Stir Fried Chicken with Mushrooms and Snow Peas

Today we had sunshine, rain, sleet, hail and high winds…. all repeated several times.

I know spring is coming.  The calendar assures me it will be here soon.

And I found snow peas.

Mon mari has been trimming.

With the cold and nasty weather outside, he is more than happy to be fussing with the trim inside.

He’s doing the bits around the floor.

He also put an electrical outlet in the floor.  One doesn’t put outlets in stone walls.

While putting the outlet in he realized he needed to do a bit more work on the wiring.

There he is, with his head up the wall…. 

Apparently, wiring isn’t always in the most convenient place.

He tells me that he lost 2 screwdrivers and a pliers, dropped down forever between the walls.

I did hear a bit of colorful language emanating from the closet.

He heard a bit of colorful language emanating from my desk the few times the power cut-out without warning. 

He tells me that he finally tied his tools on an idiot string around his neck to keep from losing any more.

No comment.
