I took a night off from working on the house. I really needed that. We did however go to the store and get a few things that we needed. My wife got a few swatches of paint colors for the wall we will have to paint. I got all the supplies, and hopefully enough joint compound to finish up the dry walling. Fingers crossed! We also decided, since we got the chimney inspected that we should have a fire. This is in part to figure out how to work the wood burning insert with a blower, and to have a relaxing evening.
Sorry about the picture quality. This was taken by only the light of the fireplace, and on my smart phone, then screen capped from Instagram. As if that isn’t enough I then e-mailed it to myself and cropped in in paint, before saving it and uploading it….damn that is a long process.
Today at work I realized that I had forgotten to pack myself a lunch. Our office orders out from a different place everyday, and allows us to place an order and pay for our lunches at the end of each week. I was helping one of the guys in shipping this morning and told him I forgot my lunch and that I would have to order. I took his suggestion and bough what is called a “South Pacific” sub. It is a pizza sub, with chipped steak throughout. He said to add mushrooms and banana peppers, so that is what I did. I haven’t ever been afraid to try new things. I have always been able to give everything a shot no matter what. I wasn’t sure how it would taste, but it wasn’t bad. I think what I didn’t like about it was that it was greasy from the steak and the pepperoni. That kind of upsets my stomach a bit. Other than that it was surprisingly good. I guess the place we bought from today uses that sub as somewhat of a staple food. They are the only ones that make it and people love it, and swear by it. I wouldn’t do all that but it was good.
Tonight I will be grinding on that joint compound trying to get a few more layers on before I sand it all down. It will look really nice in the end. When we get the lights and counter top on I’ll let you see!
That is about it for me today. I hope you all have a great hump day and I’ll see you back here tomorrow! 😀 😀
