We are having a heatwaveeee and It seems that this will continue for at least 10 more days. But this is what summer is all about right? hot days, beach, BBQ, and well you get the idea. I remember my childhood summers in NY, gosh it was hot, sticky and so much fun. If I wasn’t outside playing with friends, or standing in front of a fire hydrant getting soaked I was definitely inside watching reruns. Which is something I still do, watch reruns 🙂
Baking and cooking was definitely something I was not planning on doing today. So, a cold dip and cheese platter with some cold cuts, olives, crackers, toasted bread was the menu of the day.. Artichokes are so difficult to find here. I usually bring back Artichokes from Greece, actually I bring back a lot of things from Greece. So, you can imagine how shocked I was when I found canned Artichokes in the supermarket. (I grabbed that can so fast hehehehe) Its one of those things that when you see it buy because you might never see it again.
After work, I sat in front of the TV and watched reruns of I Love Lucy. 🙂 The episode I watched today was “The Pioneer Woman”. It starts off with Lucy at the sink washing dishes and singing. Personally, I don’t know anyone who sings while washing 30 or 40 plates, bowls, cups etc. Anyway, she decided at one point to add up how many dishes she has washed the 10 years that she has been married. She came up with 290,000 dishes…I started to think if I were to add up the 30 years that I have been married and washing dishes how many dishes would that come out toooo??
Wishing everyone a nice weekend!!
