ON THE BACK BURNER

Aug.24

When you are tired, really tired, you make mistakes.Fortunately, I have not had to sign any documents or make any life decisions. I had been scrapping the back of my son and DiL’s house, along with my DiL and her brother. I did the low part, my DiL got on a ladder and did the up work. The brother was the middle man.Dixie managed to be where ever was the most scraped paint chips.We kept moving her because we are sure that the paint from a hundred year old house, is lead based. We wore N95 masks and I had my glasses on. After we finished for the day, I was doing the last step in preparing my cold brew coffee. I was up to the last step where I strained it and put the coffee into a large Mason jar. I got out the strainer, the cloth that I use inside of the strainer to filter it even more and then , because I was really ,really tired, I poured the finished coffee into the strainer. Whoops. I forgot to put the strainer into a bowl. The newly made ,cold brewed coffee went down the sink. Moral of this tale is just take two Aleve , a shower and go to bed. I have enough coffee from the last batch for a cup in the morning.
