Hey TKW Family, happy Sunday! How was your week? Mine was pretty good though super busy. I only got to post 2 posts last week (sorry) due to my being so busy. It’s funny as I have at least 200 recipes with photos that I need to post but it’s getting the point where I could really, REALLY use an assistant. If you have college kids (or you are one) and are looking to get into social media let me know as I can work with their school to help with an internship.
Besides being super busy at work I’ve been having some issues with my photo shoots. The past 4 shoots the pictures have come out grainy. Now I shoot only in manual mode and while I’m nowhere near a professional photographer I still have to ‘think’ when it comes to ISO, Shutter speed, Aperture and the rest. It’s like I have this learning block that I just can’t get the hang of it. However that’s one good thing about my being an engineer – I’m persistent. I HAVE to master a task – pick it apart and understand the mechanics and foundations. Once I master that then I desperately NEED to start delving into creating those 30 second-a minute food videos. Again, this is where an assistant would be of HUGE value here.
Last week Mr. Fantabulous got the downstairs bathroom tile put down. Tomorrow he’ll grout it and then we can finally start on the hardwood floors. THAT should be a treat (as she rolls her eyes). He swears it’s a lot easier than putting down tile but I don’t know. This damn kitchen floor tile almost caused us to get a divorce. Well not really but OMG did we fight. It got so bad we didn’t speak for 4 days. I mean AT ALL. And I didn’t cook once. I know… it was bad. But he’s my best friend and I can’t stay mad at him for long.

So the first week of the new year is behind us… now what? How are you doing with your resolutions and lifestyle changes? Now more important, how was your first week back to work after the holidays? And even more important than that, how was wearing real clothes? Yeah sucks huh? Wait what? You don’t live in your jammies and yoga pants when you’re not at work? Oh um, never mind that last question then. LOL Mine wasn’t bad as it was a short week and I worked from home one of those days so it broke it up for me. However I think karma felt the need to get one last dig into me as Tuesday on my way home one of the main roads/tunnels were closed due to an accident. For most that’s not a big deal but for me it’s huge – turned my commute into over 2.5 hours. Yeah, not cool. But it happens.
Last week we didn’t get much done around the house as Mr. Fantabulous’ back was still hurting him really bad. I begged him for 4 days to go to the chiropractor but the man is BEYOND stubborn – we’re talking worse than me at times. So he kind of laid in the lazy boy with the heating pad. In a way it was good for him as he finally took a break, albeit sore back or not. However this week is a new story. We need to lay the tile in the downstairs bathroom and last night he came into the bedroom telling me he needs to replace the bearings and seals in the pool pump today. I swear if it’s not one thing it’s another at this damn house.
I started watching this show “Unplugged Nation” where it’s all about living off the grid. Hmmm – I could see the positives with it (no pool pumps, phones or the like) but yeah… bears, cougars and having no internet I think I’ll pass. I couldn’t do it. Could you?
I have a busy week coming up – a few new client recipes, house stuff annnnnnnd it’s the first full week of work. Plus my mind has been racing big time with new ideas for recipes and plus the website re-design. It’s coming along very nicely – just a few tweaks left to make and then I can push the changes to my live site. I’m introducing a recipe index, better categorization, better mobile responsiveness and a more modern, clean design.
So if you guys follow me on Instagram you would have seen the new recipe I’m working on – Chicken Bacon Ranch Meatballs but I can assure you, there aren’t your typical ones. Oh no, these are loaded from the inside out! Stay tuned for the recipe!
