This is the second day in a row for gray, cloudy, rainy weather here, and it makes it so hard to get anything accomplished! Weather like this makes me want to lay on the couch watching movies and eating bonbons all day. (P.S., the trailer for The Hobbit came out today! I don't know how Clint and I are going to wait another whole year for the movie's actual release!) To try to avoid doing that, I instead whipped up this Wild Rice Salad with Oranges and Roasted Beets this morning and tucked it away in the fridge for lunch.
In the continuing saga of the Ross household appliance meltdown, the part we needed for the washer arrived, so Clint dutifully went to replace the broken part this morning, only to find that the brilliant company sent us the wrong part! So now my poor husband is stuck out in the cold garage trying to rewire the wrong part to fit our washer. Something that should have taken 20 minutes to fix is now extending to an unforeseeable amount of time, and all the while our laundry pile continues its silent invasion of the house . . .
