the last weekend in July that was

I'll be short and sweet here. I'm writing this Sunday night with the Sunday night blues and a lingering hangover. Not the best combination.
1 - Broken tile problems. WTF, right? And since the tile is so hideous and 1970s, it eventually has to be redone but not right now.
2 - Ghetto tile patch solution.  I'll add some grout and try not to ever look at it until it's time to redo it. It's ugly but it's better than a hole.
3 - Friday dinner was simple and awesome: grilled chicken, baked beans, cucumber salad
4 - Farmer's Market goods
5 - Canele
6 - What I'm reading and a little Essie Madison Ave-hue
Saturday afternoon we went to see Lauren & Kevin get married, went home to chill out, then off to the reception. Congratulations Dormans! It was a fun night. After the reception we went to a bar, which I did not need to do. I'm not even sure I was speaking English at that point.
Sunday I took the day off. No food prep, no chores, no blog until late. I dozed off and on and watched movies and House Hunters. It was excellent. My dad stopped by with (1) my new Dunkin mug from Carol, and I enjoyed not one but (2) two heirloom tomato sandwiches. They were so good I could cry.

Another Monday. Guess who I'm meeting for lunch today? Mrs. Axler, my fourth grade teacher who I wrote about last week.

I want to send Frank a huge happy birthday wish! Today is the day! Thanks again for posting the Friday Five Frank, it was a big hit.

Have a great one!
