The Kitchen

Yesterday the much anticipated kitchen arrived and the crew started putting it into place. Waaay back in oh, about May of last year, when we were toying with moving, building or adding on to this house -- after looking and finding nothing that matched this place in price range/affordability and/or property wise, we concluded that adding on was our best option.

I tried to convince the Engineer that we didn't need a new kitchen. My old one worked well enough, but he insisted. The funny part is, that once that decision was made, it was as if the kitchen heard and decided to begin really falling apart. (I'd like to believe it was more God telling stubborn me that He has my best interests at heart). Our sink kept leaking, the water purifier was losing its seal, the cupboard doors were coming apart (again), and the tap was literally rotting out from the counter top. What a mess!

We've been living in our rustic, minimalist, country kitchen for two -- or is it three (?) weeks now -- not long compared to some folks I'm told. I've been getting lots of exercise running up and down the stairs to get cutlery, dinnerware, measuring items, food, etc, etc. The dining room table has sat in four different spots through this process, and really none of us are going crazy yet.

However, now that I've seen the new kitchen going together, I am super excited! We picked everything out in January, so I'd pretty much forgotten what most of it looked like. It's looking beautiful! The wood we chose is so warm and natural. I can't wait to see what it will look like with the counter top in too. It'll will be another week or so for that though :oS.

It's a wonderfully rainy spring day here -- complete with thunderstorms. Thankfully all the guys are working inside today. I'm going to do some ironing and see if I can't get a couple of sewing projects completed. Hopefully we don't lose power too often or I will be hand sewing instead :oD!



  1. I'm hoping that one day soon it will stop raining around here. Otherwise, I am getting my ark design plans out.

    Glad to hear all your projects are going well. Hope you get a travel date SOON!

  2. I love the colour of the wood! A new kitchen is exciting. We re-did ours a couple of years ago too.

  3. How Exciting!! May The Lord Bless all the time you spend in that beautiful new kitchen ~Love Heather

  6. I'm not going to be jealous. Nope. Not me. Love the peek at the drawers! Can't wait until it is all finished.

  7. Deborah,
    I love the colour of your cabinets. Looking forward to seeing your new kitchen!

  8. The fact that you're not going crazy yet speaks volumes for your temperament! Attitude is everything. I can't wait to see the unveiling...

    Blessings, Debbi

  9. I'm so glad it's all going so smoothly! PRETTY!

  10. Your light hearted patience with this remodeling project blesses me. I hope you will be able to share when the remodeling is completed.

    Where are you presently cooking? I am remembering when my husband decided to remodel our kitchen over the Christmas holidays one year.

  11. exciting! I really like the colour of the wood you chose. Looking forward to seeing the finished product!
