Tick Tick

That's the sound of projects being crossed off the list.  Tim finished my most excellent spice rack yesterday and we installed it today after arriving at the boat a day early. Where the spice rack is now located there used to reside a group of really terrifically ugly placards that have since been moved to a less obtrusive location on the fronts of the companionway stairs. Now I have adequate room for all my spices (I cook a lot as you know from the Cruising Comforts blog). This frees up room in the glasses rack over the galley sink for, well, glasses.  Imagine that. 

After installing the spice rack we turned on our new light and, being the first we'd seen it at night, we just stood there open-mouthed.  It's amazing the difference it makes in the galley. The pictures don't do it justice, but here's the without light and with light pics:

Without light on

It's amazing how much difference it makes. It makes the galley feel twice the size.  I think we're going to get another one and replace the flourescent light over the spice rack as well.  In addition to saving a lot of amps (the light bar is LED), it should give us even more light and not so much glare. This is one seriously happy galley wench!
