I should think you should be able to find them.

It looks right to me. Been a long time since I've tried writing any French, not since high school either. I'm used to reading it as in Canada everything that is prepackaged has to have French and English on it.

Basically that plays a lot into the films.


ETA: Your spelling of Newfoundland is correct. You write it just as you say it.

So yesterday I managed to do a ginormous "kitchen cleanup" -two drain trays and a stovetop of drying dishes, pots, and pans.

Dear daughter and I also picked some late beets out of the garden and they had Swedish meatballs with sauce on no-calorie fettucini garnished with chopped parsley, creamed spinach and sweet-pickled beets (instead of lingonberries) for dinner.

Also set up the "grow lamp" for my herb windowsill (I got a "grow bulb" with a standard base and grabbed a spare desk lamp, so I didn't have to buy a whole lamp).

Had a 2.5 hour phone call "triennial meeting" with our daughter's service provider ... not that they provide a whole lot of service, but her continued eligibility is important for other benefits.

Today I think it's going to be beef and vegetable soup, but tomorrow the weather is warming up a bit so I have some leftover roast pork that I'm going to turn into pulled pork with salad for dear daughter (can't eat crucifers) and cole slaw for hubby - an easy fix.

Today also I hope to dust the house and plant the rest of my herb seeds (parsley, cilantro, and two kinds of basil) and if I manage to get that done, I'll be happy. Also need to plan out a menu and come up with a grocery list so hubby and daughter can do the shopping.

Tomorrow would be sweeping and vacuuming if my energy holds up, and back to cooler weather so maybe chicken and dumpling soup.

Not sure if I posted this already, but I had someone get me some tays of chicken feet for the dog. They were supposed to be the "meaty bone" part of her new diet, but she's not a big fan ... mouths them and drops them, not much of a chewer... and cutting them into swallow-whole-sized pieces was a royal pain. Well I had three trays, wasn't sure what to do with, but confirmed online that you can, indeed, make a decent broth from them (country cooks know this!) so I made an experimental broth from one tray, and it turned into a rich gelatinous broth that I can add to regular boxed broth to punch up the flavor, and it works very well. Not that I would bother to get more chicken feet ("Paws", they call them) but at least I can use up the remaining trays and free up some freezer space, as time goes on.

Dog is doing extremely well on her new "raw food" diet. I don't know if it's the new diet (raw meat, organ meat, veggies, egg/cheese) or the calcium supplement and vitamin she's been getting every day, but she's running around like a puppy again, doing donuts in the backyard, picking up her toy and pestering us to play, and pogoing thru the goundcover looking for lizards. Her fur is soft and her eyes are bright! It's good to see!

all of your descriptions of your dog are exactly the same as my friends dog, after I recommended the dog get Boost. It is a toy dog, several years past life expectancy, which had teeth removed without owners permission, and had stopped eating and had been wasting. I had suggested vanilla Boost, 1/3 of a 8oz bottle per day, or per meal (I forget which now). Delivered with plastic syringe (baster) into the mouth. After a few days, dog would then go to the doggy bowl and eat some again.

Well, that and doing the stuff still left undone from last year - of which there is a LOT! But going through everything category by category and finishing each is the only way I can think of to keep myself organized at this point. Doing a bit of one and a bit of another is just too much for my organizationally-challenged brain to manage.

That was some good work you posted!



Thanks.

Have you thought of permanently putting any heavy appliances onto locking rollers? (Obviously with the locks in front, where you can reach them! And maybe you won't need locks, but here is SoCal I don't want things dancing around in an earthquakes.) That's something I'll be doing when I eventually gut and remodel my kitchen.



I have thought about it, although with the solution I came up with I don't think I need them anymore. I was able to manage to move everything in place on my own and tell my old man he didn't have to come out and help me after he offered. With the boards I'm even able to shimmy the fridge from side to side without damaging the floor and the way they're cut nobody is ever even going to see that they're under the appliances.

Since you've done some research, do you have any links for any products that you've been considering? It's still something I might consider in the future once I've completely finished the kitchen and resurfaced the countertop.

Yeah. The fridge has wheels. But this new flooring, although very easy to lay, is more of a floating floor and it has about 8mm of insulation-foam type backing. It's actually quite comfortable to walk on in bare feet because of this.

But my friend's dad helped him install one in his kitchen a little over a year ago and forgot to bring his boards. My friend was too impatient to wait for is dad to go get them and tried using cardboard to move the fridge back into place and he ended up ripping a "V" shape tear in the brand new floor that hadn't even been down for 15 minutes.

