almost comes together. *le sigh*
Good news: I got my kitchen door installed! Colleague and his delinquent but uber-polite (the kind of polite that comes with many addicts I have encountered) son came over this evening and got it up pretty easily. I think it looks great!( Both sides )
BUT, and it's a pretty big one: the second it was up I noticed two things - a gap at the bottom I don't like aesthetically and that it sways. With no track/runner at the bottom, that makes sense, I guess. I immediately said something about how it wasn't going to keep the cats out at all. The men said, "I'm sure it will." then left.
I shut the door and started getting the cats' dinner ready, with Johnny and Hank inside and Roy (and Abe and Pickle, but they were still cowering in the other room, too upset even to get excited about food) out. It took Roy all of a minute to slide his paw on the inside of the door, pull and let himself in...
Should be fixable. I hope it's fixable! The two inch gap at the bottom should also be fixable I can glue or nail on another piece of wood and paint it. As long as no one examines it, should be fine.
Pickle, on the fridge and unimpressed by unexpected visitors:
While I'm posting pictures, my neighbors across the street with the pooping dogs are big time holiday decorators. They're the Griswalds. They've put up a Halloween display. It startled me the first time I looked out the window and saw it.( Boogedy boo! )
Actually kind of like how that one came out. No tripod.
I also made cupcakes. It's been a long, long month, work-wise and I'm having troubles again not being irritated with "overworked" coworker who is pulling half of the work I am doing without breaking much of a sweat... I digress. Cupcakes. Vanilla with pear compote and caramel frosting. OMG, the frostinnnnng.( Cupcake )
