Cold Plate, Car Wash and a Sale

by zesty on June 22, 2009 · 9 comments

What a weekend!  Lets summarize shall we.  First, I decided to put my Honda Accord up for sale this weekend in preparation to buy a truck to replace it.  I always wanted a truck so now might be the time.  I thought with the new house coming and all the building going on – it would nice to have the ability to haul something when you need to.


On Saturday evening I was treated to a homemade cold plate. It included ham, potato salad, garden tomatoes, cucumbers and homemade bread.  What a treat!  Thanks Nan.

In addition, we had a last minute boy/girl wedding shower on Sunday that we had to attend. It was a good time and the desserts were incredible.  I didn’t have my camera which is unfortunate.

So a new week has started and our goal is to make some positive traction on the house.  Survey of the property and soil test is complete.  I am just waiting for the elevation of the plans to be finalized, then move onto the building permit along with temporary electric service.  Once  that is complete, we will be ready to dig the hole a get this party started.

I hope you have a great Monday! I have a real treat for you tomorrow (and Wednesday) so stay tuned for some really creative baking.

Take care

cold plates are so nice sometimes.

good luck with selling the car! We have a Honda Accord that we love – the good thing is that they hold their value, so you should be able to get what it’s worth.

I hope everything goes well today!

There’s nothing quite as good as a cold plate in the summertime. That one looked particularly delicious!
