Sunday was really a bad luck day.
I didn't have anything to do with RVs at all.
Craig and I were going to work on staining some new doors for the hall outside the middle bathroom, so I went out to make room in the garage by pulling out his prius and my van.
I pulled out the prius onto the driveway just outside the door.
Then I got into my big old van, thinking about something not related to driving and backed it out.
Usually when I back out I swing to the left to turn it around.
Not thinking I automatically turned, and creamed the front fender of the prius!
I couldn't have been moving at more than 5 mph. but I did $700 worth of damage. I went for an estimate yesterday at my favorite body shop. They actually gave me a discount because I've been there several times in the last 20 years.
I know it could happen to anyone. But I really felt bad.
We worked on staining one of the doors (3 more to do) and decided to have an early dinner.
I'm really a good cook, and can pull a nice meal together out of an odd set of ingredients. Sunday I decided to use some scallops I had in the freezer, plus a couple of things from the fridge. My idea was a disaster. The sauce I put together would have been ineatable had I served it.
Instead I decided to make some quick pasta and toss it with broccoli and cheese, and serve that as a side to the scallops which were already cooking.
I had a nice chunk of parmesan that was almost to the end and had a thick rind. I didn't have time to grate it by hand so I decided to toss it in the blender. Before I could do that I need to cut the rind off.
I have (had) a very special knife. It is (was) a black Kyocera ceramic. A beautiful tool. It cut like a razor, and I used it for everything.
One thing you must not do is twist it. Apparently I did. I started cutting into the cheese and it snapped!
All I can say is bad luck is said to come in threes, and I sure had my three in one day.
