Ward House

The three P’s

Pounding, purple, and plump.  These three words described my right index finger over the weekend.  It is the result of pinning one’s finger between one heavy a$$ log and the door rim of the outside furnace.  Unfortunately, most of the purpleness is not in the nail so I cannot pierce it to relieve the pressure (though I did try).

In other news, the built in cabinet is finished and wow does it look good!  Now the vacuum cleaners have a place to live other than propped up against the wall somewhere.  I have a picture of that but could not get it to load before leaving for work.  Since the computer crash and the installation of the protective software, the computer runs much slower than it once did.  I was, though, able to load up a picture of the additional lighting that Ronnie installed.  Prior to this track, there was no lighting over the sink; you would have to stand to the side so the one center ceiling light could illuminate what you were doing.

Yipee!  I love this new lighting.

  4. I slammed my thumb in the car door last Labor Day-had to open the door to get it out. It took FOREVER for it to get better. You might just need to take time off from the tasks that you don't like to do…for medicinal purposes, of course! I had trouble grabbing anything with my thumb and fore finger..you don't realize how many times you do that, until it doesn't work right! Nice light! Kitchen redo is on the upcoming list..cupboards that are falling apart and such…not enough workspace problem could probably be solved then, hopefully and like you light that just doesn't go where you need it. The person who designed my kitchen in the 70's didn't plan on cooking in it!!

  5. Karen, you are so right. I had no idea how often I used my middle finger for more than just flipping people off! jk. cannot flip through mittens. =) I believe the 70's were more into entertaining than actually cooking.
