Today's supposed to be just like yesterday, temps climbing into the low 70s (F), or to the boarder line of the upper 60s (F). Nice. I do need to go out and trim back the roses. That shouldn't take me long.
The kitchen's moving along nicely. Today is going to be a paint day, and we all know how much I love to paint. Rooting around in the basement, I found a half gallon of Kilz primer that I bought back when it was still cheap... or maybe I should say inexpensive, around $18 a gallon. If I bought it today, I'd be paying between $27 and $31. This is an example of a cost increase just so Behr can hit their 5% growth because for them that's the only thing that's important in life.
I had lunch at Black & Bleu yesterday with my cousin. Usually the food is super great, I ordered a spicy shrimp and chicken dish that was only so so. The waitress warned me it was going to be spicy, as though it were going to be spicy hot and... well, it wasn't. I keep forgetting that for some people spice is terrifying, and the idea that their tongue might tingle frightening as all get out. The dish is not something that I would order again.
I leveled the dishwasher yesterday before going to lunch. This morning I will be securing it in place and running my first, half empty load just to insure that it works. My flooring should be arriving tomorrow at the store. I could have paid extra to have it delivered. Sorry, I'm not old and feeble yet. I can still carry in a 7 boxes of vinyl plank flooring. As I'd said, originally I was going to go with some thing more white and marbly looking but when that was out of stock, chose something at the other end of the spectrum, Chateau Pond. The blues and browns will coordinate well with my backsplash and countertops, and will make my white cupboards pop.
