What's happened to the cabinet?

Wondering how the progress is coming along? Well, I confess, I'm a pussy when it comes to the heat and just as I was getting ready to work on the cabinet the heatwave hit Portland. Since many Portlanders don't have a/c we suffer through, complaining a lot. Three days in a row the thermostat inside our house registered over 90. So, I'm here, I just haven't been productive or moving much because I'm sick of sweating. Seriously, I don't even want to turn on the studio lights because I know they'll heat up the space. Don't you feel sorry for me? This week looks a lot more promising, forcasting 80s and possibly some rain on the way.

To top things off this week, I ended up in the ER on Thursday after the avocado pit won over the knife - too bad my thumb got in the way. No tendons harmed, and I talked them out of stitches - so I now have steristrips healing the deep cut.

I know, I know... you're going to tell me the best way to remove the pit from an avocado. I've done it the way chefs do it for years... this time it was just too slippery for my own good.

oh no, i'm sorry about your hand! i've had some close calls myself... will be more cautious now.
totally understand about the heat; it makes me feel SO lethargic. and i can't stand sweating when i'm trying to sleep. ick. fortunately we rarely have that problem over here in ireland.

I feel for you. You're having a michigan summer and we are having your summer. I lived without a/c for yrs and one afternoon my taper candles melted- they were bent over like a wilted flower- now that was hot! I have to admit I love the heat but not the humidity.
Sorry about your thumb. I do things like that quite often. When I come out your way I'll bring your coolness back and take the heat with me-deal?

Oh no! Sorry to hear about your thumb.

It's raining here in Seattle. Hope it's cool there, too.

Thanks for the compliment.

Yeah, what did happen to that cabinet- just kidding! I so enjoyed our visit last week. I'll try to email you later and let you know how the rest of the trip went and then I want to hear about your life.

Those darn avocado pits. But hey, at least we know who (what) to blame for problems on the cabinet.
