Monday morning and I'm sitting here patiently waiting for the appliance repairman to appear. Our fridge isn't working - great timing when it's been 90º outside for days. Leo thinks it's the compressor and if so, a new fridge is probably in our future. Then comes the fun of trying to find one that fits in the old one's footprint.
Our dishwasher has been leaking for years - yes years, but we can't find a new one that would fit in the same spot as the old one. They now make them higher or lower - I can't remember which. It's not like the one we have is ancient - it's probably about 13 years old - same age as the fridge. So every time we run the dishwasher, we have to remember to put a towel in front in case it leaks - it doesn't always leak - it only leaks when you forget to put the towel down.
Our current appliances are all almond and our kitchen cabinets are bleached oak - they look good together, but, you guessed it - they don't make almond appliances anymore. So, if we have to buy a new fridge, we either have to go with white, black or stainless steel and then it won't match the stove - which still works perfectly.
Why do they have to make everything so difficult?
On the quilting front, I did finish a quilt this weekend but since it's a bit of a secret, I don't want to show the front right now. It did get Ben's full seal of approval though:
