My son and daughter-in-law's kitchen is almost done! Behold, the new cabinets and countertop, the new laminate flooring, and the shiny new double sink and faucet! Sarah e-mailed me this photo last night with a note that says, "Yay! I can finally put my dishes away!!" Today I got another e-mail from her that says, "Yay! I have my living room back!!" When Dylan and Sarah (well, okay, mostly Sarah) decided to remodel the kitchen, they still had wedding presents stacked in the living room from their May 23rd wedding. Then the old cabinets were pulled out, and their contents were also stacked in the living room. Since the first week of June, there's been a narrow pathway through the living room for Dylan, Sarah and their Doberman to navigate through. But no more! The dishes and wedding presents have been put away, and the kitchen is almost finished!
And, over at the Kelly House, there's a little progress too. The corner pieces of the side porch have been painted green, some other trim pieces have been painted green, and part of the front porch has been scraped and caulked. (The house doesn't look substantially different, so I didn't take any pics.) My son's coming over later today (it's the wee hours of the morning now) to drag my neighbor's very tall extension ladder out of storage and set it up against the house. Prepare for posts containing such words as "Eek!" and "Yikes!" when I get around to standing on the bay roofs to paint.
