Out with the Old…

February 006Our dishwasher was over 10 years old and it started making noises and wasn’t pumping out all the water so we knew it was time to investigate something new. We ordered a new dishwasher and the service man came on Tuesday to take the old one out and replace it with our new one.

February 007Out with the Maytag and in with the Miele.

February 008I think we’ll be happy with our choice.

So much excitement around our town. Katie and I did not make it down to Seattle on Wednesday because my throat was acting up and it was cold. Traffic was gridlocked and they are saying that over 700,000 fans gathered downtown to welcome home the Seattle Seahawks and their Lombardy trophy. Here’s what our outdoor thermometer registered…

February 009That’s cold for the Seattle area! We sat and watched all the T.V. coverage of the parade and the welcome home rally at Century Link Field in our warm family room. Dear went into Seattle before the sun was up and came home with his work computer before the parade road closures started. That was a smart move as he made it home smoothly instead of being stuck in a traffic nightmare with 700,000 people trying to get out of Seattle after the parade.

I found a few more fun photos from our Super Bowl Sunday celebration.

February 003February 001So much fun!

Needless to say my Wednesday was a wash. I did manage to feed the three of us two meals. I also used my time sitting in front of the T.V. scanning more old photos. I’m glad I have something to show for Wednesday. How did your Wednesday go?

  1. We shoveled our driveway and sidewalks 3 times, the last time this morning. I think we got about 9 inches….it looked like someone scattered sparkling diamonds across the top of the snow. Hubby home for two day….joy. Puppy ate her weight in snow and played….joy. It was a beautifully cold day in the sun. Tomorrow we head back into the -15 degree range. Hope you get feeling better. Those pictures were joyful!!!!

  2. Smart move staying home! My throat is feeling a little funky, too, and am getting stopped up. Hate it since I had this for a month already this winter! After work, I went to see the movie “Labor Day”…pretty good and clean. Kate Winslet did a great job. Nice endiing. Have a happy Thursday!

  3. Love the unbridled joy! Congrats on your team’s win!

    My Wednesday was lazy. Very lazy. I am not quite sure what I did, but not much accomplished. 😉

  4. Oh yes…you will enjoy that new model! Now I’m wondering how long my dishwasher will do it’s duty…since it is nearing ten years old.

    You guys had way too much fun celebrating your Sea Hawks!

  5. Looks like you got yourself a beautiful machine. Now you can party on…and let Miehle do the work. Yes, you have lots to celebrate out there. Now we can start with the OLYMPICS! I’m praying that all goes well. My Wednesday was spent cooking meals and visiting our new Princess Ivy.
