José and José spread straw in the backyard. This will keep it from getting muddy in the spring and help to protect the lake from runoff.B1200More 103

I hate noise, and the odors of meals past! So we’re installing a commercial hood (thanks Ryan and Horizon Equipment) that will be quieter and work much better exhausting odors, grease and other effluent than consumer hoods. Since it sticks out farther it has to be up high enough so that people won’t hit their head (though I’ve frequently hit my head on the shallow and loud #ventahood we currently have). We may do a bit of a side curtain on the surround to hide the industrialness of it. Or not. 🙂

Lights have to be moved a bit so that they line up with the boards. This is Frosty’s last day with us as he’s moving to another job. We’ve enjoyed having you here!B1200More 116
