SPACE and kitchen Islands

Do you have any ‘empty’ spaces in your home? When we make an empty space in the Motor Home, we (I) usually fill it in no time. Just beside my chair to my left is a small freezer. It produces ice (in-trays) and holds freezer over flow. Sherry is an ice eater, she enjoys chomping on ice cubes. Do you know an ice eater?
Anyway the top of the little freezer is a ‘catcher.’ I determined three days ago to clear it off. I did. I just noticed it is cluttered again’
We have storage compartments below our floor, it is called a basement. I pretty well have it full of ‘Stuff’. We store our patio chairs, outside tables and rugs. Two of the compartments have OUR stuff. There is also an area for ‘Sun Drop & cokes’ for visitors. But the most that is stored there is my domain. I have enough tools to rebuild an engine or house. I don’t plan on doing either but one never knows.
I like extra stuff. Things break here and need replacing and fixing, there are Plumbing and electrical tools. So far I have been able to keep up with most problems. Even fixed the two doors I broke leaving out the other day headed for tires. (I hated the damage to the coach, it hurt my feelings, it was my fault!!!) BUT I really am a Tinkerer, It takes tools to tinker.
I have built houses with Kitchen Islands, but never one for us. If I were to build again, I will install an Island with a stove and working space. I am enjoying cooking and I like things handy. I want all the pots, pans and big utensils hanging within reach.
Sherry took care of the last two days meals. Today was my time. I fixed an involved Vegetable soup. I think I used everything we have. At least 8 veggies. I also made applesauce. I make it without peeling the apples. Soon I will try it seeds and all. I am sure it can be done. I love chopping and dicing. An island would be ideal.
Do kitchen islands excite YOU?
There was a period of auto building that the gas tank filler was hid. Below is the '56 Chevy pic I received the other day..
The e-mail was a joke about the '56 being stolen and the thieves could not figure how to put gas in it. do you know?
The left tail light had a reflector you pushed or turned the chrome stick above the light, (I forget which) and the light dropped.
