We’ve owned our home for a little over two years now and one thing that we’ve realized is with home ownership, the projects never end. It’s going to take a long time, but one room at a time, we’re making the house nicer. Yesterday was spent focused on the master bath. It went like this:
• watch True Blood (Season 4 finally on DVD) while paint dries
• watch True Blood
I can’t say it’s a bad way to spend a Saturday. After a while though, we got tired of paint and vampire kings and focused our attention on dinner. I’d bought some frozen swordfish at Trader Joe’s the other night and wanted to make skewers for the grill.
My friend Emily texted me around 5 asking what we were doing, so we invited her and her boyfriend Brian over to grill with us. We had drinks: watermelon mojitos and beer.
And for the main course, swordfish kebabs and chicken and bison burgers for Jason, Brian and Emily.
I was getting bitten up, so we moved inside to eat, but then headed back out for dessert: grilled nectarines. The picture doesn’t really do these any justice; they tasted like pie filling.