Also, without anything under the fridge (like my boards or a rolling setup), I think with some prolonged time sitting in place the wheels would end up creating ruts in the floor. It was there about 10 days and hadn't done that (to my surprise), but I think with months or years in the same spot it would flatten out around the fridge wheels and the stove's legs.

Moving everything will be easy now, but I'm still strong and relatively young-ish. I think because of the fridge wheels I wouldn't ever have any trouble moving that out again unless I was trying to move it to the side, but moving that stove on my own probably wouldn't be so easy a decade or three from now.





I basically finished the closet before I went to my brothers, but I have a few touchups I still want to make. I'll have some before/after pics when I get those done, then it's onto the pantry.

Well, I manged to do the dusting today. It wasn't a "dust the tops of the door frames" kind of dusting (I did that last time) but I did the big stuff, and it's good enuf.

Also spent quite a bit if time trimming a particularly difficult chuck roast for beef + vegetable soup. Out of 2.7 lbs I managed to trim 1.5 pounds of meat and about 0.2 pounds of scrapings for the dog. There was a lot of fat and gristle on that piece! I try to get dear daughter to pick meatier cuts, but she's not very good at finding them.

Didn't get to plant my herbs today, hopefully tomorrow, along with the sweeping and vacuuming

Dear daughter is helping hubby with the yardwork but there's still a lot to go. But nw that hubby has had to deal with the continual mess that the palm trees make, he's given me the go-ahead to have them taken down. I'll double check with him tho to make sure he hasn't changed his mind.

Climatestations says their LA location got 11 inches so far this year. WOW!

Looking at https://dpw.lacounty.gov/wrd/rainfall/ yearly total, that's actually pretty reflective of central LA northward, and more in the foothills (less towards Long Beach). So the catchment areas were pretty full I'm sure and the aquifer got recharged to some extent.

I know the feeling!

Early in the day, when everyone was asleep. made that pulled pork from leftover frozen roast, and cole slaw for hubby, and found some leftover frozen stir fry pork and cooked rice and made S/F pork and "fried rice" for daughter. Also managed a kitchen cleanup which seems to happen every other day, but that's 6 meals and who-know how many snacks (three people X 2 days) so it tends to pile up. Took puppy-wuppy out for two SHORT walks - to the corner and back is all I could manage, and made up a grocery list for their shopping.

So they went shopping. and I thougt I might have 2 hours of free time to get other stuff done.

But dear daughter texts me, I swear to god, every 5 minutes when shopping ... they don't have this, they don't have that ... when I have CLEARLY gone over the list with her and given her options (if they don't have XXX try the other store, and if not available THEN let me know bc it's on the menu! Or- skip it bc it's not necessary) so its impossible to do ANYthing if I have to drop it every few minutes to answer her texts!! Can't she decide ANYthing on her own, or at least follow instructions?

Then sis, who generously watches daughter while hubby also generously stays with me during treatment, got an ear infection and needed a pickup bc when she gets those infections she gets unpredictable, intense bouts of vertigo which literally send her reeling and would be NO BUENO! to get while driving! Since daughter went with hubby to read street signs I thought I had about 1.5 hours of free time but, once again, daughter was texting me every five minutes.

WTF????

I finally told her i would be reading but NOT ANSWERING her texts bc it takes too long to tap out answers every five minutes!

Anyway, I did manage to plant those herbs which was on my to-do list, and do a quick-sweep around the edges of a couple of rooms where dust really builds up.

But today is treatment day which is an all-day thing, and side effects will kick in in a couple of days once the steroids wear off, and then I'm down for the count for two weeks. so I have two days to get stuff done. Such has been my life lately which is why the extended, frustrated gripe. Not frustrated with them so much as the situation.


At least this is the last one.

Well, better use this wakefulness to get my "go bag" ready so I can grab it and go in the early AM.

Meh, I did more kitchen cleanup instead, putting away the dry dishes and rinse-scrubbing and stacking the dirty ones so sis wouldn't be greeted with two full drying racks and a countertop of filthy dishes.

I have to say the kitchen looks lot better!

Also tossed out peanuts hoping to attract the scrub jays back, altho what I'm seeing are squirrels. I try not to put out too many, bc I want them gone b4 night time and the tree rats, possums, skunks, and raccoons come out!

Hubby did a manly job of pruning the cape honeysuckle, feijoa, and Canary Island pine from overhanging the driveway, and dear daughter helped him cut up/ bin up the trimmings. The driveway is so much more useful now! But still so much more to do weeding, sweeping, and re-landscaping.

