Trip to IKEA

Marilyn and I took a trip to IKEA today. I wanted to pick up more wire baskets and some other items...

The wire baskets are really cheap. I think they're actually designed to be used with furniture that has basket shelves that roll in and out. No matter! They work for loads of other things, as well...

I also wanted a stainless pot for making browned butter (so much easier if you can see what you're doing while cooking it). That was pretty inexpensive, and Marilyn found it for me (of course).

As a matter of fact, I'm terrible at navigating around IKEA! Marilyn's the one who really gets the place and can find her way around so well...

In other news, the U.S. Open started today. So naturally we had tennis on quite a bit at our house...

Sister Sue was feeling lousy -- and very dizzy today. I'm sure she'll be glad to get her surgery done this week.

Well, Marilyn and I are thinking of watching a movie On Demand, so I'll cut this short. We're truly in vaca mode! (smile)
