My New Kitchen Sink

Well part of buying an old house is continual maintenance. The dishwasher that came with the house still works, but makes a very loud squealing noise when we turn it on. So since it is 30 years old, we figured it was time for a new one. Another problem we had is a gurgling noise in one of our sinks whenever you pour water into the disposal side. (We had a double sink system.) So I wanted it replaced with a single sink. 

    Before with our old stainless steel double sink.

The new sink.

It is really deep too. I love it! I also love the spray handle nozzle.
You can pull it down, and swivel it side to side. You can stream
the water or spray it. It also has a soap dispenser. No
more bottles of dish soap all over the counters.

And I even organized underneath. Now that we have one
compact disposal in the middle under the sink. I had
room for this bucket. 
I can now just pull it out to access all my cleaning supplies.

Spring Break Week

This week we are taking our Spring Break. We are going bowling one day, to the zoo another day, hanging out and just relaxing a little. We are also getting a new dishwasher installed and I hope to get some of the deck painted during the week. (If the rain will stay away long enough.) I also hope to get a little Spring Cleaning done.

Mini books on US symbols, Grand Canyon, and Natural resources.
