Wildfire Sets Home Improvement Back

This is my dining room in preparation for the carpet installation. It's a pretty good idea of what the rest of the house feels like. So, all ready, right? Yup, all ready! Even the weather's been cooperating: nice and dry, a little hot, windy but that's fine. It should sweep the new carpet smell right out of the house! Everything's ready. So let's relax. Turn on the TV. Smell the fresh... smoke? Huh? What's that on the news? My city is burning? Hmm. Better answer the phone.
"Hello, this is Cole's Carpets calling. We noticed you were in a certain area of San Diego. Are you sure you want your carpets installed tomorrow?"

Gee, I guess there are more important things than home improvement... ya think?

What's that? This is SUPPOSED to be a creativity blog, you say? Okay, here's some gorgeous fat quarters I picked up in Columbus.

Tonight's dinner was a masterpiece:
  • Butternut Squash Soup with Apple Confit and Homemade Creme Fraiche
  • Beef Stroganoff with Noodles
  • Tomato Tart from scratch
  • Chocolate Chip Blondies with Vanilla Ice Cream or Creme Fraiche
I cooked all day... and I did make the tart dough in my studio, so it still counts as going to my studio and making stuff!
