No Where, Nothing, Nice

Well we've been no where so I can't write about what we've been doing or what we saw. I have nothing going win the way of projects, so no pictures of quilts or glass. And the weather is very nice so nothing to write about there. 
Been spending the last couple of days watching soccer, NASCAR and Irma. At least Barcelona soccer team won big. 
I have been doing some stained glass. Just some small pieces to mount on my bathroom wall next to my first window. Still in the process of arranging them though. 
Also did some baking. Made Bill a marble cake using the red copper brownie pan. NEVER again. I've used it three times. The first time it worked like it is supposed to. Brownies came right out. Last time and this time the cake stuck to the center dividers and it is hard to clean off. I mean really, soak it in hot watery and then use a scrubby on it. Last time I sprayed the dividers and it stuck, so this time I didn't spray the dividers. Same mess. I remember the first time I used it I left the brownies in the oven as it cooled down. Maybe that is the secret - over cook batter. Might try it one more time and lengthen cooking time. [I also made 6 cupcakes so as not to over fill the pan.]
 Then for dinner tonight I made our last box meal. Baked chicken breasts topped with grated zucchini and Parmesan cheese. Mashed potatoes and green beans. Turned out very good.  Something I would not have made otherwise. 
The weather today was wonderful. Yesterday day from noon on was nice too - no AC yesterday. For the next week it should be dry and below 100. Goody. Maybe this week we'll go out looking for the murals downtown.

  2. I am still enjoying your musings. I miss seeing Bill talk to people...learning stuff...making good talk...of course pics of him ... From behind...hands behind his back! Pans are no good in my opinion. Beautiful stained glass. You are very talented.

  3. I see it is cooling off in LV, but I just wanted you to know that it was a high of 64 today at Tillicum Campground along the Oregon Coast. I am definitely coming to this area next summer to avoid the heat.
