What a mess!

As of right now, our computer is up and running but who knows how long that will last. The other night I made cod au gratin, which is one of our favorites, and while it was baking in the oven, I heard a mini explosion. When I looked in the oven, the cod au gratin was everywhere and the dish was broken into a thousand pieces! It was such a mess and I was so disappointed as I was looking forward to cod au gratin all day. I don't know what happened to the dish but the worst part was having to find something else for supper.
We just finished putting in all of our windows. Below is a picture of the living room just after Brian had taken the window out. What a lovely view and a nice cool breeze!
This is a picture of our house before our new windows and below that is a picture of our house now. We still need new siding. I just have to decide on what colour. That will be a project for next year.

I planted this Nikko Blue hydrangea 4 years ago and this was the first year that it bloomed. The blooms are so big, I just love them. It's also nice that it blooms in late summer when alot of the other prennials are finished blooming.

Later on today we plan to go blueberry picking. I was up a few night ago and picked a bowl full and today I plan on making some blueberry muffins and maybe some blueberry squares too. I love to bake, but I also love to eat what I bake. That is a very dangerous combination!

My MIL said a pyrex bowl of hers 'exploded' when she was taking it out of the oven. Guess it's happened to others http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2006/03/pyrex_panic.html

Bummer about the cod au gratin, though, which I've never had but just sounds yummy...so do the blueberries. yumm.... ~emilie

I had a pan like that explode as well, I had just taken it out of the oven and was standing next to it. What a scare I got.
Your house looks great, we have to same windows with the white bar thingys in them. I love them.
