H is for Home Improvement
In the never ending quest to improve the house, I have made a three page long list of projects around the house. Some are small (like get the carpets cleaned) while some are huge (new countertops for kitchen and bath). Some we can do quickly (paint the vents in the bedroom) and some we won't do for awhile (plant shrubs outside...we are in a drought and they would die).
This year we have replaced the back door (see D is for Door post) and just last week we got our new stove delivered. This time we only had one delay (the range hood was backordered). It was supposed to be delivered between 8-12 and at 11:15 I got a call saying they would be there shortly. Good thing Dan was home that day and I wasn't sitting around the house waiting for the guy to get there. Dan sent me all sorts of pictures of what it looked like under the old stove when it was pulled out. He had the cleaning supplies waiting so it would be spic and span.
Now I just have to get used to a convection oven, super powerful gas burners and adjustable racks in the oven. I'm almost afraid to use it and mess it up but of course I'll be cooking on it this weekend.
