Yesterday was pretty much a kitchen clean-up day. A lot of attention is being paid to the floor which is vinyl planks over a subfloor of lauan (fiberboard). Lauan doesn't handle water well. For those who don't know, this is the same stuff they use in making laminate flooring which handles water quite poorly. So far, there is no sign of swelling or warping. Replacing it would be another pain in the ass, added expense.
Since the kitchen is already somewhat torn up, I'm going to ask the electrician how much it would cost to add a couple of outlets. With coffee makers, and mixers, and toasters, and microwaves, a kitchen needs convenient outlets. Mine has 2 and only one of those is counter level.
So, I watched the last episode of the Rings of Power last evening. I was not really surprised by the revelations, but then a long time ago I read through the Silmarillion upon which much of this series is based. Things to keep in mind: these first 8 episodes were only about the Elvan rings, the 5 for the Dwarven kings, and the 9 for man have yet to be forged as does the one to rule them all. Also, Isildur has not been seen since episode 6 and Durin was not seen in episode 8; both have major parts to play (that isn't really a spoiler). Supposedly, season 2 will be out sooner rather than later.
The temps dropped down to 37 (F) last night, not freezing yet. I managed to snap another pic of my dahlias.
