Rainy Saturday

there is something so wonderful about a rainy saturday. E and i were supposed to take dignan and roxy to the country club of york for their dog swim today but it was rained out. we were all sad about this and very disappointed we didn't get to see, EA, RJ, and K but there is nothing like a good nap on a rainy saturday. it felt so good. plus, when i woke up it was a little chilly so i had a nice cup of chai tea. yum.

E and i spent most of the afternoon drying out our basement after a minor flood down there. a combination of tons of rain and an unknowingly unplugged sump pump is a recipe for disaster. anyway, lots of moving around and wet/dry vacuuming later, we are on our way to a once again dry basement. hopefully a couple of days of running the dehumidifier will do the rest of the work. we did lose our rug that was down there though so we have to look at the not so nice basement floor. anyone have any good/cheap ideas for how to hide our ugly floor???

anyway, after all that i wanted to do something easy for dinner so i threw together a beef stir fry. just some sirloin steak, leftover brown rice, and whatever veggies i had in the drawer and voila!
