Day one of the construction went OK. It did throw a wrench in my plans when I realized the water was going to be shut off all day. But I muddled through.
In the afternoon my friend was nice enough to invite us over to hang out so we could get a break from the noise.

This morning I woke up at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep (I am sure I am a bit anxious about how today will work out) - so I got up and did some more cleaning.
Unfortunately, when I went to take photos of my breakfast I discovered that they had re-installed the patio blinds all wonky and they aren't working anymore, le sigh.
But that didn't stop me from enjoying my breakfast - I just moved everything out to the patio to take pictures.

The bruschetta was fast and easy. I cut a baguette in half lengthwise and lightly brushed it with olive oil. Then both halves went into a skillet over medium heat.
While the bread browned, I chopped up one yellow tomato and one red and tossed them in a bowl along with 2 teaspoons of olive oil, a dash of salt, a dash of black pepper and thinly sliced basil.
When the bread was nice and crisp, I plated it and let it cool for a bit before I rubbed it with a clove of garlic. Then a generous heaping of the tomato mixture went on top.
This is wonderfully messy to eat and the sweetness of the tomatoes along with the fresh bite of the basil? Heaven :-)
Wish me a day of smooth sailing or at least smooth construction...
