New cook top up close.
I think it dressed up the old 1964 kitchen.

This replaced the Frig that died. It arrived Tuesday.

I put up some of the pictures I had on the old one but not all. I know I need to fix the lake picture as I have the flags turned wrong. Better than no flags.
Maggie is not certain how to react when the ice cubes come out of the door and since it is so shiny she does not get to close to this new food saver.
Would you believe, this is the first frig that I have ever had with ice cubes and filtered water from the door. Until I married Prince, I did not even have an ice maker. I just filled the ice trays and popped them cubes loose. OOps they were plastic now certain plastic are not to be used. For a long time when I was young, we had metal ice trays with a handled down the middle which you would pull back to pop the ice cubes out. Think they will be going back to those?
I am slowly putting things back in the frig and freezer. Last night Prince retrieved the items I had put at the Log Cabin. Some will stay in the garage frig and other will be upgraded to come and sit in the new ice throne. The freezer is wonderful and it has FOUR bins to put items into. Wow, I want be running downstairs as often now.
I am still learning how to cook on the new cook top. First night I boiled the potatoes over. Yikes, "CLEAN UP"..... stove aisle nine. It gets hot faster than the 1964 model. It should because it cost ten times as much. Good thing Prince and I could put it in. We had to measure twice and cut once as this model was a wee bit bigger than the old ones. It was rather sad to see the old one hauled outside Monday night awaiting the delivery people to take it away. Lets see, how many meals do you think was cooked on that old one ? How about two a day for 365 days in a year times forty eight. Lots of food cooked and consummed from that old piece of metal and wires.
The kitchen is the one place that everyone gathers and visits, so it is nice to see the old girl getting fixed up a little even if it was not really planned.
I have been extremely busy this week.Tuesday night we did not get to bed until midnight and we forgot to set the alarm clock and even with Maggie trying to get me up, I just laid there until Mimi called down the call, and then we were in a panic to get Prince off to work.
I have had to go to the grocery store twice this week and y'all know how I feel about grocery shopping. Also, I had to go back to Home Depot and pick up the spray polish and cleaner for the stainless and ceramic. Soap and water did not get the finger prints off that the deliver people left on it.
Yesterday I tackled the bath room shower doors and the actual doors were not so bad to clean but those darn tracks that they slide in would have put Grandma in the grave if she was not already there. Maybe if they were replaced? OOPs must not mention that.
I have had very little time for kitty to enjoy the delightful weather we have been having. Today it was double nickels when I got up and it is 79 now with a very strong breeze. This is the kind of weather that you just wanta find some EXCUSE TO BE OUTSIDE. I guess I could have finished the tree or just sat looking and thinking about it on top of the Massey.
One really good thing happen this week but it also kept us up way pass the sand man time, and that was when Oregon State beat USC in football. I just love it when the under dog gets a win.
I just tried a new Apple Crisp recipe and if it turns out good, I will post it later on Sunday Sharing. That will be dessert tonight after I cook Talipa, mashed potatoes and summer squash.
The Kitty Justice is my fur is still standing up from all the work that has kept me so busy this week. A frazzled kitty to say the least.

Wow! very nice. I will try to come back for another look when I have more time.

Small City Scenes said...

Wow!! New goodies and big ones at that. What fun. Isn't funny how animals do not like changes. they get so comforable in their own world--like some people I guess. MB

Frazzled but worth the new frig!

Lady Di Tn said...

Thanks. Please do come back and check it out again.

It is fun to get new things even when necessary. Not only dogs but our clan even Puppy has trouble with changing of the furniture. I like to change it around but some things have been in the same place since the house was built. When I arrived on the hill, no picture had been hung but the ones Lewis, Mimi, husband who died in 75 had hung. Now we got some everywhere.

Peace to both.

Lady Di Tn said...

Thanks. It is a big improvement.

Lady Di,

I love the new look in your kitchen. The easiest thing to clean stainless steel with is white vinegar. I learned that when I worked in a restaurant in the sixties.

I have always wanted one of those range tops. Let me know how you like it. It looks beautiful.

You've definitely been a busy kitty. Take time now to relax and enjoy the weekend.


Corn Dog said...

PURTY! WOOO WEEEE! I love the new look. Looks great with the cabinets too.

Lady Di Tn said...

Thanks for the cleaning hint. Isn't it funny that the best cleaning items are ones that have been around forever? Vinegar, peroxide, baking soda and alcohol. Peace

Thanks, it does dress the place up. The only thing not stainless is the dishwasher and when it goes, I plan to get a stainless one of them. You know Uncle Jack replaced Mimi's stainless dishwasher, with a new one when they were building there house and staying her, because the old dishwasher did not get lipstick off the glasses. I have yet to find one that will. Peace

Dear Dianne ~~ It is worth being a bit frazzled, when you look at your lovely replacements, It all looks great and will be a pleasure to use the new frige and the new cooktop. What a wonderful surprise for Prince to find the fallen tree all gone. The haymen wanted that wood, so were happy to do that. Thank you for your comments, glad you enjoyed the jokes. I notice your Follower thingo doesn't have the line "Follow this blog" showing
there. Mine went missing a couple of times. Take great care and get some rest, Love, Merle.

I love the idea of this post.

Hanging the baffle on your porch or patio? I use a bunji cord or two and that seems to work when I hang it; and it is on one on the photo you saw.
