    Ascherer -- poor kitty! He must have been traumatized by all the commotion. The water heater has been on and off all day. I'm hoping to catch it while it's on so I can get cleaned up. The landlord was back today trying to figure out the problem, so The Princess was in high alert guard dog mode and has been barking non-stop for the last hour and a half. The good news is we are going to get a new water heater! At last!

    Dinner tonight with dear friends. Baked ziti will be making an appearance. :)

    Since DH (and paid friends) spent the afternoon cleaning gutters and blowing leaves, I made spaghetti for dinner before he left for work. He wasn't too stupid late getting home. Baking got pushed to today. I'll do the baking while the boys (DH and a friend) finishes working on the gutters and leaves in the back yard. I guess tonight is leftover spaghetti or whatever you can find in the fridge. My poor timid kitty thought the 3 guys with leaf blowers were just chasing him round the yard. He was happier when I finally got him inside but he was still spooked.

    jdouglas - I'm glad you got some hot water. I do hope it holds. We are about to get cold.

    Oh my! I just read your post Jdouglas. So glad the water got fixed but what a scare.

    Tonight it was gourmet buffet. I had a heaping bowl of vegetable soup with pasta shells.

    Woohoo! The landlord got the water fixed and they didn't use duct tape this time, so it might actually hold.

    I'm thinking breaded chicken cutlets for dinner, maybe rice, and mixed leftover veg (DW will be thrilled).

    Not sure what we're doing either. The water heater blew this morning, so we might be spending the night in a hotel with The Princess. God help us. LOL

    ascherer - happy Saturday to you as well!

    Not sure about dinner tonight. Still thinking about it.

    Tonight is "you are on your own" night. DH has to work tonight starting at 6 and ending whenever he gets home which might be as late as 2 am. So, I am planning on baking some cookies and other snacks to take for Thanksgiving or pop in the freezer for care packages. We are getting close enough that I can almost smell that roasted bird. Happy Saturday everyone.
