こんばんは! Hello!

Today was a good day – there was a mix of household tasks completed, movie watched, and yummy food eaten. A great combination!

In the kitchen, I repaired a leaky water line that goes to our refrigerator. Our fridge is about 10 years old now, and the plastic tubes that bring water to the filter are getting less pliable, and one of them developed a crack. It has happened once before, and the quick fix is to remove the small part of the tube that has the crack, then connect the two ends together. Happily, couplings are available at the hardware store for about $4, and it is a quick fix. But really, the whole tube should be replaced since I can see more leaks springing up soon. But I’ll spend the $4 for the quick fix for now.

The second task I did today was to put a metal cover on the hole in our counter-top. When we replaced our kitchen faucet, we were left with two extra holes. In one we put a dish soap dispenser, but the other one was just empty. So I ordered a metal cover for it. Can you believe that such a simple non-functional piece of metal cost $10? Craziness. Anyways, that went in without problem and now the sink is complete. Yay.

I mentioned that we watched a movie. It was Cloverfield. I thought it was okay, but I don’t like movies where the ending is left unresolved. And this movie’s ending was left in the air. But the special effects were cool! 😛

Lastly, the good food eaten… One of our friends came over to kick back and watch the movie and that always means yummy food! In the picture above, Koa is working on peeling a shrimp, which was cooked in garlic and olive oil. Those shrimp were yummy!!! And to accompany the food, plenty of beer, wine, and champagne were consumed. And because of that, I am sleepy!

So…. おやすみなさい! I hope you had a nice weekend… let’s have a great Monday!
