Laminate Later

My kitchen tilework ended up being more expensive that anticipated, so I won’t be having the guy do my laminate flooring. But I already bought the ingredients, so yesterday I picked them up and took them home. The new laminate is a good match, and it was inexpensive, so I decided to keep it.

I can’t go anywhere for my upcoming Fall Break. Maybe I’ll learn how to install laminate flooring…

They weren’t heavy, but there were a lot of them to take up the stairs.
They fit neatly in my bedroom.

    That’s amazing that it takes up such little space!

Clearing Things

My kitchen is being worked on right now! Woo hoo!

In preparation for the workers, I cleared everything out. They will be tiling under the stove and refrigerator, so they’ll be moving them. I wanted to make sure they had plenty of room for maneuvering, so I moved the table that is usually by my front door. There’s so much space now!

Since the tile guys are the ones moving the stove and refrigerator, I wanted to make it as easy as I could. The stove is already empty. I emptied as much as I could out of the refrigerator. It looks pretty bare. I should wipe it out before I start putting more food back into it…

Feed the Birds

On Saturday, I got Wendy’s for lunch. I’m not a big fan of fast food any more, but it IS fast, so I still eat it now and again. I like eating at Wendy’s in Kahului because there’s a big parking lot next to it. I like to park there and throw fries to the birds.

There are usually chickens, but on Saturday, there were only pigeons and mynah birds.

Waste Water

My kitchen sink is leaking. At first, it was pretty slow, but it has gotten worse over time. I intend to replace the faucet, but not until after my other renovations are done.

In the meantime, I’ve found a way to use the water that’s leaking. I put a milk jug under the faucet, and periodically take it to my lanai to water the plants. No more wasted water! Good job, Brad!

It fills up in about twelve hours

A Mostly Tasty Treat

I often crave something sweet in the evening. My favorite is cookies. I can eat a whole package in one sitting. I’ve decided not to keep cookies around, because that would be a bad idea. Instead, I have jelly beans.

I got a package of mixed Jelly Bellys. Most of them are tasty. Some of them are revolting. There’s a map, but the actual jelly beans don’t seem to look like the pictures to me.
