Well, Dandylion, our youngest graduated from high school in May, turned 18 in June and left for college in August. He's in a pre-nursing program as well as the Marching Band. So far he is enjoying himself. But he'd better get a job quick, and apply for some more scholarships or he'll be able to enjoy only one semester of this adventure.
I recently had a delicious vegetarian meal: fresh beets and beet greens, brown rice and Ratatouille, or as we called it Eggplant Stew. We never knew we were eating a French dish, but come to find out that's (about) what it is. I don't use any zucchini in it because I don't like the bitter taste of zucchini. This batch has eggplant (or aubergine), fresh and canned tomatoes, celery, onion, and bell peppers, I think I used red, orange and yellow. It tasted so, so good to me.
Next up for redecorating is the bedroom that Dandylion vacated.
|View from hallway door into the room|
|Windows to the southeast|
|Double closets (notice the not matching doorknobs)|
|Inside wall - with leftover desk, the one I got at Salvation Army for $1.95|
|Detail of old, ugly heater vent cover and dirt, also the weird electrical outlet with (missing) night light|
|Gorgeous hardwood floors|
|And the only plain wall in the room.|
