Guess what? We made it through another workweek, and Friday is finally here. If that doesn't deserve a cheerful yellow dress (and a gin and tonic) I don't know what does. I don't know about you, but I always find the week after a holiday difficult, and I am looking forward to a couple days of loafing.
I'm back to doing snaps in the bathroom mirror again as Mr. ETB changed the bulb in the hallway ceiling fixture and it isn't working well for photos. It was an energy saving LED light, and the shadows are just horrible. I'll have him change it back at the weekend, but for now, I'm back to the mirror. Admit it, you missed my shower curtain.
The kitchen light isn't much better as I have a fluorescent overhead fixture. Believe me, I've tried every room in the house and it turns out the best light is upstairs in the bathroom...at least until we need to replace a light bulb, and we'll be back to square one. First World problems, I know.

I love the ties on these sleeves are just so nice however...sometimes I forget what I'm wearing and they start feeling like something is crawling up my arm! After all those years on the farm living with wolf spiders, I'm still a little paranoid. I had one run over my bare foot once as I was hanging laundry and it was HUGE! We get Brown Recluse spiders here too but as the name suggests, they avoid people and they're so small you'd hardly notice. I use caution going into undisturbed boxes, drawers, and closets, but otherwise I don't spend too much time worrying about them.
I spent a few hours today making pot sticker dumplings with Danny. He'd been interested in learning, and as he cooks supper on Friday, I thought it would be a good opportunity to show him how it is done. The dough for the wrappers is just flour, water and salt but learning how to handle it takes some practise. I'm pleased to say he did a great job, and we now have several dozen dumplings in the freezer for future meals. The way my hands have been lately, my dumpling forming days might be nearing an end (last night's meal slipped from my hands and fell flat on the floor beneath the casserole dish. I laughed as I scooped it into the bin, but only to keep from crying) and if he enjoys eating this sort of thing it might be best to learn how to prepare it himself.
I'm off to buy a better light bulb. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
