Last night, I tried my hand at chowda. I've never made chowder before and made a nice, low fat one using cod, leeks, potato, wild fish stock, and skim milk. David kept declaring his love for the chowder, something that made me extremely happy as he had spent almost the entire day cursing at the faucet he was installing. He deserved a nice warm meal for all of his efforts. We now have running water in the downstairs bathroom!
I, on the other hand, spent my day declaring my love for the new washer and dryer. It's so low on lint, takes very little detergent, the dryer is done way before the washer, and our clothes smell better. David said that it was like our old machine wasn't really cleaning anything. When I wasn't doing laundry, I was running various household errands including my umpteenth time to Lowe's in the course of three days.
We finished up our weekend by building a fire, sitting down with our espresso and the New York Times, and just being.
