Wow, I had big plans this week, but it is still SO HOT!!!! Heat index of 110 today! So, no cooking again tonight. We have actually done some grilling this past week, but absolutely no turning on the oven.
Remember last week’s takeout? Well, after working all day, I’m thinking of doing a repeat with different takeout. Tonight we are going really easy with pizza in the living room, on the coffee table with, horror or horrors, paper plates. I rarely ever use paper plates but they really actually have some pretty nice ones these days.
The roses were on sale at the grocery store for $4.99. They aren’t opening up real well, but hey, they were only $4.99 and I think they add a nice touch to the table.
The placemats are too big to fit horizontally, so, I just turned them the other way.
That is what we are doing around our home. What are you doing to stay cool?
