Charlie is at acupuncture. He’s had a tough week coughing. This wet cold weather doesn’t help any.
Every day I’m doing something in the kitchen for my new redo project. Whether it’s filling nail holes or sanding I’m trying to get this room prepared for the countertop kit that should be arriving soon.
This morning I managed to get the drawers pulled out (that I don’t use and Nathan nailed together). I have to take the pulls off so I can paint them if necessary.
I put in a work order for them to try to fix these drawers, but nothing has happened yet.
Then on Friday my girls are taking me to an early birthday lunch. (My birthday isn’t until next week. Age number 63 here I come!)
I’ve been looking at peel and stick subway tiles online and also drawer and door pulls (I’m thinking maybe gold?)
Everything will be disrupted till I get this project done and I’m having to take it bit by bit because of my ankle.
I’m one of those people who plunges ahead and wants to get it finished no matter what. It will get done. Just maybe not on the time table I prefer!
It rained yesterday and it’s raining today. So not a good time to paint anything.
This kitchen project is decidedly different from the iterations that came before it. Over the past six years I’ve wanted lots of color and busy decor.
This time I’m going for a more serene look. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s just that my tastes are evolving. I want a clean scaled down kitchen that’s easy on the eyes.
The house plants are loving the cool mist humidifiers I keep running for Charlie. These house plants brighten my days until I can garden outdoors.
Thing is, I have to keep everything stacked in the middle of the patio until the company comes to work on the considerable damage to the wood on the back of my apartment.
And of course who knows when they’ll get to me. There are a lot of apartments in this shape.
This may mess up my timetable of starting to plant the last two weeks of April.
I’m hoping they come sooner rather than later!
Here’s silly Ivy straining her neck to watch light on the ceiling. She is just obsessed with shadows and light.
One of you mentioned getting reader glasses specifically made for computer screens, etc. I had some long ago. Don’t know what happened to them.
I came across a pair while in Tuesday Morning last week. And they really do reduce strain on your eyes. So thanks for that tip!
Gotta go pick up Charlie boy soon. See ya tomorrow. Rain, rain, go away…
