Cooking on all four burners........

Cooking on all four burners.......and a whole lot more......as of just last week. I bought all of the appliances for the house, way back in October, at Metro Builders Supply in Springfield, and
must say that it was a good experience from beginning to end. No heavy-handed, slick-talking, promise-you-everything sales people.......just the facts, some very smart and very personable professionals, a bit of education about why some products are better or more efficient than others, staying within the budget, saving money wherever possible, free delivery to the house (17 miles away), and for a reasonable cost: INSTALLATION.

I am extremely close.......extremely close......to living the dream. And I'm talking about a cold water dispenser and the possibility of crushed ice here. Not to mention a dishwasher for the first time in thirteen years. And, finally, the ability to fix pancakes on the griddle or fry cheese burgers without the smoke alarm going off......thanks to a vent hood. CRUSHED ICE. What next?

And how about the floors? Have you seen the floors since Jason put those coats of sealer on them? Oh, yeah. Now I remember talking about "celebrating" the character of the various imperfections......or some such thing. Well, they are just great. Just great. In a day or two, I'll take pictures of a very distinct "character/imperfection" to be found in the kitchen floor.....and an accompanying "celebration". Folks from miles around may be lining up to see this phenomenon.

TO-DO LIST POSTED ON THE LIVING ROOM WINDOW

And if that isn't an oxymoron, I don't know what is. Imagine marching up to the list, tools in hand and a head full of motivation.......and then you spot a Bald Eagle cruising right down the river runway......or see a couple of ground squirrels having the time of their lives. What to do?

TO-DO LIST ON MY BEDROOM WINDOW
And a great view of all of the clearing John R. and Nicole did one great Fall day.......
See why it's taking so long to get this project wrapped up? So much TO-DO......yet, so much to do........

I agree, it really looks fantastic, something about the kitchen being done really makes it feel like home.
