A Failed Dinner & A Finished Deck

I never got around to blogging yesterday. Monday evening I’d planned to cook, snap some pictures along the way, and blog about that. Well…after flinging potatoes all over the kitchen in an attempt to mash them, then fighting with a gravy that refused to thicken I said to heck with it and went for this instead:

There’s not a lot to tell you about this one. It’s a pomegranate margarita, made from a pre-made mix. I added tequila and a squeeze of a fresh lime. Regardless, it was delicious & made my failed dinner attempt tolerable.

By the way, did you notice how cool my margarita glass is? My aunt gave ’em to me. She originally bought them for herself, soon discovered she doesn’t drink enough margaritas to justify the space they took up in her tiny kitchen, and passed them along to me. They’re fun!

This week hasn’t been a complete waste though. While I was away from blogging yesterday I was completing this project:

I can cross something off my summer to-do list!! The deck is refinished and looks marvelous!!

Want a look from another angle? Here it is:

A little pressure washing on Saturday, then a full day of staining and here we are. It’s a large deck, and the railing leaves a lot to be desired as far as refinishing goes but it’s SOOOOOO nice to have this project done!!

Still need to haul the furniture back out of the garage and on to the deck, but I finished this project just in time to leave for the weekend so….guess I’ll wait until I get back home.

How are your summer projects coming along?