He hates gardening, I love it (when I'm not in pain or sick) so I'm really looking forward to recovering. In the meantime, I'm going to try to learn GIMP (Gnu image processor). Bc I have SUCH a hard time imagining how things will look I took a landscape series of photos and hope to manipulate them into a single "plain Jane" image, with many of the plants edited out and the yard leveled, and overlay a series of properly-scaled plant images on top. I hope to make a plan from that.

Hemoglobin was 7 when it should be 13, which is why I could barely make it to the street corner and back. Getting two units of blood this time.

I have a rare-ish blood type. There are all kinds of " factors" on red blood cells, not just ABO and Rh but hundreds of antigens and 30 blood group systems.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5061611/

The main groups are ABO,H, and Lewis.

I have no AB, H or Lewis factors, and until I was 30, no exposure to cyromegalovirus (CMV) so my blood was the plainest ofplain vanilla- suitable for everyone including sick babies. For the longest time I was a constant blood donor and have donated gallons, in my day. But being a universal donor means I would react to anyone else's non-plain vanilla blood. Now that I'm a blood receiver, makes me feel like good karma is coming back to me!

Last treatment, glory be!!!

Back from my walk and just having a sit down.

Also found out that starting next Monday the elevator that goes down to the garage where the recycling and garbage bins are will be out for six weeks. Upgrades. So that means I will have to do everything like that in smaller pieces as I will have to take the stairs from the lobby down to that area. Oh the fun.

Wow Sigs, you must be feeling better. Congrats on the clean kitchen.





Haven't done much here since I got back from my bro's. Think I got the Cobid, since that's been making the rounds in my family. Not going to bother trying to get tested for it.

Nowhere near as bad as the flu, if that's what it is. I'm probably suffering worse from the winter blah's and living through the halfway point of another frigid cold snap that should be ending sometime by early next week.


I gotta get back to getting indoor projects done soon though. I don't want to still be working on them when it's warm out like last year. At least I don't have a huge 5 month project like that kitchen looming over me anymore, and until I have the place ready to tackle the basement (see: watertight), I won't have anything left indoors that will tie me up for more than a week or two at most.


Man... It will be nice to have a beautiful, functional pantry though. I'm excited to see what I can do with it after seeing how the coat closet turned out.

Entire forecast for the week went to shit overnight. Looked like all next week was going to be above freezing, now we don't even get a day in the 30's until next Sunday after three days of snow ending tomorrow, with a low of -8 Tuesday night not including the wind chill.


I see my neighbor out there shoveling now. It looks light, so the blower shouldn't have a problem when I get to it. I'm not going to do it in the middle of the blizzard though. I don't have anything in particular I think I'd even need to do outside the house over the next week, but no reason to box myself in. If there isn't a break in the snow today, I'm sure there will be one tomorrow and I'll blow it then.

Good dose of fog sitting over me but I don't need to go out in it. Got an actual hand written letter to finish so I can get it into the post tomorrow along with an birthday card to go to Alberta.

Yeah. I don't know what I got. It's still hanging on.

Probably didn't do it any good by snowblowing today, but it actually stopped snowing completely around 4PM and I managed to shovel and get the driveway cleared right before it got dark.

Maybe I get lucky and the snow won't be as bad as they predicted through tomorrow and I can get away without having to do it again.


I also managed to clear out my pantry and get all the shelving out.

Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to go shopping for some wood for new shelves. I thought I'd just be able to remove the contact paper, paint them all and put new paper on top, but some of those boards are in really bad shape and are warped as hell. I didn't notice that while they were in for 10 years, but I'm not about to put all this work into something using inferior products.

Maybe you'll get lucky and your hard work won't be undone by falling//blowing/ drifting snow. Then you'll be able to get that wood that you need without having to clear stuff all over again

But then, even if your driveway is clear, you can't go anywhere until the plows come thru. I hope you have good plow service!

What kind of wood would you get? If it were me, seeing how well they're holding up, I would get 3/4 Baltic birch plywood, especially if you're going to be putting heavy items into the pantry. But that's the high-priced stuff. So, if not that- what? Seems like sooner or later, unless you get good strong stuff it will sag and warp. I'd hate to see a lot of hard work go to waste! Your time is more important than that!

Did you hear anything?

It probably isn't really that bad. We got around 7 to 8" yesterday, but that apparently was lake effect snow. It was also very powdery snow, so even though it stuck to my warmer house roof, the garage roof is bare after the wind apparently pushed it all off.

