Aquatic Art

I went through my files looking for an image to use in a design. Upon my search, I became distracted when I discovered some images that, well, had slow motion blur, and I liked them. They looked like abstract paintings to me. I decided to remove the current photographs that I had previously uploaded to my FineArtAmerica account and add these aquatic images.

There are Hammerhead Sharks, Seals and Sea Lions, a Leafy Seadragon, jellyfish, and a Green Moray Eel, plus a sea fan, a clownfish, a lionfish, a cardinal fish, a China Rockfish, a barracuda, a butterfly fish, and a grouper.

The Wet Kitchen

Today we went ahead with the flooded kitchen clean up. The mold marking the dry wall clearly showed that the dishwasher was the culprit of the leak. The leak was going on since we moved in to this house, but we didn’t take any action until it came gushing through the outside wall, because the water was at first in small amounts that was misstaken for spills.

Lesson: give all spills a thorough investigation.

With the cabinets and tiles pulled we still wonder, is there more damage and how much worse will it be? We haven’t even gone to demo the effected rooms downstairs or into the garage, those rooms will have to wait a little longer. One room at a time.

Found: spatula, kitchen towel, spoons, meat thermometer.

Advice to people with counter top cookers, remove the cooktop and clean the grime underneath once in a while. That was a gross discovery.

Now, we wait to hear back about the lanolium floor before any more work can be done in the kitchen. We have our fingers crossed in hopes that the abestos test comes back negative.
