- Baking gingersnaps tonight for the staff party tomorrow. Also testing a cheese straw (or rather disc) recipe, for some savory deliciousness. (Later note, the cookies were a big hit. I sent out the recipe to the staff with witty commentary, which perhaps I will post here.)
- Very good field trip to the national Building Museum yesterday. The kids built a house and a geodesic dome. That is such a beautiful building!
- I’ve been trying to post for days, but I keep falling asleep in my chair.
- So I had an electrician come to fix a little home improvement project that I should not have attempted on my own. He did a great job, but unfortunately, since he left after Paul had gone to work, he locked the bottom lock on the door, which we never use, and for which, I for some reason, no longer have a key on my ring. So I had to have a locksmith come, adding to the total electric repair in a notable fashion, since it was overtime.
- All these deferred maintenance projects, though needed, are definitely banging up my bank account. If only I could dip into maintenance reserve! If only I HAD a maintenance reserve!
