My brother in law came for a visit here in Florida. Upon arrival he asked if I had a project he could do around the house. I told him I would like bookshelves in my weirdly vacant nooks in the living room. And PRONTO, they were built. I'm really chuffed with them. You don't get a better house guest than this.
In other news, the dishwasher once hooked up was apparently full of mold and once we started it up, we literally had to haul it out to the backyard. The stench was awful and unfortunately we have to replace it. We can;t take any chances now that the kitchen has been rebuilt due to water damage.
Still no word from the Insurance Company to tell us the claim is approved. And it appears that Geronimo, the plumber who installed the tap and sink and cut his finger and bled all over my kitchen, must have been in a bit of shock, be cause the cold tap is leaking under the sink. And so it continues............but the lovely shelves make up for the shoddy kitchen work.
