Halloween is done, and it's too early to decorate for Christmas, so I had time to go to the West Edmonton Mall shooting gallery today. Yes, we really have a target range, with REAL guns that you can shoot! Dang Alberta ROCKS! I had never shot a pistol before so I had a lot of fun with the 38. I am pretty proud of my results, as seen here:
I know some of you are waiting with baited breath to know how my kitchen renovations are going. Five new appliances will arrive this Friday, I can't wait. Our old dishwasher, is from the 60's, that just shows you how good Maytags really are, but it is so loud it shakes the whole house. My current microwave is from the 70's, I bought it with my first, and close to last income tax rebate. I worry about my kids being turned into aliens from all the bad rays coming from it. Finally, my new stove is a gas/convection, expensive but worth it, I hope! We stuck with warm "white" instead of the cold easily smudged stainless steel models. Why pay $500 more for stainless?
Once the dishwasher is installed, we get our new counter, I went with laminate because I can't stand granite.
Here is the before, a factory produced product (from Quebec) that is really dated, but it is real oak:
Or like this, raiding the garden to get to the carrots! Another big no-no, so don't tell the Dogs With Wings people....quiet.
I loved shooting a real gun, my kitchen should be finished before Christmas, and the dogs are doing great. Life is good.
