wrapping up

Furniture and cabinets are shrouded in plastic, floors draped in folds of color-splattered canvas. Things a bit messy here, friends. Final painting has begun!

Only a few days remaining in this project of ours and then I’ll resume a more normal posting schedule here. I’ve appreciated so much your understanding and continued support even though I’d go missing for days and days on end. I’ll try to get a simple summer dessert out later today, but know better than to promise.

Again, I ‘m very grateful that you take time to visit me here, amidst the mess and real-lifeness. I SO appreciate your company!

May  your day be light and breezy! See you soon!

    • Sawsan, you ARE a dear! Thank you very much! I’ve really missed keeping current on the lovely blogs I follow (yours, par example!) Almost there though like you say and then something resembling normal again. I think I’m really going to love that! 🙂

  5. Oh Spree, I certainly know where you are coming from…I’ve done this more times than I should admit. The end result will be so nice and after a while you will forget the dust and disruption. We all know what you are going through and definitely understand.

    • Karen I know you know – maybe even better than I ! 🙂 And yes, I definitely do know somewhere in me that all of the dusty disruption will soon be forgotten and we’ll be living in a space that suits us happily. I appreciate your kind words always!

    • I think ms beaucoup that I must share photos of the kitchen this coming week. We’ve had yet another couple hitches in our giddyups this past couple days that will delay completion of our bathrooms (yet again), but hey, my bathrooms aren’t why people show up here, so let’s just get on with the cookin’ shall we?!

      July 28, 2012

    • We’ve been having tons of “fun” for 3-1/2 months now! We’re looking forward to that restful sort of pleasure now more than I can say! Thanks for stopping by Celi!

  12. I’m so excited on your behalf for your kitchen remodel to be done! That moment when everything is back in place, and you look around in admiration and ask yourself, “Why did we wait so long to do this?” is priceless! And the moment when you get out your measuring cups, and bowls and mixer and start baking and cooking again is even better! Looking forward to seeing what beautiful creations come out of your new kitchen!

    July 28, 2012
    • Mar – It’s always such a lovely thing when someone shares our excitement…thank you so much for that! I can hardly speak how anxious I am to get back to the normal, deliciously sweet rhythms of life…it won’t be long now! Thank you again! 🙂
