8 x 10 inches, Colored Pencil on Pastelbord
Finished with Fixativ Lascaux to be framed without glass.
First the faucet in the kitchen had to be replaced. Then the compressor on the air conditioner went out. (Ouch!) Last week the garbage disposer had to be replaced and Saturday we went shopping for a new refrigerator. Our ice cream was soft!! Yesterday, Joanna and Larry came out and they helped Gene take out the old fridge. Down a narrow hall and out the front down a flight of stairs. We keep soooo much stuff in the hall. A hall tree, trunk, bookshelf with tons of knick-knacks on that and paintings, photographs, and clocks on the wall. That all had to be moved. Gene did most of that.
At any rate, in between we had to eat and watch the Super Regional baseball games and golf. I made homemade flour tortillas, beans, New Mexico red chile, enchilada casserole and rice with meat. Favorites of the kiddos. Ah, we were also baby sitting the grand-dogs. Jennie was away and came back last night and spent the night here before going home.
The new refrigerator was delivered this afternoon, so we are slowly getting the house back together. The men that delivered the fridge were sure they couldn't get it up the stairs, but tried and succeeded. Yippee! We will now have firm ice cream and ice cubes. This last refrigerator did not have an ice maker, the first time since before ice makers. :) We have made cubes in ice trays for about five years. Back to being lazy! The kitchen looks different, too. The old fridge was black and had panels on the front to match the cabinets. This is a regular white one so it is brighter in the corner now!