Our snow ended around 4PM so I had just enough time to clear it out before it got dark. When I called my old man last night he said they had to shovel in the morning yesterday, but the show had ended by them around 9AM and there wasn't any all day after that. We're all relatively close to the lake, but I'm a bit down-wind from it and if one of us is going to get lake-effect, it's usually me.

They're saying another 1-3" by 1PM today and I woke up to it snowing lightly. Looks like we already got 1" of that overnight.

So far, so good. A few inches isn't going to keep me from driving my car right over it. I'm only a bit more concerned about clearing snow than I used to be because I have those long plastic drain tubes off of 3 of my gutters. They were completely under snow yesterday and I had to dig them out. An unintended consequence of them appears to be putting a large sheet of ice on my driveway under fallen snow.

FUN!

Oh... They're great around here. Second time this year that I had to be really careful using my blower once I got by the street because I didn't want to be "that guy" who blows his driveway snow all over the freshly plowed streets.

I'm actually glad that they started plowing further away from the curbs over the last few years. We have VERY wide streets around here and I'd get so annoyed that two years in a row they destroyed my frontage just over the curb (the city did come by and fix it both times in the spring). Now it looks like they're playing it safe and staying at least 1 foot away from the curb. My snowblower is a beast though, and even though it was all slush and ice down there it was no match for the blower.


Quote:

What kind of wood would you get?


I don't know yet...

I'm not doing what I did in the closets... yanno, the routing, staining and 5 coats of poly. They're going to be painted with the white enamel I used on the kitchen cabinets and the curio cabinet in and out, and then I'm going to use the same white contact paper for the tops of them.

When I did my coat closet, I just reused the piece of MDF that had a white veneer on it that I bought 1.5 years ago when my brother was in town during the summer. But I did have to install a shelf bracket for the center of that because it bowed in heavy in the middle even though there was only around 15 lbs up there, and not all in the center. Granted, that's a very wide coat closet and the shelf was 47" long.

The pantry is right next to the coat closet, but you enter in from the other side of it, so instead of being a very wide closet, it's a very deep closet. The shelves will only be 26.5" wide. My old man mentioned maybe just getting those cheap MDF boards, but I told him about my problem in the coat closet.

I'm still trying to figure out if I want to do anything else with the pantry other than putting the shelves back up. Taking them down or re-doing things will require some demo since they're held up with small baseboard upside down that runs all the way to the inside door trim at varying heights. But it does seem like quite a bit of wasted space in there since the closet is 38.5" deep from the back of the door to the back wall. If the door itself wasn't made of glorified cardboard, I'd consider installing some shelving for smaller things to the back of it.

Yeah. I'm not looking to break the bank here. Although I know I put more effort into these things than most do, it still is just a closet at the end of the day. I know I don't want to do anything as nice as what I did to the bedroom closets because I want to actually be able to use these things like a normal person would, and I'm so protective of those closets upstairs that they really don't get any use now that they're done.


The shelving they had in the pantry didn't bow in the center from weight. I'm pretty sure they just used inferior wood that had a severe crown in the center (the crown is the warp from front to back of the shelf, rather than a bow being from side to side from the weight).

They figured "hey, it's just a closet, who cares???". And truth be told, I didn't even notice the problem for 10 years until I took the shelving out.

But that's because it always looked so bad from floor to ceiling anyhow. Once I do the work it's going to stick out like a sore thumb like my old kitchen countertop does now that everything else in the kitchen is done (and at one point, I would have told you that my kitchen countertop was just about the nicest thing in that room).

I have some pondering to do. I don't want to rush into anything and have regrets that I didn't think of something before it's too late, but I can't sit on this much longer now that I'm more or less feeling better.

Before/After Coat Closet Pics:

First, I should probably mention that mirror to the right of the closet. That thing has been with me forever since I got it for a steal at $6 from Goodwill. I loved where I've had it hanging since I got this place and didn't want to see it go, but the dark brown stain wasn't going to match the new look, so I had taken it outside on some horses to sand down during the summer and painted it the same white enamel I've been painting everything else. I don't think I ever showed any pictures of the living room or that mirror before.

Just a basic coat closet here, and I didn't really do any upgrades except for beautifying it and installing a shelf bracket in the center so the shelf doesn't bow anymore.


Filthy, filthy, filthy. Yes... this was ground zero for mouse activity back when I had the problem and probably many years before that as well. Although I did deep scrub everything in my house a few years back after the de-hoard, this just stayed yellow at the baseboard trim and above it. It was only now that I realized it was because of the horrible caulk job they had done. There was half wiped up caulk residue all over the baseboard and quarter round and at some points up the walls 2 or 3 inches. Gross.

