The Double Jeopardy category is WEATHER and the answer is, HOT HOT HOT. With a side of humid, with a chance of runny eyeliner later on this evening. (Just kidding, Meg didn’t even bother with makeup today, that’s what sunglasses are for).
Jesus H. weatherpeople, if you want to forecast showers, then follow up on them! Meg is trying to keep her Giverny like gardens looking like a Monet painting:
I swear they are calling out for a vodka on the rocks.
Tonight she’s making this salad:
Watermelon Mint Feta Salad
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup lime juice (4-6 limes, depending on how big and juicy the limes are)
A quarter of a medium sized watermelon, rind removed, black seeds removed (if there are any), chopped into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
She’ll serve some fresh Block Island swordfish and maybe some fresh corn to go along with it. Any cool weather salads you’d like to share?
Meg is redoing her office and removing all the clunky old furniture so it looks sleek and roomy. Remember those old computer desks that held gigantic towers and monitors?
Yeah, they’ve become pretty outdated. Instead, she ordered this on-line at the Home Decorators Site:
She got the matching file cabinet as well, which also looks like a console table. She is adding this piece of modern art to
the office for some panache:
She found this Joan Miro lithograph on sale and thought the office could use a modern edge, she thinks the furniture will pick up the green. The thing Meg likes about this is that you could put this stuff in a spare bedroom and it would totally blend in. She over having a room that looks like a development lab at an engineering company.
Meg is making hotel reservations for another family wedding, and so far it’s stretching into month two of where people want to stay. Meg has called a dingbat at a Holiday Inn Express two days in a row, and somehow this person cannot manage to reserve a room. Does anyone think Meg should have her husband work with his family? She thinks so.
