little peas and other things

This week has found me swimming in a sea of uncertainty.  There are big changes happening both at home and with work and I am drained.  I want to muster up the energy to finish the last of the painting so that I can reveal* my newish kitchen but I am still not quite there.  It is all I can do keep up with the kitchen mess and hang clothes on the line - and to wonder why oh why can't hanging the toilet paper holder become a priority.

I need a weekend free from almost everything so that I can power through these last bits.  I am hopeful that will happen in a few days.  I only need to look back at the last of my pictures to see where the extra time has been spent...

Fresh peas worth every bit of effort.  The fact that they were enjoyed by the entire family after I sauteed them in a little olive oil and finely chopped onion and tossed them in some quinoa was an added bonus and made the so far summer diet of ice cream and hamburgers a little more bearable.  

*word that makes me realize I am a blogger
