Yesterday, we ventured all the way over to the south side and into Homesense. I purchased a new kitchen clock. The previous clock has become gummed up with grease and after trying to clean it.....and sticking to it.....and trying to make it pass off as clean I gave up. The hands are a knife and fork and the pendulum is a spoon! I <3 it.
Last week, I did surgery on the lazy susan cabinet. Rather, I performed an amputation by totally removing the lazy susan. She was so lazy she collapsed from the weight of holding up "stuff" and I suppose if my job since 1974 was to hold stuff up I'd probably drop from exhaustion too. So, today Hubby and I visited some kitchen cabinet stores....Superior Cabinets, Kitchen Craft, & Tait. The best service by far was at Superior while we found the right wood style for us at Tait BUT after scanning through the Superior pamphlets they too had that same wood. It's actually a laminate or vaneer called Zebrano. The one we liked had a grey stain to it. I can picture the lower cabinets in this while the upper cabinets can be white. We even found a great countertop to go with our ideas.
We are sort of dreaming here. I don't necessarily think we can afford to do kitchen reno's right away. We have other pressing expenses such as replacing the aluminum sliding windows...also circa 1974. But it was fun to see what was available and find all kinds of drawer inserts and cabinet options.
This evening we took a drive to the University of Saskatchewan. We like a trail that starts near where former Prime Minister Diefenbaker and his wife are laid to rest. In fact, it's right behind the Diefenbaker Centre. We took Brandy~puppy along for the ride. She was super excited and barked a lot at people jogging and walking and such.
