Saying good-bye to a r-e-a-l-l-y old dishwasher

Today has been pretty uneventful. My dishwasher arrived v-e-r-y e-a-r-l-y. The man who brought it and installed it said "Ma'am, I've been installing dishwashers a right long time and in all my years I ain't never seen one this old. Did it still work?"
Me- "Yes, it worked, but water poured out of the holes in the door. "
Man- "Well Ma'am, if they gave a prize to the woman who got the most out of their dishwasher I believe the prize would have to go to you. heh heh heh."
I suggested that, as my prize, he could just not charge me for the installation.
His response was, "heh, heh, heh."

I cleaned the kitchen today - cabinets [inside and out], and fridge, and stove, - everything. I hated every minute of it, but my kitchen is nice and clean now. And since I don't cook, it should stay that way. ;)

I worked a little on my Halloween project. [Say, I'll do a picture. Okay that took me 45 minutes. After clicking absolutely everywhere, I discovered the little picture on the posting box. Good Job Jane!] Anyhow, I noticed this pattern among some new stash on Wendy's blog. I do love Halloween.
I am going out to dinner with a friend - can't mess up the kitchen you know - so I shall sign off and go get ready.
Happy Stitching!

You have found the best way to keep the kitchen clean: no cooking. Congrats on getting it all shiny to match your new shiny dishwasher.

I LOVE that Halloween pattern - might have to revisit cross-stitch so I can do this one.

I want to do the PIF, but it won't let me comment on that post... sigh.
