The sudden change to cool weather has brought me out of hibernation.... or I guess estivation is a better word. Summer always slows me down, and cold motivates me to GET SHIT DONE. The GET SHIT DONE impulse led to two long-overdue fixes: (1) Replaced a latch on kitchen window. The latch wore out after 70 years of use. Like everything in this house it was non-standard, and I had to buy several different latches from Ebay before finding one that would serve. Thank heaven for Ebay. Before it came along I couldn't do these things at all! (2) Removed a cabinet door that was a hazard, and was likely to become more of a hazard as I get older. The kitchen is EXTREMELY narrow, and all doors have to be closed immediately after use. I've forgotten to close this one three times in five years, and bumped into it each time. Simple and obvious solution is to remove the door. Can't bump into something that isn't there. (There are other cabinet doors, but this was the only one that opened into a dangerous position.)
