Could she be any cuter?
I think not.
Her Peepers (me) is so proud.
Okay, so I’m making the 12-Layer Jello Salad today. First layer is in the fridge.
Yesterday did not go as planned and I wasn’t home all day. I did put a pork roast in the crock pot at about noon. HERE is the recipe I used. The shredded pork is to die for, however, because I left it cooking too long (about 7.5 hours on low), the sauce scorched a little and it ruined the taste of the sauce. That is going in the garbage and a bottle of BBQ sauce from the pantry is being used. Darn it. But I will definitely use this recipe again when I can be home to monitor what’s happening in the crock and prevent it from burning. In my opinion, it needs a little water added to the recipe so it’s not so thick. Anyway, the pork is great and will provide several lunches and dinners for The Captain and me over the holiday weekend.
I don’t know how well you can see these beads I hung in the doorway to our bedroom, but I think I like them. I used to have a drape hanging from a decorative rod and swooped to one side. I got sick of that (and it never did look exactly like it was supposed to anyway), and I decided to try some beads. They look nice and neat…and a little bohemian but not too much.
Our bedroom door leads right out into the living room so I like some kind of privacy there instead of it being wide open all the time. You can still shut the door since they are hung on the outside of the doorway.
I need to paint the door frame and door a darker color still. The white is really too much of a contrast with the woodiness of the floors and beads. Agreed? I’ll tackle that after the first of the year if I decide to keep them. I wish I could get a better picture of how they look, but I tried and failed. That last picture is really crappy. And the wall colors in my bedroom and living room are not showing up accurately either in these photos. Hmpf.
And what is up with those light switches? They are so tacky-looking. (See the first photo.) Why have I never noticed them before until I saw that picture? I need to go to Lowe’s and find some nice switch plates.
I’m off to add another layer of color to my Jello. Why do I have a feeling mine is not going to look as good as those photos from yesterday? I’m making mine in a Bundt pan like the first photo in yesterday’s entry.
