We went to see the Dirty Projectors who were really exciting.  Apparently, David Byrne was there, but we’re too unlucky to be aware of that.

Full-sour garlic pickles are my new favorite snack.

Finally got to installing that sucker.  Not a good picture but I really like the way it looks.

Here’s a little project we did.  Our fridge is old and dingy and after much scrubbing we realized there’s nothing we can do about it.  So we had to cover up.

Dinner of the week- whole wheat alfredo, artichoke, tomato, spinach with grilled chicken.

Getting Ready for Spring

April 30, 2009

This week ended up being pretty productive.  Earlier this month I had purchased a 4×4 section of tin ceiling from Second Chance Inc. with the intentions of making a backsplash for the stove.  The back was very rusty and I put off taking care of that for the entire month.  Finally, the weather was inspiring enough to get it done.  Some elbow greased wire brushing and windy Rustoleum spray painting took care of it and the back was as good as new.  The front is now a pretty, light, and airy “Icy Mint.”

I’m still working out the installation for it but I’m thinking backing it with felt and hanging it with wire.

I’ll put a picture after I hang it.
