Miracles happened today!
The oven now heats up!I did keep my promise...dinner was tasty! I christened the oven by baking chocolate chip cookies as our appetizer. We had corn chowder, bread and wine for dinner followed by more chocolate chip cookies.
Almost done! The counter tops did arrive and went in today. The oven did get fixed! The sink and faucet are installed! Tomorrow I hope to have the dishwasher and cook top join the ranks of working appliances. The crown molding should get done tomorrow too. It will be just little things to finish up on after that. My dish pan hands are starting to rejoice!
For entertainment I did some bird watching today. I noted the following 12 types of birds at my feeders in about one hours time: Northern Flicker, Blue jay, Downy Wood Pecker, Cardinal, Mourning Dove, Carolina Chickadee, Dark Eyed Junco, Nuthatch, House Finch, Gold Finch, Mocking Bird and Carolina Wren. I was bored in the house since it was horrible weather for getting out and the place was filled with various workers. I'm not into t.v. during the day so watching the birds was great. I had my binoculars, my laptop (for species identifying) and my comfy chair. If the workers needed me, and I did get called upon several times, I was easily assessable.
Of course I did hear about lazing around from a few of the men in my house...one husband and contractor! Good thing they didn't see me eating Bon-Bons while I had my feet up too! :)
