Status Quo

So it's yet another gorgeous day dawning in Northern California. I have neither much news nor thoughts to post. I've been admiring a huge bouquet of crimson Mr. Lincoln's in Grandma Julia's pink and white hobnail glass vase all weekend. I'm getting ready to make muffins with the blackberries I picked while camping in Iron Canyon a couple of years ago. I hope this assuages my recent overwhelming desire to bake a cake. I've leafed through the schedule of our local cultural center's offerings for fall and spring shows and have marked a comedy competition and appearances by Elvis Costello, Anthony Bourdain, Billy Collins, and Kay Ryan as events I should make an effort to attend. It's pleasant having so many things to look forward to.

M and I are starting the kitchen upgrade project in earnest. Our handyman neighbor came over yesterday and took one of our cabinet doors--he'll be make a few inserts around the new built-in dishwasher and range and needs to match our cabinet stain. I went appliance shopping and M went up to the flooring remnants store yesterday. While petting stoves in Sears, I made an appointment for an estimate for new countertops for this Friday. We'll probably indulge in a little more appliance porn today and get some paint samples to try swatches on the walls. M has convinced me that this is the best time to paint the living room and kitchen, and I know he's right, but it's more home upheaval than I had been preparing myself for. Today will be the day that I try to add up all of the numbers. That, I'm dreading.

We might also see Star Trek today.

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!
