Brrr, cold house, and musty smelling when I got up. Bothered by that, not sure what caused it, perhaps the closet upstairs where the back is still open from where roofer knocked it down to check where leak was coming in? Friend of my son's already checked and everything is dry there. Had called roofer last week and he will set up a time this week to come and re plaster that. Anyway, since I couldn't warm the house up, I could warm up my insides - chocolate chip pancakes, with enough left over to reheat some for tomorrow's breakfast, even enough left for 2 if DIL should come and would like some. - Think you can see I miss cooking for a family.
Going to get around and since my windows are bothering me, may start a room at a time doing the insides and the venetian blinds. Nothing like sparkling windows. Cleaned bathroom and kitchen yesterday, so I'm free to pick and choose today.
Enjoy your week-end. SS, hope your new dishwasher got delivered and set up. I'd be lost without mine. All those years when there were 6 of us in this house, no dishwasher (well, the kids, if you can count them!), and never got it until I had the kitchen remodeled about 20 years ago. Glad they talked me into it, because now I couldn't see my life without it. Still do some things by hand, but the bulk goes in there for 2-3 loads a week.
Check in later, have to get a move on.
