Home Improvement Day

The pain of childbirth, dimly remembered, was endured for just this day. My three sons are here installing my new stove. This was a planned event and step one of updating the kitchen. I am looking forward to cooking Thanksgiving dinner on a fully functional appliance. We’ll be working clockwise around with a new counter, sink, dishwasher. The pantry stays.

While here, one son fixed the double pane window in my bedroom and now I will sleep warmer as it will slide back and forth on track. It’s the little things!

Unplanned is patching the leak in the roof. It is not a good idea to have a roof leak when living in Oregon. We have had torrential rain for over 24 hours. No ground flooding here, but a slow drip in the hallway indicates the roof is leaking somewhere. Hard to keep the plastic bucket under it as the dogs knock it every which way. So they are drawing straws to see who will make the trek up to examine the damage.

Not exactly the quiet Sunday of knitting on the couch that’s my usual routine. Nevertheless this is much appreciated and will eventually make the place more habitable. There’s method in their madness as we all do love their coming over for dinner.

We’re stopping for a break now and big bowls of Microwave Macaroni and Cheese. We had to skip the pancake breakfast though. No pouring the batter down the toaster for us! What a great blessing to have such terrific kids who have all these home improvement skills. Thanks guys!
