I have no idea how it happened, but somehow my DVR managed to swallow ALL of my saved recordings! All those classic Chopped and Throwdown episodes, Alex Guarnaschelli's Next Iron Chef win and her first Iron Chef America battle -- all gone. AARRGGHH!! Luckily they recycle reruns, so I'm searching them out and starting to rebuild the collection.
I'm staying in and letting the painters finish up, if they haven't already, as well as letting the paint dry. Well, it could be worse. When they repaved the parking lot I had to stay away from home overnight. Gotta love home repairs -- NOT.
I'm STILL working on my afghan. The border panels are a pattern that's hard on my hands so I can only work on it a little at a time. Also sewing the bordered edges to the unbordered edges is a long, tedious process because the border contracts the sides quite a bit so I have to ease the unbordered edges to fit. With any luck, it might be finished by Christmas.
Time for more coffee and to do the breakfast dishes. Later.
