Monday

I put a roast into my cast iron dutch oven for dinner tonight and it is cooking on top of the stove as I type this. I added a onion and some potatoes to it along with two cups of water with two beef bouillon cubes to it. I'll make some gravy, peas and some biscuits and that will be dinner.

I've been putting things back together in the living room. Linda helped me put my computer back together last night and she put up everything up differently then how I had it. I like the way she did it all. The tower is beside the monitor instead of in the tower cubby hole that is at the bottom of the desk (she tried laying the tower on its side and putting the monitor on top of it (my tower is one of those skinny ones and flat screen monitors fits nicely on it), but my monitor which is a flat screen was to tall and didn't fit. It will make cleaning the dust off the back of the tower a lot easier then when it was on the bottom. She also put my printer in the printer cubby hole on the desk and she put my speakers on the top shelve along with my wireless router and my DSL modem thingie. I'll get a pic of it later and post it.

Maybe I should dust the back of my monitor:)This is what I am going to do when Justin comes home, you shoukd maybe try it. There are three men in your house it might work. I am going to empty all the dresser contents on the floor and pretend to attempt to do it myself and Im hoping Justin will say
" move, i will do it", you should try that with your stuff. Let me know if it works. :))

You mean we are supposed to dust our computers? Jeeze, why doesn't anyone ever tell me this stuff. ;) Can you tell that dusting is not very high on my priority list?

Why is it that peas go so well with pot roast and mashed potatoes? I also serve peas when I make meatloaf and potatoes, or salmon patties and potatoes. Yummy.
How did your roast come out?

Barbara, my roast was yummy. As long as I can remember I just about always serve peas with roast, my Mama used to and I followed. When I make meatloaf I always serve corn with it. When I make Texas Hash I always serve green beans with it.
