soooo lucky I love them!
So that was my weekend, how was yours?
