Good morning all!  It’s been busy here.  As with most renovations there are ups and downs.


  • Microwave is going to arrive five days later than planned, but that’s okay because…
  • the people buying our old appliances changed their minds and cancelled…soooo…
  • I have to get busy selling this old kitchen and  the appliances.


  • However, the new microwave is on its way.
  • We were able to borrow a mini fridge from a friend to use in the basement during the renovation.
  • New fridge, stove and dishwasher arrive today.
  • All the main cabinet carcasses are assembled.
  • Someone is coming this evening to look at the old kitchen and see if they want to buy it.

I’ve also been busy in the kitchen.

  • I cut our chives and started chive vinegar to use in salad dressings.
  • I used up some frozen cranberries by making cranberry juice from scratch.  I’m trying to empty out the fridge and its freezer as much as possible.
  • I also made herbed whole wheat baking powder biscuits and
  • whole wheat dinner rolls for the basement freezer.  They will be to accompany suppers during the renovation.
  • I canned dill beans and froze some string beans for later.
  • Plus I made salmon chowder and other main meals for the freezer to thaw and eat during the renovation.

It’s been a busy week.

In rug hooking news, “The Weave” is almost finished.  Just a few loops to go!

If you have been, thanks for reading!  Have a nice weekend everyone!
