I don't even know what I was doing (probably messing around on the computer), but I didn't have a clue that N had taken everything out of the freezer, defrosted it, removed the door and was working on replacing the magnetic gasket (by the time I noticed). I'm happy to say that at least I WAS dressed and had already been out of the house twice. If I had still been in my PJs I would've felt like a total loser! And so the freezer looks amazing with room to spare and closes nice and tight like it used to in the old days. Too bad more appliances don't last as long these days (more than 30 years) as this one (knock on wood).
We can usually tell when either Jonathon will soon be arriving or leaving by the amount of cooking Fran engages in. As I prepped for bed last night, she had her cooking stool in position and asked me to retrieve her Kitchen Aide mixer along with a couple of pantry ingredients. She was getting ready to make pizza dough. Jonathon pulled in for a quick return visit (back from a friend's wedding in Florence) late this afternoon. He was just in time to help with the 4 pizzas; barbecue chicken with black beans, margherita, zucchini with riccotta and sausage with peppers. Delicious! Needless to say, we miss him when he's gone.
