Normally I would be excited but this entire weekend I have to spend in a classroom. My chief decided it would be a good idea for me to go to this class that is an absolute bore. It is called Incident Command. Basically, what it is if something should happen like 9/11 again I have the tools and ability to run the scene in the absence of the chief. I will know what authorities to call on local, state, and national levels. The worst part is I will be in a class with a bunch of men who do not believe a woman belongs in the fire service. Woohoo!!!! Sounds fun (notice the flat tone in my voice.) LOL. So I will not be able to visit with all of you this weekend, but I'll be back Monday.
Do any of you on here have Yahoo mail? All of a sudden I can't email people with comcast or hotmail addresses. I have always been able to up until about a week ago when I couldn't send a note to my friend with a comcast email. Now last night I received a question from a hotmail account and it got returned that I was spamming this person. I am definitely not doing that. HMMMMM... just wondering.
Well, I decided I would show you my weird kitchen. Remember I have not painted this room yet or changed anything. I can't decide what I want to do yet. WARNING: It isn't anywhere near spotless for these pics. LOL.
Let's start tearing this place apart. See back in the corner behind the crock pot? The handle of the shelf disappeared. That's because there is no cabinet in the corner. It is empty wasted space. The basket up above is on a board to keep it from falling through.
The black cabinet used to be a book shelf. I happen to have these shutters on a wall framing a mirror at our old house, but since I have limited storage and no pantry I had to come up with something. That little drawers beside the stove are not bolted into a stud so they move around.
That is my newer black trash can that I love. Until I get an over the oven microwave to save counter space I put it on top. I got that blanket rack from a yard sale this year.
Now what's wrong with this picture? Yep my sink faces an inside wall. No window to look out. I hate that. Hubby says unless we change the size of the windows this is where it will stay.
Now doesn't this look out of place? A refrigerator hanging out by itself in the middle of no where. And on a 45 degree angle wall. So much for the work triangle. LOL.
Guess what is underneath my window seat. YES I hate the fabric on the seat I just haven't changed it yet. LOL. Yep upper cabinets. Someone took upper cabinets and made them into a bench seat for more storage. See how big my windows are. This is why my sink isn't in front of them.
This is on the other side of the fridge. Like my cords. LOL. I had a dry sink there but the cool air from the AC was ruining the wood. So I had to move it. Another huge window in my kitchen. I love all the light that comes in, but it makes it difficult to plan a kitchen update.
So there you have it. I'll be back later to post my Fat Friday Recipe when I decided what it will be. LOL.
