Girl stuff and boy stuff
As we move forward into the next phase of our remodel and recovery, I have been busy feathering and fluffing the upstairs where we are "pitching camp" and Matt tries to stay out of my frustrated way while I cuss and fuss about not having my shit together yet!! You see, I wanted to have a cute little kitchen area, dining area, sewing space, sleeping quarters and organized bathroom . Well, all of the above have collided into one another and the crock pot might be next to the computer which is next to the suitcase filled with summer clothes which is near the shop vac, which is next to the dorm fridge which is dangerously close to the double hot plate near the basket of rotting produce that I just can't seem to cook fast enough... I try to create vegetarian gourmet dinners for two by candlelight!! Well, OK, maybe just hummus and jicama.None the less, we are ridiculously happy. We have wedding bartending gigs on the weekends with Royers Cafe at gorgeous Texas Ranches and beautiful Country Homes. We are on our feet 9 hours serving cases of wine, beer and "signature cocktails" like Peach Bellini and Texas Tea. The eye candy is a feast as the rich city folks come to the country for a good time! We giggle at the "costumes" of Cowgirl Boots and lace. Now you may wonder about that little furry faced critter...we had a family of squirrels move into our downstairs and we had to spend several days figuring out a way to evict the entire family gently. Mission accomplished. And curently Matt and I are the only inhabitants in this big ol house! And we are lovin every minute of it! Well, OK, until dinnertime!! I can't wait to be back in my Cocina Grande!
