This is looking into the kitchen area of the room. You can see the lonesome dishwasher; it's now the only appliance in the kitchen, and it isn't even where it belongs or plugged in! The dry wall had to come down in this area because some pipes had to be re-routed. The shiny silver one is the new pipe that was put in today.
Now you are looking into the eating area of the room. In both pictures you can see that the ceiling had to be completely taken down for wiring purposes.
D has caught a cold so we went out for lunch today as I wanted him to have some hot soup - comfort food for both of us. We do have a toaster oven, a crock pot, Keurig, and electric kettle and so far we've done all right, but already there are times when we just have to get out.
By the way, the ubiquitous blue pail is in both photos. Today it is catching drips from the upstairs bath tub - another pipe to be replaced!
Anyway, the pail is fun to watch and see where it turns up each day.
