Woman plans, God laughs kinda day

Our less than one year old, top of the line Vent a Hood just quit working yesterday. And with all pre-surgery cooking I've been doing and continue to do, this Vent has been doing it's job till yesterday when the vent and lights just quit cold. So instead of studio time, I was running around checking power boxes, reading manuals, making phone calls, having meetings with the handyman and on and on. The bottom line is that the company has ok'd a local service company to come out and look at the unit. So far, no call from them. Hopefully we'll hear from them today.

Since yesterday was another heavy cooking day the house aroma was a mixture of the nutty fruity breakfast bread, followed by the aroma of stuffed jalapeno poppers with bacon. Good thing lunch was just tomato sandwiches. I think I'm going to have to buy another can of Febreeze soon!

At 6am this morning I was getting some of the ingredients for tonight's potato leek soup measured out. Guess the whole house is going to smell like tonight's soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I'm also going to be making a bolognese sauce for tomorrow and get the rest in the freezer. And of course we can't open the windows because of the smoke. from about 55,000 acres of burning timber here in Southern Oregon.

We can always count on life creating one interesting journey after another. I just wish they wouldn't periodically all come at the same time.