LOTS of prep went into filling holes and fixing damage on the walls and the baseboard as well as sanding off all that bad caulk. I also removed the quarter round while doing my best to not damage it in case I wanted to put it back up. Or... needed to more accurately. I never want to use it. I think everything looks so much better without it.


That damaged tile ended up causing me a lot more grief than I thought it would. In retrospect, I probably should have just bought a tile at the store and cut out a rectangle on the floor and with the new tile and just stuck it down there to go under the new flooring. At least my friend's dad told me to try using a hair dryer to get the front two pieces up since it would have taken me hours to get them up without gouging the hell out of the hard wood.

You can also see a lot more of the yellowing around the baseboard in this pic, as well as all of the gaps. So much caulk everywhere, but they didn't caulk the baseboard to the wall???? What they did caulk the hell out of was the floor in between the tiles and the quarter round.

Why on earth would you do that!!!!! Quarter round is there to hide your amateur work, not accentuate it!!!!



Here's a pic of the inside after I used wood putty on the various holes and damage on the baseboard used to hold the shelf and the pole. I even caulked around the pole fixture so you won't see any gaps or shadows where you don't want to see them. The board up there is just that cheap piece of veneered MDF I was talking about.

Rather than just use flat ceiling paint all over like most people do, I used my white enamel on the trim both up high and down low, and then I cut in some color using one of the gallons of paint I had bought back in 2019 but decided I didn't want to use in the kitchen and living room. It's got an eggshell finish, so along with the high-gloss trim, it will be really easy to wash if I ever need to.


That flooring is awesome. I'm so lucky I got that remnant with two extra feet on it so I can do the floors in both of these closets.

NOW THAT'S HOW YOU DO FLOORS, UNCLE BOB!!!!!

No quarter-round necessary to hide anything.

I left a little extra outside that I'll cut to size once I figure out a threshold solution after I decide if I'm going to resurface the livingroom floor or not.


Much better.

I even took down the pole, sanded the crap out of it, stained it and put about 5 coats of wipe on poly before putting it back in. It's a little bowed and still nicked up because of heavy coats with metal hanger damage, and it's going to take some abuse if it's going to be used now anyhow, so I didn't want to go too overboard with it. It doesn't look close to as nice as the new poles I made for the bedroom closets that only have light things with plastic hangers.



And now that it's done, nobody is ever even going to see it or think about it again.

So at this end, I've been chipping away at cooking, cleanup, and regular weekly chores (that have turned into every three-week chores.)

Well, yesterday I took the dog for a slightly longer walk, sorted the mail, binned up all the recycling, watered and trimmed the houseplants, wrote up a new menu to account for the fact that I can cook for two more days than expected, and made Philly cheese steak and salad for dinner.

Still not eating meat, it tastes too terrible to choke down, but I'm going to add bland veggies (green beans, corn, carrots, cucumber, zucchini... that kind of stuff) to my dinner.

Today the plan is to vacuum around the edges of all of the rooms/ under furniture and then tomorrow probably get the big vacuum cleaner and do everything else.

Dinner today for hubby is sauerkraut, sausage, onion, carrot, and potato, a simple on-pot meal.

I know it's just a closet, but I can't help myself doing more than needs to be done with things like this and the interior of the kitchen cabinets.

I'm hoping that down the road when it comes time to sell that people will see the little things like this and realize that a lot of craftsmanship went into this place.

Well, thanks to help from a tall person with strong hands I got my front light bulbs replaced. I'd been trying to get the glass shades off for literally months, trying with my hands, using rust-remover, WD40 then thicker oil, and two oil-filter wrenches (one for the fitting and one for the glass). My last effort before calling someone in was going to be heating the outer metal bands up that have the bayonet fittings, that hold the glass in place. But that VERY helpful person was able to take them off by hand for me!

Anyway, I super-cleaned everything up and put some teflon tape around the glass shades where the bayonet fittings are, so with any luck I won't have that problem again.

But there's some other problem I may need to deal with tonight or very early tomorrow. Wait and see.

I live on the top street that goes side to side across a hill. Maybe because it's the only through street from one end of the hill to the other, idk, but it seems like it gets a lot of police/ ambulance/ rescue/ fire traffic. Every 3 weeks or so I see flashing red lights shining through the curtains when I'm watching TV as the whatever goes quietly by. I always wonder what's going on, and where.
