I just cleaned the plant table in the den, what a mess!

They all got a haircut and a drink but, one job leads to another so I had to dust and run the cleaner, then I had to sweep and mop the kitchen floor.

I should have tossed the plants out the window!

Do you have your plant table in front of a window? I miss my old house, there I had nice wide windowsills, were I had lots of plants. In this house the only place were I would get good light is in a basement window on the south side of the house.

Finally got the new DW installed. All seemed to go well. I'll be running it for the first time after dinner tonight.

Now I'm sitting sipping a CR and watching football playoffs.

Please make sure all the connections are tight. We had one installed last year, and have a plastic tray with little used cleaning supplies stored under the sink. When I recently reached for a bottle of Old English Scratch Cover, the bottom was wet. The whole plastic tray was half filled with water from our DW, which was installed by a "professional". Got under the sink with a flashlight while running the DW, and there was the leak. Tightened it up, and so far, so good, but I plan to check periodically.
