Life Lately.

These days I’m still spending a lot of time working on the kitchen. If you ever wish you had a larger kitchen, sand and paint your cabinets. You will be grateful for your shoebox sized space.

The sanding never stops.

I feel like my kitchen is growing. As soon as I think I’m finished, something else pops up that needs to be sanded and painted. I keep crossing my fingers that soon will come a day that cabinets sand themselves.

We got our new faucet and garbage disposal installed! I ended up going with a pull-down, spring-spout faucet. It makes me feel like a chef.

But while the plumber was installing everything, a pipe broke in the wall…

While the plumber was cutting out the sheetrock, he cut through my bedroom wall, in 2 places. Neat!

I realize this situation could’ve been MUCH worse, it’s just one more thing to add to the list of repairs. I know the remodeling to-do list will end someday. Right???

I never shared a final picture of our counter-tops! How could you let me forget?!

Much better. Now on to the backsplash!

We had plans to work on the backsplash this weekend, but The Carnivore has been working like a mad man lately. He actually just got home this morning. He worked from 7:00 a.m. Thursday through 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Straight. He slept in his truck, brushed his teeth at a local restaurant, and bathed in the river. Ok, the last one didn’t happen but it would make the story more interesting.

Anyway, he’s worn out. I’ll give him a pass the rest of the day. In the meantime I’ve baked him mini-apple crumbles. Recipe coming soon!
