The Grill Master

 It was a beautiful day on Sunday, here in Wisconsin.  So beautiful that Mr. P decided to pull out the grill and fix a GREAT lunch.....Here he is making his grilled potatoes and onion packets....


 
 He also loaded up the grill with steak, chicken and asparagus!!!  YUM!!

Saturday was very rainy here.  Electricians were here most of the morning finishing up some work that they didn't finish on Friday.  Here is an updated picture of the master bathroom remodel.  This week the shower was roughed in, plumbing added to the shower and the toilet was moved across the room.  The bathroom door was relocated because a wall was blown out to make the bathroom larger!!  It used to be 33 steps from my bed to the toilet....now it will be closer...hehehe!!  The Electricians wired the outlets and installed the 7 light switches....WOW!!
Here are a few pics of the room just before the outlets were installed......


 I can't wait to see the finished product!!!!!!

My son, the hoarder




John walked by Ben's car the other night and took a peek in...... He did not like what he saw.....
Here is a shot of the front seats......


and the back seat.......oh, nice Mc Donald's bag....




and yet another view of the back seat.....




BUT....on his own, he realized that nearly all of his clothes were in his car-- dirty.... so, out he came with his hamper and his headphones......



and soon my friends, the hamper was full.....and in the laundry room it still sits.....

Tennis Anyone??




On Saturday, Ben's high school Varsity tennis team traveled to Waukesha, Wisconsin for a tennis tournament.  There were many schools there to compete.... WE watched and we cheered...quietly.
Between matches, we watched Ben eat an entire bag of teriyaki beef jerky...
Later, we also watched him serve....

and we saw him play hard!!!
He and his doubles partner won 1 of there 3 matches....which made the coach happy, that was his goal.   Anyway, it was a great, sunny day to play and watch tennis!!

Brewers Game


We had an opportunity last night to go to a Brewers game and sit in the We Energies suite to watch the game. It was amazing! It was fun to walk out of the crowded hallways and into the luxury box area, where the hallways were mostly clear. We then came to our suite....
There was a lot of good food available....
plenty of room to roam around.....
the seats were awesome!! Right on the 3rd base side closer to home plate.... We had quite a bit of action....2 foul balls hit inside our box....darn, forgot my glove.....

And there was our own bathroom in the suite, just a few steps from where we were sitting- it was very spacious and fancy....

Great seats to see the Brewers WIN!!

Master Bathroom Remodel

Day 1 .....Demolition Day. The builder worked feverishly yesterday to get rid of nearly any evidence of my master bathroom. He had a helper that chipped the tile away around the jacuzzi tub and helped him get rid of the cabinets. When they left yesterday, they assured me that the toilet was still functioning if I wanted to use it one more night........gee, thanks....
