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

Bummer about the cod au gratin, though, which I've never had but just sounds 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.
