Saturday we needed to get laundry done. We also emptied most of the kitchen, the contents are scattered around the place, on the dining room table, in the pantry, in the spare room and shoved into other various nooks and crannies.
Sunday we went to buy the kitchen faucet for the remodel. I also wanted it to have a soap dispenser (so tired of the ugly bottle on the counter).
We stopped into Bed Bath and Beyond as they are closing their Canadian stores, what a rip-off, the best they were offering was 10% off.
Monday Mural from Hamilton.
Monday we finished off emptying kitchen and contractor came around 10:15, Goran arrived around 10:45 to assist. All the doors and drawers were removed. Microwave was moved to living room. Goran had been one of the installers when we had our floors done.
A couple of items were missing from my project plan, prepare sandwiches for lunches ahead of time and take out wet wipes/hand sanitizer for the kitchen, disposable cooking pans.
They forecasted a storm and it started around 4PM but didn't amount to much around here.
It's going to be a kind of limbo week, as we hang around while the guys work. John says he feels like he's in a Hoarders episode.
Tuesday they arrived around 11:15 and finished taking out the bottom cabinets and they had a mess to clean up. Whoever had installed the cabinets had left all their garbage underneath.
Plumber is scheduled for Thursday.
Wednesday the cleaning lady was here. We went to Lowe's and bought the dishwasher. Then we went for burgers at Burger Priest, then the carwash and a stop at Farm Boy for some groceries.
We took a quick trip to the $ store and Sobey's for a rotisserie chicken ($12.99). I wanted aluminum baking trays that we can throw out after using. I don't want to be washing greasy pans in the bathroom!
Friday evening we have yet again, another winter storm warning and it lived up to its forecast.
It started snowing around 7, there was a lot of thundersnow and lightning with some power dips affecting the TV and wi-fi. It trended on Twitter #ONStorm.
Saturday prime rib roast potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Sunday Chinese curry chicken
The goal this week is to reduce the amount of dish washing required as the water is turned off in the kitchen,
Monday (day 1 demolition) leftover prime rib with noodles/rice, peppers and onions. I used the prime rib bone as a base for the sauce, added wine and gluten free Bisto!
Tuesday (day 2) pork chops roast potatoes and corn. I did everything on a sheet in the oven
Wednesday (no kitchen work/cleaner/lunch out) salad/sushi
Thursday (day 3 plumber) rotisserie chicken nachos
