I’m posting early today because I have a doctor’s appointment.
My daughter is supposed to come over and start painting the kitchen while I’m gone. I decided she didn’t need to do the inside of the open shelves. I painted them five years ago and I already have my dishes in there.
Also I don’t want to waste any more of her time than is necessary. She has a busy life with kids and selling real estate and finding houses to flip or rent.
I’m planning to pay her just like I would anyone else, because she has so little time and I’m so appreciative of her help.
In just a bit I’ll be headed to an appointment with a dermatologist to be checked for sun damage. I don’t think I’ve ever had this done that I can recall. I’ve had this appointment for a long time so I didn’t want to change it.
The kitchen will have to be done in stages. First the caulking and painting. Then the counter top kit and epoxy will need to be applied to the counter top.
Once the counter top kit has been added you have to wait 48 hours before you can touch it. And seven days before it’s cured. I don’t want to take any chances so I’m going to be very careful with the counter top.
And unless there’s more painting to be done at a later date, then that’s probably the time to add the peel and stick subway tiles part of this job.
So this whole kitchen redo will take a few weeks to get done.
I put Charlie’s big basket of medication on the kitchen table while I was working in the kitchen cleaning and sanding yesterday because I had to move it off the washer.
Darned if Ivy didn’t get in there and drag some things off. I got to her before she began to take medication out, that little stinker.
When my daughter gets here I’ll need to warn her about putting any thing down where Ivy can get to it because she is liable to drag it off somewhere. She just has dogs at her house and isn’t accustomed to cats.
Here’s a photo of Ivy I came across. It is from late 2018. She’d only been here about a month at that point. I laugh every time I look at it.
On Friday I will feature a blogger I found from the UK with her small home tour. I’m trying hard to find bloggers out there who live in small homes. And that’s no small task.
Seems most bloggers that I know of have bigger homes. So there may be weeks when I don’t feature anyone because I simply can’t find anyone to feature.
If you know of anyone, I’d appreciate it if you’d please email me.
