While Rob was busy extracting the bathroom window, I was very busy with other things in the Kitchen.
I washed, blanched, peeled., quartered and drained them. The quartered and drained tomatoes are now in the downstairs fridge waiting for Thursday to arrive before they are incorporated into more Black Bean & Corn Salsa.
I just have to take the chance here our kids don't read my blog, unless of course there is something in it about them they don't usually. I am pretty sure I am safe to post the following picture.
No wonder the old window was rotting and leaking cold air through it in the Winter months, as whoever had installed it had just set it in ... no nails holding it in place, nor any insulation was around it. It had just been sitting there "rotting" ... oh man, where had that person(s) head been at? other then up where the "sun doesn't shine" maybe?
Regardless with much heavy difficult work, Rob got the job done. Once done, I had gotten the mess cleaned up inside while he had been doing the outside trim.
What a huge difference from the old window, with the new one even being a little bigger, also it is a turnout and not a slider, and thermo paned to boot. He will do the inside trim another day...enough done for one day !!! Phew another really "big" job under Rob's belt.
No mention of my 1/2 hour "Walk Away the Pounds" with Leslie Sansone workout today yet? No fear ... I snuck that 1/2 hour in somewhere in my afternoon ... I think it happened somewhere in-between cleaning the bathroom and doing the Celery?
Rob also dropped off a small freezer, love seat and chair down to a friends this afternoon once he was done with the window installation, and before he did the outside trim. We really had to take advantage of this fantastic weather day as much as we could.
After the window trim and celery were done, we headed downtown to pickup some french fries to go along with our dinner tonight.
What a day both Rob and I had with what we had to set out to accomplish done, then some I am sure. Poor Rob's back is pretty much done for awhile, with my neck and arms about the same. The "pack" have been all out, about and back in, the supper dishes done, the dehydrators dehydrating the Celery, and the Tomato juice cooking done. It is time now for both Rob and myself to sit back, put our feet up and call it a day.
Would it be a surprise to anyone, or myself, if I was to say I have a full day planned ahead of me tomorrow? "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
