It's Monday, what's new with you?

Tonight I tried a new recipe -- grilled boneless/skinless chicken breasts with a peanut sauce. I gotta say ... I was not thrilled. My sweet husband almost without fail compliments my food, and he dutifully said, "the chicken is good," but I noticed that he didn't eat all of his ... hmmmmmmmm.

So anyway, nothing ventured, nothing gained. It's not something I'll make again, but it didn't hurt to try!

The heat is still oppressive. We think our A/C units need to be serviced (we have two), because the house is just not cooling properly. Hope it's not going to be a huge expense! Anyway, I'm going to call the guy tomorrow. So time will tell... In the meantime, we are guzzling iced tea like there's no tomorrow.

Here's a shot of our breakfast area. It's pretty with the morning sun shining in. The shelves are full of cookbooks, and they are not nearly all I have. (It's a sickness, what can I say?)

Chance's favorite spot is here:

He can see what's going on in the neighborhood, if any dogs are daring to walk down his street, etc.

Finally, here's a shot of the fireplace area in our den. The picture above it is not a final choice -- it's just there temporarily until we find one that we agree on and that's the right size and scale. It's a process, and one that is taking longer than I thought. Oh well, it's okay ... time is one thing we've got lots of (I hope)!
