"Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?


Recommended Posts

OK my long sarcastic post just vanished.

 

 

So to summarize

 

Dinner was great all home made from Lasagna, to garlic bread to salad.

One rule in house, I cook and DH cleans up and starts dishwasher.

He can trade roles any time, but in soon to be 30 years of marriage is happy I cook.

He can play with food on a BBQ grill

if you call that cooking

 But has no clue on planning, prepping cooking, making sides

 

Dishwasher broke

Damn  crisis mode.

 

So what do I do.

Exit stage left and take a bubble bath,

I never knew you could make that much noise doing dishes. I mean I had to turn up the jets on in the tub upstairs (Garden tub with jets) just to drown him out.

 

So I told him,, no dishwasher start bringing home dinners from you favorite carryout places. 

I'm not cooking. 

We have enough paper plates and stuff.

 

So guess where we are going tomorrow.

 

Yup out to dinner.

Then look for a new dishwasher.

 

Wasn't on the plan especially since we found out we both owe taxes this year, state and federal.

 

Damn

I was typing my dissertation when the Niagara pictures came up.

 

Very pretty, nice job.

 

We did a fall get a way in November and stayed on the American side (But waved to Andrew Lisa and Owen), and then went gambling at Seneca casino.

 

We always went to Canadian side, but for us found so  much to see on American, from forts to falls, to casino.

 

Glad you were able to get away.

Took a quick trip to Niagara Falls yesterday

My parents went there on their honeymoon in 1948.  🙂

 

I have not been there in a long time. Nice pics.

I don't know who's more obnoxious...the guests or the chef who won't cook for the clients and  wants to make it her way.

I don't think I remember such a screwed up charter in the history of the series.

My wife is from Buffalo area so we visit the area often, our first trip to Seneca I hit for 750 on a 5 dollar slot we were with friends so that paid for a great dinner for the four of us. Do prefer view from Canadian side.

Looked outside the window tonight to see the most beautiful moonrise.  Grabbed the iPhone and went out in boxers and a winter coat for 10 minutes.  Not bad for under 40F.

Zoomed in closer for this.

Right now a lot of appliances are in short supply.  I ordered a basic black refrigerator for the lake house in early May, I finally took delivery in late July.

I have some Easter eggs to drop off for family then when I get back I will get my holiday brochures out and sit in the sun with my white strong coffee no sugar.

Hope everyone has a good day.

My dishwasher started leaking just after Thanksgiving , so I bought a new one. It was delivered last week. It was not the one we wanted. Wanted a white one, ended up switching to stainless.

Lisa offered to post a photo, but I suggested otherwise. Amazing what some find funny. 😀

I prefer the Canadian side as well.  The views are better and there is more to do if you are going for a day or two. We stayed at the Hyatt Place the view was not nearly as good as staying at the Sheraton on the Canadian side.

 

This is our spring break and this was definitely not the water I was planning on seeing this week, but we made the best of it.  Our cabin on the Allure would of been much nicer.

I guess it depends on what people say, location location location.

I live in no mans land USA

 

Last night googled and found 4 dishwashers I kinda like, well waiting till I see them.

 

Two of them are GE, one Samsung and finally Bosch (never heard of them).

 

After hating my current broken down model, I will never buy another LG.  lasted 7 years

 

All 4 are in stock at Lowes, and free delivery.

 

Now the question is how much to take away.

 

My DH installed the last one with no issues, but with new floors, not going to happen.  Paying for installation.  If they mess up the floors, then I will have to see what they will do to fix them.   Hope all goes well.

 

Stay healthy

Part of my problem was wanting Black to match all of the 1980/90s appliances at the lake house, and not wanting an ice maker, etc.  We have a very old well, that I have spent a fortune trying to get rust out of the water, so we don’t drink the water.  It is probably not bad to drink but I know what all is in it before I started clearing it up.

This is exactly how it works in our house as well.  Even whatever he grills has been planned & prepped by me. 
 I recall years ago when kids were small, I was sick with strep throat and DH made dinner (which I’m sure was really just heating something up). One of the girls saw him cooking and said “Dad knows how to use the stove???

Funny thing, this rule also applies in our two married daughters households.

Growing up in Buffalo, we'd visit the falls several times a year.  Anytime someone visited us for the first time, we'd show them the falls.  We much preferred the Canadian side also, although that was many years ago.  As a kid, I loved the Skylon Tower.  On the American side, I really like touring through the Robert Moses Power Plant.  I was born to be an Engineer.  😁

Bosch is a very good product in general.  Hope you like one of them.  

My dad has a Bosch and it is the quietest dishwasher I have ever (not) heard.  He does not scrape food bits off and just puts the dishes in and they come out clean...so I would say its pretty good at cleaning.

Second photo is sunset....right?  At least I assume so. Maybe stupid question but...neither pic looks like the moon... (?)  Either way, love the 2nd one!

Have to agree. We just bought a 500 series and thus far really like it.  Love how the door pops open once it's all done. Longer cycle than our old Maytag (which lasted far longer than any new one will for sure), but dishes come out clean and dry. Had an initial problem with it leaking right after installation though. Problem was thankfully a quick fix. We also have a Bosch washing machine ordered but could take months to get it (as did the dishwasher). With our luck our washing machine was probably on one of the box ships that was delayed in the Suez and is now perhaps slowly making its way around Africa LOL.
