Once that's done, I'll just see how the spirit moves me. My studio is bright and cheerful and, today, wonderfully filled with sunshine. I love being there even on gloomy days. My Glenn was a real sweetheart to have built it for me.
And he is adored by a feline...wow, does he have a brother???

Does anyone know of an easier way?

I have tried a mix of bi carb soda and water, made it into a paste and used that, but that doesnt help a great deal
I thought someone posted a way to clean these parts here a while back, but I don't recall exactly what it was. I think it had something to do with putting the parts in a plastic bag with ammonia? Something about the fumes? Maybe that will jar someone else's memory.

I just finished cleaning everything in the kitchen. Floors to mop and then I'm done.

My stove top is the kind that completely parts out. It's up to you to put that puzzle back together again. If you don't do it right it won't light.

To make it easier to clean, I take the racks and the burner plates off. Put them in a large plastic garbage bag. Put on my mask and gobbles. Spray on Ammonia. Pull the drawstrings tightly, box it up and let it sit in the garage all night. The next day all I have to do is glove up and wipe it down under running hot water. Works like a charm. And I still have finger prints left afterwards.

Up at the crack of dawn & went to the pool early, got my prep work done at work then off to the hospital to see mom. Suprise visit from 1 of my brothers & 1 of my sisters & her kids, drove thru chinese food then finally relaxing at home, full day.

I'm not doing much of anything. Was hoping to get some of the shelves up in my craft room and the whiteboard paint on one of the closet doors (the other will be cork board).

Instead I am nursing a probable kidney stone and/or infection. I haven't gone to the hospital yet - I know all the signs by now and if it is a stone it is still moving and they won't do much unless it is lodged. If it is an infection (which I don't think so at this time), I will have to go on IV anti-biotic which means getting rides to and from the clinic for at least a week. If it is worse by morning I will go, if not, I will see my GP on Monday.

Irony is, next Saturday I am getting a kidney ultrasound (a routine procedure just to see how they are doing).

TB is taking good care of me, making sure I have lots of fluids, helping me up and down, and setting it up so I can use my netbook in my recliner while watching Ladies' curling and catching up on taped shows. I am even sleeping better in the chair! A wonderful gift my Dad left for me was that lift recliner!
