Basketball Shrine

I bought the orange mini carnations on March 1st from the grocery store. The photo was taken on March 3rd. The vase still sits on the counter. Although, the flowers are faded now. The wine  is was Oswegatchie Orange. The wine was used to celebrate the team making it to the Sweet 16.
The display actually turned into an SU Basketball Shrine. : )
Following the team is a wonderful winter pastime I'm sorry to see our season end.

For Christmas I received a terrarium, it was purchased from Pottery Barn. I've never had good luck with terrarium's. "Good luck" as in keeping the plants alive. It sat for two months until one day while watching a Candice Olson episode on HGTV and saw where she put a bird into the exact terrarium.
I changed her idea up a bit by adding an old book and a nest.
The nest was given to me by the mother of one of my friends. The nest is made with the softest material a bird could find. The nest even has hair in it. If any nest belongs under glass this is the one.

Bathroom Remodel

The sinks came with a pattern that Mick used to cut into the beautiful African Mahogany counter top.
The tricky part was figuring the placement of each sink. I had no trouble where I wanted them from the side walls. The hard part was determining how far away from the back wall.
I have the philosophy measure four, five or six times then cut.
I actually left the house and ran an errand when Mick cut into the counter top, just in case something didn't go well.  : )
By the time I arrived home each sink had been set into their new home.
Let the plumbing begin!

Bathroom Remodel

Our two new sinks arrived and it wasn't easy. An online order from Lowe's, scheduled to take five days, took four weeks. I finally had to spend 45 minutes on the phone being transferred, transferred and transferred to figure out why they hadn't arrived. 
How can two sinks make such a mess?
I really like the sinks. They are porcelain and the best part seven inches deep.
They are all that I hoped they would be and only $213 each.

First Day Spring

Yesterday, the last day of winter, at our house it was 75 degrees at 4:00pm.  Now for my relatives that live in Georgia, South Carolina or Texas that is no big deal. But at my house!!
We broke the previous record from 1983 of 65 degrees.
Bring on spring.

Let's Go Orange

The SU basketball team plays it's first NCAA tournament game today at 3:15. Thankfully, I get out of work at 3:00 so I won't miss much of the game. The "BAD" spot on the organe represents Fab Melo. Darn him and darn his tutor's/school handler's. Gosh even Geneseo had "jock jail" to keep student athletes up with school work, assuming that the real reason for his suspension is related to academics.  
We I have an on-going tradition at my office that I wear orange when a SU basketball or SU football team plays.  
 I think it brings the team good luck. : )
Their second game is on Saturday and I can wear my SU sweatshirt. Although, it brought terrible luck for the Big East tournament. Maybe me wearing orange has nothing to do with how the teams play?

It's National Potato Chip Day!

I haven't eaten any potato chips in a long time but I do love them. In fact, I could sit down and eat an entire bag of the kettle-cooked chips in one sitting.
I've heard from several of my loyal blog readers that you are sick of my heart shaped chip. So sorry, from your very bad blog author.
