Quickly dropping in with a small update on the kitchen.

Countertops are in, sink is installed, etc.  We are waiting on some replacements for damaged doors etc. which is holding up the installation of the trims but we’re hoping that will be done in the next week or so.

In the meantime, I’ve recovered half of our kitchen chairs and am in the process of repainting my KitchenAid stand mixer (scary!).

I’ve also altered a couple of new items for the kitchen including a sugar bowl (to hold Splenda) as my new counter tops are very snobby and won’t allow the old plastic container to remain on the counter between uses.

DH suggested the expression on the bowl – it’s a local expression so it might not mean much to you but I think it’s cute:


I will be working on some Christmas crafts over the Thanksgiving weekend and I hope to have time to blog about them.  Enjoy the 3 day weekend!
