DH phoned and said he'd volunteered our old large oscillating fan to a friend who had a fridge mishap after returning from vacay. The fan's been in the basement for years, and looked like we had used it for rototilling. Dang, it was filthy! Spent an hour washing it and trying to clean it up, and had to apologize to to our friend when he came over. He didn't care, was just glad to have it, and said his kitchen was much worse!

I do have the wider windowsills, but my windows face the north so I don't get much direct light. My plants are doing well, though.

Just got back from picking up my prescriptions. Decided on impulse to get a shampoo and haircut...Shrek likes it. Dinner smells good, so far, it's in the crockpot.

I have a large window but, I also have a steam radiator! It is less than ideal but it is the only option. These plants belonged to various people who have passed away and if they finally die they will be replaced with plastic ones. I just did not want to see them tossed out because they meant a great deal to the previous owners.

Now I'm sitting sipping a CR and watching football playoffs.
So how'd it work Andy? With your attention to detail, I imagine it worked perfectly.

My attention to detail resulted in no water leaks or electrical fires. Samsung's attention to details got the first load clean. It just finished and I took a quick look. They seem clean.

I am assembling a desk. I thought the Swedish stuff was a pain in the arse. This American stuff is twice as frustrating.

Thanks for the reminder. I kept all the stuff out from under the sink until I ran the DW and checked for leaks. Dry as a bone.
