Hers · His · House · Ours

On this 7th Day of Christmas – Sunday

Not all days of Christmas are glamorous.  Some days have mundane tasks.  This morning started with one of those, pick up of the dog yard.  We woke up to a frozen world.  A very good time for poo pickup.  Not my favorite task, but now done!

After a thorough washing of hands, we headed out to breakfast.  Acme was our choice this morning.  The plan was to pick up a pound of their ground coffee.  Sadly, no ground coffee.  We made a plan B for the ground coffee.  The special for today was the Prime rib hash.  I wanted to try their sourdough pancakes.  Being that I don’t like any maple syrup other than 100%, I asked for their mixed berry jam.  yummmmmm.  Partner had the Chicken fried benedict.  He seemed pleased.

Once fortified, we headed to Partner’s parent’s house to check on them and their new puppy. At their house, all is well.  The puppy, named Abbey, is settling in.  She is shedding her shyness and learning to come when her name is called.

On our way home we made a stop at Black Rock.  We got our travel lattes and asked for a pound of ground coffee… again we were unlucky.  Then onto Home Depot for another washing machine drain tube.

The last one had rubbed on something underneath and worn a hole in it (I think I already mentioned this).  I was eager for this, due to only having finished one load of laundry and none of it was clothing. After returning home, it wasn’t long before Partner finished his repair and my laundry got back underway.

I worked on painting the office for most of the rest of the day,

This is wear I ran out of the blue paint.  I have another can, I just didn’t want to open it yet.


in this picture you can see the Mushroom Risotto color (darkest), the color that I had painted last time (before running out)(medium), and the original color (lightest)


interspersed with breaks for a little ironing.

I made a sad discovery.  I seem to only have 3 of the 12 dish towels that I embroidered several years ago.  It makes me wonder where the other 9 have gotten too?

Am I the only one that finds things that have gone completely missing?  Hope your 7th day of Christmas was a good one!
