What's For Dinner?

The mess while the range hood is reconnected!

Back to Normal!
Hi! Well, after much back and forth and an almost threat I finally had the kitchen people send out a contractor to re-connect my range hood. The first two photos show my kitchen turned upside down! It took him about 3 1/2 hours and the job was more involved than I thought it would be. When the contractor saw the screws that held the hood he could not believe it, he said I was very lucky that it did not hit me in the head! He had to pull out the range, which had been secured into the studs, that took him some time to reach under the oven and get to the screws. After he hung the hood he stood back and had to start over again because it was off by over 1/2 an inch on the left. Thankfully the contractor was pleasant but I was happy to see him go so I could clean and get back on schedule with things I had to do.

The good news was that after he pulled out the range I got my Vermont Sign back! That made me happy, very happy. I now hung it on the other wall next to the fruit. If it should ever fall again it will only bruise the bananas! I hung another little picture over the range, it hung in the kitchen before, I moved it into the family room and now it is back in the kitchen. I was going to leave the space empty, but it looked empty! I had hung my BIG clock there before, but after the backsplash was installed I could no longer hang the clock, the clearance from the top was too tight. When I moved the clock one hand fell behind the range and I now have that back too! Now, I can watch time fly by!

Today I have a lot to finish up and want to use Wednesday to relax before I head to Walt Disney World on Thursday. There will be a lot of running around when I am there, fun times with my sons and their families and then I bring my two grandsons back home to spend time with us.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe week!

OMgoodness! How scary that must have been when the hood fell down. I am so glad you got out of the way in time!! The kitchen looks wonderfuyl all put back together. I love the painted cabinets!!

We still have over 50% of our retirement income in CD's, moey market ets so we only moved our more liquid assessts into those accounts. DH knows all about fees and and all the charges involved and carefully chose the accounts based on all that. We also use ING as well as some others. To say we are diversified is quite an understatement! LOL My DH manages projects in the ranges of $25 - $50 milion dollars and keeps track of them down the last penny so this is nothing for him to manage for us. But you do have to know all the ins and out - as I said = homework and research!!

LOL New golf clubs for Father's Day yes.. a dry sink... not so much but good try! If I do get it, can I say you said it was OK??

Have a great day Martha! hugs, Linda
