My week has been pretty calm, which is life speak for a little boring but stress free 🙂 But I do have some pictures to give you some idea of how my time passed:
We finally installed our counter tops! YAY!!!!! I think David did a great job and we are so close to having our kitchen completed!!!! I wanted black counters, but I was afraid that since our cabinetry is white that if we put in a solid black top it would make the kitchen look a little sterile. I was hoping the silver gray would soften it some and I think it did. Thank Goodness. It really worried me that it would not work out…It would be an awfully costly mistake on my part.
Also, we have been trying to eat a little healthier. We are not going crazy, but I need more grains and cut out the fried food. And ever since I watch an episode of “How it’s Made” featuring Couscous and Quinoa, I’ve been more than a little intrigued as to what they would taste like…..and now I do. The Couscous tastes okay and kind of reminds me of rice. The texture is mushy and it’s the mushiness that gets me. The Quinoa reminds me of the pellets that is in a stuffed teddy bear. It’s kind of gritty and has a funny after taste. Needless to say, these were not a favorite at my house and I don’t they will ever be on our plates again, lol…
Also, I have everything ready to sort and organize my beads. I bought the black boxes from Ikea and I can’t even begin to tell you how well these are made. Although Ikea has many sizes, these are CD/DVD storage cases. I think they sell them 2/3.99. I like them so much, that when we redo our living room I am going to use these to sort out our movies and music.
See I have been drawing;) This one is going to take a long time…But I do have an ear partially done…
Well I guess that’s about it for me, for now. Exciting stuff, huh?
Be Well and Happy!

Look for some recipes for coucois and quinoa. They need something added to be good (imho).
i turned vegan over a year ago…and still can’t abide coucois or quinoa.
Vicki, It was seasoned, and it still wasn’t good.
Big Girl, I don’t know how you do it! I love veggies, but I have to have a big slab of meat, LOL
I believe people eat couscous and quinoa because the names are fun to say:)
