Shopping

I set off Friday to do some <shudder>shopping</shudder> for the kitchen. One need: a compact upright freezer, as the one I had picked out and designed the space for having been discontinued by Sears (it was a Kenmore, and I can't find it under any other brand) sometime in the last year. I also wanted chairs for the new breakfast counter, and needed to look for window treatments--the kitchen is on the front of the house, so I need opaque window coverings that are easy to open for the picture window, at least--I open it as soon as I'm dressed to let the morning sun in, and plan to set up a bird-feeding station just outside so I can watch from the breakfast counter. These windows did have mini-blinds in them, but I'd like to upgrade a little from that look.

And in other news, I ran three loads of laundry in the new washer and dryer today. (I did have to flip the breaker on the dryer outlet and turn on the water shutoffs for the washer.) The washer is small (it's a compact front-loader), especially compared to the extra-capacity machine next door I've been using, but I think it will handle my usual-sized loads. Comforters will get washed next door or in a laundromat. Oh, and I used the new warming drawer to keep the barbecued baby back ribs warm before taking them next door for dinner. Things are beginning to work!
