Matt and I stayed home this afternoon and worked on the house. Just basic cleaning and organizing. We installed our new wireless printer (so our old one can go to the bakery) and organized the basement.
And cleaned all the floors!
I had fun with my Steam Shark + Vac, which I am still LOVING! Partly because it’s a lightweight vacuum and I can do the whole house in a flash, and partly because there is no sloppy bucket.
I also removed my crappy manicure from last week. Not going back to that salon
And FINALLY cleaned my makeup brushes!
Karen came by to bring us some beans and say hello. She always is so chipper in her second week after chemo when she gest her energy back. She was glowing!
Complete with the Wisconsin cheese logo!
For the occasion Matt made homemade pepperjack buns – mmmmmmmmmmmm!
And we piled Southern-style toppings onto Virginia Bison
And kept warm
While we waited for the cheese to melt
BEHOLD – my FIRST EVER bacon cheeseburger!!
Can you believe that!? I don’t really think one should top meat on meat. But there is a first for everything. And this burger was pretty darn good!! I don’t think I’m going to make bacon a regular topping of mine (I could barely even taste the bacon + cheese under all of those jalapenos!), but the few hints I did get of the charred goodness were….good.
Toppings included local bacon, jalapenos, greens, and pepperjack, plus standard ketchup and mustard
And a big pile of kale chips for good measure
What might appear to be a huge mug of beer…
Was actually just a 2 ounce taste of IPA. Water just doesn’t go well with dinner!
A rockin’ tasty meal. There’s a video to go along with this burger that you’ll get to see in May!
After dinner we went on a nice neighborhood walk (it was nice out but it was cold!) and then settled into the couch to watch the Charlottesville feature film: The Parking Lot Movie.
An hour-long documentary about a group of guys who work/worked as a parking lot attendant on The Corner here in Cville.
The movie was good, but I don’t think you’d love it if you have never been to Charlottesville before! I kept hoping to see more sights of the city, but really you just hear a lot of talking about how much people suck! Glad I watched it though : )
