Partially Finished & The Start of the Week

We have been trying to finish the remodeling here at the village.  The kitchen was just about done, but we needed pendent lights over the bar and hardware for the drawers and doors. We looked and looked at a lot of different lighting stores, and finally decided on some fixtures from Kitcher.  The first shipment was damaged, but we finally got our order.  We also decided on the hardware from The Great Indoors.

Monday, Ted our contractor came over to install everything.  We’re very pleased with the results.IMG_2811IMG_2814 IMG_2813 IMG_2812 We were having a problem with our dishwasher.  The dishes weren’t getting clean.  We contacted our local repair people and they discovered that the dishwasher was hooked up to the cold water line.  Ted fixed that and now we have clean dishes again.  It’s amazing how the small things can affect how appliances work.

While Ted & I were working on the kitchen, Linda had her biweekly beading club meeting.  This month they’re making a necklace, and I’m anxious to see how it comes out.  She’s feeling much better and is starting to get her energy back

Tuesday I spend in the PC lab as a supervisor.  It’s fun helping people solve problems, and teaching them some new programs.  I’ve forgotten how satisfying volunteering can be since we left Olympic National Park.  I’ll give you a more complete description of the computer facilities here at the village in the future.

Wednesday I got a call from the head of the Photo Lab asking me to sub for the afternoon supervisor.  I was glad to fill in at the lab.  I helped a couple of the more experienced photographers in the club work in the studio with the lighting.  It was fun to learn new techniques.  Here’s a picture they took of me during the session.John-IMG_6483-1 That’s about it for this entry.  Next time I’ll talk about the outdoor concert scheduled for tomorrow.
