Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator
Dual Fuel/Double Oven Range

Slate Floor Which Now Flows Throughout Den-Kitchen-Foyer-DR

Today's quote of the day, "It's just money!", comes from our trusty carpenter, Phillip. Easy for him to say when he is not writing the checks! I have decided when you give appliances multiple worded descriptive names you can charge more for them. It is supposed to really impress you. Now I don't just have a stove-I have a dual fuel/double oven range. You get the drift don't you??? The floor is now complete and walkable. The cabinet craftsman came today and talked with me about the butler's pantry, so that is now in the works. When they slipped that refrigerator into the cabinet it was like watching a fat lady pull on her girdle-A TIGHT SQUEEZE THAT TAKES SOME SQUIRMING! It will have to be rolled back out for the plumber to hook it up, so that should be fun. The only thing harder than slipping that girdle on is slipping back out of it again!
I visited with The Boersma's this afternoon. Things seem to be about the same, except Dale is experiencing some swelling in his arms. He now has very little movement in his fingers, so top of the prayer list is that computer to come in. Inability to communicate leads to great frustration for everyone!
No exercise today-sitting around waiting for people to show up leads to difficulty in scheduling. One thing I have learned over the years is if I don't get it done first thing in the AM-the odds are -it will not get done! TOMORROW and Tomorrow!

Your new kitchen and floor look great! My parents are doing the same thing at their house.... something about kids being married and out of college.

I love reminds me of home as slate is plentiful in PA. We see big sheets along the road stacked ready to be trucked off to far off places like Ruston, LA. Many of the sidewalks in town are slate and were nice and smooth for roller skating...the kind with keys.

Can I roller skate in your house?
