It’s simple, you can put that together

I have been out of commission for a week since I fell last Friday.  I have been feeling pretty good so I put on my sales hat and convinced the guilty police to let me out for Spinning class this morning.  When that alarm went off at 4:45 it was tough.  It does not take long to get out of the routine.

I laid out all my workout clothes last night and it felt so good to layer them all on this morning.  I went to class and did OK. In the saddle and position 3 were OK, the standing in position 2, not so much.  I took the advice of my friends and husband and bailed on Zumba tonight. Maybe I can do it on Sunday.

Now comes the hairy part.  Time to re-enact the scene from last week.  I went home, took a shower and headed to Perecca’s.  Don’t laugh but I did not wear the shoes that I fell in.  I felt like my friend Patty’s grandmother.  She told me about her superstitious grandmother who fell in her driveway and threw away her shoes!

I made it through the trip to Perecca’s, then to Cappiello’s.  Left with all my parts intact, so to speak.

The day progresses uneventfully and around 4:00 I was planning dinner for tonight. We have a little courtyard with a bistro set in the front of the house.  I thought it would be nice to put a chiminea out there to accent the table and candles and of course wine.

Off I go to Lowe’s to pick it up.  The guy brings it out to the register and then to my car.  It looks heavy and in need of assembly. Hmmm, “Can I put that together?” 

“Sure, the pieces fit on top of each other, easy. It’s simple, you can put that together”.  That should have been my first clue.

I worked for over an hour and a half and finally it is together.  Chip tightened the remaining bolts and carried it from the garage to it’s resting place. The courtyard looks great and we are creating a pizza on for the grill:  pesto, shrimp, prosciutto and grilled eggplant.  Yummy.

Sitting by that fire tonight will feel good. I’ll ice that poor old knee, enjoy some Prosecco and watch the stars come out.  Cheers!

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
